It’s always easier when someone else is doing your job for you, isn’t it?
last week while having one of my regular BDS online rounds I came across an image which wasn’t only disturbing to look at, it felt fishy and wasn’t put up together very well.
On Hamde Abu Rahma’s, a very talented and appreciated, though an extremist, Palestinian photographer I found this:
I have written before about the comparison of Holocaust and the Israeli- Palestinian Conflict by BDS activist, but this one is preformed very poorly…
I served, like most Israeli adults, in the IDF. I was born and raised in Israel, and I have never, ever saw any national Campaign which was even slightly similar to the girl on the left.
Ever heard of Dr. Steel? I didn’t either, The guy is a unique-conceptual musician and performer who wears round an image of a doctor who intends to take over the world.
cool guy, with a very cool (and a very old- 2005) custom army called ‘Army of Toy Soldiers’, This army consists of three types of characters: Toy Soldiers, Nurses, and Toy Scouts.
take a guess which one of the 3 is our star shown up. RIGHT! she’s the Toy Scouts enlisting girl!
Now, you don’t think a BDSer will actually sit down for hours working his Photoshop and making the girl all Israeli, no, that is way too much work. Someone else has done it for him as well, the best they can do is changing the slogan on the bottom and putting two pictures side by side showing their regular method of lying and deceiving.
According to the Mizbala agency blog, a Jewish artist named Zeev Ben Yosef have made an Independent retro style campaign, showing the IDF in a cool-creative-vintage atmosphere and put it up on his FB page. again, the project is made by a guy on his spare time and was NOT produced or used by Israel officially (or unofficially for that matter).
I tried to contact Zeev but he did not respond until now.
Will BDS activist ever learn that people are not stupid? we have heard of Google Images, we will do research, and we will not believe every outraging Image shown to us like the sheep you work to lead to false conclusions…
