Ahmed Shihab-Eldin Tells a Lie

Huffington Post associate editor (and Palestinian advocate) Ahmed Shihab-Eldin has had a rough day, and I'm about to make it rougher. See, he blatantly lied on Twitter earlier today:


Apparently writing "#Fact" after a lie doesn't make it a fact. Unfortunately for Mr. Shihab-Eldin, today B'tselem released a report saying that 41 out of 105 casualties as of Tuesday night are civilians. Of those, 19 are minors. Every civilian killed is one too many, but for those of us who can do basic math, 41 out of 105 is not the majority.

Which makes one wonder where Shihab-Eldin gets his information.
