A-Dura trial - HonestReporting and Take A Pen reporting from Paris
08/11/2007

Ce n’est pas rien que l’implication de ces deux poids lourds américains de la réinformation dans l’épreuve de vérité qui va avoir lieu dans les jours à venir. L’essentiel du texte ci-dessous relate le déroulement des événements qui ont mené à la confrontation juridique dont le dénouement approche. Nous n’avons pas jugé utile de le traduire, car vous en connaissez la teneur depuis longtemps. J’ai seulement traduit les 3 dernières phrases, parce qu’elles en valent la peine : "Quels secrets France 2 a-t-elle tenté de protéger en cachant le matériau brut des rushes ? Al-Dura va-t-il devenir le nouveau visage de Pallywood ? Les réponses seront révélées au tribunal français, le 14 novembre. HonestReporting, en association avec Take A Pen, sera à Paris pour rendre compte du résultat. Vous pouvez être parmi les premiers à découvrir ce que contiennent vraiment les rushes de France 2. Tenez-vous prêts, le 14 novembre, pour les dernières nouvelles, directement de l’extérieur du tribunal." (HonestReporting).

AL-DURA TRIAL - HONESTREPORTING AND TAKE A PEN REPORTING FROM PARIS

On Sept. 30, 2000, the world watched with horror as France 2 broadcast footage of Muhammed al-Dura – a 12-year-old Palestinian boy killed in crossfire between IDF soldiers and Palestinian gunmen.

France 2 reporter Charles Enderlin edited the original footage and added a voiceover asserting that Israel killed the child and implied the shooting was deliberate. Enderlin was not present during the events he described, relying only on one witness - Palestinian cameraman Talal Abu Rahma.

As the footage spread across the world, the images – and accusation against Israel – became powerful icon of hate for Palestinians, jihadists, and Israel-haters across the world. Even Osama bin Laden referred to al Dura in a video following the Sept. 11 attacks.

In the original report, France 2 broadcast only 59 seconds of the 27 minutes of footage shot by Rahma. The public has never seen the remaining footage.

In recent years, a growing number of experts – including the IDF itself – have examined the ballistic evidence and determined the IDF soldiers could not have been responsible for the death of the child.

Some experts, most notably media analyst Philippe Karsenty, assert that the footage was a fraud that would be revealed if France 2 showed the remaining raw footage.

But France 2 refused to make this critical evidence available. Instead, they accused Karsenty of libel and prevailed in court – despite a recommendation from the prosecutor to rule in Karsenty’s favor. Karsenty was fined a symbolic one Euro in damages.

FRANCE 2 TO SHOW RAW AL-DURA FOOTAGE IN COURT NOVEMBER 14

However, Karsenty’s appeal has taken a new turn. The judge presiding over the hearing has ruled that France 2 must submit the entire footage to the court by November 14.

What secrets has France 2 been trying to protect by hiding the raw footage? Will al Dura become the new face of Pallywood? The answers will be revealed in a French court on November 14.

HonestReporting, in association with Take A Pen, will be in Paris to report on the outcome of the case. You can be amongst the first to find out what France 2’s footage really shows.

Stand by on Wednesday November 14 for updates direct from outside the courtroom!
