Israel-Haters Again Co-Opt Photos of Palestinian Crime to Invent a Jewish One

Anti-Israel propaganda Facebook page Olive Palestine yesterday posted photos supposedly showing the damage that some Jews inflicted upon palestinian-owned vehicles:

Notice the Hebrew on some of the photos? It indicates the photos are from a Telegram channel called “Chadashot 55.” And if you go to that Telegram channel, you find out what these photos are really showing:

Translation: One of the vehicles that was hit by the stone throwing near Azzun, a couple of parents and a girl were in the vehicle miraculously unharmed. At least 5 vehicles were damaged in the incident.

Translation: Additional photos from the event of stone throwing by Arabs from Azzun on Route 55. 5 slightly injured. A miracle.

In fact, in a meta turn of events, the very same Telegram channel later bemoaned the fact that Olive Palestine was using these photos to lie:

Translation: The lie of the Arabs – they present the stone attacks on Route 55 as “settler” terrorism against the Palestinians.

This is not the first time the anti-Israel propagandists have taken a palestinian Arab crime against Jews to libel us with accusations we committed aforesaid crime against palestinian Arabs. And it likely won’t be the last, because they usually get away with it.
