The other day DPF posted about Pallywood, the home-made propaganda clips Palestinians release to the media whenever the Israeli govt decides to use them for target practice. Right-wingers keep a close eye on propaganda released by these uppity wogs who object to being killed in their homes, so the amateur efforts are usually easily spotted.
In the comments, Luc Hansen pointed readers to a different video, and for me this video highlighted one of the reasons Palestinians make fake propaganda videos for the western media (the other reasons being things like not have a govt, military and compliant media to do a professional propaganda job). That video is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=ytoMxhYNkxA&noredirect=1. I suggest that if a roasted toddler struggling through its last breaths isn't the kind of thing you feel up to viewing, don't view it.
The point is, this is what the real video looks like. If you get regular military forces to attack a densely populated urban area with heavy weapons, roasted toddlers struggling through their last breaths is the entirely foreseeable outcome. The thing is, western media won't put those videos on the news. What they will show is suitably dramatic footage of an unharmed-looking person being carried away "wounded," so that's what the locals give them - providing them with footage of horribly injured children would be pointless.
