Watchdog: Palestinian ‘Fauxtographs’ Submitted to World Health Organization Ahead of Damning Anti-Israel Resolution ‘Highlight Total Lack of Credibility’

Falsified photos used in the Palestinian Authority report submitted to the World Health Organization ahead of its anti-Israel resolution last week “highlight the submission’s total lack of credibility,” a US-based watchdog blogged on Sunday.

According to “Snapshots,” the blog of the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America (CAMERA), in preparation for WHO’s publication of the decision, the PA Ministry of Health provided faux pictorial “evidence” of Israeli health violations against Palestinians.

For example, CAMERA cited, a photo “meant to illustrate ‘Settlers attacking a Palestinian child while being observed by Israeli occupation forces’ — as noted by blogger Israellycool two years ago when this picture first started to appear on social media — is a Getty Images picture showing the eviction of Israeli settlers. The scene does not at all involve Palestinians.”

Another picture — with the caption: “Photograph taken during the Israeli war on Gaza, 2014” – is actually a Photoshop makeover, exposed as a hoax by Israellycool at the time, of a photo published on a blog discussing how Israel might attack Iran’s nuclear reactors. According to CAMERA, “Editors of the ‘Gaza’ version erased the mountains and the building which simply don’t exist in Gaza.”

Two more pictures ostensibly about Operation Protective Edge submitted by the PA Health Ministry and highlighted by CAMERA were 1) a photo taken from Lebanon, and 2) a photo from Gaza, but from 2012.

Two photos purposely mis-attributed to Operation Protective Edge. The first was taken in Lebanon, the second in Gaza in 2012.

Photos depicting the current wave of Palestinian terrorism, said CAMERA, are also utterly misleading:

The Palestinian “girl killed in cold blood” is Yasmin Tamimi. Tamimi is not, apparently, a “girl,” nor is it even clear that she is dead. The Palestinian Center for Human Rights identifies her as 20 years old and does not claim that she was killed. And B’Tselem does not include her in its list of Palestinian casualties. According to Israeli reports, after her engagement to be married was called off, Tamimi attempted to stab an Israeli policeman, and Israeli forces fired on her, seriously wounding her. She survived, and was transported to Shaarei Tzedek hospital.

While searches did not reveal the source for the picture on the left, the image does date back as far as 2009.

The Palestinian "girl killed in cold blood" is Yasmin Tamimi. Tamimi is not, apparently, a "girl," nor is it even clear that she is dead.

As The Algemeiner reported on Thursday, the WHO resolution – co-sponsored by the Arab Group and the Palestinian delegation to the UN — accused Israel of violating the “mental, physical and environmental health” of the Palestinians. The motion, which received support from France, Germany, the UK and various other EU states, was passed during WHO’s annual assembly on Wednesday. The US and Canadian delegations both voiced their strong objections to the resolution.

According to the Geneva-based watchdog group UN Watch, no resolutions were passed against any other country. The assembly did not address other major health crises, such as the bombing of hospitals in Syria by pro-regime and Russian warplanes, or the Saudi-led bombing and blockade in Yemen, which is denying millions access to food and water.

    These fauxtographs submitted by the “palestinians” is VERY EMBLEMATIC of the whole circus about this conflict in which arabs lies are PROVOKED BY ISRAEL S POLITICAL UTTER STUPIDITY AND LACK OF POLITICAL KNOWLEDGE, INTELLIGENCE,KNOW HOW OR SIMPLY WISENESS. A photo of IDF expelling …jews is turned against Israel! Not only Israel’s Policy weakens its own geo political position but it weakens still more,twice thru arab lies! How can such a Policy prevail? In other words arabs lie, Israel …withdraws. Who wins? At this point of stupidity we are forced to say Israel deserves to be the loser!

    • Robert Davis

      PS This is the summit of Israel’s political INEPCY. We don’t even have the right to complain about antisemitism which is a product manufactured by…Israel!

  • Steve Firestone

    As the world has been informed many times the claims of atrocities are uniformly false and the UN is an Arab propaganda factory. The EU is the most gullible group of fools since Neville Chamberlain brought back Hitlers promise not to invade Poland.

    • Barry

      THe EU is not gullible. It is doing this on purpose to further its agenda. It grabs anything to discredit Israel.

  • Judith Levine

    Yasmin Tamimi is a member of the Clan Tamimi, whose best know member is Shirley Temper. The clan members regularly die for the camera, sometimes more than once a day. One son was pictured with an arm supposedly broken by an IDF member, but later that day he was shown having another injury and the cast was on his other arm. Shirley has made lots of videos and was one of the darlings of the PA. Seems the Palestinians have a real problem with providing factual photos.
