A Predilection for Children

Reader comment on item: Strange Logic in the Lebanon War
in response to reader comment: pseudo-civilians

Submitted by Moshe (Israel), Aug 18, 2006 at 03:26

Talking about pseudo-civilians and human shields, most striking is the cynical use of "children sacrifices" by the Hezbollah, as well as by the rest of the Arab terrorists, for promoting their "blood libel" propaganda campaigns against Israel. When the recent war in Lebanon erupted, following a most outrageous Hezbollah provocation, I had no doubt that it will be brought to its abrupt end as soon as the terrorists will decide that they had enough, and will stage another "intolerable crime against innocent civilians" with as many as possible dead children bodies in front of the TV cameras. This is a routine tactic of the Islamist propaganda machinery to ruthlessly blackmail "reputed" international news agencies into serving as its agents under the disguise of bringing "unbiased" news reporting.

There are countless examples of forging, fabricating "news", and release of fake video clips with staged "events", by the Arab propaganda, many of them having been mentioned in the present article. One of the most striking "masterpieces" of this uninhibited propaganda industry is the notorious case of the sacrificing of the young boy Muhamad Al-Dura by the Palestinian murder & lie machinery 6 years ago, at the onset of their latest round of violence. Its details are brought in "Who really killed Muhamad Al-Dura?" at http://www.israel-wat.com/kid_eng.htm. In many other pictures you can see some of these armed "freedom fighters" headed to one of their murderous missions, holding the hand of an unsuspecting boy or girl, to have them around for "just in case".

Obviously these guys really love children!
