Last week I noted that the Palestinian Authority pays Ghassan Daghlas to lie about Jewish settlers.
He is still going strong, with more allegations that are, as usual, not corroborated with a single photo.
Daghlas claimed that Jewish settlers tried to burn down an Arab house southeast of Taybeh, on Saturday morning.
Saturday is of course the Sabbath and no religious Jew would light a fire then, let alone travel to an Arab village.
Daghlas added a new wrinkle on the story. He claims that the liquid used in the firebomb only intensified when villagers tried to pour water onto it. Jewish chemists are presumably working on better firebomb materials right now.
Another version of Daghlas' story says that this incident happened Friday night - still the Sabbath - and that on Saturday morning the settlers burned an olive tree grove, again with no corroboration.
But these stories are carried widely in Arabic media.
