Today's dumbest Article...

...appeared in "The Guardian" (last week already, that is):
"Israel is deploying a terrific new tactic against Palestinian civilians in the Gaza Strip by letting loose deafening 'sound bombs' that cause widespread fear, induce miscarriages and traumatise children. (...) The Palestinian health ministry says the sonic booms have led to miscarriages and heart problems. (...) Over the past week, Israeli jets created 28 sonic booms by flying at high speed and low altitude over the Gaza Strip, sometimes as little as an hour apart through the night. During five days in late September, the air force caused 29 sonic booms. (...) The number of miscarriages had increased by 40%, according to Jumaa Saqqa, a surgeon and hospital spokesman."
Wonder whether those anecdotal figures would stand the test of any scientific examination... Make sure to read Honest Reporting's reaction. And keep our recent post in mind.
