Latest Libel: The Case of the “Recycled” Palestinian Kid

A few days ago, anti-Zionist-not-antisemite “Steven Fox” accused Israel of a heinous murder (update: seems to have been an impersonator)

At this time of this post, it has been shared 192 times and triggered many comments damning Israel.

Naturally, it is an outright lie.

You see, Mohammed Nabil Salam was killed by IDF soldiers.

But he didn’t have a kidney disease.

He was killed as he attempted to stab soldiers. In 2016.

But if you don’t want to believe me, believe hate site the Electronic Intifada.

These are the Palestinian children killed by Israel in 2016

Muhammad Nabil Jawdat Salam, 14

Muhammad was shot dead by a private security guard near the Shuafat checkpoint in the Jerusalem area on 25 November. Israeli police claimed that the youth had attempted to carry out a stabbing attack. No Israelis were injured during the incident.

So here’s what happened. Steven Fox was looking for a way to malign Israel. He found the name of a palestinian killed, and invented a story about him, perhaps not paying attention to the year of his neutralization.

This was no mistake. This was a malicious lie.

Such is the way of the Jew hater.
