Those who have created a habitation for hate in their heart, will be willing to believe the absurd, the impossible, the incredulous in an attempt to bolster their hate. They will utilize whatever possible to accomplish their mission.
Many, including myself, have been a victim of such injustice, but none as often or as maliciously as the State of Israel and the Jewish people.
And the most recent form of paltering propaganda can be found by Israel’s enemies exploiting edited video/film technology to accomplish their dirty deeds … and it’s been dubbed: Pallywood.
Pallywood is a portmanteau word which merges “Palestinian” with “Hollywood” and is, according to Calev Ben-David, “media manipulation, distortion and outright fraud by the Palestinians (and other Arabs, such as the Reuters photographer caught faking photos during the Second Lebanon War), designed to win the public relations war against Israel.” Professor Richard Landes of Boston University produced an 18-minute online documentary video called, Pallywood: According to Palestinian Sources. The film shows Arab-Israeli conflict-related footage that was taken by freelance “Palestinian” journalists and has been methodically manipulated by the media. This propaganda dates back to the 1982 Lebanon War. Landes argues, in essence, that newscasters have neglected their duty to verify the authenticity of the “Palestinian” footage.
But why has the media failed to live up to their journalistic obligations?
The answer can be found in my opening sentence. When someone is committed to an agenda, they will believe the greatest absurdity, as long as it solidifies/supports that view.
