In the comment section of yesterday’s post, Tedders left three links that either shed more light on the subject of the Al Durah hoax, or offer you a way to correct history.
Nothing that we do will bring back to life those who were killed as a result of the Al Durah Hoax. The homes that were wreckedÂ and lives that were lost will not become unwrecked and unlost. The families that emigrated to other countries to flee the destruction won’t return.
We may not even be able to bring the perpetrators of this hoax to justice. They may never suffer one day of lost sleep. They may never lose a paycheck or suffer demotion.
But, just maybe, as the revelation of this hoax unfolds, other media figures will learn something. Maybe, when the next hoax is foisted on an unsuspecting audience… Well, maybe someone will ask for a background check.
Maybe the next hoax will have less of a chance of succeeding like this one did. Maybe fewer women and children will lose husbands and fathers. Maybe there will be fewer parents who will have the awful responsibility of overseeing the burial of a son or daughter.
Here are the three links that Tedders posted yesterday:
Thanks Tedders! Keep up the good work.Â
NOTE: If you search for articles on Al Durah, make sure that you also run a search without the last ‘h’, as in: ‘Al Dura’.
