Palestine TV This is hilarious. The Palestinians have started a television newscast where they try to translate their distinctive style of propaganda into Hebrew:

"Palestinian territories are referred to as "districts of the homeland." Palestinian gunmen killed by Israeli forces are called "heroes" even when they were attacking civilians.The program has coined a new word, "shaheedim," using the Arabic word for martyr and adding a Hebrew suffix to describe those killed by Israel."

The Associated Press just can't not take this seriously though, since they start off by describing the telecasts as an alternative to the Israeli media. And it's only at the end of the dispatch that the AP tells you that the PA broadcasts include fabricated reports of supposed Israeli cruelty.
