Welcome to Pallywood

Just a clip show of recent  lies, omissions and yes, Pallywood, from the usual suspects.

From the Quds News Network, which apparently doesnt have the budget to employ fact-checkers, a beatific smiling woman, with the claim the photo was taken in 1920, and that she is Palestinian.

Missed it by that much.... only 35 years.   The photo was taken in 1955, and is captioned "Jordanian Woman".  In 1955 the Jordanians were in control of the West Bank, and the Palestinians hadn't quite been created yet.

From another ersatz  "news site".   The environmentalists at Days of Palestine are reusing and recycling an old photo, claiming it was a destroyed fishing boat of the coast of Gaza.

Only it wasnt.

Presented here, on our nearly abandoned blog, for the algorithm. 

Maybe we'll be back and maybe we won't.  Is blogging still a thing, anyway?

Meet Iyad Al Dajani, vile antisemitic troll and director of Reconciliation, Conflict Transformation, and Peacebuilding Studies at the University of Jena

Iyad Doudi is the Facebook name of Iyad Al Dajani, a conspiracy theorist and anti-Israel pundit. Iyad Al Dajani frequently uses slurs  "apartheid"  "terrorist" "racist" "Nazi" " fascist" to describe Israeli policies such as ticketing illegally parked cars.

Iyad Al Dajani isn't above fabricating events to demonize the Jewish state. He has claimed the current bout of rioting on the Temple Mount are the result  of "terrorist Jews"  bringing lamb blood to Al Aqsa.


He has declared that the Israelis have elected "racist fascist" people to their Parliment and that they are implementing "Nazi laws" in Israel.   No, he isn't referring to the 17 Arab members of the Knesset.

He refers to the Ukrainian refugees fleeing genocidal atrocities  as "settlers".  (Are the Ukrainians in Poland also "settlers", I can't help but wonder?)

Iyad lies frequently, and is unhinged in his hyperbolic demonization of all things Israeli.

Iyad Al Dajani has blamed Israel after a misfired Hamas rocket took the life of Gaza fisherman.  Yet even Reuters got it right

Iyad has acussed the IDF of being in the real estate business.

What makes Iyad Al Dajani any different from the mass of Internet trolls we see online? Iyad AL Dajani is a professional.

Check out his linked in profile

(Dr.Phil.) Iyad AlDajani is the director of the doctoral school for Reconciliation, Conflict Transformation, and Peacebuilding Studies at the University of Jena. He the executive director for the Academic Alliance for Reconciliation in the Middle East and North Africa. He is a very innovative and creative researcher in the field of overcoming violence, religious peacemaking, and reconciliation through applied Internet communication technologies applied to Scientific Computing and Digital Research. He researches how to conduct digital scientific research with all its innovative methods and techniques in mostly concerned with applied Ethics in Digital Humanities. He has also become one of the essential activists working on that field.

The director of the doctoral school for Reconciliation, Conflict Transformation, and Peacebuilding Studies at the University of Jena is a vile hatemongering internet troll. The lying, ignorant dealer in antisemitic tropes markets himself as an "innovative and creative researcher in the field of overcoming violence, religious peacemaking".

Is there any wonder there is no peace?

Apartheid Fail in Israel

 In "apartheid" Israel, Beduoin soliders are willing to fight and die for their nation.

During the holy month of Ramadan,  the Beduoin soldiers of the IDF's Desert Reconnaissance Battalion - 585th Regiment break their fast with an IDF-provided Iftar.

This is the real Israel where diversity is cherished and embraced, not the cartoonish villian portrayed by Amnesty International or Human Rights Watch.

A major terror attack was thwarted in Israel

A major terror attack was thwarted in Israel, leaving 3 terrorists dead, and 4 Israelis hospitalized.

Early Saturday morning, information was received from Shabak regarding a terrorist cell traveling by car from Jenin to Tulkarem, with the intention of committing a large-scale terror attack

At 1:30 am, Israel's Yamam forces located the cell and attempted to carry out arrests.  The terrorists opened fire. Israeli forces returned fire, killing the three terrorists.  Guns and grenades were found in their car.

A will was also found in the car, encouraging the continuation of terror attacks against Israelis.

  The terrorists have since been identified as belonging to Islamic Jihad.

Several hours later, in a joint IDF and Shabak operation troops from the IDF's Duvdevan Unit and Shabak apprehended the last terrorist suspected of being a member of the cell.

Islamic Jihad has vowed revenge for the deaths.

Paterson, New Jersey's tone deaf City Council Resolution

During a week when the blood of 11 innocent Israelis flowed in the streets the Paterson New Jersey City Council has voted to change the name of part of its Main Street to "Palestine Boulevard"

The tone-deaf resolution was sponsored by Paterson Councilman Alaa Abdelaziz, Council President Maritza Davila and co-sponsored by Ruby N. Cotton.

Paterson has so many Palestinian residents that it is often referred to as  "Little Palestine".

Sadly, this is not the first time a street has been renamed following a Palestinian terror attack

Palestinian town names street for killer of 2 Israelis
PA Names Ramallah Street After Hamas Terror Mastermind

BDS Fails, Great and Small

Shhhh. Its a clip show, er, post.

Where are we after 21 years of BDS?

Well, there's this. According to a Gallup poll released this week as part of its annual World Affairs poll, Israel ranks seventh on list of countries rated favorably by Americans.

After multiple attempts to rid our port cities from the scurge of the Israel-affiliated Zim Shipping line, whats the net result of Block the Boat, and Block the Boat, the sequel?

ZIM Integrated Shipping Services Ltd  stock has risen 226.06% over the last 12 months, and the average rating from Wall Street analysts is a Buy.

* ZIM generated $10.7 billion in revenue and $4.64 billion in net profit, also growing shareholders' equity to $4.6 billion.

For 2021, Zim saw a 787% profit rise. 

Maybe that celebration party was a bit premature, eh, Lara?

But, But, But you say, Ben & Jerrys!  Thats was a BDS victory.  Right?  Right?  

Maybe its a Pyrrhic victory at best.   Since the Unilever owned business made the decision to stop selling ice cream over the Green line,  seven states have taken action against  the company.  Most recently, Colorado has joined New York, New Jersey, Illinois and Arizona divesting state pension funds from the company. Florida and Texas have also taken action against Ben & Jerry’s.   Other states are likely to take action as well.

Unilever’s stock has plunged in the last six months.  Its been estimated that the boycott  has led to a $26 billion loss.

Unilever- this is your stock on BDS.

Israel tech continues to thrive. Total funding in 2021 reached a new peak of $27 billion — more than doubling the amount raised in 2020. Israel consistently produces more "unicorns" per capita than any other nation, with 48 last year alone.  Israel's exports reached a record high of $140 billion in 2021, up 18% from last year.

Perhaps the biggest BDS fail are the Abraham accords, and the expansion of Israeli  diplomatic relations across the Middle East and North Africa. The BDS movements goal of isolating Israel has failed.  The expansion of social, political and economic ties across the region has laid the foundation for a real and lasting peace.

When a second tier liberal arts college removes Sabra hummus from the school cafeteria, or a B list performing artist cancels a trip to Israel, the BDS holes shout their  "victories" from the rooftops.   Its all they've got.    Remember the big picture.
