What kind of mother takes her baby to a conflict zone where rocks and bullets are flying and tear gas chokes the air?
“Palestinian officials said the baby died in an Israeli tear gas attack, a claim disputed by Israeli forces” says the Telegraph.
All most people are going to see is a pretty young mother, flanked by two older female relatives, desperately hugging the shrouded corpse of her baby.
Well it’s theoretically possible, I suppose, that everything the Palestinian propaganda industry is telling us is true: that this young woman called “Mariam” just happened to be innocently wandering past with her eight-month-old Leila al-Ghandour when, lo!, the evil Israelis struck with their wanton tear gas and poor Leila died.
There would be no incentive for sending all these innocents to the death, though, if the Western media weren’t so eager to report Hamas’s propaganda lies as fact.
