Overheard at Table 1: 40 Israeli Babies

In the early days of this war, they said Hamas had cut off the heads of 40 Israeli babies.  The original reporter had said she had "heard it" from some soldiers - but that she had no confirmation, and recanted it.

Because it simply was not true.

But, for a day at least, this horrific story reached around the world and infuriated (unnecessarily) countless people.  The situation is already sufficiently horrific without misinformation adding to the angst, anger, despair, and rage.
