PA Holocaust abuse: Photo of concentration camp victims misrepresented as Arab victims of Jews
The actual picture, which was taken right after liberation of the concentration camp by the American army, was carefully distorted by PA TV so that the images of the corpses in the striped concentration camp uniforms, the American soldiers, and the concentration camp buildings were not seen. The following caption was added by PA TV: “When they killed and mutilated the bodies of 250 women, children and elderly residents.”

The PA TV video, which was broadcast this week on the anniversary of the Deir Yassin battle, also included a photo (right) of victims of the massacre at the 1982 Sabra and Shatila refugee camp by Christian Lebanese, which was likewise misrepresented as showing Arabs who were killed by Jews.

as victims at Deir Yassin
The third lie in the PA TV video, was the following text printed on the screen under the photo: "And they [the Jews] burned the women and children in the village's oven."
The PA TV video opens with the screen with the words:
PMW Note About Deir Yassin:
Jewish fighters from the Irgun and Lehi military groups, part of the forces opening the blockaded road to Jerusalem, attacked the Arab village of Deir Yassin on April 9, 1948. When the battle was over, the village had fallen and in addition to the Arab fighters killed, 107 civilians were also killed. Narratives differ as to whether the civilians were killed in the crossfires or were intentionally murdered by the Irgun and Lehi fighters.
