Yesterday, following an illegal attempt by Palestinian Authority Arabs and foreign activists to erect an illegal outpost in Samaria’s Hemdat area, in the northern Jordan Valley, security personnel responded to the site with the intent to implement a standing Supreme Court decision.

At the site, Arabs and foreign activists violently responded, throwing stones and striking Israeli security forces. The security personnel contained the violence with riot dispersal means, seized the tents and detained three Palestinian Authority Arabs who were the main instigators.

Reports that foreign diplomats abused their diplomatic privileges are currently being reviewed and, if required, complaints will be filed with the relevant authorities.

Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesperson, Paul Hirschson, said a formal complaint might be filed with the French over the involvement of French diplomat, Marion Castaing. “If she did participate then a formal complaint will be filed because that is not the way diplomats behave,” he said.

Marion-Castaing1

This is what is being shown in the mainstream media: French diplomat Marion Castaing on the floor, with some media outlets questioning about the guns supposedly pointed at her by an Israeli police officer.

But this picture is being shown out of context, and the status of the gun supposedly pointed at her, purposefully misrepresented.

This is what the media fails to show:

The photo used to spread this misinformation was taken as a screenshot from a video with footage clearly showing that Marion Castaing was neither physically dragged to the floor nor had guns pointed at her. Also, the photo clearly shows that the officer is holding his gun by the magazine, nowhere near the rifle’s grip.

Many photos and videos have been manipulated to show Israel in a negative light. This is just another example of the length to which people will go to spread lies as part of the propaganda war against Israel.

Below is the edited “news” report, as reported by Iran’s state controlled TV.

  3. JubelFoster says:

    stscholasticas I posted the photo of the french lady punching a soldier and lying about guns pointed at her. She is a publicity hound.

  4. occpal says:

    stscholasticas oh right did #jewishpress see the video (http://t.co/iJDDCpcNIC) of the actual events before they wrote that ****ty article?

  5. stscholasticas says:

    JubelFoster I saw that..and I went to my programme and ran it..guess what..that picture of her doing that was ‘doctored’

  6. stscholasticas says:

  7. stscholasticas says:

  8. JubelFoster says:

  10. stscholasticas says:

    JubelFoster nah..cause Israel needs the money

  11. JubelFoster says:

    stscholasticas How would you know about that paper? You have never read it. Now you have learned something.

  12. JubelFoster says:

    stscholasticas Google has a huge research center in Israel. Warren Buffet invests in Israel startups. The boycott is a pathetic loser.

  13. stscholasticas says:

    JubelFoster I do not care if Israel is a pyramid structure with google

  14. JubelFoster says:

    stscholasticas Google and Buffet don’t invest in high risk places. That’s why they are in Israel and aren’t intimidated by BDS thugs.

  15. stscholasticas says:

    JubelFoster a thug? all because some of us have our eyes open..and want equal rights for all..you remind me of Thatcher…&how she treated

  16. stscholasticas says:

    JubelFoster Irish Catholics

  17. stscholasticas says:

    JubelFoster There is no human lifemore sacredthan another, just as no human life isqualitatively more significant than another.Pope Francis

  18. stscholasticas says:

    JubelFoster that is what I believe, which includes Pals

  19. JubelFoster says:

    stscholasticas why are you unwilling to condemn Assad? He gases 1000s of people and your response is to boycott Israel.

  20. stscholasticas says:

    JubelFoster who said i never condemned him? in your mind only

  21. stscholasticas says:

    JubelFoster another thing..when my daughter was young..i was a single mum..worked and raised her…but you dont get that..you assumed

  22. JubelFoster says:

    stscholasticas so you will be marching at the Syrian embassy to protest Assad and demanding stores not sell any products? #progress

  23. stscholasticas says:

    JubelFoster I am too busy to march for anything…i have deadline, and my editor would be a bit angry if I do not fulfil it

  24. stscholasticas says:

    JubelFoster oh but you didnt know..archaeologists..write and write and write

  25. JubelFoster says:

    stscholasticas I know all about Yigal Yadin, the most successful archaeologist ever. His career was military but he still did archaeology.

  26. stscholasticas says:

    JubelFoster hardly..a lot of errors..and been corrected with modern archaeology methods…see history of archaeology to understand

  27. stscholasticas says:

    JubelFoster also…look up… harris matrix… a tool of sorts that we use ( and hard to learn at first)

  28. JubelFoster says:

    stscholasticas I climbed to the top so I saw with my own eyes. Yadin did all this and was chief of staff in the army too.

  29. stscholasticas says:

    JubelFoster THE most important factor for a professional archaeologist is to remain neutral…not to prove that your people are this orthat

  30. stscholasticas says:

    JubelFoster he violated that…so a lot of his archaeology..and the interpretation has been redone.
