A refuge that became a place of death"
headlined the Washingon Post concerning the death of civilians in Qana. In the print edition, however we can see that the Post had actually provided evidence of a miraculous resurrection at Qana. Of course, this Qana is not the same as Kfar Qana in Israel, where the New Testament miracle took place, but it is close enough.
A gory photo shows shrouded bodies in the Washington Post. The caption beneath the photo in the printed version of the Washington post reads:"A resident of Qana, in Southern Lebanon, weeps as he shows the bodies of some 57 victims of an Israeli air strike on a building used as a shelter. "
In its coverage of the Lebanon War, Washington Post has adopted the tactics and lanugage of the National Inquirer. Of course, within a few days, Human Rights Watch
had to explain that actually 28 people were killed, and not 56. Nobody said 57 except Washington Post it seems. Maybe they got the number off the ketchup bottle after watching "Manchurian Candidate." HRW explained that the discrepancy was caused by presuming that everyone in the building was killed, whereas apparently many of the people in the building had escaped.
Another explanation emerges from examination of the photo that Washington Post was not ashamed to show on its front page.
Look carefully please at this photo from the front page of the Washington Post.
Here's the whole picture - watch the red arrow:
And here is the image enlarged:
Note that this "corpse" is vigorously returning from his sojourn in the netherworld. It is truly, "The man who could cheat death." Pope Benedict should consider verifying this miracle of Qana. Of course, we know about other instances of "miraculous" resurrection in the Middle East, when for example, "corpses" fell off stretchers in Palestinian atrocity footage in Jenin, and then got up and climbed back on to the stretchers. Perhaps this "corpse" was in a hurry to get to the next "atrocity" to be staged for the benefit of Washington Post and other media photographers, along with the howling ambulance sirens that are orchestrated by Hezbollah and filmed by obliging media. (see CNN Explains how Hezbollah manipulates the News Good corpse actors are hard to find. Or maybe he found he was lying on a rock. Or maybe this is a genuine corpse, which had been brought from another venue and undergone rigor mortis before appearing for its last performance in the Qana massacre media extravaganza staged by the Hezbollah and presented by the Washington Post to their credulous readers. The rigor mortis hypothesis is suggested by Solomonia. It takes quite a number of hours for rigor mortis to set in, especially in a hot climate. In summer, rigor mortis takes about 8 hours to reach the extremities. This is longer than the time period between the supposed bombing of building (after midnight) and the time when it had reportedly collapsed - about 7 AM. Rigor Mortis would in any case have been broken when corpses were extracted from beneath crushing rubble.
Please, Washington Post. If you are going to show ghoulish atrocity propaganda orchestrated by a terror organization, make sure the corpses stay dead.

I hope that the media by now is getting wise to the underhanded ways of the Hezballah people. They will stop at nothing. This enlarged picture is truly funny, should be used for a joke.
