French media complicit in perpetuating 'myth' of Mohammed al-Dura

Some time ago, senior Israpundit writer Joseph Alexander Norland posted an extensive study of the infamous al Dura fraud. But the subject is inexahustible and merits returning to it again and again, with the hope that doing so will help widen the circle of people immunised to the fraudulant reporting omnipresent in and around the Middle East.

"The "martyrdom" death of 12-year-old Palestinian Mohammed al-Dura at the hands of Israeli soldiers - which received widespread international news coverage and spurred on the current Intifada, inspiring countless "suicide bombers" to attack Israel - was actually a "staged" piece of street theater, according to an in-depth report in the current issue of WND's monthly magazine, Whistleblower".

This is a quote from today's Israelinsider which reprints this very report.
