Again another Pallywood ?
There is considerable doubt on what really happenend recently on a Gaza Beach where "according to Palestinan Sources" Israeli shelling killed about seven Palestinian civilians sitting there at a familiy picknick. As usual, there is a crime scene, which is under Palestinian control and where the evidence is quickly removed, some doctored footage is broadcasted, Israeli officials are quick to apologize and Kofi Annan calls for an investigation*. It is not clear what happened although this sounds an awful lot like some new Palestinian propaganda designed to discredit Israel and make Tsahal appear like a bunch of nazi-like butchers. Once again however the rule must be: Beware of Arab propaganda.
Richard Landes (creator of the Second Draft which produced the famous Pallywood-movies) about this latest story:
I’ve now seen the footage of the BBC, Al Jazeera, and CNN. It bears all the marks of Pallywood:In case you haven't seen the two Pallywood-movies made by the Second Draft yet, you really should take a look at them (each is about 15 min. long, I commented here and here on them). The first one shows how trustworthy "Palestinian sources" are. The second one is about the infamous Mohamed Al-Dura case, where Israeli soldiers where blamed for having killed a Palestinian boy. In every case, these are excellent examples of how blunt lies are spread through our MSM (Mainstream Media). "A lie can get halfway around the world before the truth puts its pants on", as the old saying goes. But the harm will always be already done.
Both Second Draft movies will lead you to question what has been shown so far on the deaths on the Gaza beach. In case you haven't seen the official (doctored) Palestinian footage on the incident a few days ago yet, you can download it at Palestinian Media Watch:
Palestinian Authority TV has been repeatedly broadcasting a falsified video clip of the events surrounding the deaths of seven family members on the Gaza beach on Friday. In an attempt to blame Israel's navy for the deaths, PA TV took unrelated video of an Israeli missile boat firing at Gaza earlier in the day and edited them into the scenes, creating the impression Israeli responsibility. (...)Another well-known example of Pallywood and anti-Israeli lies is this picture from 2000. More on this one at HonestReporting : The Photo that started it all:
