« "Our Country is Going Down" | Main | ANC Endorses Letter of Incitement »

May 22, 2008



"But now...the Hoax is over."

And yet, I'm prepared to bet big bucks that you'll see Al Dura, together with the Protocol's at DURBAN II, your local lefty braai and the Little Mosque on the Prairie.

The more things change ...


Believe me the discovery of facts means nothing to Israel-haters.
They will never let something as mundane as truth or facts to stand in the way of some good venomous Israel-bashing.
Canadian ultra-left Israel-hating academic Michael Neumann said: ""If an effective strategy means that some truths about the Jews don't come to light, I don't care. If an effective strategy [of helping the Palestinians] means encouraging reasonable anti-Semitism, or reasonable hostility to Jews, I also don't care. If it means encouraging vicious, racist anti-Semitism, or the destruction of the state of Israel, I still don't care."

Steve, although the actual reasons behind/surrounding the event seem to have been a lie, let's not forget that a boy did actually die here. Perhaps the word hoax, is a bit strong to describe his death.


Why have the names of Jewish children deliberately killed by Arab terrorists been completely forgotten?


On 21 May 2008, the court overturned Karsenty's libel conviction. It found that his claims had clearly been "undoubtedly damaging [to] the honor and reputation of information professionals". However, the court found that his claims were nonetheless within the boundaries of permissible expression in the context of media criticism. The judge commented, "it is legitimate for a monitoring agency to investigate the media, because of the impact of the images which were reviewed across the world, [and] on the conditions in which the report was filmed and broadcast." The court ruled that the evidence presented by Karsenty "did not allow it to rule out the opinion of [France 2] professionals", but rejected Bartoli's assertion that Karsenty's evidence was "neither complete nor serious". Although the court did not endorse Karsenty's views, it stated that "the examination of [the] rushes [makes it] no longer possible to dismiss the views of professionals heard during the case" and had put in doubt the authenticity of the reporting.
Karsenty told the press shortly after the verdict was issued, "The verdict means we have the right to say France 2 broadcast a fake news report, that al-Dura's shooting was a staged hoax and that they duped everybody - without being sued".
In response, France 2 pledged to take the case to the Cour de cassation, France's highest court.
