IN MEMORY OF A LIFE THAT COULD HAVE BEEN


Ten years ago today a Palestinian child, aged 12 was killed by Israeli sniper fire. Literally adding insult to injury, the zionists claimed that this incident was ‘staged’ by the Palestinians as a publicity stunt. One often wonders how low the zionist can sink, this was truly one of the lowest levels ever.

Mohamed al-Durrah would have been 22 years old now, perhaps entering his second or third year at university or preparing for marriage, but he was murdered at 12…

Mohamed is not the only one…. From the start of the second Intifada in September 2000 until the end of this September, Israel has killed 1859 – one thousand eight hundred fifty nine – children   under the age of 18.
Mohamed al-Durrah: In Memoriam 

By Agustin Velloso

September 30th, 2010 was the tenth anniversary of Muhammad al-Durrah’s killing by an Israeli army sniper 

There have been thousands of Palestinian victims at the hands of Zionists like this little boy, martyred at the age of 12, some younger (even in their mothers’ wombs), some older (even while in bed), and all of them deserve to be remembered.

However, Muhammad al-Durrah’s murder took place on the second day of the 2nd Intifada and can be seen, during these days of yes/no peace talks and no more Intifadas, as the crux of the Palestinian plight ten years later.

No matter how many peace talks are held, no matter what the international community “contribution” is, or what the Palestinian Authority in Ramallah says and promises, Zionism keeps on killing, maiming, stealing… in short, practicing slow motion genocide in Gaza and ethnic cleansing in the West Bank.
How many more Muhammad al-Durrahs will face his fate in the next ten years?

From the start of the second Intifada in September 2000 until the end of this September, Israel has killed 1859 – one thousand eight hundred fifty nine – children   under the age of 18.

Even if they number in the thousands more in the future, they will only be missed by their families and friends.

The rest of the world, if the news manages to reach them, will only know what the wikipedias and other Imperialist/pro-Zionist media tell them:
What they are calling the “Muhammad al-Durrah’s incident”, i.e., “being caught in a crossfire between Israeli soldiers and Palestinian security forces”, excuses the IDF: “An IDF investigation in October 2000 concluded the IDF had probably not shot the al-Durrahs”, or better yet: “the scene had been staged by Palestinian protesters”, not to mention that “for the Israeli and Jewish communities the Palestinian allegations were a modern day blood libel, the ancient anti-Semitic association of Jews with child sacrifice”.

Thanks to U.S. friendship, Israel continues to pour salt on the wound.

Let us hope that resistance turns the tables before this continues another ten years.

    Yet another example of the “Most Moral Army in the world”.

    From my (very) local paper:

    French Media Analyst to Debunk Intifada Footage
    Markham-based Jewish Defense League of Canada will be one of three sponsors bringing in Phillippe Karsenty from France to speak in Toronto on November 11.
    French media analyst and founder of Media-Ratings – a media monitoring organization – Mr Karsenty recently won a defamation case on appeals in 2004, when he was sued for libel by the French television network, France 2, after accusing the network of having broadcast staged footage of the reported killing of a 12-year-old Palastinian boy, Muhammad al-Durah, during a now-famous gun battle in the Gaza Strip in 2000.
    “The media has largely contributed to demonizing Israel and denying Israel’s right to exist,” said Mr Karsenty at a Boston conference in early October.
    Karsenty said that the Israeli government apologized for teh incident initially with the assumption that the camera doesn’t lie – and that French TV could not have been anything like the government-run Arab-world media, he said.
    But when CNN rejected the film, and when French TV stalled in providing the 18 minutes of raw footage, red flags went up. “France 2 edited it and thought they had the scoop of the year,” he said.
    Within days, aerial and satellite maps of the gunfight between Israeli and Palestinians had shown that al-Durah and his father, crouching at a wall, could never have been hit by Israeli forces.
    Part of Mr Karsenty’s data-rich case includes the fact that no blood is seen captured on the film despite the claim by witnesses that dozens of bullet rounds were shot over the course of 45 minutes in the al-Durah’s direction.
    As such, bullet holes denting the wall surrounding al-Durah – large enough to fit a thumb in – would cause profuse bleeding when piercing s body part, maintains Mr Karsenty, who will explain in expanded detail what he believes was an elaborate hoax, at the event.

    The Hasbarites never quit. Any typos are probably mine.
