Al Jazeera & The Little Attempted Lyncher

AJ+, the “edgy” version of Al Jizz aimed at millennials, has recently come out with a video lionizing a young palestinian who was hit by an Israeli in a car – after standing in front of it about to throw a rock at point-blank range – immortalized in this iconic image.

Young Omran Mansur survived to tell the tale – to impossibly good-looking AJ+ host Ahmed Shihab-Eldin (who we can call Zoolander for short)

Zoolander provides no context as to how Omran was run over, instead giving the boy free rein to spread his propaganda.

Omran claims he just happened to be there that day at a sit-in demonstration, and as he was leaving, “got caught up in an altercation, throwing rocks.” What does that even mean? That he lacked free choice?

He then claims “a settler came out of nowhere,” ran over him and drove away. Yet even the mainstream media at the time, which still painted Omran as a victim, told a different story.

The child had been part of a group throwing stones at Israeli cars following news the country’s military had killed two Hamas militants in the West Bank city of Hebron earlier on Friday.

The majority of the boys, with their t-shirts wrapped round their heads to disguise their identity, were lined up on either side of the road near a zebra crossing ready to attack the vehicle.

Two members of the group were positioned in the centre of the road – leading to the collision, with the motorist apparently driving straight into one of the boys.

In other words, Omran planned to be there, in response to an IDF action against Hamas, and was waiting in the center of the road to ambush a vehicle. And by ambush a vehicle, I mean attempted murder – how else can you describe throwing rocks right at the windscreen from point-blank range?

Naturally, we should take everything else Omran says in the video with a grain of salt. And once again, shame on Al Jazeera for this propaganda and glorying “resistance.” I cannot wait until you are thrown out of here.

By the way, if you want to know more about how the MSM actually colluded with Omran and friends to try and demonize Israel, see here, as well as the below video.
