Al-Durah - The petition

As I posted earlier this month, Richard Landes has organised a petition to France2 appealing for the release of the complete al-Durah rushes (4382 signatories). He now has back-up from the Israeli army, who have finally asked to see the film themselves.

Landes has also put up a translation of an interview with two French journalists, Denis Jeambar, head of L’Express, and Daniel Leconte. They number among the very few people to have seen the rushes, which were shown to them at the France2 offices with the company brass present. the interview is long, but confirms what Landes has always claimed and defended: that there are, at the very least, a lot of basic questions to be answered about the al-Durah film.

Curiously, the two journalists, who were conducting an investigation into the whole affair at the time, have since then remained silent.
