The Palestinian Authority “Pallywood” movie industry has come up with a spectacular comparison of the 9/11 terrorist attack on the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center with the Israeli Air Force’s bombing of a 12-story building housing a Hamas command center.
The Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) translated with English subtitle and published the 20-second video on Monday with the words “Same Terror” emblazoned on the screen as the building in New York and Gaza, followed by billowing smoke
The production is a brilliant piece of propaganda and is convincing to the Palestinian Authority population that knows only what the PA media feeds it.
The video comparison would make anyone who does not know anything about 9/11 that the two bombings really are the “same terror.”
Thirteen years of media messages, that the 9/11 never happened or that the Jews engineered it, have educated a new generation of Arabs to hate Israel and Jews, unlike the fragile co-existence that nurtured Israeli-Arab relations in Judea, Gaza and Samaria from the Six-Day War until the late 1980s, when, Yasser Arafat popularized terror.
The video, of course, does not mention that the IDF warned civilians in the building in the Gaza to evacuate and that no was killed. Approximately two dozen people were wounded. The film also did not tell viewers that nearly 3,000 people were killed in the Al Qaeda aerial attacks.
This is the atmosphere in which U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry wants to re-start peace talks, which presumably involve a Palestinian Authority that is composed of Hamas and the rival Fatah faction, headed by Mahmoud Abbas.
