Pallywood

Posted 8 August 2006 in Israel, mainstream-media, Palestine, Pallywood, staged, and video

I just watched a video titled "Pallywood", and it highlights the deliberate staged "fighting" that Palestinians engage in for the world's mainstream media outlets. Israel is absolutely demonized on-camera, but the entire thing is staged over and over again.

I have to say that this is the most damning evidence of the American media's negligence and incompetence that I have ever seen. I'm appalled that the raw footage is so casually combed for choice bits and pieces of gunfire and injuries.

WATCH. THIS. VIDEO.

Note: I am too uninformed to have a justifiable opinion regarding the conflicts between Israel and Palestine. I'm merely disgusted that U.S. media outlets have been such willing accessories to the deceptions of the Palestinians.
