I didn't have that one, and it looks very thorough.

Your first link seems to be to an article or response to Dr. Pipes, but for some reason it doesn't work.

I saw that Al Durah video when it first came out.

Even before they did the analyisis I was sure something was wrong with it. If you notice the father ("photo one" on WAT link) when he is supposedly looking at the Israeli position, you see he is perfectly calm, even though that's where the shooting is allegedly coming from. It isn't until he faces the cameraman (who is standing in the midst of a horde of Arabs) that he looks concerned ("photo two" on WAT link), and reportedly screems "don't shoot." It makes no sense for him to shout at his own people not to kill him, unless of course they are the ones fireing.

Also, It was impossible for any Jew to have been in that vicinity and survive, as seen from the arial photo of the Erez junction which shows that if an IDF soldier was anywhere near enough to hear him shout, we would have been reading about that soldier's death, as well.

So, even on the day it happened, I couldn't believe it. But I didn't yet realize the lengths those liars went to fake that stuff, as we see on other occaisions, as well.

Oh, yeah, note that the father is in the safest position, behind that concrete projections. His son is on the outside, much more exposed. Typical, if you know what I mean.

Thanks again for the link.

BTW, do you have this? or this?
