Review of revision 1703099 [Not ready][edit]

Denial etc...[edit]

I have to work soon so I can't do anything right now. This source flat out denies that any journalists were injured: [1]. The IDF website statement goes out of their way to acknowledge the attack but doesn't even mention the injuries, instead they only focus on "terrorists" or "Hamas" and flat out calls that building and occupants Hamas. Israel never acknowledged anyone was injured and made no effort to even care on their website and even went as far as to say the whole thing was their fault. Calling the center a "Hamas comm. Installation" then admitting they knew international media was there is denial of what the building really was. IDF knew what they were targeting before they hit it.

This is not in the article, but screams more denial of the truth: [2] "We obviously knew there were journalists in the building, so we did not attack other floors in the building. But my advice to journalists visiting Gaza is to stay away from any Hamas position, site or post for their own safety." DragonFire1024 (Talk to the Dragon) 10:32, 19 November 2012 (UTC)
Here is the first paragraph of the Israel National News source, as it now reads, with emphasis added:
"No journalists were targeted in the reported aerial attack on a media center in Gaza, an IDF spokeswoman told Arutz Sheva Sunday morning. She initially said that none were injured."
Hence my discomfort. Is that different from how it read when you first looked at it? I've a suspicion —but am uncertain— it may be different from how it read when I started my review. (The review took a while due in part to the distracting nonsense of the Wikinews closure proposal at meta.) --Pi zero (talk) 14:40, 19 November 2012 (UTC)
Is there any way to get a cached version of that report from when she did say that? It would be quite important. So far I do not see a cached version of that article in at least Google. DragonFire1024 (Talk to the Dragon) 19:22, 19 November 2012 (UTC)
