We’ve previously looked at Ghassan Daghlas, the person whose job it is to lie about Jews in Judea and Samaria.

I’m not joking. Daghlas is in charge of the Israeli Settlements File for the Palestinian Authority for the northern part of the West Bank.

He has been quoted hundreds of times about what the evil Jews have been doing, and his record of telling the truth is pretty much nonexistent. Stories of Jews uprooting olive trees and burning crops on Shabbat are part of his weekly routine, and no Arab media outlet is going to check on any of his preposterous lies. And he never, ever produces photos of his discoveries.

Entebbe: Are We Heeding the Lessons?

July 4th marks the 40th anniversary of the rescue of Israeli hostages at Entebbe. Today we are surrounded by international terrorism....

Now, the episode in Duma is giving him a chance to show off more of his skills at creating lurid lies and incitement against Jews.

Daghlas is being quoted in Arab media as having discovered “new details” of the firebombing of the house in Duma.

He quotes unnamed “witnesses” as saying that the “settlers” had first thrown the Molotov cocktails at the home, and then waited for the family to leave so they could pour gasoline on them ans set them on fire directly. Afterwards, he says, the Jews danced around the victims ecstatically as they burned.

Also, a 5-year-old tried to stop them but they tried to kidnap him. He escaped and told the neighbors, who presuambly watched passively as the Jews danced around the burning Arabs.

Just for fun, I Googled how many times Mondoweiss quoted this liar as a reliable source.

The answer: 227.

But it isn’t only Mondoweiss. Daghlas has been quoted uncritically by The New York Times, Reuters, CNN and many other news outlets.

It simply does not occur to the media that the PA pays a man to lie to their faces. And they pay him with Western donor funds.

But the media cannot cover this story because it will show them to be dupes.
