Richard Silverstein Lying? Must Be A Day That Ends In A “Y”

Hardly a day goes by when the Israel haters lie about something to advance their nefarious agenda, and as readers are aware, none lie more than DouchebloggerTM Richard Silverstein.

In fact, if I had to document each lie of his, it would be a full-time job and even then I would not have time to eat or sleep.

Alas, I occasionally do call him out on a lie, just to keep my dosier of his lies updated.

This is what Silverstein posted on his Facebook page yesterday.

If Silverstein is to be believed, Israel murdered a palestinian boy in cold blood, and lied about him being a terrorist with a suicide belt.

And now for the facts.

Mohammed Salah was no boy, unless 23-years-of-age is considered to be a boy. Even the article Silverstein is sharing mentions this as his age!

Salah was no innocent. He was a member of terror group al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade, something even the BBC admits, as well as the AFP who include this in their report:

An anonymous caller from the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, an armed offshoot of Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat’s Fatah group, on Saturday claimed that Salah had been on his way to carry out a suicide bombing in east Jerusalem in the Neve Yaakov Jewish settlement in the area.

The exact circumstances of his death are disputed to this day. It basically boils down to the IDF vs witnesses. I personally tend not to believe palestinian “witnesses” since I have found them to be lying on so many occasions. However, even if you do not accept this, the fact remains there is no proof for Silverstein’s claims. Furthermore, he has outright lied by referring to Salah as a boy, and lied by omission by not mentioning his terrorist affiliation.

Silverstein takes us all for fools. But he need not look further than the mirror to find one.
