Latest Libel: The 4-Year-Old Boy Shot By The IDF

A number of Israel haters have posted on social media photos of a child supposedly shot by the IDF – even using it to justify terrorism.–lz6DRb8DcQrPW67cI5wyKSziz6ShRIUdwAxZi4bwgGAzbbnnemJquguW4EhNL4HZPPpaR8kbbMECuGXBuQjZ99TUooKkvC88QrdWnMHKyoxYSczg3LsxVWJ3rM1rK8oBjRTzhV2ValzbTjyAp2h9WL3M9pWTW6krXp4GdVIjU-ygD7vnVxxEdMHMXKMEOOimUuJbIVeJVzJz7Nxt7X9gwyBmuJiPJCz_sCYQ182gHfe2vUSxctun1z_qwzs&__tn__=-R

Note that last Facebook post has over 27,000 shares as of the time of this post!

Naturally, it is yet another malicious lie directed at the Jewish state.

No, the kid not Syrian (this time). He is a palestinian Arab. But according to this posting on a Palestinian News Facebook page (which precedes all of the above ones), he was run over by a car in Hebron.

Note how they do not even accuse a “settler” of running over him, as the palestinians constantly do (even when not the case at all). That’s probably because¬†Wadi al-Hariya is in the H1 sector of Hebron, fully controlled by the PA. Israelis are not allowed to enter, and the IDF can only enter under palestinian escort.

In other words, he was run over by a fellow palestinian Arab.

So what we have here is yet another example of Israel haters deliberately taking a photo that shows one thing, and trying to pass it off as evidence of Israeli cruelty.

Surely if Israel was engaged in such vile behavior, they wouldn’t need to invent such evidence.
