Palestinian boy staged his own death?

May 30, 2008

I treat reports that the footage of a Palestinian boy being shot by Israeli forces with great scepticism. French courts do get it wrong – NZ has finally granted former Algerian MP Ahmed Zaoui refugee status, after denying it based on dodgy French trials.
The blindingly obvious questions are:

  • Is the boy dead?
  • If dead, why would the boy take part in fake footage that leads to his own death?
  • If not dead, where is he?

I note the reports of the ‘fake footage’ seem to rely upon ‘independent’ investigations by Israeli army sources. These lack any credibility. Who would believe an investigation by a murder suspect that conveniently finds them innocent?
