Crocodile tears

Crocodile tears.
This morning, we're treated to reports of yet another "Zionist massacre," this time in Bethlehem. As is usual, it was quickly followed by a media-driven, openly wailing funeral.

The one question that nobody in the press sees fit to ask?

"Why was this boy hanging around with armed terrorists?"

No surprise, as usual. Will the press ever question its role as shameless propagandists for terrorist groups?

Check the full article for the entire photo sequence, including additional illustrations of Palestinian human shields in action.Those Dastardly Zioniststm!

Israeli troops stand ready during clashes in the West Bank city of Bethlehem September 12, 2006. Israeli troops shot and killed a Palestinian teenager in Bethlehem on Tuesday as they confronted protesters during a raid to arrest a wanted militant in the West Bank city, medics and witnesses said. The violence erupted when troops surrounded a house where they later arrested a militant of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, a group linked to the mainstream Fatah faction, witnesses and Israeli military sources said.

Confronted.... "Protesters?!"

Protesters carry signs. They do NOT surround themselves with gunmen!

"Taking part in a military operation?" It looks more like they're joking around with the photographer to me!

Was she shot? What was she doing in the line of fire? Magnus, as usual, can't be bothered to wonder.

Yes, this is what happens when you act suspiciously in a war zone.

Hmmmm.. let's see.

Palestinians vs Isreali SOLDIERS
Palesinian youths vs Isreali SOLDIERS

Isreali soldiers shot a tear gas grenade INTO a van while the palestinian stood by and then only ducked when the tear gas started coming out of the vehicle. Seems rather "odd" that this man would stand in the same spot when a tear gas grenade was shot at his direction. From my pessimistic view, I think he tossed something into the passenger side of the van and then ducked when it exploded.

Here is a question. Isn't it against Muslim law for a man to touch a woman? And there are nothing but men carrying this woman. And, women RARELY EVER are involved in these Pallywood incidents.

And, yes, it is mostly the teenagers that throw the stones at Isreali soldiers and vehicles. I'm sorry, but if I was in a battle zone and there are people with guns nearby trying to shoot me, and there are people throwing stones at me trying to harm me, I will do what ever it would take to get those people to stop. Most times, they shoot rubber-coated bullets. Sometimes, ricochets fly in all directions.

Yeah, I noticed the sentence structure: "...confronted protestors...". Could it be that the Isreali soldiers were the ones that were confronted by the Palestinian soldiers during an Isreal raid on terrorists? Could it be that the photos of the Isrealis are holding in a defensive position?

Here is a question, why do these kind of photos always carry extended captioning? What in the photos shows context for the statements in the caption that a young palestinian soldier was killed?
