Pam Geller, cofounder of Stop Islamization of America, an organization labeled a hate group by the U.S. civil rights organization the Southern Poverty Law Center, is transmitting hate against Palestinians by spreading misinformation regarding the number of children killed by Israel’s war on Gaza. She is suggesting Hamas is lying about the number of children killed by Israel. Geller instigated this misinformation on August 13, 2014 by uploading to her YouTube account a video of an Egyptian “die in” protest from the Egyptian Newspaper El Badil. In the video, children are covered in funeral shrouds and lying nearly motionless, except for a few kids who made motions. Geller titled the video “Islamic Funeral: I See Dead People … Move” and “Lights, camera, action for the gullible Western media.” The inference meant to be taken from her video is that Muslims and specifically Hamas, given the timing of the video, is faking the number of children killed by Israel. On the same day Pam Geller posted the video, Robert Spencer, the cofounder of Geller’s hate group Stop Islamization of America, embedded the video on his website Jihad Watch with the title “Video: Hamas funeral – The undead.” Robert Spencer went on to say “As Muhammad said, ‘War is deceit.’ And so here is more ‘Palestinian’ victimhood propaganda unmasked. Not that the international media and the world ‘human rights community’ will take any notice. Video thanks to Pamela Geller.” Geller and Spencer both hold themselves out to be experts on Islam, yet they could not distinguish between a “die in” protest in Egypt that included music and a traditional Islamic funeral. Either intentionally or recklessly, they did not do their due diligence to determine the origin of the video. The facts show that Geller and Spencer are either incompetent to speak on Islam or they are professional liars motivated by their unbridled hatred of Palestinians. The viral hate and misinformation continued to spread when Ronak Kallainpur from the Conservative Post published on August 19, 2014 the article titled “Gaza ‘Corpses’ Caught Moving When They Forget Cameras Are On Them.” Again, the publisher never fact checked the video, and in spite of various commenters criticizing the article and informing readers that the video is from a “die in” protest in Egypt and posting links to the original El Badil video, posted nearly a year before Operation Protective Edge even began, the Conservative Post never removed the article. It is likely the article was never removed because the video got over a million views in the ten days it was up and the article, which had over ten different advertisements embedded in the article, was making the Conservative Post too much pay-per-click money for honesty to stand in the way of profits. It is a strange irony of American culture that we can send satellites to discover the chemical composition of the planets, but the truth of our own planet is often concealed by those who are only motivated by hate and greed.
