This is latest in a long line of faked photos by Arabs or pro-Palestinian supporters resorting to deception in a long campaign to demonize and deligitimize Israel. One would hope that people will wise-up to this and learn to think skeptically every time they see a photo about supposed abuse by Israelis.

Just a few weeks ago there was a big picture of a grown Palestinian man in the Washington Post who was on the ground looking almost looking like he was having a temper tantrum. The photographer had picked a place just below the man's face from which to take the picture, and the caption read something like "Israeli tractor runs over Palestinian's legs". Not surprisingly, a few days later it came out that the man had nothing wrong with him and got up and walked away after the picture was taken.

Thank you Beth for bringing this important message. Islamist PR machine specialized in producing videos, demonizing Israel and showing Palestinian Arabs as hapless victims. Nowhere on such videos can one see their rockets, rifles, mines, knives and whatever else they get to harm Jewish Israelis.

There are many Arab actors, who pose as a dead victim in one video just to appear dead in another video shot several months later.

Such blatant lies are unmatched since Dr. Goebbels times.

Inside Arab territories only posters of live or killed murderers are posted - everywhere, to keep the militant spirit running.

Someone has to investigate why Reuters agreed to participate in that farce - they work in the Middle East and now how lies are concocted since Muhammed Dura, killed by Arabs and blamed on Israelis. Israel won the court and proved French TV lying, but several Israelis were killed by the crazy mob, like US soldiers were killed in Afganistan.

Shame to Reuters for publishing the garbage in the first place.

Thank you so much, Bob. You are really up on this. I remember the "dead" Arab who kept on appearing in different Reuters pictures in different scenes in Lebanon -- sometimes with his hat on and others with the hat off. There were also the doctored photos on the Mavi Marmara.

Many Muslims have a special gift for lying and deception, and why not? Allah himself, according to the Qur'an is said to deceive.

It's a very sick and perverted religion as the cultures are that have flowed from the same smelly waters. I hope people wake up and smell the evil.

The Palywood propaganda machine really excels in this kind of deception and the rest of the world is happy to swallow it: hook, line and sinker.
Thanks Beth.

If you want to send a complaint to the UN about the lies by these UN "employees"/Propagandists ...

Here is the contact page for the main OCHA headquarters at the UN:

http://www.unocha.org/contact

At the very least, these liars should be put on notice that folks will write to the UN & demand some accountability and truthfulness from their "workers"! !

I have seen that guy holding a child in previous photo shots. I will certainly complain to the UN employees - for all the good it will do. Still one can but hope. Thanks Beth and Lydia.

Then there's the videos we've seen on youtube of the 'dead' Palestinians getting up and walking away when they think the cameras are off, like the 'dead' guy on the stretcher who gets dropped, rolls off then gets back on for his 'funeral' procession.

Lydia..Thanks for that link!! I sent them a letter...here it is...

Just to let you know that I and millions of Americans know that whenever we see pictures showing atrocities that "supposedly" Israeli's commit we KNOW it's a fraud! Stop lying to people! Don't any of you have any integrity at all!? I KNOW that the people of Israel do not commit the crimes that are seen in pictures. It's really sad when one has to stoop to the level of a "gutter" in order to try and send a false vision to people of the world! You should all be ASHAMED of yourselves!! There is enough atrocities happening in this world without adding fake ones to the situation. Why not look to the Muslim atrocities and take the ACTUAL pictures of that to send out! At least you could be honest!! Hypocrites are beneath the lowest as far as I am concerned and what you are doing here fits that description!!

the charge was" religiously aggravated harassment" so that knocks "Offence to virtually anyone" out the window

This is the celebratory dance? Twenty-four people are killed and that is not from a fake tweet. You make it sound like this is some big propaganda machine when in fact it was a lone tweeter. On the other hand we have a government which claims to be "the jewel in the desert", the "most moral army in the world", the "only democracy in the Middle East" continually lie and then only admit when caught and I see no commentary on that. Did the Gazan government claim that this three year old girl was killed? Nope. In addition, anyone familiar with the conflict knows this picture is a fake, it was reported on extensively when it happened.

This is Israel's most recent, oops, we lied. "In early February, a French woman was injured during the weekly demonstration. After initially claiming that her injury was caused by rocks thrown by other protesters, the IDF later admitted that they may have been caused by a tear gas canister shot by the army after a video of the event was published."

So I wouldn't be doing the dance of joy, just yet. What is more serious, a fraudulent claim by one tweeter or the lies of the self described minion of morality, the State of Israel?

I wonder who you really are and what you do for a living Margaret Mayer my guess is your name is something like Aziz or Abdul and that you make rockets in your backyard for Hezbollah.

Margaret, don't be shy, you know that "lone tweeter" is not heard much. Someone's creativity makes such gems as "Massacre in Jenin", "Natives of Palestinian Lands", "Peace-loving Palestinian Arabs", etc.

I don't see any tragedy in Israel taking about 24 terrorists who managed to shoot over 200 rockets into Israel. I think these Islamists are enemies of the whole civilized world, including Canada, and I am happy for Israel to have this victory.

Do you like terrorists shooting rockets at Israeli civilians, Margaret? DO you think it's OK for them to walk around at bomb Israel when they feel like it?

I forgot another world famous fake - Mohammed Durah, killed by Arabs, blaimed on Jews.

How many innocent people were killed because of that fake - even more than in Afganistan, when those crazies found a few burnt books and started killing Americans even before they found out who really burnt the books.

It wasn't one lone tweeter - he needed actors, he had witnesses watching what he did. It is in fact Islamist PR machine.

How many YouTube videos are posted by the same islamist PR brigade? On how many hundreds of websites? Europeans are upset when they discover that they pay for that, but are too much of po9litically correct to stop the fraud.

We have also seen the videos showing the phony 'dead' Palestinian 'victim' of Israeli attacks, falling off stretchers and getting up and back on the stretcher on his way to his riotous tragic 'funeral' march. How can anyone believe anything these people say when they are brutally persecuting all minorities in their 'territory'?

Here's a very interesting article written by a leftist film maker who used to hate and rail against Israel, but who has completely changed his view, just as we have:

UN = Useless Nations. The insane, vitriolic hatred of all things Jewish by some that are supposed to be our friends and allies just deepens my resolve.

MARGARET MAYER, how clever of you to comment on Israel and the US solider who rampaged killing 16 Afghanis, in the same sentence. You disgust me.

Did anybody see pictures from Gaza? Not from the bombed Hamas HQ which are shown everywhere, but Gaza Library, Mosques, Squares, etc?

Guys, you should see them! After all, this is our tax dollars at work! And the work is beautiful. I can't attach the photos from PPS that I've got, but they are fabulous. If Gaza would not be under Islamist rule, I would consider taking a vacation there.

I have seen that video of the Palestinian "corpse" in the coffin fall out and then get up and run back to the coffin, fall out again and get back in again.

If the Palestinian false-propaganda machine weren't so deadly and corrupting, it would be a hysterical slap-stick comedy movie.

Noted. Thanks for sharing this, Rob & Jay. If this is true, then all responsible need to be investigated and punished. And if you can, please send me some clips from you tube. I would love to see those.
