"‘Did Media Overplay Israeli Denials on School Massacre?’
January 9th, 2009

In coverage of the shelling of a U.N. school in Gaza that led to dozens of civilians deaths, including many women and children, the press prominently played up Israel’s claims that its soldiers were taking mortar fire from the school compound and they responded, blaming the whole incident on Hamas. Now the Tel Aviv daily Haaretz reports that the U.N. is saying that Israeli military officials have admitted to them that there was no fire and that the mass killing was “unintentional.” They also suggest that Israel released an alleged video of the episode — but it turns out it came from 2007. More to come when available. Meanwhile, the NYT confirms that at least 30 members of one extended family died in the shelling of another building, as they were left to die, with the U.N. suggesting this may be a “war crime.” — Greg Mitchell
Please keep this incidence in mind the next time Israel makes any claim or prevents any evidence.

How do you know when Israel is lying?
They open their mouths.
Never in my life have I seen such a band of serial liars and murderers!
