Child’s Play

How can someone simulataneously be a girl and a woman?

Answer: When palestinian sources are reporting it!

While Ma’an refers to the 16-year-old female who reportedly died of complications from injuries sustained during Operation Cast Lead as a “young woman,” IMEMC prefers the propaganda value of using the word “child” (not to mention the photo of a way-younger-than-16-year-old-girl)

Yet the IMEMC report does reveal something very interesting – the 16-year-old was being treated at Jerusalem’s Hadassah hospital. And although that fact is mentioned in a negative light..

Her father, Kamal Abu Jalala, told the Safa News Agency that the administration at the Hadassah hospital is responsible for his daughter’s health, and added that the administration is refusing to grant him a photocopy of her medical file.

..just think about it for a few seconds. A palestinian has been treated in an Israeli hospital.

Now think about this for a few seconds: Would palestinians agree to treat an Israeli in one of their hospitals?

Yeah, me neither.
