When lying is accepted as a SOP, everything is easy.

Reader comment on item: Columbia University Celebrates Edward Said
in response to reader comment: Pallywood / fake Palestinian victims: Detained, "passed out" and immediately laughing in front of the police | This is what Arab propaganda looks like in Jerusalem

Dear Dr Pipes,
Reader Nir mentioned an incidence where a woman in a Muslim section of Israel (aka Palestine) faked victimhood at the hands of Israeli Police. She first pretended to have fainted but shortly there after was was found to be laughing and enjoying herself. Nir called the woman's acting "Pallywood".

I am not surprised. For Muslims lying for the sake of Islam is a standard operating procedure. Lying is routinely done by Muslims. And when lying is a SOP, little bit of pretended victimhood is part of the territory.

The most irritating example of Islamic lies occurs when Muslims in free countries vouch for and demand more rights for themselves based on the cultures/values/constitutions of the free countries, knowing fully well that Islam is in direct contradiction to those values, cultures, and constitutions. It is all part of the Islamic game and tactic. Such is life.
