[Nettime-nl] Re: CNN pictures celebrating Palestinians hoaxes?

Dear R,

That I do accept for what it is, and although deeply regretted, it's a different issue.  The question remains: are these old images, and if so, why were they showed?

All the strength, now and later,

 Dear Richard,

I can't answer for CNN, but there were huge celebrations in East-Jerusalem and in the Palestinian territories. The PA also arrested foreign photgraphers trying to cover the celebrations and several others received death threats if they'd publish them. It came to the point this week were the foreign journalists sent a letter of protest to the PA.

 Dear Sirs and Madams,

In search of answers someone mentioned your site. Strangely enough your site doesn't mention the case at al. What is the problem?

There seem to be a persistent hear-say on the internet that the CNN-coverage about the celebrating Palestinians after the september 11th-attack is old footage (!!!) . Those images claimed to be taken in 1991.

If so, the following could be a serious minsunderstanding.

I would appreciate to read your comment in public.

Kind Regards,

Richard Reekers
