Subject: Israel targeted civilians, admits lies
"UN Relief and Works Agency spokesman Chris Gunness reported this evening
that the Israeli army is privately briefing diplomats on the fact that its
previous claims about their attack on a UN-run girls’ school in the Gaza
Strip, which caused over 100 civilian casualties, were baseless.

The attack occurred yesterday, when Israeli mortars deliberately fired
three shells at the school, which was filled with hundreds of displaced
civilians at the time, killing at least 46 and wounding 55 others. As
international outrage began to well over the enormous civilian toll of the
attack, Israel declared the killings “according to procedures” and claimed
Hamas had fired rockets from the school’s courtyard, making the attack on
hundreds of innocent civilians self-defense.

Much was made of the claim, including reports that Israel was mulling
filing a formal complaint to the United Nations about Hamas’ use of the
facility. But as the United Nations poked holes in the official story,
Israel is now backing off those claims.

And while Israel had previously claimed to have had proof to back up its
story, Gunness says the military is now conceding that the mortar fire
they previously claimed came from the school came from elsewhere in the
refugee camp. Though Israel is trying to keep its admission of guilt
relatively quiet (far more quiet than its allegations that the killings
were justified) it will doubtless pay a further price in the court of
international public opinion for having once again deliberately targeted a
building full of innocent civilians.

I guess you think that everyone else will let you decide the veracity of
what's reported for them, right?

Do you remember a few weeks ago when you challenged a poster to provide
any evidence that anyone was beheaded in Iraq in the 5 years prior to the
U.S. invasion? I provided 2 links to sites showing that in fact
beheadings HAD occurred during that period. What was your response?

And, anyway, why don't you refute antiwar.com's sources or just shut the
fuck up?

Why don't you post the date, time, and subject so everyone can read it
themselves? Your source's source was the Iraqi Communist Party, the one
that's in bed with the American occupation and living in the "Green Zone".
Hardly a believable reference, nincompoop.

I don't change my screen name every three months like you do. In fact, I

Hey, let's all ignore the message, and shoot the messenger!

(This is where you're supposed to refute the salient points made by the
author. Or not.)
