After Pallywood, comes Hezbollah-wood

When I posted the video "Pallywood" on this blog, it was kind of preemptive.
Few days later there was Qana: the blood and the pain of innocent made me felt terrible and I wanted to erase the "pallywood" post. People could think that I believed that carnage at Qana could be posed just like the scenes from the "Intifada" showed on that video.

But I was wrong: Qana turned out to be another round a big fight called "how to mislead-the-western-media" by the Arab militants.

While on monday (1 day later) newspapers screamed about those 58 civilians victims, on Wednesday they had to push down the numbers to 28.

In the mean time the blog EU Referendum showed precisely what was going on at Qana: Hezbollah militants (the mysterious green helmet guy on the photo) posing as "rescue team" for hours to western photographers using dead bodies of children like war throphy.

Ok. There were victims. But they have to blame it on Hezbollah. They used to hide weapons and rocket launchers on civilian areas.  That´s the real problem.

Another take:

Reuters released a photo from Lebanon that was "photoshoped" to amplify the signs (smoke) of an Israeli attack. You can read it here

"This Reuters photograph shows blatant evidence of manipulation. Notice the repeating patterns in the smoke; this is almost certainly caused by using the Photoshop "clone" tool to add more smoke to the image.

Smoke simply does not contain repeating symmetrical patterns like this, and you can see the repetition in both plumes of smoke. There's really no question about it. It's not only the plumes of smoke that were 'enhanced.' There are also cloned buildings."

Scene 3:

Lebanese Prime Minister Fouad Siniora says only one person was killed in an Israeli air strike on the southern border village of Houla, after earlier saying 40 people had lost their lives.

"The massacre in Houla, it turned out that there was one person killed," Mr Siniora said.


For those who thinks "Pallywood" could be a point-out-of-a-curve, all these stories prove that in this conflict between Israel and who wants to destroy her, one side uses lies, provocations and cowardness against their enemies. Even using their own people as cannon fodder.
And the western media? Swallows it as truth.
