Haters Co-opt Touching Video of Israeli-Arab Medical Students Dancing the Dabka at Coronavirus Testing Station


The following video has been doing the rounds among palestinians and Israel-haters, purported to be of “palestinian healthcare workers at a coronavirus drive-in testing station doing a dabka dance”

Tamra is an Arab city in the Lower Galilee. In Israel. In other words, it is an Israeli-Arab city, not palestinian Arab.

What’s more, Israeli-Arab Knesset member Ayman Odeh posted the video, attributing it to “Dean Ariel” of the Medical Students Union

StandWithUs mentions Dean Ariel as well, even linking to his Facebook profile

Naturally, he is Israeli.

In other words, a beautiful moment showing religious freedom in Israel – depicting Israeli-Arab medical students and shared by an Israeli-Arab member of the Knesset – has been co-opted by the other side to somehow depict “palestinian healthcare workers.”

Their lying never abates.
