Before my Twitter ban, I tweeted:

One side: "Let's look at the evidence, transparently, with all parties, and find the truth."


Why is there even a question here of which side to support?

Despite all the accusations by the PA, B'Tselem, Ken Roth and others that Israel cannot possibly hold an objective and honest investigation, as of this time the IDF investigators say that there is a possibility that Shireen Abu Akleh was killed by a shot that was aimed at a terrorist jeep that was near her.

The military’s investigation into the death of Al Jazeera journalist Shireen Abu Akleh has been narrowed to focus on one particular exchange of gunfire between IDF troops and Palestinian gunmen on Wednesday in Jenin, according to a report Thursday.

This particular incident in question “took place about 150 meters from where the journalist who was hit by gunfire and killed was positioned. The incident took place at the time [that she was hit],” Channel 12 news reported.
The IDF says that one soldier fired several shots  through a slit in the armored vehicle at a group of terrorists in a jeep, andit was in the direction of Abu Akleh who was behind the terrorists. 

It says the other possibility is that there was massive firing from Palestinian positions towards the north where Abu Akleh was. "As part of the attempt to hit the military force, massive Palestinian gunfire was fired, in which hundreds of bullets were fired from several targets" towards where Abu Aklen was.

Given that there were several shots around Abu Akleh, including the tree and her coworker, it seems unlikely that all the IDF bullets missed and hit near her, but the IDF says it is one of two possibilities. 

It is asking the US for help in getting the PA to hand over the bullet and/or her helmet, from which it can determine whether it was one of their bullets. 

So far, the PA has refused.


It is quite obvious that only one side is interested in the truth, and the other only wants propaganda. Which is the entire conflict in a nutshell.

But the larger question is why do so many people immediately assume that Israel is covering things up when it is blatantly clear that the only side with no interest the truth is the Palestinian side? 

It seems to be human nature that people prefer to listen to the clear-cut, black and white narrative instead of the honest truth. But that especially applies when there is a pre-existing bias towards one side.

The answer is the same answer it has been for thousands of years. Jews are assumed, ab initio, of being liars and cheats. That age-old stereotype is what is behind the libels of today, and it is part of the reason that so many people swallow a clear-cut narrative over the ambiguous truth.
