How to know that a video is real?

Reader comment on item: The Case for Banning Burqas and Niqabs
in response to reader comment: Pallywood: This is how the Palestinian method of fraud works

Dear Dr Pipes, In the above message reader Emir posted a video that seemed to show how certain Palestinian interests produce fake videos to defame Israel. Emir's video may be authentic but, it may also have been produced by Israeli interests to defame (the so called) Palestinian Muslims. I am at a loss and I do not know how to absorb the information presented by Emir.

That said, we see lots of examples of Islamic selfishness, hypocrisy, and self-serving behaviors. Quran seems to be an operations manual about how to subjugate and invalidate everyone else. Emir's video only supports the thought that Muslims need to improve their behavior to coexist with everyone else in the 21st century.
