Let’s start with folks who are working to get information out concerning the Palestinian strategy of using fake movies of “atrocities” committed by Israelis. Otherwise known as Pallywood productions. When given to media folks, here’s the response:
I made a documentary film called Pallywood, and tried to shop it around. I figured [the network] ABC would be interested in it as rivals of CBS whom we criticized [for bad coverage]. I was wrong. The guy at ABC said, “I don’t know how much appetite there is for something like this.”
Then I ran it by somebody else, who said, “We couldn’t broadcast this unless it were balanced.”
When I asked him what he meant by that, he said, “We’d have to have something showing how the Israelis also fake it.”
Uh – and if they don’t????
Now how about a disease that’s been named and around since the 19th century called “Blackwater”. However, to the media, this old disease got it’s names from “he U.S. mercenary company operating in Iraq.”

And back to Bloodthirsty Liberal for word on the UN.
The United Nations Human Rights Council on Wednesday appointed American Jewish law professor Richard A. Falk – who has compared Israel to the Nazis – as special investigator on Israeli actions in the territories for a six-year term.
Can’t they even pretend to act fairly???
Here is the rest of the citing used:
Falk, in his academic writing, has already stated that a Palestinian holocaust was in the making.
Yitzhak Levanon, ambassador to the United Nations in Geneva, spoke against Falk’s appointment in an address to the council on Wednesday.
“In a recent article, [Falk] stated that he did not think it to be “an irresponsible overstatement to associate the treatment of Palestinians with the criminalized Nazi record of collective atrocity,” Levanon said.
“He has taken part in a UN fact-finding mission which determined that suicide bombings were a valid method of ’struggle,’” Levanon said.
“He has disturbingly charged Israel with ‘genocidal tendencies,’ and accused it of trying to achieve security through ’state terrorism,’” Levanon said.
“Someone who has publicly and repeatedly stated such views cannot possibly be considered independent, impartial or objective,” Levanon said.
