This photo of an Israeli soldier standing on a young Palestinian girl is making the rounds on the internet and evoking enormous anti-Israel vitriol:
As Israel Matzav points out, however, the photo is not what it seems:
There’s one small problem – the photo is a fake.
The uniform is not an IDF uniform, the boots aren’t IDF boots and the weapon is a Russian issue AK-47 – the IDF uses American-made M-16’s.
But why let facts get in the way?
Indeed. For more on Pallywood, the decades-long Palestinian effort to fake anti-Israeli images and news which then become accepted as fact, see my prior posts:
- Pallywood meets the Gaza blockade
- Abid Katib – Palestinian Shoe Fauxtographer?
- What If Palestinians Were Settlers?
Expect Pallywood to move into high production as we approach the September U.N. General Assembly session.
UPDATE: The photo is circulating again, Another Pallywood hoax exposed, again.
