It’s Just So Hard To Believe Ha’aretz
From an otherwise unremarkable Ha’aretz piece about looking for the evil murdering SOB terrorist who stabbed father of four, 29 year old Rabbi Itamar Ben Gal, yesterday:
According to Palestinian reports, Israeli soldiers raided the town of Kifl Haris near Ariel. Security forces suspect the terorrist fled to the town and are searching Kifl Haris and other neighboring villages. The head of the local council of the town, Abd al-Rahim Buzaya, told Haaretz that the army blocked all the entrances to the town, did not allow anyone to leave and confiscated security cameras from the stores in the village.
The phrase “confiscated security cameras from the stores in the village” is meaningless nonsense. Did they really tear down all the cameras and carry them off with dangling cables in a big sack?The writer probably means “took the digital recordings”. It’s possible they took the physical recording units though that would be dumb because then the cameras wouldn’t be working. What the Ha’aretz writer says here leaves us no way to know what actually happened.
It’s sloppy writing that leaves me doubting everything else they write.
And ask my how much sympathy I have for Arab villages rousted and raided after one of their sons murders one of ours.
