UN Verifies That Hamas Rocket Killed Gaza Child Whose Death Was Blamed on Israel

March 8, 2013 2:04 pm 16 comments

Jihad Masharawi tragically lost his infant child during the Hamas-Israel conflict.

The UN Human Rights Council released an advanced version of its report on Israel’s November conflict with Gaza terrorists this week. The report is unusually fair to Israel, and disputes several claims made by Western media against Israel during Operation Pillar of Defense. Most significantly the report says that in all likelihood the 11-month-old child of a BBC employee Jihad Misharawi was killed during Operation Pillar of Defense by Hamas rocket fire rather than by Israel, the side initially blamed in reports by the BBC and several other media outlets covering the conflict.

The UNHRC report says:

“On 14 November, a woman, her 11-month-old infant, and an 18-year-old adult in Al-Zaitoun were killed by what appeared to be a Palestinian rocket that fell short of Israel.69

The footnote (69) says the case was monitored by the UN OHCHR, meaning that the UN itself investigated this case and believes that the attack came from a Hamas rocket.

A picture of the mourning father holding his recently deceased son became a symbol of Israel’s campaign in Gaza. His father was working as a stringer there and at the boy’s funeral blamed his son’s death on “the Jews.”

    The best one yet. “It is the Jews and Israel’s fault the Palestinian men beat their wives. Of course, who else would they blame.

    Well a litter late but the media is not certainly given much not about!
    Exception confirms the rule, UN is control by many black mail nation, by oil reach Muslim nation for a long time.
    The media wars by Islamic or Palestinians is very effective against the Jewish nation.

  • Is the world stopping to turn upside-down? Or it’s simply a miracle that UN recognize Hamas culpability? Either way, good sign!

  • My heart will always for the Israelites, you the beloved of the LORD, hope the church can see that.
    When nations reject God and body of Christ loves you.

  • We can depend on Washington Post to grease the Palestinian propaganda machine. The propaganda machine that was built by Hitler himself and Al-Husseini, the leader of the arabs living in Jerusalem during the 1930′s. Yes, Nazi flags once flew in Jerusalem, Arabs served in the Nazi army, and Fatah was created by veterans of Husseini’s Arab higher committee. PA’s esteemed leader Yasser Arafat was a nephew of Husseini. Arafat learned to be a butcher from the NAZI BUTCHERS. The ideology of genocide and death with these Arab jihadis runs so deep, we are dealing with socio-paths. The Muslim Brotherhood wants to distance themselves from these PA Jihadis because they threaten to BLOW their cover and unmask their elegant genocidal ideology and their big social engineering machine in the U.S. This is about world domination of the kind only Hitler dreamed of and part of the domination consists of U.S. media outlets like the post that don’t check their sources and take their information from sociopaths. MMMm media never tasted sooo good.

    Simply stated, it is refreshing to hear the truth. About time and hope that this display of honesty continues.

  • Tony Jacobs

    This will be yet another story untold by the media.

  • trianglewhip

    They’ll blame the Jews on just about ANYTHING that goes wrong in their lives..

  • The mainstream news media that eagerly reported the original attribution of death caused by “the Jews” will not pick up the correction and the original impression will be left indelible on the minds of the public, themselves not interested in having their original impression overturned.

    • The way around the “unprinted” truth, is to spread the truth to every single subcription, facebook, twitter and u-tube sites, on every blog and article – spread the truth around, so the world will hear and maybe just listen…..

  • Jo-Ann Morris

    This proves once again that PA cannot be trusted or believed. And the sad thing is the majority of the world does believe them…question what yo read before making a judgement on Israel.

  • Michael London

    BBC is getting less-reliable with its facts. Who can believe
    their reporting?

  • Great. The UN gets it right while no one is listening.

  • Another Mohammed Al-Dura hoax.

  • Lawrence Kulak

    I have one simple question: Had it been shown that the explosion which killed this child came from an Israeli missile, would that mean that Hamas is not responsible for killing this child? They are provoking a war with no army in the midst of civilian territory and then using the Arabs as human shields. So the world should finally say to hell with all of these investigations, lets save our money, and who the hell cares which explosion was technically responsible for the death. We know who is responsible.

    JNS.org – Low enlistment rates in the Israel Defense Forces (IDF). High rates of poverty. Communal resistance to traditional schooling. Difficulty finding employment or a lack of motivation to be employed. These conditions are shared by two sectors of the Israeli population that the casual observer likely wouldn’t group together: haredi Jews and Bedouin. Through its operation of schools for each population, however, the Israel Sci-Tech Schools Network seeks to give haredim and Bedouin a brighter future in the Jewish [...]

    In his new play Mr. Goldberg Goes to Tel Aviv, playwright Oren Safdie tackles an issue that he has a major concern with: the relationship between Israelis and left-leaning Diaspora Jews with their “I know better” critical views. At the heart of the one-act play is Tony, a Jewish and gay Palestinian sympathizer who expresses strong anti-Israel sentiments when the play begins and at one point even sides with a Palestinian terrorist who holds his captive. Tony, who is also an [...]

    JNS.org – The 75th anniversary of the premiere of “Gone with the Wind” on Dec. 15 presents an opportunity to examine the Jewish influence on one of the most popular films of all time. That influence starts with the American Civil War epic’s famed producer, David O. Selznick. Adjusted for inflation, “Gone with the Wind” remains the highest-grossing movie ever made. It earned the 1939 Academy Award for Best Picture, the same honor another Selznick film, “Rebecca,” garnered in 1940. Selznick [...]

    JNS.org – It was an era of steel strings, guitar heroes, and storytellers—high on heroin, rebellious. Outlaw country music, the hallmark of Nashville’s powerful and angry music scene of the 1970s, was the brew of greats such as Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, and Townes Van Zandt. But there is another, little-known music hero of that era: Daniel Antopolsky. A Jewish lad from Augusta, Ga.—the son of immigrants who settled in the south and ran a hardware store on Main Street—the [...]
