PA TV: Israeli bombing of building in Gaza was "terror" equal to 9/11

PA TV produced a short video with a split screen showing one of the hijacked planes hitting the Twin Towers in 2001 opposite Israel's bombing of a 12-story building in Gaza from which Hamas terrorists operated. PA TV News aired this video in several news reports between Aug. 24-26. As the buildings collapse, the words "Same Terror" appear on the screen.

What PA TV chose to hide from its viewers were the following facts:

  • The building in Gaza housed an operations room of Hamas terrorists and was therefore a military target.

The World Trade Center housed no terrorists and was a deliberate attack on civilians.

  • Before the attack in Gaza, Israel warned all the civilians in the building to evacuate. Nobody was killed in the attack.

There was no warning before the World Trade Center attack. Close to 3,000 innocent civilians were murdered.

This filler was broadcast once on Aug. 23, 19 times on Aug. 24, and twice on Aug. 26, 2014.
