The BBC did nothing to dispel the Palestinian Pallywood propaganda that claimed an Israeli sniper killed an unarmed man despite the huge response to the video and its uptake by mainstream media.
How different the BBC reaction when a small video goes on-line showing a boy firing an RPG on a beach with a few claims that it is a beach in Gaza.
Israeli shells killed four boys on a Gaza beach recently and it cost the Israelis dear in the propaganda war…the BBC know this and want to keep the pressure on the Israelis and so moved rapidly to squash any rumours that Palestinian kids have been using weapons on a beach that might have made people think the Israeli mistake may have been more ‘understandable’ if they’d seen someone firing an RPG on beach.
The fact that in most YouTube videos of this boy and the RPG it is clear that the video is from Libya doesn’t deter the BBC pro-Palestinian machine grinding into gear to ensure the wrong message doesn’t spread….shame about that other faked sniper video they ignored…..
A video of a young boy firing a rocket propelled grenade (RPG) on a beach has shocked many people. But what’s the story behind it?
The young boy looks tiny as he stands on a beach, places an RPG on his shoulder and fires. There’s a huge bang and smoke billows all around. All the while two adults look on and encourage him.
It’s unclear who the boy or the adults are. The video itself has been posted multiple times. Though it’s being widely viewed now, it appears to have been first posted at least as far back as January.
Though some of the postings refer to it as a “Palestinian child firing an RPG on Gaza Beach”, it actually appears to be from Libya. The accents in the video are Libyan, and some have suggested it may have been on a beach in the Sirte area.
Always curious what catches the BBC’s eye…it’s not just out of interest here….there is a definite motive that generated this BBC story.
