Le Mont de Sisyphe
My Photo
Location: Zurich, Switzerland

Je suis beau et intelligent. À part cela, je suis juriste helvète, libéral-conservateur, amateur d'armes, passionné d'histoire et de politique. Je suis libéral et capitaliste convaincu car je pense que c'est cela l'état naturel de l'homme. Je parle le "Schwiizerdütsch" avec un accent zurichois, j'adore la bonne musique, la bière et surtout la femme avec qui je vis.

Pallywood II: Al Dura, what happened?

After "Pallywood", the "Second Draft" has achieved its investigation on the Al Durah case. If you don't know what Pallywood is, you better watch this video first. If media bias on the "Intifada" is already common ground for you then download the movie by clicking on the above image (You can also download the video here, it's 43mb for 14 min.). Don't forget to look at the materials at the the Second Draft's site.

In short, Mohamed al Durah was the boy who was said to have been cruely shot by israeli soldiers in september 2000. The Palestinian cameraman Talal abu Rahme took the shooting for France 2. The boy Al Durah has since then become a sort of an icon for the Intifada. But at the same time, serious doubts have arisen on the whole case specially on whether it was staged or not.

In any case, this is a good opportunity to remember those days at the end of september 2000 and the media battle that started then. Another nice example is this famous picture of couse:

HonestReporting on this totally absurd story:
On September 30, 2000, The New York Times, Associated Press and other major media outlets published a photo of a young man -- bloodied and battered -- crouching beneath a club-wielding Israeli policeman. The caption identified him as a Palestinian victim of the recent riots -- with the clear implication that the Israeli soldier is the one who beat him.

The victim's true identity was revealed when Dr. Aaron Grossman of Chicago sent the following letter to the Times:
"Regarding your picture on page A5 of the Israeli soldier and the Palestinian on the Temple Mount -- that Palestinian is actually my son, Tuvia Grossman, a Jewish student from Chicago. He, and two of his friends, were pulled from their taxicab while traveling in Jerusalem, by a mob of Palestinian Arabs, and were severely beaten and stabbed.

That picture could not have been taken on the Temple Mount because there are no gas stations on the Temple Mount and certainly none with Hebrew lettering, like the one clearly seen behind the Israeli soldier attempting to protect my son from the mob."

Do you still believe everything the media tell you?
