CNN might be manipulating the news, but the images are not from
1991--they are current. Within hours of the video making it to
newsdesks around the world, Arafat had ordered the videotapes seized
and the journalists booted out of the territories. Or is Arafat also
lying at CNN's behest, telling the world how sorry he is that some of
his compatriots do not understand what really happened? Perhaps it's
just more Israeli propaganda.
Please DO NOT distribute this crap widely or at all! Some of the
radical left make the Heritage Foundation look like peace activists.

The images of Palestinians celebrating the attacks on the US are not
the reality. They are images from 1991, when Iraq invaded Kuwait.
According to Indymedia Israel, a Brazilian student, Marcio A. V.
Carvalho, from the State University of Campinas found the original
images in the archives compiled by a professor at the University.
The images in question were beamed across the world showing
Palestinians, mostly children celebrating the attacks in the
streets, as they ate candy and make funny faces at the cameras.
This manipulation of information has been widely distributed by
one of the few information agencies which controls news throughout
The professor who has the original images archived, has denounced
this action and has sent e-mails to CNN, to the major television
network of Brazil, "OGlobo", and to newspapers. He has denounced
this as a crime against public opinion who's intent was to create a
generalized environment of adversion toward the Palestinian people.
