Report: AP Used Children to Stage Anti-Israel Photo Series

The Associated Press used Palestinian children to fake anti-Israel photos during its investigative series on last summer’s Hamas-Israel war, according to the New York Observer.

The series, released in February, portrayed Israel as “a serial violator of the norms of warfare, wantonly and indiscriminately slaughtering civilians,” according to the Observer’s article.

Among the AP’s many liberties, it described the dead father of a Palestinian boy as a “policeman,” when in fact he was a jihadi military battalion commander.

The Observer also says that the Associated Press got its war statistics from a couple of pro-Palestinian, anti-Israel groups that accuse Israel of being an “apartheid” state.
