Israel Deletes Post Accusing Palestinians of Faking Their Deaths Using Crisis Actors
The Israeli government on Wednesday deleted a comically stupid post accusing Palestinians of faking their deaths using crisis actors.
Israel’s official social media account on X, formerly known as Twitter, published a video supposedly showing a Palestinian corpse in a body bag moving on Monday, along with the caption, “Reminder: The Gaza Ministry of Health=Hamas… Bodies can’t move their heads.”
The post received more than 4.5 million views, 27,000 likes, and 7,800 reposts before it was eventually deleted on Wednesday.

“The official government account for Israel once again spread the Pallywood conspiracy theory which claims Palestinians are crisis actors performing for videos & faking their death,” reacted journalist Matt Binder on X. “They deleted it now but it already had been viewed more than 4.5 million times in the past two days.”

Astonishingly, the blunder took place just days after the official Israeli social media account deleted another post which claimed Palestinian civilians were faking their injuries from Israeli airstrikes.
The same video was shared by AIPAC on Tuesday and is still up on their timeline:
It’s literally a two-and-a-half second clip of a Palestinian opening a bodybag that’s covered in bloodstains and the bodybag moves as he’s pulling it.

Gaza’s Ministry of Health reports that 8,796 Palestinians have been killed in Israel’s war on Gaza, including 3,648 children and 2,290 women.
All it takes is one look at the Times of Gaza’s X page to see an virtually endless stream of dead children massacred at Israel’s hands with American bombs.

Sen. Chris Van Hollen (D-MD) on Wednesday pointed out how Israel killed more children in one week than Russia killed in Ukraine during their 18 month war. In three weeks of bombings, Van Hollen noted, Israel killed six times as many kids as Russia.

While Israel’s hasbara shills are busy sharing videos accusing the Palestinians of faking their deaths, the IDF is going on CNN and admitting they bombed a refugee camp full of little kids to allegedly kill one Hamas member.
CNN’s Wolf Blitzer: You knew that there were innocent civilians in that refugee camp, right?
IDF spox: This is the tragedy of war. We told them to move south.
Blitzer: So you decided to drop the bomb anyway.
IDF spox: We’re doing everything we can to minimize civilian deaths. pic.twitter.com/oAtW7jV0pc

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu himself gave a speech labeling the Palestinians “Amalek” and the IDF’s oldest reservist is giving speeches to the troops encouraging them to kill Palestinian “families, mothers and children” and “erase the memory of them.”
Netanyahu declaring invasion: “You must remember what Amalek has done to you, says our Holy Bible”

The idea the Palestinians would have to fake their deaths while Israel is committing a massacring them by the thousands is not only completely idiotic but outright disgraceful.
