    Default Israel, and when a picture tells a thousand lies.

    1. Log into Facebook and click on the link below (on the Facebook page of a public representative from a large inland county) which allegedly deals with the killing of a child called al-Dura by Israeli forces.

    2. Click on the picture to enlarge it.

    3. Then right click on the enlarged picture and select the option that lets you copy the image's URL/link address.

    4. Go to images.google.com.

    5. Click on the wee camera icon in the search box.

    6. Paste in the URL or link address that you've just obtained from Facebook and click on Search by Image.

    7. Read any of the links returned.

    8. What was the name of the child? Muhammad al-Durah.

    9. Who killed him? Palestinians.

    Of course, the individual who posted the misleading image above possibly did so unwittingly. Not so the one in the post below.

    A similar Google Images search reveals it to be photoshopped fraud.

    Photo fraud: CNN resurrects the Rachel Corrie libel | Shraga Simmons | Ops & Blogs | The Times of Israel

    Spreading lies by textual information is easy but someone can come along with an authoritative source and expose the liar and his/her lies. Exposing a lie is somewhat harder to do when the liar is spreading the misinformation in graphic form. It's still a lie though.

    I've seen other examples here. I'll dig them out in due course.

    Eh....why not just email the guy and let him know he's made a mistake? We're all human.

    He didn't even post that image himself. He just shared it from another group. Very few people will double-check a Facebook post before sharing it.

    Muhammad al-Durrah incident - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Its quite a complex incident - as this 30-odd page wikipedia article details. Its not clear to this day who shot the child as they were caught in a firefight amid high confusion.

    The father and son were in a street where there was a gun battle between Palestinian and Israeli forces.

    They were hiding behind a concrete cylinder and it would not be too hard to see how a soldier might have thought he was shooting at a gunman crouching behind it.

    Alternatively with automatic rifle fire going back and forth it is also possible that the boy was hit by a stray bullet or else by a ricochet.

    But what is most likely is the boy was never shot and the whole incident was fabricated by the Palestinians.



    There was NO autopsy, NO bullets were recovered and the only evidence is very suspect footage and questionable evidence from the France 2 camera man - a Palestinian.

    Middle Eastern politics is rife lying, propaganda victories, distortion and censorship concerning what really constitutes motivating factors of various involved entities.

    The most dishonest of the lot are the Wahabbist factions.
    Coveney's ambition is the be Ireland's next EU Commissar and Ireland will pay a price as he builds his CV to position himself sufficiently loyal to the nEU empire.

    Whoever fired the fatal bullet, you can't argue that the child was shot on Palestinian land after Israeli soldiers left their own land and started shooting.

    I have it on very good authority that the individual in question has been contacted regarding the erroneous nature of his post and is aware of this.

    What incidents led the Israelis to occupy the Gaza Strip in 1967?
