Honest Reporting s'en souvient:
of 12-year-old Gazan Mohammed al-Dura crouching next to his father
behind a barrel, caught in the crossfire, became the defining image of
the Second Intifada.
Israel was accused of killing al-Dura based on the heavily edited
footage of a Palestinian cameraman working for France 2 TV and its
reporter Charles Enderlin.
But what really happened? Our video below is as relevant today as it
was when we first posted it in 2008. It 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 has since occurred on numerous occasions including Israel’s
military operations in Gaza.
In the years following this video, more investigation has been carried out
at the initiation of the Israeli government which published a detailed
report in May 2013, which can be read or downloaded in full below.
