The Staging of Qana

A few things journalists might want to check out, re: Qana.

1. The men parading around with dead children dressed as “rescue workers” are the same man, photographed again and again. He’s the main actor.

2. The same man was caught in similar photos in 1996 parading around with a dead child, which means that he is a professional dead-child parader, a very prestigious job that has been created by terrorists concerned about CNN’s ratings.

3. A Lebanese blog says that Hezbollah filled the house in Qana with crippled children who couldn’t run away. It then placed a rocket launcher above them, and waited.

4. Another possibility—the bodies may be the same ones paraded around in Tyre a few days before for the benefit of CNN.

5. If these things don’t sound possible to you, that no one could be that callous or horrible, then let me remind you of Beslan, where hundreds of children were held hostage on the first day of school, the little girls raped, and then the building exploded. Might I remind you of the terrorist massacre of Israeli children in Maalot. Might I remind you of the flying of several passenger planes filled with women and children into skyscrapers. Terrorists are not nice people. Other questions: How did that building alone have so many people when other buildings had none? And why so many children? And why not a single man? And why, davka, the building in which they stored the rocket launchers? Why would people have chosen to huddle there against the bombs instead of somewhere else unless they were forced to?

And what about the gap of eight hours between the bombing and the explosion?

Inquiring minds want to know. Isn’t that what journalists used to do, dig beneath the obvious to get the truth instead of guzzling down and regurgitating staged propaganda like so much draft beer in a cheap bar? And another question, if the death of children is being staged for the benefit of CNN, then isn’t CNN responsible for their deaths?
