Skip to comments.Liberal Blogosphere Duped By 3-Year-Old 'Gaza Bombing Video'
Posted on 01/06/2009 7:46:05 AM PST by rightwingintelligentsia
Just how badly do many liberal bloggers want to depict Israelis as heartless killers and Hamas as poor defenseless victims?
On Sunday, a more than three year old video of an accidental munitions truck explosion at a Palestinian rally in September 2005 was spread around the liberal blogosphere as footage of an Israeli attack on Gaza on January 3, 2009.
Two prominent leftwing websites -- Raw Story and Democratic Underground -- displayed this video for hours before a poster at Reddit exposed the hoax (h/t NBer Blazer).
A gruesome propaganda video uploaded to LiveLeak that purported to show the aftermath of an IDF attack on civilians in Gaza turned out to be a fraudit actually shows the results of an accidental explosion of a truck full of Hamas rockets at a Palestinian rally.
This didnt stop the video from reaching the top spot on reddit.com and gaining more than 2,000 up votes, because reddit.com is absolutely infested with antisemites and terror supporters: GRAPHIC Video of Israel Defense Forces attack on Gaza civilian market originally uploaded on & banned by YouTube (NSFW) : politics.

I haven’t done more on reddit than get an account there because I was tired of digg and their current problems ... (plus, of course, digg’s antisemites and terror supporters.)
Words fail me...
"Not what is, but what ought to be."
I hope Israel doesn’t stop this time and finishes the job, kill the cockroach infestation in Gaza and send Israeli’s back to resettle the area.
last night on NBC News. I'm being serious here.
Doubtful they were duped. More likely they were willing co-conspirators.
Can Green Helmet Guy be far behind?
Kinda funny that the DUmmies and their ilk can’t recognize fraud as they perpetrate it on a daily basis.
The Evil Jews destroyed her bomb magnet.
That’s Saddam’s mom.
Why let facts get in the way of a)some anti-Israel propaganda; b)some pro-terrorist propaganda; c)liberal agenda of any type.
Rush it to press!!!!
Green helmet Guy now wors for Hamas: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2158241/posts
Yet Jews continue to reflexively vote for left-wing politicians in overwhelming numbers.
Go figure ...
I’m not even ready to believe this whole “40 dead at UN school hit by tank fire” yet. Sounds like more Pallywood BS to me.
In their defense, maybe Hamas doesn’t have any good photoshoppers like Hizbulla seems to have.
[Remember all the faked photos from the Hizbulla-Israeli conflict a couple of years ago?]
Someone could photoshop the ‘heineken looter’ guy in the middle of the gaza strip and the lefty web sites would believe it as a current event. They rejoice in bad news.
The funny part is that Hamass, Hizbullduh, etc., always say they welcome death and for that reason alone they will defeat us Western pussies.
They probably had a parade to celebrate the truck blowing up.
