Thanks to Jonah for flagging this. There is much more here and here and here . Many suspicious details about Qana point to possible Hezbollah staging of entire thing. Banner is suspicious, ditto the time lag between building being hit and collapsing, pictures of dead children were clearly exploited and also do not look — there’s no pleasant way to say this — newly dead. If this were staged by Hezbollah it would not be the first time the Palestinians have faked footage. Just a few weeks ago they circulated a clearly doctored tape throughout the Arab world that purported to show Israeli gunboats firing at a beach in Gaza. The Qana backstory is something all serious journalists should be on.
