Wachowski Brothers: Pali-Sympathizers?

Today’s bleat by James Lileks noted something very, very interesting. Note the screenshot from The Animatrix. Remind you of anything? Bueller?
(Hint: Mohammed al-Dura)
Okay, so that’s not a hint, it’s bleedin’ giving away the keys to the story. Sue me.
But here’s the question: was the imagery intentional? Did the Wachowski brothers ask their animators to draw in comparisons to al Dura?
