Gas vs. Smoke

Contest HAMAS claims about teargas

Tyre fires produce much smoke, which carries toxic chemicals from the breakdown of synthetic rubber compounds while burning. That includes cyanide, carbon monoxide, sulphur dioxide, and products of butadiene and styrene.

The average passenger car tire is estimated to produce over 2 gallons of oil when burned. (Source: Rubber Manufacturers Association, April 2003)

Oil that exudes into ground and surface water as a result of tire fires is a significant environment pollutant. For every million tires consumed by fire, about 55,000 gallons of runoff oil can pollute the environment unless contained and collected. This oily material is also highly flammable.

In other words, Gaza may have created an environmental hazard for its residents for years to come.

Palestine children: Soldiers, criminals or what?

What you should know about Palestinian juvenile offenders

The law, international and domestic, apparently only recognises two groups who may be imprisoned, soldiers and criminals. Is Ahed Tamimi a child soldier? Is she a political prisoner? Is she a juvenile delinquent? Is she Joan of Arc? Continue reading

No fact checking in Ireland?

What concentration camps, Mr.Horgan?

Fault-finders of Edward Horgan‘s ‘Standing up for Palestine’ in this week’s Ireland’s Sunday Independent newspaper (printdigital online) and Irish Examiner’s reader’s blog with slight changes in all three expect to be hit by the standard ‘Criticism of Israel isn’t antisemitism’ cliché.

Well here’s a message. Lies aren’t criticism.
Here’s another message. There are no concentration camps in Israel, Gaza or the Palestinian Authority.

Newspapers employ fact-checkers but nobody bothers when Israel is smeared. Par for the course.

It vastly over-provides for the Muslims (~5%) and virtually ignores Hindus (~2%), Sikhs (~0.75%) and Buddhists (~0.4%).

But what did they say when they covered Hanukkah this year? The festival concluded yesterday – Five Minutes for Israel investigates. Continue reading
