People accept this kind of photo fakery quite readily. So why is it such a leap to consider other photos promoted by the media as fake, such as all the imagery from 9/11?
I still contend that the people of Israel and Palestine are the most psyOped group on the planet.
Jerusalem — One week into Israel’s war with Gaza this past summer, superstar Rihanna tweeted a photo of an Israeli boy and a Palestinian boy with their arms around each other facing away from the camera: “Let’s pray for peace and a swift end to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict!” she wrote. “Is there any hope?….”
The photo was posted as damage control after the pop star tweeted — and then eight minutes later deleted — the hashtag #FreePalestine. That initial tweet provoked an immediate barrage from Israel advocates on Twitter asking if she supported Hamas. It’s not clear to what degree the photo mollified her critics. But what Rihanna didn’t know was that the photo is actually a fake.
The boys in the picture aren’t an Israeli and a Palestinian, but two Israeli Jews.
