I need to start off by saying this is speculative at this point. Also i cant find a high quality of the video myself as most links to the video now
Secondly, if someone can send me a copy or a link to a high quality video so i could look into this further that would be great.
Now to the Point.
The time stamp: The time stamp uses standard Arabic (hindu) numerals like we are used to seeing e.g. 0123456789. However, in the middle east, they use
a different form of numerals.٠.١.٢.٣.٤.٥.٦.٧.٨.٩.
Is it typical for cameras purchased by middle easterners to have timestamps not standard to them?
Below is a picture of a clock tower in Iraq and you can see the numerals on them aren't standard arabic.
Also, from what i can tell it appears that "al-zarquawi" is reading the paper from left to right, but i cant be sure of it until i see a high
quality version of the video. In arabic, they read from Right to left.
If anyone can help to further analyze these points which haven't been addressed yet with the video, we may have more to add to the debate.
