Unmasking the Propaganda

I read about this on Israel Matzav and I urge you to go to his site for the whole story.  I had heard of the movie called Miral, and that it was actually based on a true (propagandized) story, directed (of course) by a Jew. The movie tells the story of Hind Husseini's effort to establish an orphanage in Jerusalem after the 1948 partition of Palestine which created the state of Israel.

What Israel Matzav pointed out and what caught my attention is the name Hind Husseini. Yes, it is the same last name of Haj al-Amin al-Husseini, the Mufti of Jerusalem and a collaborator with Hitler--she is his sister--the movie does not go into that little matter. The original children in the orphanage were survivors of what Wikipedia calls the Deir Yassin massacre. (There never was a massacre). At a later date I will write some more on this.

The orphanage ended up in Sheikh Jarrah, directly across from what was until 2002 the Palestinian headquarters in Jerusalem known as Orient House--not far from the Shepherd's Hotel. As Israel Matsav points out "This entire movie is one massive slander against Israel..."

You can be sure it will be a big success--because, after all, who needs truth?
