Police: Palestinians tried to fabricate 'price tag' attack
An investigation into the suspected torching of Palestinian vehicles in the village of Kusra showed that the case was an attempt to fabricate a "price tag" act.
Earlier this month, Shai District Police began probing claims by Palestinians that settlers from the Esh Kodesh outpost had torched their cars but found there had been no arson.
Last week, residents from Kusra reported that settlers had infiltrated their village in the middle of the night, torched six cars and fled the scene. They produced an ID card to prove that settlers were behind the act.
It was later revealed that the card belonged to a soldier who had lost it in the village a few days earlier. When police arrived at the village to investigate the claims, they were pelted with stones and driven away.This is essentially Pallywood. It is the effort by Palestinian-Arabs to defame Palestinian-Jews in the court of international opinion. This kind of thing is part of the delegitmization effort in the Arab war against the Jews which is why I give virtually no credence to these horrendous reports about Jewish evil.
The go-to guy on Pallywood is Dr. Richard Landes of Boston University.
