    I have to say that the talkbacks on Haaretz are very disturbing. I thought Jpost had a lot of Anti-Israel commenters, but Haaretz is about 100 times worse. As to the Al-Dura incident. It is definitely Israels greatest PR blunder. The evidence is very clear from the videos and testimony by Karesnity and others of the pure Propaganda of the incident. Anyone denying this just needs to read some of the more recent articles about the court battle going on between Karsenity and France 2 in France recently. The court found the lack of clear evidence that Israel was responsible, and awarded Karsenity za symbolic victory over France 2. To the person claiming to have seen the full 45 minutes of video footage, I have to call BS. In the France court Case, Karsenity was able to get the court to demand France 2 provide the complete unedited footage, and surprise, surprise, what they got was a video of approximately 3 minutes in length. Much different than the 45 minutes you claim to have seen.
