Palestinian Fauxtography, You Are Dead (Sea) to Me

An anti-Israel Facebook page called Olive Palestine has posted the following photo of the Dead Sea., which they claim is in “Palestine.”

The photo seems to come from this website, but with one main difference:

The woman is missing. It seems they photoshopped her out of the photo. In fact, if you zoom in an look closely at the Olive Palestine version, you will see they left a bit of her shadow:

The question is why did they feel the need to photoshop her out. Is it because she is dressed “immodestly” for the tastes of those running Olive Palestine (perhaps they are Hamas or have Hamas fans)? Is it because she does not look like a palestinian Arab? Or is it as “revenge” to those behind the photo, who clearly are not of the same mindset as Olive Palestine?

We’ve said it before, but the Dead Sea is a whole lot more than just floating! Yes, you can go into the water and have the strange and glorious feeling of never sinking, but there is a lot more things to do here as well, including canyons, oases and epic hikes. It’s a must for any Israel itinerary. However, we recently found out about another unique and quirky attraction: the Dead Sea Tree.

In the middle of the Israeli Dead Sea is a salt island with one lonely tree growing there. One look online and you can see that this is a pretty stunning place to visit, but it wasn’t too obvious exactly where to find it. We knew it was in Israel, that it was a long way from the shore, but there are hundreds of salt islands and a lot of misinformation out there.

Either way, this is just another example of their dishonesty in promoting their agenda.
