Me, I'm a skeptic. I have long since realised almost everything is a reality TV show and I pretty much don't believe anything unless I can double confirm the report. I read a nice array of news feeds every day - news.com.au, BBC, CNN, Haaretz and Al Qaeda. I figure somewhere in the middle of all of these, the truth must surely lie.
THE death of 12-year-old Palestinian boy Mohammed al-Durra by “gunfire from the direction of the Israeli” forces, as reported by French TV reporter Charles Enderlin, was huge world news eight years ago.
But it now seems that what we saw was not what actually happened. The dramatic footage of the youngster crouched beside his father as “Israeli” bullets whizzed by him, the scenes of his death and his father’s wounding were ghastly but compelling viewing.
