Media Ignore IDF Denial

Israel has received widespread condemnation for purportedly causing the death of a United Nations aid worker. However, the Jerusalem Post ("IDF: Army didn't fire on UN truck driver," Jan. 10, 2009, by Amir Mizroch) reports that the IDF has determined that it was not Israel that fired on the U.N. truck. Moreover, the IDF points out that the U.N. sources relied upon by the foreign press later admitted that they did not know in which direction the truck was headed when it was hit, and were not certain that tank shells were responsible.

In other words, it appears that it was Hamas terrorists who were most likely responsible for the deadly attack on the U.N. aid worker, not Israeli soldiers.

The IDF further notes that the wounded Palestinians were evacuated to Israel and were treated at Ashkelon's Barzilai Hospital. Ashkelon, it bears noting, is one of the cities that has been under attack from Hamas rocket barrages.

The media, which rushed to immediately condemn Israel for the attack, have subsequently ignored this information exonerating Israel and implicating Hamas instead. Please bring this to the immediate attention of reporters and editors so that this does not become a repeat of the infamous al-Dura blood libel.

" For Triumph of Evil It is necessary that concerned people around world and on the Globe say nothing and accept the the highly questionable statements by the powerful and access to influnce"

That is what is happening in and around Gaza and LOC {[Line of Control] [line of conflict]} between the divided people of Kashmir.
The occu[ied, oppressed, and tormented people on this Globe are going become human bombs to express their pain, anquish, and displeasre. It is time Israel, India, and rest of the world realize this fact of life on his perilous Globe that these tormented and traumatized people can be easily exploited and angered to act like evil people. In summary State sponsored terrorism breeds terrorists as we label them.
