The U.N. Lied, People Died

Remember the hysteria (here and in the world press) last month about the Israeli shelling of the UN school in Gaza that reportedly killed dozens of people within the school?

Turns out the school was never hit by mortar shells after all.

How many thousands of articles were written decrying alleged Israeli actions in the world press? How many TV news accounts were broadcast of the horrors of attacking civilians seeking refuge in a U.N. facility? How many spasms of indignation did this provoke from the regular gang of Arab apologists here at BW?

Well now the U.N. is printing a retraction: UN retracts claim deadly Israeli strike hit Gaza school

The initial hysteria made for great propaganda but the retraction will barely be noticed by the world press.

The propaganda value has clearly been served. That's why it looks "bad."

Hard to believe the hysteria was not deliberately provoked. There is precedence for this. During the Lebanon war the U.N. knew that militants were using nearby facilities to shell Israel but did nothing about it. When the U.N. compound was hit as a resuilt of return fire, the U.N. responded with righteous indigation.

How entriely well scripted and coordinated the Arab militants and their corrupt U.N. accomplices are should be no surprise to anyone anymore.

Should we just kill em all? I am getting tiered of the Arabs, the Israelis, basically the whole lot! How about Israel take care of their own problem? Do we have to always come and play?

UN retracts claim deadly Israeli strike hit Gaza school
Updated at: 2225 PST, Wednesday, February 04, 2009
JERUSALEM: The United Nations has retracted a claim that an Israeli strike which killed more than 40 people in northern Gaza city of Jabaliya last month hit a school run by a UN agency.

"The humanitarian coordinator would like to clarify that the shelling, and all of the fatalities, took place outside rather than inside the school," the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs said in its latest weekly update on the situation in Gaza.

It stressed that its initial report of the January 6 incident correctly stated that Israeli shells hit outside the school run by the UN agency for Palestinian refugees UNRWA, but that it later referred to "the shelling of the UNRWA school in Jabaliya."

The Israeli military initially said its forces had responded to hostile fire from within the UN school but later reportedly retracted that statement.

The attack sparked widespread outrage in the midst of Israel's deadly offensive in Gaza.



The boulevard is apparently a two way thoroughfare.....

You know that this is a spin; I am like Shane right now, fuk'em all. Let them eat shit! I think as Americans we have invested a lot in that region but we have yet to get a yield from the Arabs or the Israelis that could for example help us when we're in deep shit.
Those Saudis better keep oil prices low or we should be calling heads to roll; those bastards have gotten rich on our back for a long time. Enough is enough; they can use their own monies to buy peace with Israel. Israel can also ask them for $$ if they insist that arming themselves to the teeth is for the benefit f that region. I guess that goes without saying.
