Jenin: Haditha: Gaza School, lie, deny ignore repeat

The pat­tern of how news is reported by our media when it comes to either Israel or the west seems to have been estab­lished. Report an atroc­ity, Con­demn it, orga­nize protests, demand con­ces­sions and then the actual facts come out:

There was just one prob­lem: The story, as etched in people’s minds, was not quite accurate.

Phys­i­cal evi­dence and inter­views with sev­eral eye­wit­nesses, includ­ing a teacher who was in the school­yard at the time of the shelling, make it clear: While a few peo­ple were injured from shrap­nel land­ing inside the white-​and-​blue-​walled UNRWA com­pound, no one in the com­pound was killed. The 43 peo­ple who died in the inci­dent were all out­side, on the street, where all three mor­tar shells landed.

Sto­ries of one or more shells land­ing inside the school­yard were inaccurate.

And then of course comes the yeah buts… How peo­ple still fall for it is beyond me.

For what is actu­ally hap­pen­ing go to Israel­ly­cool and the Muqata

The pattern of how news is reported by our media when it comes to either Israel or the west seems to have been established. Report an atrocity, Condemn it, organize protests, demand concessions and then the actual facts come out:

There was just one problem: The story, as etched in people’s minds, was not quite accurate.

Physical evidence and interviews with several eyewitnesses, including a teacher who was in the schoolyard at the time of the shelling, make it clear: While a few people were injured from shrapnel landing inside the white-and-blue-walled UNRWA compound, no one in the compound was killed. The 43 people who died in the incident were all outside, on the street, where all three mortar shells landed.

Stories of one or more shells landing inside the schoolyard were inaccurate.

And then of course comes the yeah buts… How people still fall for it is beyond me.

For what is actually happening go to Israellycool and the Muqata
