IDF releases tape showing fake Palestinian funeral
By Amos Harel, Ha'aretz Correspondent
The IDF released a videotape Thursday showing the apparently staged funeral of a Palestinian in the Jenin refugee camp. The footage was filmed by an IDF unmanned reconnaissance plane on April 28.
IDF field intelligence chief, Colonel Miri Eisen, told reporters that the film shows someone who is supposedly dead - and on the way to burial - falling off his stretcher and then running away.
According to Eisen, the funeral was "one big show," whose aim was to dupe the United Nations fact-finding team into believing that the events in the camp were worse than they were in reality.
She said that the mock funeral was part of Palestinian preparations for the committee's arrival and that the Palestinians had fabricated evidence.
The Palestinians rejected the Israeli claims, saying that the footage showed wanted Palestinians fleeing.

IT'S A MIRACLE!
So, does this mean he has to pay the Saudis back the 25K?

Throughout the Jenin refugee camp the plaintive cry could be heard, "Bring out your dead! Bring out your dead!"

Its a miracle!
I saw that tape. The dead guy was wrapped in a blanket of some sort being carried on a liter when they accidently dropped him. Obviously alive, he lay down and they wrapped him up again. They were about to proceed when something scared them and they ran away. There is no question but that they were faking his funeral.

Thanks for the pix.
What was that race of space beings on Star Trek: The next Generation, that was the most untrustworthy, duplicitous, lying low-lifes in the universe? I Think they were called the Farengi (sp?).
Anyway, I nominate the palis to take their place.

Thank you for the pictures.
I posted them on another politics/current events website and I am waiting for the excuses from the left.
