Muhammad Tamimi Contradicts Other Palestinian Accounts of His Confession

With the anti-Israel and antisemitic online community deciding conclusively that Muhammad Tamimi was shot by the IDF – as opposed to a bike accident per his confession – we have yet another version from the palestinian side.

If you recall, his neighbors had claimed he told the police that he had been hurt in a bike accident and not shot by the IDF because he was scared and worried that if he said he had been shot, there would be evidence against him and his detention would be extended. Then we heard version two from his uncle: he never confessed to falling off his bike at all, despite the IDF demanding he sign a paper saying so.

Now I have been made aware of yet another version – Muhammad claiming he beaten into making the confession (and the version I predicted in my original post)

“We were in a car on our way to the interrogations and there were two Israeli officials who kept beating me in my face, back, everywhere and kept telling me that I had to admit it was a bicycle accident,” Mohammad told Mondoweiss.

Three very different versions. Why is it that they cannot stick to one story?

I think you already know my opinion as to why this is the case.
