Yet Another Blood Libel Busted

180

Fresh from exposing the lie of the “brother’s blood”, Israeli blogger A Mother In Israel uncovered yet another one being disseminated bya tweeter going by the name Syrian Commando.

As you can see, the same child – purportedly a boy named Ala’a Habroosh killed by Assad’s forces in Syria – was featured in a tweet from over a week ago.



Methinks Syrian Commando – being a pro-Assad Syrian and all – was all too familar with the real context of the photo and knowingly used it to deflect the blame towards Israel. Heck, it’s a tactic that has been working for decades in the Arab world.
