The al-Dura hoax


France 2The news pictures of the alleged death of Mohammad al-Dura have triggered horrible bloodshed from Palestinians. Philippe Karsenty who have raised his voice against the use of the footage and questioned its authenticity has been subject for persecution in court after he openly criticized the French television station France 2 for broadcasting a lie. However, last week a French court made a verdict, in which Karsenty won the appeal against his libel conviction. The court ruling shows that there are serious doubts in the way France 2 has used footage from Palestinian video photographer Talal Abu Rahma. It is likely to believe the footage is faked.

After the verdict Philippe karsenty said these words, according to Honest Reporting:

The al-Dura lie is an assault on our ability to think, to criticize, to evaluate, and finally to reject information – especially the right to reject information on which we base our most cherished assumptions. One of Europe’s most cherished assumptions is that Israel is a vicious Nazi-like entity that deliberately murders Palestinian Arab children. Moreover, polls conducted in Europe have identified Israel as the greatest threat to world peace, greater than Iran and North Korea, Pakistan and Syria. The al-Dura hoax is one of the pillars on which these assumptions rely. …

Now it is time for France 2 to acknowledge that it created and is continuing to perpetuate the worst anti-Semitic libel of our era.

  1. Bullcrap! The evidence was in the LIVE broadcasting of this incident, which I witnessed myself, and not in what the Israelis claim. Since when do Israelis admit to anything? Over 100 refugees were once killed while in a shelter in Lebanon. Israel claimed it was “in error” as it always claims.

    The fact that 18 minutes of the 27 minutes of footage was available in the trial is comical. How did the footage conveniently disappear? One wonders if the filth of Mossad – the same thugs who killed Jews in Iraq and the Arab world so that the blame would fall on Arabs – is not involved!

    The footage that happened to be airing live on that horrific day is planted in my mind forever. The only people who did this are the Israeli thugs.

  2. You have to ask France 2 about the missing minutes. Apparently, it would show how the whole situation was constructed, and thus, they did not want to show it as it would reveal how they are twisting the truth in common Pallywood style.
