THE JENIN MASSACRE, DEBUNKED AGAIN: "Palestinian sources confirm that at least 34 Palestinian armed terrorists were killed fighting in the battle for the Jenin Refugee Camp. The total number of Palestinian causalities in the battle was 52, a sharp contrast from the claims of Palestinian propaganda professionals who have openly stated that thousands had died."

The truth comes out, though I rather doubt the BBC will give this major play. And this story from The Independent, dated yesterday, still refers to Israeli "atrocities" at Jenin, though the massacre claims have been debunked repeatedly over the past many months.

This blood libel seems a bigger deal than the Niger uranium story to me. But don't expect it to get the same kind of attention. Lies about Jews are okay, you see.
