Last week I noted that an Islamic Jihad terrorist was killed in Gaza in what every Arab newspaper called an Israeli strike, either from a drone or artillery. I cannot find a single report that gives any other possible reason for his death.
The IDF denied any activity in Gaza at the time.
Here we have a clear case of “he said, she said” – Israeli spokespeople versus Gaza’s health ministry spokesman and other Gaza witnesses.
From years of watching the region, I was quite certain that the IDF was telling the truth and the Arabs were lying. Yet there are plenty of people out there who assume that every Israeli statement is a lie and they believe every single Arab claim, despite years of evidence showing the exact opposite.
So who was telling the truth this time?
PCHR publishes a weekly report of supposed Israeli crimes. If they don’t mention something, it didn’t happen.
They don’t mention anything about anyone being killed on January 8.
Aw, who am I kidding?
