We have featured Pallywood here many times, the industry build on faux.

From numerous instances of fauxtography to wildly exaggerated reports of massacres, this industry is devoted to building the narrative of perpetual Palestinian victimhood.  From the archives:

It looks like we are seeing the same thing with the claim that polonium was used by the Israelis to kill Arafat 8 years ago.  From Jerusalem Post:

The high levels of the radioactive poison polonium reportedly found on the  belongings of the late Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat indicate that the toxin  was planted on them long after his death, a senior counterterrorism analyst told The Jerusalem Post Thursday.

Dr. Ely Karmon, of the Interdisciplinary  Center, Herzliya’s Institute for Counterterrorism, is a specialist in chemical,  biological, radiological and nuclear terrorism.

Responding to an Al  Jazeera report published Wednesday – which said that researchers at the Institut  de Radiophysique in Lausanne, Switzerland, discovered abnormally high levels of  polonium on Arafat’s belongings – Karmon said that the half-life of the  substance would make it impossible for polonium to have been discovered at such  high levels if it had been used to kill Arafat eight years ago.

As Carl at Israel Matzav sarcastically notes:

I’m sure you’re all as shocked as I am that Suha Arafat and the ‘Palestinian Authority’ would try to put one over on the world like that.
