Re: Re: this is in gaza, but...

selective distortion: The process by which people block out information that conflicts with their preconceived ideas about what constitutes reality or modify it until it supports their preconceptions.

what troll typed:
The first clue, is that "palestinian witnesses" said it happened.

what the reuters article stated:
Two missiles fired by Israeli aircraft early Sunday morning hit an armored car belonging to the Reuters news agency, moderately wounding two television cameramen and three bystanders, Palestinian witnesses and hospital officials said.

what troll typed: most likely never happened. … Just like the bogus attack on an abmulance, that "Lebanese witnesses" claimed happened

what the human rights watch report states:
On July 23, at 11:15 p.m., Israeli warplanes struck two clearly marked Red Cross ambulances in the village of Qana. The ambulances, which had Red Cross flags illuminated by a spot light mounted on the ambulance, were transferring three wounded Lebanese civilians from one ambulance to the other when the planes struck. A weapon directly hit one ambulance, and a second attack struck the second ambulance a few minutes later. All six of the Red Cross workers were injured during the attack, and the three patients they were treating suffered additional injuries. One of the patients, a middle-aged man, lost his leg in the ambulance strike, while his elderly mother was partially paralyzed. The third patient, a young boy, received multiple shrapnel wounds to the head.107

Making medical or religious personnel, medical units or medical transports the object of attack is a war crime.

Yeah yeah, Reuters…just a distraction because of the recent kidnapping of two journalists

meanwhile, back in reality:
Report Palestine([search]) properly, freed Gaza([search]) journalists say
www.ekklesia.co.uk/content/news_syndication/article_060827journos.shtml
American journalist Steve Centanni, who was freed today with his colleague, New Zealander Olaf Wiig, has called on Western reporters to continue covering Palestine and the difficult life-issues the Palestinian people face. He was backed by Mr Wiig.

The comments came in a press conference after the two men of were dropped off at a Gaza City beach-front hotel following nearly two weeks of hostage torment. They both do assignments for the Fox News organisation - which has been accused of a systematic pro-Israel bias.



"I hope that this never scares a single journalist away from coming to Gaza to cover the story because the Palestinian people are very beautiful and kind-hearted," Mr Centanni said today. "The world needs to know more about them. Don't be discouraged."

Mr Wiig, whose father is a pastor, also urged journalists not to be put off, saying that "would be a great tragedy for the people of Gaza".
