[Nettime-bold] Re: <nettime> murder


Phil, et al,

This series of pictures was published (in Holland, at least), about 
two weeks ago in the Volkskrant, and I believe one other news 
daily. It was shot from an apartment overlooking a street where this 
scene took place. From what I recall of the text, the man in the 
picture was taken from a bus when other passengers reported he 
had a bomb. This series is missing the last picture which I saw 
published, in which a bomb-disposal robot is seen picking up the 
dead man's belt. A romantic-styled, photo-parlour image of this 
man taken before his death was also published in last weekend's 
Volkskrant, along with similar photos of other "martyrs". I wish that 
I could provide a link to the Volkskrant pictures, but I cannot right 
now. The text accompanying the pictures on your site (not yours, I 
assume) does seem a bit "inflamatory", and I suspect that the last 
picture in the series was removed to strengthen the impact of the 
rest. Regardless, summary execution is hardly a style of justice 
befitting a civilized, western nation, as Israel would like to make 
itself out to be. The series of images (truncated or not) stands as 
brutal testimony to the kind of desperate, "frontier-justice" being 
handed out to the Palestinians on a daily basis.

Best,
Derek

I received the file located at http://www.philgraham.net/murder.html as a 
word attachment from a colleague on another list. I am waiting to hear 
specifics about its provenance. It contains very graphic, explicit scenes 
of violence, and is disturbing to say the least. With the talk of massacres 
and mass murder in Palestine, I felt I ought to post the page. As to its 
origin, date, place, and so on, I have no details whatsoever but will post 
them as soon as, or indeed if, I can. I will post any news about the page, 
especially if it is found to be inauthentic (which seems unlikely but 
possible).

Best regards,
Phil
