Latest Palestinian Fauxtography Uncovered By..

It looks like rockets are not the only airborne objects we are seeing.

I just spotted a pig. With wings.

Graphic images are being shared on social media to show how people have been affected by the renewed tensions between Israel and the Palestinians.

Over the past week the hashtag #GazaUnderAttack has been used hundreds of thousands of times, often to distribute pictures claiming to show the effects of Israeli airstrikes on Gaza.

A #BBCtrending investigation has found that many of these images are not from the latest conflict and not even from Gaza. Some date as far back as 2009 and others are from conflicts in Syria and Iraq.

Welcome to the party, BBC. Just one small point.

Your own staff have been known to do this exact thing.

    What is going on?
    1. BBC exposes Pallywood.
    2. Turkey suggests a Kurdish state would be a good idea.
    But in this part of the world, it’s business as usual.

    BBC America coverage today has YET to mention a single rocket. Apparently the Jews woke up today and just decided to bomb the hell out of Gaza because, well, because they’re Jews and Jews are evil.

      We are? Thank heaven! It’s about time we started perpetuating the famed cycle of violence, instead of sitting there and taking it. Maybe someone should get up in the Knesset and read Bialik’s poem B’ir Hahariegah out loud.

    The BBC here is like a husband whose wife is cheating on him. Without being handed proof, he can pretend that nothing is wrong. But when someone takes him by the arm, guides him to the window, and shows him his wife in bed with somebody, he can no longer pretend anymore.

      Oh, my, there is a great clip about that, from an old movie, where the guy convinces his wife that she is seeing things, while the girl is dressing and leaves. This is the American press with Obama. They caught him, and they don’t care.
