Pallywood is alive and kicking Jews
Sounds terrible, no? On Yom Kippur, “Dozens of Israeli settlers dance, sing, and perform Talmudic rituals at the historic Bab al-Rahma cemetery, located just outside Jerusalem’s Al-Aqsa Mosque eastern wall, today. The settlers could be also seen trampling on graves of Muslims.” screams X.
A few problems with this fake news:
- At the end of this clip, you see that the youths are gestured to move on, away from the graves, and they do so immediately.
- These were just young Jews, not “Israeli settlers.”
- They did not “perform Talmudic rituals.” Rather, they sang a Yom Kippur plea that is sung in the two clips here, asking G^d for Mercy.
The words they sang so passionately in translation are:
Angels of mercies, put our mercies
Before the Lord of mercies
Propagators of prayer, make our prayer heard
Before Hearer of prayer
Propagators of cries, make our cry heard
Before Hearer of cries
Presenters of tears, put our tears
Before King Who gives in to those in tears
Do your best and lift up prayer
Lift up prayer and supplication
Before King high and exalted
King high and exalted.
Not your average battle cry, is it?
From Wikipedia (Hebrew): The award-winning song was composed by Chaim Bennett for a Vizhnitz Hassidim choir in preparation for the Days of Forgiveness and first released in 1992 by Shlomo Cohen. Since, it has been performed by Yitzhak Meir, Avraham Fried, Mordechai Ben-David, Yonatan Sheinfeld, Motti Steinmetz, Yaakov Shawaki, Shmuel Brunner, and others.
Antisemitic media immediately blasted this horrific ‘assault’ around the world to billions of naïve Muslims bound to believe it. Only one of the English media reported and corrected part of this fake news. The other Israeli outlets failed to weigh in on this anti-Jewish global slander.
Analysis: Most anti-Israel lies are made not in a vacuum but to counter real attacks on Jews. 1.5M Jewish children were murdered in the Holocaust. So, claim that IDF soldiers are baby killers. Europe never acknowledged Jews as a People. So, claim that Jews don’t acknowledge the Palestinian People (of whom Arafat said it doesn’t exist, which he could know – he was born in Cairo). Where all Jews are already gone, Antisemites often attack Jewish graveyards. So, claim that Jews desecrate Muslim graves.
