Now, you may be aware that there’s something called “Pallywood.”

That’s where Palestinians, a la Hollywood, make up a fake claim against the Israelis. Often, it involves showing fake victims of supposed Israeli oppression.

With that prologue, I’d like to bring you this story of the Al Jazeera journalist who was arrested by the Israelis yesterday.

Now, it’s not clear what she did preceding this video, but this video is from Al Jazeera. Apparently, they think it makes her look good. On the contrary, it shows them being pretty gentle, given that she repeatedly resists being arrested, pushing the officers and even hitting out at them, while screaming and telling them not to touch her.

“They kicked me inside the car in a very bad way … they were kicking me from everywhere,” she said.

As you can see from what the Al Jazeera video claims is the “full video,” it doesn’t appear to me that anyone “kicked” her to the wall. They did put her against the wall, as they tried to get her hands to get the cuffs on.

Budeiri, was held for four hours before she was released, claimed she had a broken hand. Her boss blamed the police.

“The soldiers who arrested me they know who I am, they called me by the my name Gevara Al Budairi Al Jazeera correspondent in the
