Posted on 05/20/2013 5:22:18 PM PDT by Eleutheria5
Dr. Yehuda David, who was sued for libel by the father of Muhammad al-Dura and eventually won his case expressed great satisfaction at the issuing of a report by a special report by a government panel that revisited the infamous incident, in which IDF soldiers were accused of killing the 12 year old Arab boy at the start of the second intifada. The committee determined that not only were the allegations and a report by French television purporting to show IDF soldiers shooting and killing the boy a lie, but that the al-Dura is not even dead.
An IDF investigation in October 2000 concluded Israeli soldiers "probably did not shoot the al-Duras." Three senior French journalists who saw the raw footage in 2004 said it was not clear from the footage alone that the boy had died. They noted France 2 had cut the final few seconds of video in which he appeared to lift his hand from his face.
David, a physician at Tel Hashomer hospital near Tel Aviv, entered the al-Dura fray on December 13, 2007 when he told Israel's Channel 10 that he had treated Jamal in 1994 for knife and axe wounds to his arms and legs sustained during an Arab gang attack. David said the scars Jamal claimed as bullet wounds from the 2000 incident were actually scars from a tendon repair operation that David performed in 1994, leading Jamal to sue him for libel. He was initially convicted of a charge, but that decision was overturned by the French Supreme Court in February 2012. The decision was widely seen as a national victory for Israel.

He got better. BTT
Grew up and became Green Helmet Man.
I remember after the vid was shown that “proved” the IDF shot the boy someone did a frame by frame analysis and showed that the way the chips flew the bullets that hit around the two were all coming from the arab side of the shoot-em-up. Were there even any IDF at that particular scene?
Call me lazy, but if I find that out during the investigation, it's going to be a pretty short report.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
Not that the disbelievers will believe it.
Reports are issuing reports now?
LYING SACKS o’ $hit!!
Since there is no such thing as a ‘’palestinian’’, who really cares if any of them are dead?
Besides, it was so long ago.....
What difference does it make, now?!
Yes, but they were in a pillbox I believe and at an impossible angle to have hit the boy. This is only as I remember it. There are sites online that show where the “fight” took place and the firing angles.
