Keeping Them Honest: Gaza Child Killed By Failed Hamas Rocket Reported By CNN As Killed By Israel

Concocted. Negligent. Narrow. This is CNN …

By Robert Spencer – “CNN takes it as a given that young Mahmoud Sadallah (Sadhala) was killed by an Israeli airstrike.

Only one problem: he was killed by a Hamas rocket that fell short in Gaza.

There is a lot of evidence for this. Read the New York Times’ account of his death:

The Abu Wardah family woke up on Friday morning to word that a hudna — Arabic for cease-fire — had been declared during the three-hour visit of the Egyptian prime minister to this embattled territory. So, after two days of huddling indoors to avoid intensifying Israeli air assaults, Abed Abu Wardah, the patriarch, went to the market to buy fruits and vegetables. His 22-year-old son, Aiman, took an empty blue canister to be refilled with cooking gas. The younger children of their neighborhood, Annazla, in this town north of Gaza City went out to the dirt alley to kick a soccer ball.But around 9:45 a.m., family members and neighbors said, an explosion  struck a doorway near the Abu Wardah home, killing Aiman Abu Wardah as he returned from his errand, as well as Mahmoud Sadallah, 4, who lived  next door and had refused his older cousin’s pleas to stay indoors.

It is unclear who was responsible for the strike on Annazla: the damage was nowhere near severe enough to have come from an Israeli F-16,raising the possibility that an errant missile fired by Palestinian militants was responsible for the deaths. What seems clear is that expectations for a pause in the fighting, for at least one family, were tragically misplaced.

The IDF did not launch any airstrikes in Gaza while Egyptian PM Kandil was in Gaza.

The Telegraph: Four-Year Old Child Was Killed By Hamas Rocket, Not Israel – “… there were signs on Saturday that not all the Palestinian casualties have been the result of Israeli air strikes. The highly publicised death of four-year-old Mohammed Sadallah appeared to have been the result of a misfiring home-made rocket, not a bomb dropped by Israel. The child’s death on Friday figured prominently in media coverage after Hisham Kandil, the Egyptian prime minister, was filmed lifting his dead body out of an ambulance. ‘The boy, the martyr, whose blood is still on my hands and clothes, is something that we cannot keep silent about,’ he said, before promising to defend the Palestinian people.” Read more.

    This is all incredible, the amount of mis-information and out and out lies coming out of this. Thanks for the update. I re-posted this, trying to share as much as possible.

    I always hate to see children hurt or killed..it upsets me so. The only thing I can try to think of to feel any better is that at least the little guy went to heaven. Maybe if he was older (whatever the age of accountability is) he would never have known Christ. That is the ONLY thing that even offers SOME comfort. Thank you for sharing the truth that was apparently distorted in the ‘secular’ media.
