22-Jun-12: Killing little children, then turning them into martyrs and blaming it on other people
Though most of the mainstream media reported the death as caused by Israel or at minimum that there were credible claims that it was all Israel's fault, there's a new and authoritative version. A UN agency has come forward (hat tip Challah Hu Akbar) to confirm the Israeli version of the facts.
The little girl was yet another innocent victim of the Palestinian Arab rocket men, and she was not the only child to suffer in this particular incident. Click here to see how the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs in "Occupied Palestinian Territory" reports on "two incidents on 18 and 19 June [in which] an 18-month-old Palestinian baby was killed and four other children (aged between 3 and 12) were injured when Palestinian rockets fell short inside Gaza and hit two houses in the Beit Hanoun and Az Zeitoun areas"
Tragically but consistent with their outlook on life - and on death - the Paltimes website published grotesque photographs of the "martyred" toddler, Hadeel al-Haddad. We won't reproduce them here.
