    Richard Landes, one of the conspiracy theorists, asked Tala Abu Rahma for the whole tape with all the raw footage he shot at Netzarim crossing on the day Mohammed was killed. Abu Rahma gave it to him! Landes later came up with the theory that Mohammed was not really killed, because the last image on the footage shows that he was still moving. Landes managed not to see the bloodstained abdominal area. As a medical doctor I know, that people, while they are exsanguinating or go into shock, are still able to move, until they die. There is footage of Mohammed on a hospital trolley in al-Shifa, featured in the German documentary by Esther Shapira. Hospital staff are applying external chest compressions to his lifeless body. That we know it is Mohammed, is because he is wearing the same white and blue striped pullover. Note the blood in the abdominal area.
