Al-Dura Trial: Exclusive Interviews from the Paris Court
  A joint Honestreporting/Take-A-Pen project  - November 14, 2007

Take a Pen's Chairman, Endre MOZES from Paris:

Exclusive: Al-Dura Footage Revealed For the First Time

 “After 7 years finally TV France-2 had to present to the jury the raw footage behind its famous Al-Durrah icon. To everyone’s surprise they presented 18 minutes long materials only instead of 27 minutes they had always talked about – what is rather suspicious in itself.  The main finding from the 18 minutes long movie, which I saw together with the jury, is that there isn’t a single frame which supports in any remote way France 2 Charles Enderlin’s voiceover assessment that Israeli soldiers deliberately killed the boy (or were involved in his death in any way). While I counted many points supporting Philippe Karsenty’s view that the France 2 movie was staged; probably by Talal Abu Rahma, the sole eye-witness Palestinian cameraman.”

 The event’s importance can not be overestimated.  It seems that the Al-Durrah movie proves not the century’s worst brutality by Israel but the century’s biggest and most libelous lie by its adversaries.

British Lecturers Defeat Israel Boycott   May 27, 2005
The UK's Association of University Teachers overturned their previous decision to boycott Haifa and Bar-Ilan universities in Israel in a dramatic two-to-one vote in London on Thursday. The 40,000-member Union voted last month, without debate, without sufficient quorum and so in a way many saw as illegal, to boycott the Israeli academic institutions for what it alleged were actions that undermined Palestinian rights and academic freedom. There has been a wide international protest against the previous anti-Israeli boycott decision being clearly a politicaL step and against free talk. This time the anti-boycott decision followed "a passionate but measured debate," what many delegates praised.

Staged desperation

Watch out for co-liars - this is the way the press cheats us

You’ve probably seen dozens of pictures of Palestinian women crying. The wire services love ’em, decent people sympathize with them.
We all were misled once or more.
Have a look now for a second behind the scenes. Today another revealing photo slipped through the ideological filters, showing the scene as a Palestinian woman performs for a hungry battery of cameramen, staged carefully in front of a picturesque section of the security wall.

By mere co-incidence she chose the English inscription where to cry. One look at the smiling child on the right side makes it clear that this kid well understands the cheating media circus. Is it possible that hundreds of news editors and human right organizations do not?"
