Shireen Abu Akleh, whose untimely passing will be a reason that truth is being hidden to protect against the potential shame of whomever was actually responsible for her death. She cannot be properly mourned for the lack of respect that apparently seems to be missing, whether it was caused by unintentional fire; or worse, targeting by incompetent operatives of which ever side actually felt threatened for being exposed and caught in an illegal action that would not present all that well in the media for all the world to see.
It is said there is evidence; a bullet. Hey, they said the same thing when JFK was assasinated, but it was never verified nor validated. Is that why they are hesitant to release it to forensic analysis, because it points to the wrong direction? The greater crime remains to be solved; who failed to protect the safely of non-combatants and what does her death prove? It proves the futiltiy of the 'Palestinian' cause; they will never be able to justify the deaths they are perpetrating since peace is not their ultimate goal. Goading Israel into violence for reasons of attracting global sympathy is a further lost cause since the 'Palestinians' only hurt themselves because the politcal leadership uses the name that has no real politcal history, instead becoming a catch phrase that not even the Iranians honor, given that no love is lost between Persians and Arabs. Therein is the basis of the blood libel, for wherein does the Quran make that distinction?
