Blood Libel of the Day: Just a Bad Driver Edition

The ever reliably evil Palestinian Information Center has posted this “tribute” to terrorist Fatima Taqatqa.

Fatima Taqatqa, 15, killed by Israel.

F Fatima Taqatqa, from the town of Beit Fajjar near the West Bank city of Bethlehem, was shot by Israeli forces after she drove a car into a group of soldiers at the Gush Etzion junction near the settlement bloc of the same name on 15 March.

Israel alleges that Taqatqa was waging a car ramming attack when she was shot. No Israelis were injured in the incident.

Fatima succumbed to her wounds more than two months later.

Security camera footage shows Taqatqa’s car driving at a high speed over a median and crashing into a barricade, behind which the soldiers were standing.

More than a dozen Palestinians and three Israelis have been killed at the Gush Etzion junction since October 2015, according to the Ma’an News Agency.

F Fatima Taqatqa? Indeed, I could not agree more!

But note how PIC is suggesting she was shot for no reason – the car ramming attack was a mere “allegation.” While they admit “she drove a car into a group of soldiers” (a coincidence to be sure, right?), no Israelis were injured! Surely this is proof she was not deliberately targeting them.

Here’s the security camera footage of the “incident.” Notice how the car is not spinning out of control. It is directly targeting the soldiers.

Plus the PIC matter-of-factly mention that this “innocent” victim was a 15-year-old driver, not for one second realizing that it is illegal for 15-year-olds to drive.

Such is their hate for Israel, they will make the most ridiculous of claims to try vindicate their heinous crimes.
