Soldiers Sue Jenin Filmmaker

MohammedbakriWorldNetDaily reports that five IDF soldiers filed a lawsuit against Mohammed Bakri (pictured left), who produced "Jenin, Jenin," a video documentary purporting to expose Israeli excesses in the Jenin refugee camp during military operations in April, 2002. WND explains the suit:

The documentary doesn't show footage of the alleged atrocities, but in some scenes, faces of the soldiers now suing Bakri were superimposed over "eyewitness testimony," and it was indicated they had committed "war crimes.”

Spurious massacre charges prompted Canadian reporter Martin Himel to investigate for himself what happened in Jenin. The result was Himel's “Jenin: Massacring the Truth.” If the UN and The Independent could admit there was no massacre, maybe Bakri can too.
