    Pallywood is the concept that images or videos are either staged or mislabeled to draw people to the Palestinian side of the conflict. They show fake things to sell the idea of oppression and people who aren't aware of what they are truly seeing get mad at Israel because what they perceive is rather awful.

    JAY gives an example, one I haven't heard before but it still illustrates the concept. Another famous one is a funeral procession where the "corpse" fell off the bier and climbed back on.

    Keep in mind that real life images can be used for Pallywood as well. I've come across some images used here meant to illustrate the "Israeli brutality" but in reality take place in Syria. Another more recent example may be the idea that a NBC reporter, known for pro-Palestinian sympathies, covered a recent attack where he just happened to be in the right place at the right time. He said that he didn't see a knife and tried to play the Palestinian off as a victim. While it is possible he didn't understand what was happening, the fact is that it was rather apparent to the other news reporters given the visibility of a weapon and the repeated Israeli warnings heard.

    Unfortunately, there are TONS of other examples I could give, both in terms of staged imagery or mislabeled tragedy. Pallywood is rather active in unfairly demonizing Israel.

    Pallywood is just the Palestinian and pro Palestinians "propaganda industry" of editing pictures and video in order to show them in the media and disgrace Israel in the world eyes.

    The videos and pictures are mostly faked , edited or taken out of context to always show Israel in a bad light.
