PA RADIO blames baby Shalhevet's mother for death

A senior commentator on the official Palestinian radio station "Voice of Palestine" charged on Tuesday that Shalhevet Pass, the ten-month-old baby Jewish girl shot dead by sniper fire in Hebron last week, was actually retarded and was murdered by her mother.

According to a translation provided today by (IMRA), the radio broadcast stated: "On the matter of the baby settler who was killed in Hebron a few days ago, we already said that her death was a fishy action and there is information according to which this baby was retarded and it was her mother who killed her in order to get rid of her."

A spokesman for Israel's Foreign Ministry responded that the statement is "a genuine indicator of just how low the PA is willing to sink to win over world opinion. They use mendacious tactics in their propaganda, but this lie is so arrogant and outrageous as to disgust any normal human being." Education Minister Limor Livnat, during a VOICE OF ISRAEL interview yesterday, said the radio report was "just another example of ongoing incitement and anti-Semitism that has become an integral part of the PA media war against Israel."
