Proof of Resurrection of the Dead?

As reported earlier, after, literally, crying to the delegation of Arab Foreign Ministers about the "new massacre" at Hula, in which he claimed that "more than 40 people were buried under an IAF destroyed building", Lebanese Prime Minister Seniora admitted that only ONE person died as a result of said attack. Of course, since the reported number of 40 was cried to the world first, the later reprisal and retraction did NOT make as many head-lines. This latest fiction fiasco comes after Israel was lambasted and denounced for the Qana "massacre" in which Seniora and other Lebanese sources claimed that over 50 people had been "slaughtered"; over half of them children, a number that was quoted as fact by every major news service (including our own). Of course, at the very same time that the number was being reported to be climbing OVER 60, the International Red Cross was repeatedly stating that only 28 bodies had been recovered; less than half were children. This also comes at a time where the Lebanese Prime Minister is claiming that there have been over 1,000 deaths and over 2,000 injured, but less than 700 bodies have been uncovered, AND they haven't been separated into non-combatant and Hezbollah, and the IDF has stated that they have killed at least 400 Hezbollah terrorists. How can the international MSM trust Lebanese sources, knowing full well that the numbers have been consistently embellished and actually contrived? Being that they use unsubstantiated sources, completely ignoring the reports of an organization like the Red Cross, it can only be concluded that, at best, poor, shotty, and un-professional journalism is being conducted, or, at worst, the MSM is involved in jouranlistic biased of the highest order and deliberately scewing the facts in order to set a specific agenda and paint a specific picture in favor of one side. After what has been discovered at Reuters over the past 2 days, I'm afraid that the latter option seems like the most logical conclusion.

More resurrection in Lebanon: 39 "victims" come to life

The great miracle of resurrection is at work in Lebanon again. All morning, during the Arab foreign ministers conference that took place in Beirut, the wire services and BBC headlined that the evil Israeli warmongers had killed 40 people. Bad Israelis. From the BBC:

Israeli strike 'kills 40 people'

An Israeli air strike has killed more than 40 people in the southern Lebanese border village of Houla, Lebanon's prime minister has said.

Fouad Siniora told an Arab foreign ministers meeting in Beirut that there had been "a horrific massacre".

Seniora pleaded with the ministers with tears in his eyes to save Lebanon:

'Israeli army has left no bridge standing, bombarded hospitals and UN posts, all for the sake of revenge,'

"Just because we lobbed over 1,500 rockets into Israel, those evil Jews have it in for us," says Seniora. A great country, Lebanon. Surely it is worthy of the sympathy of the media and of all the Arab countries and of the EU. A great man Seniora. Surely he is worthy of the backing of the USA and France, and of all the Arab countries.

It didn't occur to anyone in that assembly, apparently, and certainly not to Seniora, that all he has to do to save Lebanon is to return two captive Israeli soldiers and disarm the Hezbollah terrorists.

A later story revealed what really happened:

One person, not 40, dead in Israel strike: Lebanon
Mon Aug 7, 2006 11:30 AM ET
BEIRUT (Reuters) - Lebanese Prime Minister Fouad Siniora said on Monday that one person had been killed in an Israeli air strike on the southern border village of Houla, rather than 40 as earlier feared.
A resident said about 50 people had been found alive under the rubble.
"The massacre in Houla, it turned out that there was one person killed," Siniora told reporters. "They thought that the whole building smashed on the heads of about 40 people ... thank God they have been saved."

Poor Lebanese, they are not so good at arithmetic. First they said 56 people died in the Qana "massacre." Later it turned out they could only find 28. And now they had another miracle. Anybody could make a mistake between "over 40" and 1. Right?
