Remember the “Al Dura” affair? Al-Dura Death Video was Staged:
“The creation of the Mohammed al-Dura myth did great damage to the state of Israel,” said Government Press Office head Daniel Siman.Â “It was a blood libel against the state… it caused damage and dozens of deaths.” INN Here’s more>>
From Ma’an, March 30:
A child was shot and killedÂ east of the Yasser Arafat International Airport in Rafah on Tuesday, medics said.
Muawiya Hassanein, director of ambulance and emergency services in Gaza, said Muhammad Zen Ismail Al-Farmawi, 15,Â was shot dead near the southeasterly border by Israeli forces, while local sources who wished to remain anonymous said the death may have been an internal matter.
Hassanein said ambulances had been unable to retrieve the body because of ongoing clashes in the area, whileÂ an Israeli military spokesman said he had no knowledge of the incident.
DPA adds witnesses to those who claimed the boy was killed:
A 15-year-old Palestinian boy was killed Tuesday near the border area between the south-east Gaza Strip and Israel,Â witnesses and security sources said.
Witnesses saidÂ that Mohamed al-Farmawi, 15, of the southern Gaza Strip town of Rafah was shot dead by Israeli troops after he approached the fence along the border with Israel, which lies east of the town.
Gaza emergency chief Mo’aweya Hassanein told reporters in Gaza that medical teams and International Red Cross Committee (ICRC)Â coordinated with the Israeli army to collect the boy’s body.
Multiple witnesses and Gaza officials all agree that the boy was killed and even that his body was recovered. You can’t do better than that, can you?
Apparently, you can. FromÂ Ma’an today:
Just more evidence that the veracity of Gaza “witnesses” and Hamas officials is approximately zero. Not that this will stop reporters and NGOs and UN fact-finding missions from believing them the next time they lie, and the time after that, and the time after that….
Vlad Tepes Youtube Problem:
Mark Steyn has said it many times and many ways, most notably perhaps in his excellent book, America Alone. Now, pointing out hate speech is the real crime while the actual hate speech being pointed at goes unchallenged…
Vlad Tepes was specifically cited for hate speech. Below, is the actual video in question.
