Ma’aniac Media Mockery

Yesterday I posted about Sami Samoudi, the terrorist armed with a Kalashnikov assault rifle, who opened fire at an IDF post, and was subsequently turned into worm food by the troops there.

Subsequently, the PA arrested three terrorists belonging to Islamic Jihad, possibly in connection to the attack.

The question for the palestinian Ma’an News agency was how to report these arrests, while at the same time painting Israel as the aggressor.


palestinian policePA makes arrests after Palestinian killed at checkpoint

Security forces loyal to President Mahmoud Abbas arrested three Islamic Jihad affiliates shortly after Israeli troops shot dead a Palestinian at a checkpoint in the occupied West Bank.

Sources in the movement said intelligence services arrested three affiliates, identified as Adeeb Samudi, Murad Nawahdah and Samer Jaber, and searched the homes of other members of the party.

It was not clear if the men had any connection to Salem Omar As-Samudi, 24, from Jenin, who, according to Israel’s army and witnesses, ran toward Israeli forces at a checkpoint before they shot him dead.

They’ve turned lying into an art form.
