Falk Falsehood

Roni Yihye, killed Feb. 27, 2008, by Palestinian rocket fire

According to a UN news report, Richard Falk, special rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the occupied Palestinian territory, has some unusual observations about rocket fire from the Gaza Strip:

. . . for the year prior to 27 December not a single Israeli death resulted from rockets fired from Gaza, he noted.

Actually, Falk, four Israelis were killed by rockets or mortar from the Gaza Strip during that time.

May 9, 2008 - Jimmy Kadoshim, 48, of Kibbutz Kfar Aza, was killed by mortar fire from the Gaza Strip while tending his garden.

May 12, 2008 - Shuli Katz, 70, of Kibbutz Gevaram, was killed while visiting relatives at Moshav Yesha, some 15 kms (9 miles) from the Gaza Strip.

June 5, 2008 - Amnon Rosenberg, 51, of Kibbutz Nirim was killed and four other employees were wounded when a mortar bomb fired by Palestinian terrorists from the Gaza Strip exploded outside the Nirlat paint factory in Kibbutz Nir-Oz. Hamas claimed responsibility for the attack.

Feb 27, 2008 - Roni Yihye, 47, of Moshav Bitcha in southern Israel, a student at Sapir College, was killed Wednesday afternoon when a Kassam rocket exploded in a parking lot near the Sderot campus. He died shortly after sustaining massive wounds to his chest. Hamas claimed responsibility for the attack.

It looks like he's taking a page out of Diana Buttu's book. "During the period of the Oslo peace process, from the year 1997 until the year 2000, not a single Israeli died of a suicide bombing inside Israel, not a single one," she used to , when in fact, 24 Israeli civilians were killed in six Palestinian suicide bombings in Israel during this time. (See Now she is on air insisting that the Hamas rockets are harmless little things "without any explosive heads."

For this sort of scum, no lie is too big or too outrageous.

but weren't non-Israeli workers killed by rockets also? I seem to recall that. Their lives were ended by arab rockets as well.
