North American media has also promoted everything in the vid and no retractions have ever been made. Does 8 days mean more to you (personally) than the lies that have been in place for 60 years? Are you also an Israeli firster like the (supposed) Canadians that are standing at attention in a photo in your link?

When you can't handle the truth do why even posts like this one eh.

At 18:00 someone from the area describes something your precious article that supports the theme of the cartoon (other than anmybody holding the child's hand. Got any real comments that cover the issue? (or was your last post an example of your best ability in that area) What was one other piece of propaganda promoted by Israel, the newest rocket of Hamas that can reach Jerusalem has the warhead removed so the fear will be increased, bull**** from word one yet it will never be corrected.

"A November 19 Edmonton Journal editorial cartoon by Mathew Hayes claiming that Palestinian terrorists (who he depicted as innocent children, not radical jihadis), fire only spitballs at Israeli “centurians”, was a gross distortion of the truth and whitewashing of Palestinian terror. This year alone, over 1,600 deadly rockets have been fired at Israeli cities from Hamas-held Gaza Strip. Since 2001, more than 12,800 rockets and mortars (that’s an average of 3 attacks every single day),have landed in Israel.
Hamas’ deadly rocket arsenal consists of long-range rockets like the Fajr-5 which has a 90kg payload with a range of 75km putting 3.5 million civilians at threat. Heavily populated Israeli cities like Jerusalem and Tel Aviv are now under daily threat.
Hayes’ poisonous pen only served to mislead Edmonton Journal readers of the real threat that Israelis face from Palestinian rockets."

"CBC National Airs Staged Pallywood Footage The footage of a beige jacketed Palestinian man making a miraculous recovery after appearing to be injured in an Israeli airstrike was broadcast not only on the BBC, and CNN, but also CBC’s flagship program the National on November 14 and SRC (CBC-French). HonestReporting.com exposed this faked injury described as Pallywood (Hollywood-like acting by Palestinians).
Despite our confronting CBC with incontrovertible evidence noting the lack of authenticity of this footage, CBC has not taken any action to tell its viewers that it broadcast fraudulent footage designed to mislead westerners into believing that Israel was laying waste to Gaza. CNN on the other hand did issue an on air statement acknowledging that it broadcast “unverified” footage of supposedly injured Palestinians. Importantly, following our intervention with SRC, a warning label was added to their news report and a statement was issued acknowledging the lack of credibility of this footage . SRC also committed to not use this footage any more."


Want to bet they wouldn't be allowed (by their Israeli masters) to post the real pictures and vids. How set up the fake one, the media or the people, no credit was taken so why put it onto Hamas's shoulders they have more than enough real stuff that could be available but isn't because of Israeli censorship rather than it coming from Hamas.
