Just another #Pallywood moment - a fake "100 year old Palestinian grandpa"

A tweet:
Nope, this is Pallywood.

The photo came from an excellent photo essay I found on a Chinese language site, of many old people working and playing in rural Turkey. And a search of those photos confirmed that they were all from Turkey.

This is not an accident. Some Palestinians scour the web for photos that they can then claim comes from them. They then make up stories to fit the photos. Thousands of people believe them.

If the Palestinian narrative was so obviously righteous - why do they have to lie?

(Since I tweeted back the origin of the photo, the original tweet was deleted, with no acknowledgement that he was wrong.)
