Is this thread just for current instances of photo and video manipulation or can we look at some of the classics?

I mean, who could forget when Palestinian legislators tried to gain sympathy by appearing as if they had to do their work in the dark due to a blackout... when daylight was clearly showing through the curtains.

This might also be a good opportunity to discuss Arab cultural attitudes to lying and their failure to build high trust societies.

Let's see what our fellow contributors have to say but - personally - I'm all in favour of the classics.

It'll be fascinating to see how the "genre" evolved over time. :cool::D

Readers may or may not be familiar with the term "Pallywood". It's a portmanteau of the words "Palestine" and "Hollywood" and as defined here is "used to describe alleged media manipulation, distortion or fraud by the Palestinians and other Arabs designed to win the public relations war against Israel", the "Hollywood" part coming from the undoubtedly high standard of the nevertheless fictional works.

One example is the alleged shooting in the back of an unarmed Palestinian man during the riots on the Israel-Gaza border last Friday. The story came out during the Passover shutdown in Israel and the story got around the world several times before the Israelis got a chance to study the footage, never mind respond. So it's only in the last couple of days that people have started raising questions about the incident. This has been helped by the fact that, for some strange reason, the "shooting" was filmed by numerous people on numerous phones and, probably, not all of them were as clued into the....(ahem!) staging requirements as the producer and director.

A far more hilarious example emerged this morning when The Palestinian Information Center published a picture of what they claimed was "A French doctor arriv[ing] in the Gaza Strip to offer medical help to the wounded Palestinian protesters". Unfortunately, the woman is neither French nor a doctor. She's the American actress Katherine Heigl and the nearest she ever got to being a doctor was when she played the part of a doctor in Grey's Anatomy, which is where the photo below came from.


It was a barefaced, triple-A, 24 carat lie published by people who don't even bother trying to tell the truth any more (if they ever did) so lazy have they become from the unquestioning acceptance of their propaganda. And that's from much of the media - not just the self-styled Palestinian Solidarity types.

They did eventually delete the post and issued a slimy apology. You'll see as this thread progresses that there'll be lots more examples of Pallywood creations and fabrications.

Thank you for this important thread!

There so much in youtube, but the important thing is to publish it.

They are not doing anything different from Trump or Putin.
As diversions go, that is pathetic.

And extremely dishonest. It tells us a lot about you. The OP is pointing out that the Palestinian media are extremely dishonest.

And you immediately go into reflex mode, to deflect for them. You are a disgrace.

Actually Arab athiests are an honest lot. So I don't think it is a cultural thing, as much as a CULT problem.

Is that the best you can do?
Is the best you can do in denial, to simply sneer at a Wascuito pointing out image manipulation, and go personal ?

Why are the Trots so obsessed with being personal ?

The photo on the left was retweeted 23 times on April 1st from the @Anon6_NvrForget Twitter account.

It's not from Israel or Palestine. It's actually from Syria.
