‘Third intifada was launched,’ Palestinian law student posted before fatal attack in Jerusalem

http://mondoweiss.net/2015/10/launched-palestinian-jerusalem

Overnight, one mosque outside Ramallah chose not play the melodic hum of the call to prayer to mark pre-dawn worship. Amid fierce clashes that took place across the West Bank and Jerusalem following two attacks on Israelis, and the killing of the Palestinian assailants and raiding of their homes, the mosque amplified the Palestinian national anthem.

The unrest marks the peak of growing tensions over the Al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem. Intense clashes escalated yesterday and early this morning, on into the afternoon, prompting Palestinians to speculate if we are seeing the beginnings of a “third Intifada,” or uprising.

More than 100 Palestinians were injured in the upheaval, including two journalists.

This morning Israeli police announced a two-day closed military zone in the Muslim quarter of the Old City and limits on prayer at al-Aqsa mosque to men over the age of 50. Women of all ages are permitted to pray.


Let's hope that the Palestinian people do not fall for the rotten bait of the IDF and their paymasters with a confrontation.

Let's hope that the Palestinians stand firm, but do not resort to violence as those do who use zionism as excuse to subjugate a people.

1. Mondoweiss lifted this entire story from The Times of Israel, uncredited

 

Times of Israel published this information on October 3 (the day before Mondoweiss did).

‘The third intifada is here,’ Jerusalem terrorist wrote day before attack

Absolutely zero journalistic ethics on Mondoweiss.

2. The great Ober has spake!

 

Yes, it appears that the Times published their story before Mondoweiss, but besides having a similar headlines you insinuations fall on their face once again.

The Times: ‘The third intifada is here,’ Jerusalem terrorist wrote day before attack

Mondoweiss: ‘Third intifada was launched,’ Palestinian law student posted before fatal attack in Jerusalem

As one can see that both the Times and Mondoweiss have used the attacker's words in parens, but after that your weak sauce argument couldn't even spice up a bowl of flaming jalapeños.

"The times broke the story first!', ober cries, "It's a lift!"

No, ober a lift would be where an article has similarities, beyond the basic story line of 'man bites dog.'

In fact, Mondoweiss goes a little more in-depth than the times so I'll leave that to the passing DUer to read.

Once again you have proved yourself to be a tireless hero of journalistic integrity in order to shut down discussion, IMHO, and to raise doubts where none really exist, except perhaps in your own fevered imaginations.

Don't forget to pick up your anemic excuses on your way out.
