Perhaps because certain people were encouraging her to
do so. The truth is it's hard to know why - but the picture below might help.
It's sometimes suggested that the camera never lies.
If a picture is worth a thousand words, this one from Associated Press demonstrates how a single picture can tell a thousand lies. It was carried on the wire services on 7th February
2004 after another in a long series of Palestinian Arab political
protests next to the security fence, this time in the east Jerusalem
neighborhood of Abu Dis.
We'll be surprised if any newspaper or magazine picks
this particular snapshot up for publication because it gives a too-clear
view of how ordinary people are being manipulated in what they see
and hear about Israel's struggle against Arab terror. If you do see
it printed, please let us know.
Suicide is a weapon that's used more and more in these difficult
times by murderous Moslem terrorists in Iraq, in Afghanistan, in the
United States, in Indonesia. But it's only in the context of Israel's
struggle against Palestinian Arab terror that we hear the press call
this the result of their desperation.
Everything we have learned
about Palestinian Arab terrorists since Malki z"l was murdered tells
us that desperation is the last word you should apply to them.
These people are jubilant, triumphal, ecstatic at the moment of
performing their satanic act of mass murder.
When you next hear about their desperation, think about this
image of an Arab woman crying on demand for the gathered paparazzi. We
and all our neighbors are being cynically manipulated by photo editors,
journalists and reporters in the field with a political agenda.
