* A Palestinian journalist has complained that the media and others areÂ manipulating the images going out to the world:
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Fat Fatima got it: did she inspire Rage Boy?
“A mother of one of the martyrs stood by the door of the intensive care unitÂ
while crying… relatives and those around her were telling her what sheÂ
should say to the television cameras: ‘Say your son [before he died] prayedÂ
and went out.’ Another tells her: ‘Curse the Arab leaders’... TheÂ
journalists [in the hospitals] are going overboard in their insensitivityÂ
and taking advantage of the [difficult] moments, with the explanation thatÂ
they are showing this to the world. One cameraman told a mourning mother:Â ‘Hit your face, cry, do some action.'”

5,000 demonstrators and riots in Londonistan over Gaza
Iran: Headbangers Storm UK EmbassyÂ
Demonstrators stormed the compound of the British Embassy in Iran, the Foreign Office has confirmed.
The incident happened at 1720 GMT (2050 local time) and reports claimed the occupation lasted for about an hour.
A Foreign Office spokesman said the situation had been resolved and all staff were safe and accounted for.
He could not confirm reports that the demonstrators were protesting against what they see as British support for Israel’s air strikes on Gaza.
There were also unconfirmed reports that the demonstrators tore down the British flag and hoisted a Palestinian standard in its place.
Iran: Students (i.e., “Muslim youth”) raid British Embassy
Trying to emulate their “righteous forbears” of 30 years past at the US embassy?
Surely Khomeini would be proud. Even though “Britain has called for an urgent ceasefire,” that’s not good enough. Nothing will ever be good enough — not allowingÂ sharia courts to operate in Britain, norÂ financially supporting Hamas. The more you concede, the more will be demanded of you — till you live in complete submission in accordance to Koran 9:29: “Fight those who do not believe in Allah, nor in the latter day, nor do they prohibit what Allah and His Messenger have prohibited, nor follow the religion of truth, out of those who have been given the Book,Â until they pay the tax in acknowledgment of superiority and they are in a state of subjection.”

Cairo Demo against Israel:
Molotov cocktail against Chicago synagogue
Debbie Schlussel is not wondering whoÂ threw a Molotov Cocktail at a Chicago Jewish temple. With a very large Palestinian Muslim population in that city, it’s hardly a mystery who would pick now–in the midst of Israel’s bombardment of Gaza terrorists–to attack a synagogue in America. (Well, Muslims wouldn’t do a thing like that, because Islam is a RoP. It would be un-Islamic, right? /sarc off)
EU and NIF-funded NGOs Lead Condemnations in Gaza Conflict
Following the pattern in previous conflicts, a number of NGOs immediately issued condemnations of Israel following the IDF response to increasing deadly rocket attacks from Gaza.
