The Israeli government has officially denied any involvement in the killing of Muhammed al-Dura , who's death triggered the start of the Second Intifada against Israel. Muhammed al-Dura and his father were caught in cross fire between Palestinian terrorists and Israeli soldiers. A reporter from France 2 television was filming the clash, focusing the camera on the boy and his father cowering behind a building. The camera drops from the boy for a few seconds, and when he comes back into the picture, he is lying on the ground. The cameraman can be heard saying in the background, "the boy is dead". Only 59 seconds of some 27 minutes of the footage have ever been aired by the media. A French judge has ordered that the television network broadcast the remaining film to find out who really killed Muhammed.
Quote: ""The creation of the myth of Muhammad al-Dura has caused great damage to the State of Israel. This is an explicit blood libel against the state. And just as blood libels in the old days have led to pogroms, this one has also caused damage and dozens of dead," said Government Press Office director Daniel Seaman. The arguments were based on investigations that showed that the angles of the IDF troops' fire could not have hit the child or his father, that part of the filmed material, mainly the moment of the boy's alleged death, is missing, and the fact that the cameraman can be heard saying the boy is dead while the boy is still seen moving.
The remainder of the film contains other unexplained mysteries... A Palestinian man is struck in the leg by an Israeli bullet, and is picked up by an eagle-eyed ambulance driver two seconds later before he even has time to finish rolling around in the dirt. In another incident, a wounded man is carried on a stretcher into the back of an ambulance, but jumps out of it again a few minutes later. It's what has become known as Pallywood, the manipulation of the media by Palestinian terrorist organizations waging a propaganda war against Israel. But as we saw during the Second Lebanese War, the manipulation of the media is not limited to Palestinian terrorist organizations. The New York Times complied with the anti-Semitic propaganda, publishing staged photographs of one Hizbullah worker playing dead for the cameras, supposedly killed in the collapse of a building following an Israeli airstrike. Reuters published photographs of one unfortunate woman whose house had been blown up by Israeli aircraft on no less than two separate occasions. Reuters also published pictures of an Israel F-16 aircraft, supposedly firing missiles at a Lebanese town. The only problem was the three missiles were actually a single flare that was being dropped, and the aircraft was taking evasive manoeuvres to avoid being attacked by Hizbullah fighters. And who can forget the picture of Beirut going up in smoke, thanks to the artistic talents of the same Reuters journalist. That's just the tip of the iceberg. They would have gotten away with all of this, were it not for a determined few who were prepared to question the official version of events presented to them by the mainstream media. One common thread runs through all of this, hatred of the Jewish people
During the tribulation period, the mainstream media will play a significant role in inciting hatred of God's people. Perhaps through the modern technology of mobile picture phones, CCTV and satellite technology, the whole world will witness the slaying of God's two prophets in the streets of Jerusalem (Revelation 11:8). As Palestinians rejoiced at the deaths of those caught up in the attacks on the Twin Towers, and give sweets to children following successful attacks on Israeli civilians, so all the world rejoices at the news that their tormentors have been killed by the Beast, and give gifts to one another. It will be a terrible time to be on earth during the tribulation period. You don't have to be. Trust in Jesus Christ for salvation today, and be counted worthy to escape all these things which shall come to pass.
