    Pallywood: Crying Blond Arab Girl Resurfaces – UPDATED

    Arabs in Judea and Samaria have brought soldier-baiting for propaganda to the degree of art, video shows.

    By Gil Ronen, INN

    Who’s abusing whom?
    A video that has been uploaded to Youtube shows how Arabs in Judea and Samaria abuse their own children and manipulate unwitting Israeli soldiers in order to manufacture photographs that can be used for propaganda purposes.

    The case in point is a situation that appears to have been masterfully directed by an unknown propagandist, starring a girl who was successfully used for the same purpose three months earlier.

    In August, Arab propagandists produced photos of a soldier manhandling a crying Arab girl – an excellent illustration of the theme propagated by Israel’s enemies, regarding Israel’s allegedly evil military occupation of Judea and Samaria.

    The girl was blond and light-skinned to boot – making the photos more touching for many westerners, as she appeared to be “one of their own.”

    The new video shows the girl in a similar situation, but this time it is plain to see what really goes on in these “photo ops.”

    The girl was obviously instructed to “get in the faces” of the soldiers, and spent a considerable amount of time cursing them, shouting herself hoarse and hitting them on occasion as well. At the same time, adults all around her were taping the occurrences, waiting for a soldier to lose his nerve.

    The staging of scenes for Israel-baiting is such a common Arab tactic in the Palestinian Authority that the industry has come to be known as “Pallywood.”

    The most famous and successful Pallywood film ever made was that in which an Arab boy, Muhammad a-Durah, was placed in proximity to a Gaza firefight in 2000, and made to look as if he had been shot dead by IDF soldiers. Belated investigations showed that shots fired at a-Durah came from Arabs.

    Another Pallywood hoax exposed, again

    by William A. Jacobson    Saturday, February 4, 2012 at 9:38am

    The Pallywood cottage industry of fake or misleading photos meant to demonize Israel never ceases.

    Last June I addressed this photo then circulating on Facebook purporting to show an Israeli soldier stepping on a Palestinian girl:

    Via information provided by Israel Matzav, I pointed out that the soldier was not Israeli, as evidenced by the boots, clothing and weapon.

    I couldn’t understand why, in the past few days, I began getting traffic linking to that old post.  Now I know why.

    The same photo is circulating again and being used to incite people against Israel.  And as before the photo still does not depict an Israeli soldier.  Via the IDF Blog and Elder of Ziyon, we now know that the photo is from an anti-Israel demonstration in 2009

      Why doesn’t Israel prosecute those engaged in these fraudulent acts of incitement? Furhter, it should ban any foreign reporters who have commited similar frauds. Just as lawyers and doctors are licensed and held to an ethical code the same is true of reporters. those who commit fraud should be defrocked.

    2. Bernard Ross says:

      The parents and the cameramen should be jailed and then deported to gaza. the foreign provocateur reporter should get a rifle butt in the face first, then jailed, then beaten by the other prisoners in Jail then dumped across the border in Syria.

      I have been wondering about the Nordic mujahadeen girl for over a week.

      And that skimpy shirt?! Where is the burqa?!

    6. CuriousAmerican says:

      Technically, the Crusaders – who came mostly from England, Germany, and Northern France, all Nordic areas – left their mark. There are a few oddities.

      The Grand Mufit, Hajj Amin al Husseini had blue eyes and auburn hair.

      Khader Adnan, the recent Islamic Jihad hunger striker, who was released has blue eyes, and a black beard, but with reddish highlights. His daugher reputedly has blue eyes, too.

      Some of them have Crusaders in the woodpile. Not many, but a few.

      King Hussein of Jordan and Bashir Assad, both have blue eyes.

      Freedom of Speech!

      Do you want to license reporters, now?! How fascist of you!

      Tyrannies always licensed reporters.

      There is a way to fight this.

      Get a camera and video the cameramen who circle the event and expose them a ambulance chasers.

      But do not touch free speech.

      free speech is your god not mine. When it comes to those who incite against the jews. Every dirty trick is allowable against them. They are playing a dirty lying game and nothing is as sweet as seeing one of those dogs get a rifle butt in the face. Those that use democracy to incite murder cannot rely on its protection. They rely on Israel to play by the rules which they abuse. The rules were made to be broken: its time the Jews woke up to the fact that everyone else breaks the rules and then demands that the Jews play by the rules. I am suspicious of those who assert such arguments.

      Free speech is not the same as the practice of manufacturing false news. Why should they be exempt from punishment for fraudulent activity? why do you care so much about “reporters” who incite against jews. If democracy allows incitement against jews then screw democracy for those who do the incitement. I dont agree with preserving the false image of democracy which allows blood libels.

      Israel plays dirty tricks, too. She has been caught in lies.

      That is the nature of all propaganda.

      Israeli tends to call even peaceful protestors terrorists. Even those who merely protest peaceably are called a menace to the Jewish state; and can be arrested.

      You might not call that a lie. You may think they are a menace, but by clear understanding this is exaggerating to the point of lying.

      I am not condemning Israel, but they do it a lot. So does the USA and everybody else.

      Free speech is important. It cannot be dispensed because you find it inconveniet. With the loss of free speech, also goes the loss of freedom of religion, and in a 90% Christian country, this is not a safe position for a Jew to take.

      More BS and absolute rubbish, your world is in your own mind. I am not criticizing free speech I am advising teaching the tricksters lessons they wont forget. The French provocateur who was being put in the van should have been taught a lesson that he never comes back, he cannot claim protection of democracy. When other inmates beat him up in prison it will be an exercise in democracy. Democracy is the rule of the majority. I am always suspicious of those like you who endlessly advise Jews to be turning the other cheek while espousing dogmas that slaughters and swindle jews to this day.

      @ CuriousAmerican:

      What lies?

      Israeli tends to call even peaceful protestors terrorists.

      An Al-Qaeda member protesting in your opinion is not a terrorist?

      Next you will contend that Jesus was not a criminal, not even a terrorist, even though when he preached sedition, slandered the rabbis, and caused property damage, general mayhem, disturbing the peace, interference with freedom of trade and commerce and assault with a deadly weapon, when he took a whip to the peaceful lawful money changers an honorable and necessary function of our Jewish rituals. He also violated the sanctity of the Jewish temple and the G-d of the Jews.

      Looks like an act of a madman because if the crowd didn’t kill him on the spot the lawful authorities would and apparently did. Most deservedly I might add.

      In my country foreigners have no rights other than what we Jews allow them. Were it up to me I would bar any non Jew from even stepping a foot in my country and this will be, maybe not tomorrow but it will be. Your ways are not ours, your American values and laws are not ours and we really don’t want them here either.

    17. yamit82 says:

      @ CuriousAmerican:

      The Talmud makes some slanderous references to my Savior, calling him Jesus ben Pandera.

      Passage #1: Ben Stada

      Talmud Shabbat 104b, Sanhedrin 67a

      It is taught: R. Eliezer told the sages: Did not Ben Stada bring witchcraft with him from Egypt in a cut that was on his skin? They said to him: He was a fool and you cannot bring proof from a fool.

      Ben Stada is Ben Pandira.

      R. Chisda said: The husband was Stada and the lover was Pandira.

      [No,] the husband was Pappos Ben Yehudah and the mother was Stada.

      [No,] the mother was Miriam the women’s hairdresser [and was called Stada]. As we say in Pumbedita: She has turned away [Stat Da] from her husband.

      Summary
      What we see from here is that there was a man named Ben Stada who was considered to be a practicer of black magic. His mother was named Miriam and also called Stada. His father was named Pappos Ben Yehudah. Miriam (Stada) had an affair with Pandira from which Ben Stada was born.

      Proof
      Some historians claim that Ben Stada, also known as Ben Pandira, was Jesus. His mother’s name was Miriam which is similar to Mary. Additionally, Miriam was called a women’s hairdresser, “megadla nashaia” [for this translation, see R. Meir Halevi Abulafia, Yad Rama, Sanhedrin ad. loc.]. The phrase “Miriam megadla nashaia” sounds similar to Mary Magdalene, a well-known New Testament figure.

      Problems
      1. Mary Magdalene was not Jesus’ mother. Neither was Mary a hairdresser.
      2. Jesus’ step-father was Joseph. Ben Stada’s step-father was Pappos Ben Yehudah.
      3. Pappos Ben Yehudah is a known figure from other places in talmudic literature. The Mechilta Beshalach (Vayehi ch. 6) has him discussing Torah with Rabbi Akiva and Talmud Berachot 61b has Pappos Ben Yehudah being captured and killed by Romans along with Rabbi Akiva. Rabbi Akiva lived during the second half of the first century and the first half of the second century. He died in the year 134. If Pappos Ben Yehudah was a contemporary of Rabbi Akiva’s, he must have been born well after Jesus’ death and certainly could not be his father.

      @ CuriousAmerican:

      What of R. Yehoshua Ben Perachiah?

      When John [Hyrcanus] the king killed the rabbis, R. Yehoshua Ben Perachiah [and Yeshu] went to Alexandria of Egypt. When there was peace, Shimon Ben Shetach sent to him “From me [Jerusalem] the holy city to you Alexandria of Egypt. My husband remains in your midst and I sit forsaken.”

      [R. Yehoshua Ben Perachiah] left and arrived at a particular inn and they showed him great respect. He said: How beautiful is this inn [Achsania, which also means innkeeper].

      [Yeshu] said: Rabbi, she has narrow eyes.

      [R. Yehoshua Ben Perachiah] said to him: Wicked one, this is how you engage yourself?

      [R. Yehoshua Ben Perachiah] sent out four hundred trumpets and excommunicated him.

      [Yeshu] came before [R. Yehoshua Ben Perachiah] many times and said: Accept me. But [R. Yehoshua Ben Perachiah] paid him no attention.

      One day [R. Yehoshua Ben Perachiah] was reciting Shema [during which one may not be interrupted]. [Yeshu] came before him. He was going to accept [Yeshu] and signalled to [Yeshu] with his hand. [Yeshu] thought that [R. Yehoshua Ben Perachiah] was repelling him. He went, hung a brick, and bowed down to it.

      [Yeshu] said to [R. Yehoshua Ben Perachiah]: You taught me that anyone who sins and causes others to sin is not given the opportunity to repent.

      And the master said: Yeshu {the Notzri} practiced magic and deceive and led Israel astray.

      @ yamit82:

      Touchy, touchy.

      I remember reading a quote on the site of ADL (Anti-Defamation Leaque) which referred to a Balaam (false prophet) the son of Miriam, the carpenter’s wife who lead Israel into idolatry or witchcraft.

      Miriam (Mary) the carpenter’s wife, whose son apparently had mighty powers and ran afoul of the rabbis.

      And the ADL said this was NOT a reference to Jesus?!!! C’mon!

      http://www.come-and-hear.com/dilling/exhibits/114.jpg The site may be nasty, but the picture is real.

      My point is not even that.

      I believe in Free speech and would not hurt a rabbi for his opinions, even though I consider them to be slanderous lies.

      How in the world can anyone read a passage about a Balaam (a generic term for a false prophet, based on a real balaam) whose mother was Mary (Mariam), the Carpenter’s wife; and this son lead Israel away from the rabbis – how could they read that – and deny it was a reference to the Christian Jesus?

      What is this? The Life of Brian.

      Likewise, that freedom which is extended to Jews has to be extended in general.

      Don’t play with free speech.

      Don’t respect free speech because it helps me; respect it because it protects you.

He also violated the sanctity of the Jewish temple and the G-d of the Jews.

      Sedition?!

      Against whom?!

      He healed the Roman Centurion. So he was not seditious against Rome.

      There was NO Jewish state he could revolt against. So he was not seditious against Israel.

      He did criticize the Rabbis. So did every other decent Jewish Prophet. Wasn’t Isaiah cut in half for criticizing the Jewish power structure?

      A rump section of the Sanhedrin trumped up charges – I do not say all the Jews, or even all the Sanhedrin – but section of the Sanhedrin trumped up charges and turned him over to the Romans for execution. The Romans were not even eager to go after him. They were reluctant, but they caved in to pressure.

      The crime was a joint effort. You cannot blame it all on the Italians.

      Babylonian Talmud: Tractate Sanhedrin

      Folio 43a

      On the eve of the Passover Yeshu was hanged. For forty days before the execution took place, a herald went forth and cried, ‘He is going forth to be stoned because he has practised sorcery and enticed Israel to apostasy. Any one who can say anything in his favour, let him come forward and plead on his behalf.’ But since nothing was brought forward in his favour he was hanged on the eve of the Passover!

      Okay, they changed crucifixtion to hanging. Hang … hung on a cross. Not as much a change as it appears at first.

      But both were hung on the eve of Passover for leading Israel into apostasy.

      Interesting!

      I forgot. This is the life of Brian. Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.

      Look I do not care. But if you want freedom for yourself, you have to give it to others.

      It is your business what they write in the Talmud; but then you must extend that same freedom to reporters. If you want to examine everything a reporter writes for truth value, then maybe Judaism – in fact all religion – should be examined for truth value?!

      None would hold up well.

      Don’t touch freedom of speech.

      To Ted: the point here is freedom of speech. Yamit and Bernard Ross were trying to curtail it/license it.

      I am merely showing that if the same rules were applied to frum Jews – they were forced to edit all the sages based on truth value – then a lot of Jewish texts would be in trouble. As would a lot of Christian traditions.

      DO NOT TOUCH FREEDOM OF SPEECH.

    24. Bernard Ross says:

      CuriousAmerican Said:

      the point here is freedom of speech.

      The first point is that it is in Israel not in america and therefore you and I have nothing to “touch”. I am not suggesting to touch freedom of speech in Israel, I am suggesting a way that they prevent provocateurs from lying and inciting. It is their country and their community to decide whether they want to extend freedom of speech to those trying to kill them. I am also suggesting ways to treat dirty tricksters. Obviously the provocateurs feel safe enough to film the idf while they provoke them, perhaps they should not be allowed to feel so safe. They feel as safe in gaza, perhaps this feeling should end. I have been to many countries where if I operated in that manner my body would be found floating in the sea. In those situations there have been laws guaranteeing freedoms, but they were not observed. Those countries would not have these problems. Being fascist to your existential enemy cannot be compared with internal fascism. They are the enemy, this is proven time and time again. Because they lack the power to inflict their desires does not exempt them from the treatment dexerving an enemy.

    25. Bernard Ross says:

      CuriousAmerican Said:

      a nation does not have to extend all rights to everyone. the may restrict the rights of foreigners and hostile non citizens or residents. None of these provocateurs would operate as such in islamic countries.
