For those who follow me on Blogger,

you may have come here looking for a post titled "Nine minutes and sixteen seconds." I deleted it. It contained link I found on Counterpunch, to a video supposedly taken recently in Gaza. The video was phony. It was from 2005 and had nothing to do with the current conflict. Counterpunch has since taken the link off their site.

It's a shame that misguided people try to help the cause of the Palestinians with such crap. The truth is terrible enough, and when people lie this way, they only give us an excuse to turn away from the truth.

For something closer to the truth than either the bogus video or the coverage in the mainstream U.S. press, go to today's program at Democracy Now!, or read the articles at The Independent.
