Despite Video Evidence, Palestinians Spin Sunday’s Deadly Terror Stabbing

Fake news might be newly-coined term, but the Palestinian Authority has been doing it for years

Talk about fake news.

No one does it better than the Palestinian Authority-controlled media, which many have taken to calling "Pallywood."

Take for example Sunday's deadly terrorist stabbing in the Etzion Bloc of Jewish settlements south of Jerusalem.

A 17-year-old Palestinian Arab boy, Khalil Jabarin, stabbed 45-year-old Ari Fuld, an American-Israel resident of the area, in the back at the entrance of a local shopping mall. Fuld managed to chase down and neutralize Jabarin before he could stab anyone else.

The entire incident was recorded by security cameras and posted online by multiple sources.

The overwhelming evidence notwithstanding, the official Palestinian daily newspaper Al-Hayat Al-Jadida reported that Israeli "soldiers" had shot and arrested a "child" over "the claim he killed a settler."

Of course, as the video clearly shows, Jabarin was not shot by soldiers, but by Fuld and a second armed civilian. Furthermore, it is no "claim" that he stabbed and ultimately killed Fuld. It is an established fact. And, while Jabarin might technically be a "child," in this instance it would be more accurate to describe him as a "terrorist."
