One of your more hilariously inept Pallywood propaganda ploys.
***Update from LGF.*** *** Here we go again. You’ll all remember how the MSM brought us the first Fauxtography-fest in the summer of 2006.

Koran as stage prop!
Doubting Thomas, part II.
Adobe gets in on the act to help prevent another Adnan Hajj-gate. Of course, all the best software in the world won’t solve propaganda problems like this one. But every bit counts. *** Allah is reminded of the V-chip and other technological band-aid non-solutions. Yep, he’s got a point.
Busted–at LGF, of course.

***Update 805pm: reax from readers posted below *** You all remember the ambulances in Qana that were supposedly targeted by Israel last summer. And you all remember Zombietime’s thorough, devastating analysis arguing that the alleged attacks probably never happened.

What a waste of time and space Michael Kinsley’s latest piece of superficial snark is: Social networking sites such as MySpace (for which Rupert Murdoch paid $580 million last year) are vast celebrations of solipsism. “My interests are music, girls, sports, clothes, cars and oo did i forget to mention girls,” writes Lex, a featured […]
