Here Comes the New Intifada?

Don't believe a word the Israeli right wing press is reporting, they invent news that justifies murder...

The occupational Israeli soldier who shot teenager Muhammad Ziad Awad Salaymah to death.

(SACRAMENTO, CA) - The words to

this powerful song by Sami Yusef seems almost as though they was written around this tragic story of an Israeli border guard shooting to death a 17-year old Palestinian boy on his birthday.

Hmm, a little boy shot in the head
Just another kid sent out to get some bread
Not the first murder nor the last
Again and again a repetition of the past
Since the very first day same story
Young ones, old ones, some glory
How can it be, has the whole world turned blind?
Or is it just ’cause it’s only affecting my kind?!
- Sami Yusef

Nofar Mizrahi, 19 - Israel Hayom

Clashes broke out in Hebron Thursday, ahead of the funeral of the 17-year old Palestinian who was shot last night while walking home from a bakery.

The IDF soldiers say he was carrying what appeared to be a weapon- a classic line almost always uttered by police who shoot innocent victims dead.

If you read the really far-fetched accounts, this youth sent to the bakery on his 17th birthday had a 'toy gun' and he went up to a fully armed Israeli border officer and brandished this 'fake gun' and held it to the head of the officer until the female shown above responded by firing not one, or two, but six shots at the boy, mortally wounding him.

Six shots into a teen boy.

Muhammad Ziad Awad Salaymah... a son and brother, just a kid...

As it turns out, the youth was partly deaf.

Rather than being honest, Israeli government and media just create a different story.

Can you picture a Warsaw ghetto Jew in '40 approaching a Nazi guard with a fake gun? It has the exact same amount of likelihood

Of course it is no surprise that violence erupted in Hebron before the funeral of Muhammad al-Salaymeh, the Palestinian teenager killed by a Border Police officer on Wednesday. He paid the ultimate price for going to the store for his mother on his birthday.

In the ensuing violence, Israeli Army Radio reported that some 50 Palestinians threw stones at an IDF post in the city and the soldiers responded with "dispersal methods".

Ever heard of American 'army radio'. Can you imagine a society where the army runs the media? What possible confidence could even begin to exist under such circumstances? Palestinian news agency Ma'an reported that IDF soldiers fired tear gas directly at Palestinians, injuring five, who were then evacuated to the hospital.

The clashes were not unexpected, but they are part of a growing pattern of resistance toward Israel, recently crippled in the United Nations by an overwhelming vote in favor of Palestinian statehood.

The Israeli Pinocchio squad; aka spin doctors, are piping out all kinds of bull over this one, in reality Israeli occupational soldiers regularly shoot and kill Palestinians.

It is nothing unusual, but this case is particularly blatant, and defined by the fact that the unfortunate youth was hard of hearing and failed to respond to commands called out to him.

The Border Police officer said Thursday that she had acted quickly out of fear for her colleagues' safety, during an interview with Israel Radio.

You know, the gal in the picture beaming like a kid that just got a new toy?

You have to appreciate that these Israelis, some of them, live to kill Palestinian youth, it is how they are raised, and they are absolutely dangerous with their U.S. made weapons.

Israeli right wing media has falsified reports about what took place. What else is new? Perhaps they are disturbed by the death threats against the trigger happy border guard, but it seems as though their media channels - again the right wing or 'mainstream' channels, are literally incapable of writing an honest story. They are not journalists, they are propagandists.
