Pallywood Strikes Again

Cross-posted from Jewlicious.com

CNN in their reporting brilliance has the folowing headline “ Israel fires rocket at car in Gaza City“. Its occupants were unharmed. Later it notes that Israel claims 48 rockets launched at Israel just over the weekend.

Thats right, Hamas launches 48 missles and Israel fires one rocket this weekend, and what does the headline read? Furthermore, CNN continues to write that the Gaza Beach incident was caused by an Israeli attack, (along with all other news major news sources) when Israel has retreated from its acceptance of blame. The Palestininas wil not let the IDF get in there to examine the site of the attack. CBC breaks rank and reports that maybe Israel was not to blame.

The videos are extremely suspicious of a new Mohammed al-Dura episode. Its Massacre of Jenin, Muhammed al-Dura, all over again. Video footage is provided by “Ramattan tv” a real Gaza News source.

Watch this over and over again and then tell me that this is for real. The girl weeps over something, then is seen walking away. Meanwhile the “red crescent” guys are walking over to attend to the wounded. It seems they run when given the cue. Then notice that there are two lumps in the sand, one which is moving. If this is a wounded man, why are the rescuers walking?

In the Al Jazeera cut they add in random footage of the boats at sea, when there are no boats at sea in the oher clips. The CNN reporters says that the beach attack was from Israeli gunners—not from Israeli ships— but the Al Jazeera blames it on ships. So was it ships or gunners? Can’t Ramattan get it right?

Why are the “rescuers” clearing the beach of the belongings of the family? Wouldn’t they want to investigate the scene and treat the wounded? There is no hole in the ground of an explosion, where are all the other victims, where is the attrocity? We have all seen what an area looks like after a large explosion…

French Railways must pay Holocaust survivors, they plan appeal

cattle carIn a landmark decision, the French Government and State Railway have been found guilty yesterday of "colluding in the deportation of Jews during the second world war and ordered to pay compensation to the family of two victims." Whil not haveing been guilty of crimes against humanity—a major setback—they were found guilty of the other charges. The French railway company charged the Nazis for the transportation of the Jews in cattle cars, and when France was liberated from the Nazis, they still were trying to collect for the payments.

In their ruling, the judges recognised the prejudice suffered by the victims and their confinement at the camp. They said their transportation amounted to an "act of negligence of the state's responsibilities" because the state could not "obviously" ignore the fact that transportation to Drancy would normally mean subsequent removal to a Nazi death camp. The judges found that the SNCF railway company never voiced "any objection" about transporting such prisoners. The journeys were classified as "third class tariffs" despite prisoners being transported in cattle trucks and SNCF continued to ask for payment of the bills after France was liberated from the Nazis. But the judges did not uphold the plaintiffs' charge that the actions of the French state and SNCF amounted to crimes against humanity.

Oh, and the French Railway say there were forced to do it and they should not be held responsible. Right, Jonah Goldhagen and Christopher Browning with have a field day with that.

The lawyer for the SNCF said yesterday that the company would appeal against the ruling. He said the railway could not be held responsible for the transportation because it had been forced to cooperate with German occupying forces.

Now on to the other companies that profited and collaborated to help the German's destroy Europen Jewish civilization. Tzedek Tzedek Tirdof.
