Palestinian myth-making Before a crowd of 10s of thousands of worshippers, Jerusalem mufti Ikrima Sabri told a made-up story about the IDF forcing Muslims at a checkpoint to violate their Ramadan fast. (report).

Meanwhile, Jordanian Prime Minister Ali Abu-Ragheb is appearing to take seriously a story that is often repeated in the Arab world - that Israel is planning a massive expulsion of Palestinians into Jordan (report).

My opinion is that these stories are actually a kind of reflection of what the Arabs would be doing to us if the tables were turned.
