A Facebook group posted a video of a child being bitten by a dog, pointing to the incident as an example of “Israeli brutality,” pro-Israel blogger Elder of Ziyon reported on Tuesday.

The administrator of the social media community, going by the name of “Immortal Che Guevara” – an homage to the late Argentinian Marxist guerrilla terrorist – commented: “Palestinian child is bitten by a dog, which is incited, between laughter, by Israeli terrorist. Where’s the humanity better yet where is God [sic].”

However, Elder of Ziyon discovered, the events shown in the video, which was posted on December 22, and was shared more than 1,000 times, actually took place in Algeria in April.

After Day of High Diplomatic Tension, Staff of Israeli Embassy in Jordan Returns Home Safely to Jewish State

On the community page, “Immortal Che Guevara” appeals to followers: “BE POLITE! And NO NASTY COMMENTS!! And NO PERSONAL INSULTS! And NO BLOCKING OR BANNING OF THE ADMINISTRATOR! And NO BLOCKING OR BANNING OF ANYONE!”

Elder of Ziyon refers to the use of the falsely attributed video as “Today’s Pallywood,” referring to the phenomenon of media distortion and manipulation, used by the Palestinians in their PR war against Israel in the international arena. The term became common, following the release of the 2005 documentary by Richard Landes called “Pallywood: According to Palestinian Sources.”

    Right now is spreading the video at https://www.facebook.com/WeDemandFreedom/ with the words “This is how the Israeli Zionist attack Palestinian children. You won’t see this in the mainstream media as they control most of it. Please watch and share.” They did it despite many people telling them it was not Israeli and posting the link to your article. This is a deliberate spreading of lies and hatred. It has already over 30.000 shares.

    In the states there is a saying that it’s not news when a dog bites a person, it’s only news when a person bites a dog. This article disproved that saying.

    Huh? He doesn’t look Jewish.

  • DockyWocky

    What’s a little fabrication among friends?

    While lying has always been a muzlim virtue, it appears that modern technology exposes it for what it is with some regularity.

  • David Marks

    What’s an Israeli canine doing in Algeria? Didn’t anyone check his visa? Doubtless, he went there just to bite Algerian children.

    How was the mutt identified as Israeli? By the scar from his Brit-milah?

    The haters of Jews are such wonderful storytellers, but their own embellishments often tend to cast suspicion upon the source and veracity of their extravagant claims.

    And anti-Semites already have so much innocent blood on their own hands from the dawn of history that it is sometimes difficult to take them seriously when they complain of bloodshed and brutality on the part of those whom they already hate for reasons that they cannot logically explain.
