Al-Dura, 'fake but accurate'

On September 14, 2004, the New York Times printed a headline that called the fake memos regarding President Bush's service in the Texas National Guard 'fake but accurate.' Apparently the 'Palestinians' have adopted the meme.

Elder of Ziyon cites an editorial in the Arabic edition of Maan, which when auto-translated yields the following:
And I say to you Siimann what business and the results of the investigation? وما شانك اذا كان الطفل الدرة استشهد برصاصة جندي اسرائيلي او رصاصة فلسطينية طائشة؟ What business if the child Durra cited Israeli soldier shot or a stray Palestinian bullet? وهل يمنع ذلك ان استشهاده كان جريمة على الهواء مباشرة هزّت ضمائر العالم وأشعرت الزعماء وجنرالات الاحتلال بالعار؟ Is that prevents him crime was on the air immediately shook the conscience of the world and notified leaders and generals occupation shame? هل يمنع ذلك ان تقول يا سيمان كلمة أسف للطفولة ؟ Is that prevents you say the word unfortunately Siimann's Fund? او ان تدافع عنها؟. Or that defending it? .
For the record, Siimann is Daniel Seamon, the director of the Israeli goverment press office, who earlier this week called the Al-Dura 'murder' staged.

What the editorial is apparently saying is that after seven years of vilifying Israel for 'murdering' the 'martyr' Muhammed al-Dura, it now no longer matters who shot him. The 'murder' - which has been used to incite Arab terrorists around the world - may have been faked, but it is 'accurate' anyway.

And the world is silent.

Here's how that New York Times story from three years ago started out:
The secretary for the squadron commander purported to be the author of now-disputed memorandums questioning President Bush's service in the Texas Air National Guard said Tuesday that she never typed the documents and believed that they are fakes.

But she also said they accurately reflect the thoughts of the commander, Lt. Col. Jerry B. Killian, and other memorandums she typed for him about Mr. Bush.
Anyone else see the similarity between the Arab depiction of the al-Dura murder and the Times' depiction of the Bush memos?
