Thankfully this is one story where the lie is stopped in its tracks before it’s spread around the world. Ahmed Mahmoud Khatib followed two Israeli guards before stealing one of their guns, he opened fire with it, before being killed in the return fire.
Staying true to form, both his family and the Imam at his burial began to spread lies to the world’s media, saying that:
“Khatib’s family and associates said over the weekend that he came to Jerusalem for Friday prayers on the Temple Mount and was killed because he had left his identity card at home.”
“The funeral began with a speech by Sheikh Raed Salah, the leader of the Islamic Movement’s northern branch. “Those who murdered Ahmed Khatib are criminals, terrorists and cowards” he said. He also promised that those responsible will be cursed by Ahmed’s blood. “
The video clearly shows that Khatib is alone to blame for his own death. *L* KGS
