Breaking News: Karsenty Wins in Paris!

Karsenty_4According to Richard Landes:

More details to follow. But word from Paris is that the court dismissed charges against Philippe Karsenty today. Now we get to see how the French (and Western) MSM handle this. It’s a stunning victory for Karsenty and loss for Enderlin and France2 who initiated this case when they didn’t have to.

In order for an appeals court to reverse a decision, they must have strong evidence to the contrary.

The fact that they did indicates that their written decision will be very critical of France2. The implications of this decision are immense. We’ll be following up in the days, weeks and months to come.

In the Emperor’s New Clothes when the boy (Shahaf, Juffa, me, Poller, Karsenty) said the emperor (France2, MSM) is naked, the father turned on his son and tried to hush him. But someone else then says, “Listen to the boy!” That happened today in Paris.

UPDATE May 22: See Jerusalem Post for comprehensive coverage. See also Pajamas Media for by Philippe Karsenty's reaction and further commentary from Richard Landes. And Reuters has taken note of the ruling. Judge Trebucq's written decision is to be released later today.

Now we'll get to see how the MSM handle this? How about by not reporting it? Someone, somewhere needs to devise a proper communications strategy for dealing with stories like this one. HR is excellent as far as it goes but it doesn't go nearly far enough. I once buttonholed an unfortunate Israeli and lectured him about the need to counter anti- Israeli propaganda far more effectively but he said Israel hadn't got the money. Someone must have.

It is now February 2009. There has been no international media followup of this al-dura incident.
Many false "constructed" photos, videos and articles have been reported since.
Do Jews all over the world have any journalist friends or publishers who would publish a LIST of such false accusations starting from even ear;ier so called "massacres" such as the falsely reported King David incident (read M. begin), right through to Shatila and all the others.
here in Melbourne there was an interview of Simon Peres by the well liked Negus but he unfortunately proceeded it by an extremely biased video/film broadcast featuring:

Fatah rouding up Hamas in the West Bank - bu not Hamas arresting and killing Fatah members in Gaza.

Gaza suffering and Hamas viewpoints with an initial but again biased small run about rockets being fired in to Israel territory with incidentally some Israelis shouting to kill them (the Gazans). Not very representative of either side or even inversely representative of their blood thirst!

An intial portreal of "peace" in jerusalem with comments how the various ethincs lived together for years (prior to Israel). he was showing this as in modern jerusalem whlist he was there without pointing out or even realizing himself that this "peace" was due to the israeli presence and controp lf jerusalem. There was fo instance no mention of the wau jerusalem was looked after when controlled by so called moderate Jordan!

Negus then shoed his gross ignorance of how the sotuation realy is with the IDF and Hamas by his queationing of Peres and his obvious disbelief for instance when peres mentioned the IDF telephones to Gazans to leave houses they were targeting.

There were also other incdences th at I can not recall.

ARE THERE NOT ANY JEWS OF FRIENDS WHO CAN PRIVATELY CONVERSE WITH NEGUS TO DO A FOLLOWUP PRESENTATION OF THE WAS PERHAS HE WAS DUPED AND OTHERS - THE WAY INTERNATIONAL MEDIA HAS BEEN AND IS BEING DUPPED BY LIES AND EXAGGERATION SINCE WAY BACK?
AND HOW CAN ONE BRING BACK SOME OF THE LIES AND EXAGGERATIONS NOW TO THE MEDIA AND THE GENERAL PUBLIC ESPECIALLY FOLLOW-ONS AND CURSORY SO CALLED APOLOGIES SO AS TO SHOW THE PUBLIC AT LARGE IN A FORCEFUL WAY, WHAT HAS OCCURRED?
