2. Video – al-Dura: What Really HappenedJanuary 3, 2013 12:27 by Alex Margolin
Our oldest video, originally posted five years ago as background on the controversial al-Dura case, drew more viewers in 2012 than almost everything we did last year. Of course, it’s as relevant today as it was when we first made it.
The video chronicles the beginning of “Pallywood” – Palestinian efforts to stage false footage for broadcast in the mainstream news. It’s hard to miss the similarities between false footage that’s shown being filmed in 2000 as the Second Intifada was getting started and what was happening in 2012 during Operation Pillar of Defense.
