Syria: Father and son sniper victims

A Syrian boy is cut down by a sniper while his father watches helplessly until he is dragged away.

Let's go to the videotape.

In the Arab world, this is being compared to the Mohamed al-Dura case. But that was a case of Pallywood. This one is more likely to be real.
Arab media outlets have been reporting extensively about a video documenting Syrian snipers firing at mourners in the Daraa district in early February. The clip shows a father and son lying helpless on the road. The boy appears to be dead as the shooting around the two continues.

Reports have already compared the video to the case of Palestinian boy Mohammad al-Dura from the 2000 al-Aqsa intifada.

At the end of the video, a man is seen pulling the overwhelmed father to safety. The boy's body is left in the middle of the road as the firing continues.

"This time it's a Syrian boy who was murdered by an enemy as cruel as the Israeli forces," one website said.

A Saudi news anchor could not contain her shock and horror and began crying as she read out the report which again compared the case to that of al-Dura.
But as long as it is just Arabs killing Arabs, no one in the West will care.
