RE: Palestine Today
※→ P F Tinmore, et al,
I understand that everyone likes to have a hero (or in this case a heroine).
I watched the two recent videos posted by our esteemed friend (P F Tinmore); Posting #5291 The Paramedic (Razan al-Najjar) and Posting # 5292 The Juvenile Delinquent (Ahed Tamimi). In both cases, the video is focuses on the "helpless" female angle being unnecessarily physical attacked by an overwhelming force.
• They are both organized along the strategy of the "Appeal to Emotion (also known as: argument by vehemence, playing on emotions, emotional appeal, for the children)."
■ The Paramedic was allegedly shot in the chest by an unknown Israeli sniper.
■ The Juvenile Delinquent allegedly "slapped" an Israeli "soldier" which invaded her home without a warrant."
The Paramedic was allegedly shot approximately 25m from the Boundary Barrier while treating another Palestinian. Witnesses say she was clearing a "Medical Uniform." Clearly, the implication of the story going around is that the Israelis were in violation of Rule #25 Customary IHL. (Medical personnel exclusively assigned to medical duties must be respected and protected in all circumstances. They lose their protection if they commit, outside their humanitarian function, acts harmful to the enemy.) We all know that HAMAS has been known to use Medical Uniforms, Medical Facilities, and Medical Vehicles to accomplish their hostile missions. The Case to be made here is not about what they were wearing or what they claim they were doing, BUT what it might have appeared to be by the Israelis patroling the border.
In the case of the Juenile Delinquent, it was clear that the incident occurred on the road between Tamimi and a Police Patrol. It was not in the residence, it was not a confrontation with the IDF, and it was not spontanious. It was clearly a NOT a case a non-violent protest.
Videos like the ones posted by P F Tinmore are videos that attempt to raise sympathetic support to civil disorder and "to influence public opinion in the area in a manner that could well disturb public safety or public order.”
This guy is full of crap. Those people are not terrorists in Palestine.
I'll borrow your preferred style of argumentation.
Can you prove they're not?
