Did you hear the one about Jesus being Palestinian? It’s not true, not even close, not even in the same universe as truth, but it’s part of the Pallywood industry of fakery and cultural misappropriation that we have documented for a decade, and which has been adopted by some in the U.S., such as Senate candidate Raphael Warnock.

Nothing is sacred when it comes to rewriting history, but I have to admit, this one is particularly absurd.

Joe Truzman, who covers Palestinian Gaza-based terror groups for the Long War Journal, has tweeted an image posted by the Palestinian Joint Operations Room, the Gaza coordinating group uniting numerous terror groups preparing for combat against Israel.

The poster portrays the raising of a flag by Palestinian fighters, replicating the iconic image of the raising of the U.S. flag at Mount Surabachi on Iwo Jima by U.S. Marines.

The original image appears to come from the Palestine Information Center, a Gaza-based propaganda outfit:

I thought this reply to Truzman was pretty spot on.
