Popular Blog exposes photo as fake. Photo:

A popular pro-Israel blog has exposed what it says is a fake photo of Israeli police brutality.

The photo, circulated widely online by anti-Israel activists, shows what look like Israeli police officers taking a Palestinian woman into custody. The woman is bleeding and one officer is brandishing a weapon.

According to a post by Aussie Dave at, the photo is not genuine. What’s his Proof? The officers pictured are not wearing standard issue Israeli police uniforms, and the weapon pictured is not a standard issue handgun. In fact, the blogger suspects that the police hats are from a kid’s costume.

    The very creation of fake photos and hoax accounts, again and again down through the years, by the Palestinians (even on official Palestinian Authority websites) proves three things: 1, the overwhelming decency of Israeli treatment of Palestinians even in conflict situations, which means that provocative videos, photos, and accounts cannot honestly be derived from the reality — this is a great credit to the IDF, the Israeli police, and the Israeli public. Moreover, it also proves, 2, the deep-rooted malicious, intentional lying nature of the Palestinians and their supporters. The number of hoax propaganda slanders from them is legion. This also means that anything they say for Western media consumption cannot be trusted, including claims about civilian casualties in conflicts. And 3, the absence in media accounts of independent investigation and verification of any and all Palestinian claims, and the complete one-sidedness of the global media, which never reports on these falsifications as such, but rather only repeats them ad nauseum against Israel, proves the fundamental antisemitic bias of those media organizations.

    But it goes beyond just anti-Jewish prejudice. As usual, the treatment of Jewish issues is a symptom of much deeper problems in the prejudiced societies. We notice something of the same peculiar media silence and one-sidedness for example even when dealing with the effective ethnic cleansing of Christians from the Palestinian territories and from the entire Muslim Middle East. Very little has been reported of this, and if it is at all, it is not sheeted home to Islamic hate-incitement and violence, for, after all, “Islam is a tolerant religion of peace.” So there is a drastically pro-authoritarian, pro-Muslim, anti-Western orientation to the global media organizations’ reporting that itself poses a major challenge to the future of Western societies and democratic values generally.
