Countering another blood libel

On Thursday, a 'Palestinian' who attacked an Israeli was shot dead near the Jewish community of Yitzhar. The 'Palestinian' was from a nearby Arab settlement known as Arak Burin. Here's the original story.
Arab media, which reported on the incident throughout the day on Thursday, claimed that the Arab had been shot for no reason by a Jewish resident of Yitzhar. The Palestinian Authority-based Ma’an News Agency claimed that residents of Yitzhar had marched into Arak Burin and opened fire at its residents, killing the 19-year-old, who was identified as Ady Maher Qadous.

The report relied on statements by Ghassan Daghlus, a PA official who is in charge of monitoring activities by Jewish residents of Judea and Samaria. Ma’an also cited “medical sources” who said that Qadous was hit by numerous bullets to the chest and was taken to a hospital in Nablus (Shechem) for treatment, where he died shortly after arrival.

The website of the PA newspaper Al-Quds quoted Qadous’ cousin, who claimed that while he and his cousin were working on property which belongs to them, four Jews approached from a nearby hill when suddenly one of them shot Qadous.

However, a preliminary investigation by Samaria-Judea police found that the Arab was shot after a Jewish man who was walking on a pathway near Yitzhar was attacked by a group of Arabs who threw rocks at him. When one of the attackers approached the Jew with a rock in his hand, he opened fire in self-defense.

Those who responded to the findings by the police largely blamed leftist groups for inciting against Jews and helping to spread the false reports.
One reason the truth came out about this incident was that it was caught on video (think in how many other cases that were not on video, Jews have been falsely accused).

Let's go to the videotape (sorry about the title of the video - it's not the IDF's).

This particular Jew was lucky the entire incident was caught on camera. Many others who defended themselves have not been so lucky.

I wonder if the mainstream media outlets will show this video.
