How to Check If a Photo Is Faked or Not What It Is Claimed to Be

With Hamas & the Saudi-Muslim-Brotherhood-backed 'rebels' in Syria putting out faked photos of supposed dead children and others & the lazy mainstream media just accepting them without verifying them, here's an easy way to check a photo's source...

If the media doesn't care about exposing how Hamas fakes pictures of Palestinians, that doesn't mean we have to accept that. Spread the truth about fake pictures presented by Hamas in their effort to bias the world against Israel. Post these fake pics in facebook or simply email them to others you know.

Lying is wholeheartedly permitted in Islam to advance it by any means. Hamas is acting like a true Muslim terrorist group.

We already know about all these lies, the trouble is that the world happily believes them...

Apart from their family albums I'd have thought that all Hamas photos were fakes.
Thanks Carola.

What a great tool! Thanks a bunch. We trust almost nothing we see in the mainstream media. Where did all the real journalists go?

The problem is that many photos are distributed by Reuters and we know that they are anti-Semitic. Reuters has become somewhat notorious for not checking sources but as presenting them as real. I have seen the pictures taken by satellite of funerals where the dead arise!! I have seen the same children turn up in different attacks on Gaza (so, only 6 children live there).

Then there is the UNWRA school attack where Israel was accused of attacking a school. When it was later revealed that it was actually a terrorist with a rocket launcher next to the school knowing that Israel will not hurt children, UNWRA was silent. This lie is still believed. Then there is the football field where, in the middle of a war, invisible people were playing football.....only to find that rockets had been stored there.

As usual, I ask where the anti-Semites are and I can tell you, looking for untrue stories and lambasting Israel with their lies and hate.

> Hamas has been posting fake photos online. Most of the ones I've seen are of children murdered in Syria
Let's (for the sake of argumant) assume this to be true.
Then there's still the little matter that its only "children ALLEGEDLY murdered in Syria", as MSM HAVE been using images from elsewhere (e.g. Iraq) passing them off as "from Syria"

here's one example:
ZDF (German TV) tried to pass off 2007-(uploaded to youtube)-video (showing atrocities probably committed in Iraq) as current "government's crackdown" in Syria -- backup of both vids

Pallywood is more creative than Arabian Nights.

The best play they ever made: all descendants from Arab refugees are UN refugees forever, and forever on UN payroll.

Isn't the rest of the world, especially the developed world paying the bill, just a bunch of suckers? We Canadians are also paying to Palestinian Arabs.

Not to those who need to move out of Afganistan. Or Mali. Or Egypt. Not to the real people in need.

Good points, Rahman.

This is a terrific video. If those who are committed to the Palestinian cause to the degree that they either lie or find lying is acceptable, then those people are probably not going to be swayed. But many other people are unschooled enough on Islamic lying, Taqiyya, that they don't understand that there are evil people who deliberately do this, and these well-meaning, but ignorant people believe the lies, because they just don't understand that people lie as part of the war against democracy, Israel, truth, freedom and rights.

If people don't take responsibility for verifying what they're told, they become a part of the dishonest propaganda machinery, and become part of the evil themselves.

Thanks, Carola.

Thanks for unveiling the trickery Carola. The truth will set us free of this insane indulgence of terrorists and Islamic carpetbaggers.

The Muslim terrorists had become skillful in applying Amin al Husseini, Mufti of Jerusalem propaganda teachings, which Mufti improved while spending WWII in Berlin, egging Hitler on to hurry up exterminating Jew in Europe na and come to Palestine. While Taqiytya, an Islamic principle of lying is part of Qur'anic teachings to deceive Kafir (a derogatory name Muslims and Qur'an use to call non-Muslims, whom they despise), Mufti had learned from Goebbels ho to deceive Westerners with fake "news".

The most skillful application of taqiyya had been done by Barack Hussein Obama who managed to deceive 2/3 of American Jews in US to vote for him and even help him organize campaign of deceit. Oy veh! US has a president who is subverting US Constitution and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in order to prevent the truth about Islam to be known: Islam is a supremacist ideology, similar to Nazi supremacist ideology, including its delusional Jew hatred. In addition Islam promotes pedophilia, misogyny, polygamy, dhimmitude and murder for Allahu Akbar. Unless Islam REFORMS, it has no place in a society that respects liberty, justice and human rights.

US MUST ABANDON political correctness which is preventing rational thinking to defend Western civilization from the onslaught of Jihad and tell the truth rather then falling for Muslim propaganda about Islam by CAIR and helped by Barack Hussein Obama.

I hope you will all save this great tool and use it when there are controversial photos put out by the media from anywhere, but especially from Gaza, the West Bank and now Syria where the powers that be in the West have determined that they, again sadly, are going to help the Muslim Brotherhood and Saudi-backed 'rebels' take over another country and ethnically cleanse it, which is already happening with non-Muslims.

It shouldn't be so hard to find unbiased news media. Isn't that what they are supposedly trained to be - unbiased and to verify their sources and information before they pass it on as fact? Those days are long gone.

You can also often spot staged photos by looking at the photos themselves, as the staging is often done very poorly. If civilians run towards the gunfire (common Pallywood mistake) rather than behaving something like the Indian civilians in the Mumbai attacks, it's staged. If the puddle or splatter of "blood" is in straight lines (as it was in a widely distributed video during Cast Lead), it's staged. If the geometry doesn't work (like in the "al-Dura" video where pock-marks in the wall showed where bullets came from, and the people took cover from a totally different direction), it's staged. If the "IDF's guns" in the photo do not match any weapon issued by the IDF in the area, or the uniforms are wrong (or of the wrong brigade), it's staged. If the geometry doesn't work (like when civilians were "fired upon" from an Israeli position that was blocks away on the other side of stone and brick-buildings), it's staged. If the videographer says people were unarmed as their large, metal, bloody, object passes in front of the camera (Mavi Marmara reporting), something is staged.

The fakes tend to be so low quality that they are only normally believed if an audience wants to believe them. That desire to believe is another side of the problem.

I note that Rahman Q's very civilised comment has been removed again by Care2. Guess they can't bear to have an ex-Muslim speaking out. Not for the first time either. Why do they try to silence these people who are the victims of this cult of hate and death and face death for leaving it? Shouldn't they be supporting them instead of silencing them? Who is funding Care2?
