Thanks to Littlegreenfootballs for pointing out that CAMERA has just published an up to date and fairly comprehensive overview of the debate over whether Mohammend al-Dura’s killing (Mohammed, if he actually existed, was the 12 year old who was or wasn’t shot dead, but whose actual or faked death was captured in a heart-rending video distributed worldwide) was an actual killing or was staged. At this point, there is no question that some fishy things are going on with the reporting. However, if the views of those who think this was staged are correct, this is almost too incredible to believe. I’m positive there are still many people around the world whose negative perception of Israel and the IDF has been directly affected by this story.
Edit: The excellent monthly, The Atlantic, has also covered the Al Dura cover up now.
