Pro-Palestinians: Terrorist just 'waiting for bus'

Int'l campaign to free Ahmad Mansara, who nearly killed 2 Israelis in Oct., conveniently forgets to mention video footage of him with knife.

An international campaign to release Ahmad Mansara, the 13-year-old terrorist who together with his 15-year-old cousin nearly murdered two Israelis in October, has intensified in the past week, according to Walla! News. 

The campaign's organizers, a group of pro-Palestinian activists, claim the boy, who was documented running across a Jerusalem street wielding a knife, was shot by Israeli security forces as he waited for the bus. 

While the campaign is working hardest on social media with the sharing of videos showing Mansara's interrogation by Israeli security officials, the organizers have also led weekly demonstrations in various cities including London, Oslo and Amman under the title."

Although the attack, in which a 13-year-old boy and 25-year-old man were critically injured, was documented by security footage, the activists have tried to portray Mansara as an innocent victim of "Israeli aggression." 

The #FreeAhmadMansara campaign's website claims Mansara "was waiting for the bus, had countless bullet wounds, at least one in his little neck. Settlers, soldiers, and policemen were surrounding him. An Israeli started filming in the background, shouting at Ahmad in Arabic, “die, son of whore… die son of 66 whores.”

"The same Israeli then taunted the child and repeatedly asked the soldiers to shoot him again. The ambulance crews, that were present on scene, refused to take Ahmed to hospital. Since when the Israelis care about our lives?"

Needless to say, Mansara's "story" on the website is filled with untruthful statements proven by both footage of the attack as well as published images of him being fed by nurses in a Jerusalem-area hospital.
