Pallywood swings back into action for Gaza conflict
Fake photo of Israeli soldier stepping on child reappears
In the propaganda war against Israel, fakery is key. Pallywood is the longest running series in the history of fiction.
This video is from the November 2012 Gaza conflict:
In the July 2014 Gaza conflict, even the BBC — notoriously hostile to Israel — has reported that many of the photos circulating in social media are fake, old, or based on conflicts elsewhere, or all of the above:
When I saw this photo of an Israeli soldier stepping on a Palestinian child circulating on Twitter, I knew it was fake:
This #Hamas militant was taken down and held at gunpoint by #Israel's noble soldiers. Thank you for protecting us! pic.twitter.com/nM1CVReeia

How did I know it was fake?
Because we have written about it before. It’s an image dating back to 2011 from a staged protest in which people pretending to be Israeli soldiers pretend to step on a child.
It circulated again in February 2012, and was exposed again. Here’s the original protest photo:

It is good to know that, once again, Israel is failing to provide Hamas et al. with any excuse to kill Israelis.
The Hamas Charter contains an agreement to engage in an advertising campaign to convince Muslims that they have an individual, religious duty to kill every Jew on the face of the earth, and re-conquer every square inch of land ever held by a Muslim regime.
Hamas has discovered that ordinary Muslims have a sense of justice that requires a reason, if they are to kill their neighbors. Because Israel fails persistently to provide such reasons, Hamas has to dip into its fantasy factory.
God bless the Israelis, I could not live up to their standards.
The cropped photo shows an AK-47 rifle, a weapon the IDF doesn’t use.
Thus knowledge of firearms pays off.
[…] digital cameras who take different shots from different angles and from different distances. As Legal Insurrection points out, the photo was actually taken in 2011 and the “Israeli” soldier was actually […]
