One Incident, Two Versions

The International Solidarity Movement (ISM) claim they have eyewitnesses to the killing of PLO Arab boy Khaled Maher Walweel, who they say was shot dead by the IDF.

Saturday morning an Israeli soldier firing from inside a military jeep shot dead seven year old Khaled Maher Walweel. When shot, Khaled was in his home near a 2nd story window. The bullet pierced the window hitting the boy in the neck. In the street below two military jeeps were making their way out of the camp under a barrage of stones.

But even Reuters, not exactly known for its pro-Israel coverage, saw things differently.

A six-year-old Palestinian boy was shot dead when a Palestinian gunman opened fire at an Israeli military jeep during a raid in a West Bank refugee camp on Saturday, the Israeli army said.

Television footage taken of the incident by foreign television networks showed a gunshot ricocheting off an armored Israeli jeep toward an upper floor of an adjacent building.

Twenty seconds later women’s screams could be heard. Moments later, a Palestinian holding the limp body of a boy with blood on his face and neck is seen outside the building. A Palestinian gunman was filmed in an alley minutes before the incident.

Another case of the ISM caught lying. But would we expect anything different from an organization that openly admits on its website to lying?
