From Video Description:
With Israel and Hamas trading rocket strikes it’s time for Hamas to put forth its best actors for eager camera crews. Less than one day into the conflict, the BBC caught footage of such theatric mastery. At the beginning of the video, a man in a beige jacket appears to be horribly injured and needs several people to carry him to safety. He appears again at the 0:38 mark. Except now, he’s completely fine. One thing’s for sure, this guy would make an excellent soccer player. Via Power Line and MrJonsac.
About the above gold medal performance, via Creeping Sharia:
You’ve probably been inundated with propaganda about unqualified and undeserving hijabi’s in the London Olympics while simultaneously covering up terror wrought by Muslims. What you may not have seen in the U.S. media and from NBC, who chose not to air a tribute to victims of the more recent 7/7 Islamic terrorist attack, is this. via Olympics 2012: U.S. gymnast Aly Raisman reveals her gold medal-winning routine was tribute to 1972 Munch Games massacre | Mail Online.
American gymnast Aly Raisman has revealed the music for her gold medal-winning floor routine at the London Olympics was a tribute to the victims of the 1972 Munich Games terror attack.
The 18-year-old said choosing Hava Nagila- a traditional score used for wedding dances and bat mitzvah – was a response to the International Olympic Committee’s failure to mark the 40th anniversary of the tragedy.
And for Aly, from Needham, Massachusetts, she said it made her gold even more special.
‘I can only imagine how painful it must be for the families and close personal friends of the victims,’ she said…..
A pro-Israel blogger tracked down the original photos which show a wider shot of the scene of the street theater performance.
The Blaze Continues:
That blogger linked to an Israeli site Tazpitwhich discussed the photo in June after seeing it posted on the Facebook group called “Freedom Will come to Palestine.” The photo prompted comments condemning Israel including, “Disgusting! Hope the Israelis rot in hell!!” Tazpit wrote:
The soldier in the photo appears to be holding a Kalashnikov AK47 which is not used by the Israeli army, but used often by the Palestinian police forces and terror organizations. The IDF is known for using M16 and M4 weapons, and its uniforms are different from the soldier’s uniform that appears on the photo.
Tazpit quoted an Israeli government spokesman who said:
“Unfortunately, the use of such photos is a known method, trying to harm Israel’s image on the internet and is part of the social networks war of information”.
The use of fake photographs to score PR points in the Arab-Israeli conflict was highlighted after blogger Charles Johnson of Little Green Footballs discovered a Reuters photographer in Lebanon had used Photoshop to digitally alter two pictures during the Israel-Lebanon war of 2006.

From Debka File
A senior Foreign Office official says British government ministers have been told to expect Israeli military action in the wake of the UN watchdog report “as early as Christmas or very early in the new year,” the London Daily Mail reported Thursday, Nov. 10. The ministers were told that Israel would strike Iran’s nuclear sites “sooner rather than later” – with “logistical support” from the US.
According to the British paper, which has good military and intelligence ties in London, President Barack Obama would “have to support the Israelis or risk losing Jewish-American support in the next presidential election.” The bigger concern is that once Iran is nuclear-armed, it will be impossible to stop Saudi Arabia and Turkey from developing their own weapons to even out the balance of nuclear terror in the Middle East.
debkafile’s military sources add that Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan has told Obama more than once this year, “If Iran gets nuclear arms, Turkey will get nuclear arms.”
The Daily Mail goes on to report that in recent weeks, British Ministry of Defense sources confirmed that contingency plans had been drawn up in the event that the UK decided to support military action.
