Two weeks ago, Palestinian and anti-Israel media were filled with reports like this one:

A Palestinian worker died Sunday after suffocating from tear gas when the Israeli army attacked workers near the occupied West Bank city of Tulkarem.

50-year-old Fouad Joudeh from the city of Nabulus along with other workers were trying to pass through a separation fence in the village of Faroun to reach their jobs in Jaffa.

Fouad attempted to reach his workplace after more than 20 days of unemployment since Israel imposed a new lockdown as a protective measure to control the spread of COVID-19.

Doctors at Rafidia Hospital in Nablus said the autopsy confirmed that Fouad died as a result of inhaling large amounts of toxic tear gas and heart failure.
The story is strange. Unless someone has a previous medical condition, it is extraordinarily rare for people to die from tear gas inhalation - and next to impossible for this to happen outdoors.

Apparently, Joudeh did not die from anything that Israel did, despite what the Rafidia Hospital says. 

The death is not mentioned by the Palestinian Center for Human Rights, which counts every Palestinian death that can be blamed on Israel.

It is not mentioned by the Al Mezan Center for Human Rights.

It is not mentioned by the UN's OCHA-OPT unit, which likewise keeps a running count of all Palestinian casualties by Israel, both deaths and injuries.

B'Tselem likewise does not have this case in their own database of all Palestinian casualties.

If none of these groups who have every incentive to count all Palestinians killed by Israel list Joudeh, you can be certain that Joudeh was not killed by Israel. He probably had a heart attack and his relatives are making up a story about tear gas killing him, perhaps to get benefits due to the family of "martyrs."

Note that the Rafidia hospital the was reported to say he was killed by tear gas is a Palestinian government hospital. Assuming the report is correct, it means one cannot trust Palestinians to report accurate death information when they can make Israel look bad.

Just another Palestinian lie. 

But this is important for another reason. The four NGOs listed must have researched the circumstances of the death of Fouad Joudeh before determining that he was not killed by Israel. This means that they are aware of the lie. How many other times has the media blindly reported lies falsely blaming Israel for killing Palestinians? They know the answer - but they will never publish it, because they have a vested interest in keeping the world ignorant to the extent of the mendacity of the Palestinian authorities and official media. 

We know about some of these cases, but only the NGOs attacking Israel know the true extent of the deceit of the Palestinians. Only they know how little one can trust official Palestinian news and government statements. But these organizations, which are supposedly founded on moral principles and fact checking, won't ever report on these lies - because they support the goals of those lies.
