PA Misrepresents Photos Of Holocaust Victims — Again


Official Palestinian Authority TV last month broadcast pictures of bodies of Holocaust victims in a Nazi concentration camp, presenting them as pictures of Arabs killed by Jews in the village of Deir Yassin in 1948.

Two other pictures, which P.A. TV also claimed were of Arabs killed in 1948 by Jews, were actually pictures of the the Sabra and Shatila massacre of Palestinians by Christian Phalangists in Lebanon in 1982.

As Palestinian Media Watch has documented, the presentation of Holocaust victims as Arab victims of Israel is a recurring practice of official P.A. TV, which in 2018 presented these same photos from Sabra and Shatila as being from Deir Yassin.

The complete story can be read on the PMW website.




  1. Its time the world was told the truth about Deir Yassin. Even the Palestinians admit that their false information was a mistake.
    “Like many of the claims, this was a deliberate propaganda ploy, but one that backfired. Hazam Nusseibi, who worked for the Palestine Broadcasting Service in 1948, admitted being told by Hussein Khalidi, a Palestinian Arab leader, to fabricate the atrocity claims. Abu Mahmud, a Deir Yassin resident in 1948 told Khalidi “there was no rape,” but Khalidi replied, “We have to say this, so the Arab armies will come to liberate Palestine from the Jews.” Nusseibeh told the BBC 50 years later, “This was our biggest mistake. We did not realize how our people would react. As soon as they heard that women had been raped at Deir Yassin, Palestinians fled in terror.”
