Look, Listen, Decide for Yourself
On September 30, 2000 France2 circulated dramatic footage to multiple news networks purporting to have captured the killing “on camera” of a young Palestinian boy who “died in his father’s arms.” This footage and the accompanying “lethal narrative” spread worldwide. But a dispassionate and open-minded review of the available evidence calls into question this narrative.
France 2’s 59-second clip of 6 ‘segments’ went to air that day, with the voice-over of France 2’s Israel correspondent who was not present at the scene but whose narrative dictated its lethal message. Below we offer you the evidence and its careful analysis, and invite you to make an judgment on this incident, independent of what the mainstream news media consensus has told you.
To better understand the issues, we recommend you first orient yourself in terms of the layout of Netzarim Junction, and then view the following two tapes in sequence (directly below) and then, if you want, side by side, to see how France2’s Middle East correspondent Charles Enderlin edited and presented the material. Then get to the close analysis.
