Every Islamic attack has two prongs. The first is the violence and slaughter, the second is the propaganda of victimhood and charges of “islamophobia,” victimizing the victims over and over. Kill and cry. Whack and whine, all made possible by a vicious and dishonest leftist media.
Nowhere is this more prevalent than in the Islamic war on Israel widely known as “Pallywood.” The cynical exploitation of the death of little Layla al-Ghandour is a new low.

Mahmoud Omar, 20, told Israeli investigators that his 8-month-old cousin Layla al-Ghandour died of a heart disease, the same disease the baby’s brother died from a year earlier. He said he heard about his cousin’s death while protesting at the border in early May.

The New York Times reported last month “The Ghandour family acknowledged that Layla suffered from patent ductus arteriosus (PDA), a congenital heart disease commonly described as a hole in the heart.”…
