And here are some other websites articles covering the same issue and revealing more tidbits of info....

Above article is mirrored here....

And the original video is mirrored here and is also covered again by Al Jazeera’s Emma Hayward in a 2nd video!....

Personal Disclosure: YAY! Go the internet!
Its like the hotel california...onces its up there it can never leave!

I'm not going to get offended by someone speaking their mind
Omegalogos did some excellent research here. Take a look at the links.

I agree the footage isn't the best, but You can see what's going on; rifle pointed, soldier hesitates, recoil, and flash of the muzzle.

I would at least like to see this seriously addressed in the MSM.

Oh, always speak up, and don't be afraid to affend. It's Your right!

Two important issues here.

1) It was deleted from youtube, which is most telling.

2) Blatant disregard for human life.

Israeli government you make me sick, period.

'Nuff said.

That's it. I'm flying to isreal to find that man and cut him with my knife.

Guys, do not criticize the video or israeli soldier's action shown in it.
That would be so racist and anti-semitic, right?

You're right.

I'm sorry IDF, and to the Zionist government, please don't hunt me down, tie me up, blind-fold me, then shoot me.

And they wonder why they have to build walls and fences to keep these people away!

If that was my brother or even friend, I'd still want to rip the teeth out of every IDF devil.

So what's the deal with these lying Israelis ?

They're game to shoot someone in front of Palestinians .. because they don't give a damn what Palestinians say ... and because they figure NO one will believe Palestinian witnessess and victims ONCE the lol 'israeli authorities' are finished defaming and discrediting them ?

BUT .. they don't want the WORLD seeing what goes on because it's a lot harder for israel to threaten and discredit the entire world ?

SO .. in order the world will NOT see the indisputable evidence

they BAN that evidence

they COVER UP and lie about the evidence

Here you go israel .. deal with this: you've been shown to be blatant liars and to have REMOVED evidence that blows-away your lies

so from now ON --- I will not believe a damn word that comes out of israel's lying mouth. End of, israel. Don't lie to me again

Couldn't have said it better my friend

Glad we find a subject we can agree on!

"Just carrying out orders" was this soldiers excuse.

How many soldiers "just carry out orders" everyday around the world? How many prisoners are tortured by soldiers "just carrying out orders"?

Soldiers such as these are just mindless puppets, if you ask me.

I don't know how the Israeli army operates, but American soldiers have the right to refuse an order such as this. But, would they? I really doubt that most would. Because they're trained to "carry out orders".

I'd like to think that if there were ever Martial Law declared and the government starting locking up civilians, that some soldiers would deny orders so that they could uphold the oath that they're sworn to ... but I really doubt they would. They'd just "carry out orders" like a good soldier is trained to do, then hide behind the order, like a coward ... as this soldier did.

So what? This isn't new. Israeli soldiers have always done hideous acts such as this one.

Israel consists of hypocrisy. Jews who carry on how they were so mistreated but yet are the same people who commit mass murder against their neighbors.

Thought this sounded familiar. I remember seeing this video months ago, unless I am having an incredibly vivid case of Deja vu?

I'll have to dig around a bit when I get a moment but I am sure this is the same video I remember.

It's hardly surprising that the censorship folks jumped on it so quickly, which seems par for the course these days and should serve a reminder to everyone about just how powerful the state of Israel really is. Not only are they strong militarily (mostly against lightly armed opponents or unarmed women and children), they also have a well embedded corps of "helpers" in most countries, ready to do what is necessary or ordered to protect the reputation of Israel.... or maybe it's even worse than that?

Up to their eyeballs in political corruption, both at home and in our countries too, they have a lot of control over what WE are allowed to read, view and discuss openly in the counties of our birth where, apparently, we have such things as freedom of speech! Yep, freedom to say what we like, as long as it's not critical of Israel and it's barbaric actions.

read all the post's. Imagine if We all cross posted atrocities like this across the web, then no military in the World would be able to get away with it.

You can see the look on the that young soldiers face almost; his body language is the most telling. I'm sure he was just stupidly following whatever atrocity he was told, but imagine now with the Internet, We can all teach military, or People involved in war that their actions are accountable, and justice will be served at some point. Just a matter of time

It's grown up business,

the subconscious need to project the penis into other people's affairs.

I find it odd that in the moment of the shot the camera moves away from the "victim".

Thank you for bringing this to our attention, I could have gone my whole life without watching this.

Something that people here need to understand is that this isn't one sided. This thing happens to both Israelis and Palestinians. I can't even imagine the repercussions of this video. Its funny, us humans want vengeance and violence after seeing this sort of thing. Its only till the vengeance reaches back to someone you know, that you want to solve things out peacefully.

This video might not have reached headlines but it gained some attention. But when it gains attention, there are many feelings running around. Some for sympathy, sadness, anger and most likely someone out there of joy. These feelings can help a difference, whether in a positive way or negative.

This was allegedly filmed by a little girl on her cell phone cam. I guess when she heard the shot she ducked. I would have done the same thing.

I think the People with the camera were shocked; I don't think I would have expected something like that to have occurred.

Omegalogos provided some excellent links to this story; it has apparently progressed, and has been authenticated.

Thank You.

The entire World should be about truth, and dignity. Bringing things like this to light may indeed help righteousness come forth.

Disclaimer: As elsewhere!

Explanation: Ok I got about 1hr left to start posting my drafts.

Since yesterday I have put in quite a bit of effort and this is what I've got so far [Phages "get your facts 1st" signature is BOOMING in my skull!]

The incident in question happened over a year ago on July 7 2008 in the West Bank village of Nil'in. It took just under 2wks for the video to reach B'Tsalem who then posted it on their website [ORIGINAL SOURCE] on the 20th July 2008.

The video was mirrored the same day on the alongside Emma Hayward's Al-Jezzera video report.

The story was then mirrored on on the 21st July 2008 [
MSM outlet! page includes link to video!] and on on the 22nd July 2008. [seems to me mike was a bit late...1 yr late! And ABC may now own the rights to the vid as its on their website! I'll ask them OK!

Then the Palestinian Front for the Liberation of Plalestine website posted a story on or after August 8th 2008 [No date for articles posting! Note even when veiwing the source!
] where the victim [Ashraf Abu Rahma] was honoured and the story retold.

OK thats all the links I previously provided in chronological order!

Now before I press on with more info I have come up with I need to seriously debunk the youtube incident in regards to the other video being used as an example! [RE: Neda's death] Its been removed and reposted and removed and reposted multiple times. The current Neda video on youtube was posted less than 2mths ago and I'm sure it will be pulled down if it gets flagged! Seems St Vaast's idea has sorta worked for that vid in this case! Anyway I'll ping youtube on this incongruency when I contact them OK!

Moving on I found out the name of the soldier who fired the shot and I investigated the ramifications that happened to him and his superior officer.

The Names of the Perpetrators.....

Lieutenant-Colonel Omri Bruberg and Staff-Sargebt L [Source]

Note that the name of the officer involved was misreported!

Personal Disclosure: OMG! its lunchtime! I hope the berrating has started. Geez I'm soooo slack! If I have anything wrong so far please deny my ignorace ASAP OK!

P.S. More to come and SOON!

Er, I do not know the full story, but WRH, aka mike had posted this video long ago. I do think he was one of the original People to air it. He had asked for People to spread the video, but it was along the lines of re spread. I remember seeing it along time ago on his other words he had it directly uploaded to his site. as in a wrh video, but that's all I know.

Dsiclaimer: As elsewhere!

Explanation: I just checked out mikes website WRH and unfortunately for him he was months too late as the 1st time he posted about this was on the 6th of October 2008! [WRH Source] This was well after ABC posted it and as I said above that they may have purchased rights to the video and that might just kybosh his no copyright claims!

Personal Disclosure: It seems that the perpetrators were punished but very punitively!
I'm still going to write to the Israeli embassy and ask them their position on warcrimes and warcriminals and I'll wait for their response before trapping them in their own hypocricy!
