This is the game perfected in the Middle East. This is Pallywood, or how to manipulate a media already hungry for sensation, a media already adept at twisting the truth.

Neither this country nor any of our European allies have made any significant intervention in Syria’s civil war. So why should Hungarians and Slovakians, Austrians and Poles be expected to bear such a significant responsibility for this?
