Pallywood, the Palestinian industry producing everything from outright video hoaxes to mere gross exaggerations all in the name of demonizing Israel.
Pallywood, the Palestinian industry devoted to manipulating the Western press through fake injuries and damage from Israelis.
But there is an even more pernicious western media version of Pallywood, the outright bias and misleading characterization of acts of terror against Israel.
These actions often are deliberate provocations set up by media and activists who side with the Palestinians, in which a phalanx of photographers and videographers waits to catch an Israeli soldier responding to a provocation. The use of children as provocateurs is a common tactic — nothing plays better in the media than the image of an Israeli soldier confronting a child.
But those children often are engaged in violent behavior, particularly rock throwing. A “rock” can shatter a skull, or in where thrown at a moving vehicle, can cause a serious accident.
To the media, rock throwing is no big deal. Because the media has not been on the receiving end.
