Daily Mail: Are aliens here? Shining white 'UFO' spotted over Jerusalem shrine

Commentary: This article by the Daily Mail contains no video or audio analysis of this UFO footage as is usually the case with the mainstream media. Fortunately, the alternative research community has many more budding investigators available to it than the Daily Mail has in order to spend time performing analysis of potential evidence such as this.

One such analysis shows the evidence of fakery in the audio and video track. It is easy to criticise the media for not covering the UFO subject seriously and thoroughly enough. But what mainstream media reporter is going to be able to spend the time de-constructing a case such as this.

Really that's the issue. If they had done an analysis they wouldn't be just "reporters" but it would be like the good old days when we had actual journalists - i.e. an investigator - who spends time determining the facts before reporting on the outcome. These days the news media is saturated with reporters rather than journalists. To quote the lead anchor for the BTN news network in the film V for Vendetta - "It's my job to report the news not make it up... that's the governments job!". 

A shining ball of light has been filmed hovering above a Jerusalem shrine, in footage which UFO enthusiasts say could finally prove aliens exist.

UFO over Jerusalem shrine

The clips show the pulsating orb descend and hover above the Dome of the Rock, an ancient Islamic shrine, before shooting up into the night sky. It then descends again and disappears.

Unusually, the sighting has been filmed from different viewpoints, meaning it has been more difficult to dismiss than most.

The footage was taken in Jerusalem at 1am on Saturday morning and has spread like wildfire on the internet.

It has been viewed by hundreds of thousands of people and prompted fierce debate among UFO enthusiasts and sceptics.

Former Ministry of Defence UFO investigator Nick Pope told The Sun: 'If these are real, they are some of the most incredible videos ever shot.

'If they are not, then this is a very well-planned and co-ordinated hoax designed to eliminate elements of doubt.'

He said the way the object shoots up suggests it is unmanned: 'We know the Israeli army has some very high-tech drones at its disposal.

'If this is one, it is one of the most advanced pieces of technology created by man.'
