Palestinian News Agency Says Fictional TV Doctor Traveled to Gaza to Aid Protestors

The Internet roared with laughter Wednesday as the Palestinian Information Center was caught using a photo of a popular American medical TV drama to drum up support for Palestine.

In response to the ongoing protests taking place on the Gaza border in which Palestinian terrorists and activists are waging attacks on Israel, the Palestinian Information Center posted a picture of a blonde doctor on its Facebook page with the description: “A French doctor arrives in Gaza Strip to offer medical help to the wounded Palestinian protesters.”

The Palestinian Information Center describes itself on Facebook as a media and news company in Gaza City. The “news agency” has over half a million followers on Facebook to which it claimed the likeness of a fake TV doctor traveled to Gaza to support the Palestinian people.

However, it doesn’t require a double take to quickly realize that the blonde woman in the picture is not a French doctor with a liking for the Palestinian people, but is instead American actress Katherine Heigl, who is famous for playing Dr. Izzie Steven’s from Grey’s Anatomy, a popular American medical drama.

Adding insult to injury, the photo of the Grey’s Anatomy star wasn’t even altered to make the claim more believable. The Palestinian news agency didn’t bother cropping out Heigl’s character’s ID badge, which has the logo for Seattle Grace Hospital (SGH) visibly printed in bold font on the front of the badge. SGH is the hospital in Grey’s Anatomy in which the fictional TV show revolves around. 

A few people picked up on the outright dishonest Facebook post and within hours it was deleted. However, a screenshot was captured to forever display how the pro-terror Palestinian state media uses lies and deception to gain international support and aid through social media for the violence and terror Palestinians wage against Israel and the Jewish people on a daily basis.

After removing the story, the Palestinian news agency released a statement apologizing, and telling readers the outlet is “committed to truth and credible news.”

Following President Donald Trump’s decision and announcement to move the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, Palestinians have amped up their pro-Jihad rhetoric, calling for a six week long protest on the Gaza border, along with a “day of rage,” to protest Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, something every president dating back to at least Bill Clinton has falsely promised to do.

Palestinians have been staging anti-Trump, anti-American, and anti-Israel demonstrations since Trump’s historic Jerusalem announcement on December 6. The demonstrations are being held to “send a message to Israel” about what Palestinians are calling an unjust decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Protesters have been seen burning pictures of President Trump, arming children with weapons, and throwing tire bombs at Israeli soldiers, making it difficult to continue peace negotiations with the Palestinian Authority. Although Trump has been working towards drafting a peace proposal to address the crisis in Gaza, Palestinian representatives refused to participate in the peace talks.

The violent attacks, which have been proven to be in coordination with Hamas are expected to further escalate as May 14, approaches, when the official Jerusalem Embassy ceremony is scheduled to take place.
