The Pallywood cottage industry of fake or misleading photos meant to demonize Israel never ceases.
Last June I addressed this photo then circulating on Facebook purporting to show an Israeli soldier stepping on a Palestinian girl:
Via information provided by Israel Matzav, I pointed out that the soldier was not Israeli, as evidenced by the boots, clothing and weapon.
I couldn’t understand why, in the past few days, I began getting traffic linking to that old post. Now I know why.
The same photo is circulating again and being used to incite people against Israel. And as before the photo still does not depict an Israeli soldier. Via the IDF Blog and Elder of Ziyon, we now know that the photo is from an anti-Israel demonstration in 2009
