Israeli TikTok Creators Called Out for Mocking Palestinian Deaths

2 Mins read

On TikTok, Israeli people are making light of the Palestinian tragedy, which has angered netizens.

The videos of a new TikTok craze that are going viral have the internet inconsolable as the Israel-Hamas war approaches its 21st day. These movies purport to show Israeli civilians making fun of Palestinians.

This coincides with the Gaza Health Ministry, which is controlled by Hamas, releasing a list of over 7,000 Gazans names who it claims were killed by Israeli attacks.

People are shown making fun of many facets of Palestinian hardship in these films. The videos are widely accessible on all social media sites, however, we have not attached them here due to their sensitive nature.

The tiny children that participate in the teasing in these films are a concerning feature.

These individuals, who are seen wearing the traditional headgear known as a keffiyeh, which is used in many Middle Eastern countries, including Gaza, can be seen applying makeup to look injured and dusting themselves with talcum powder to simulate being coated in dust or debris. In several films, individuals are shown carrying dolls that are wrapped in fabric, making fun of accounts of mothers who have lost their children as a result of Israeli attacks.

Earlier last week, a video that made fun of Palestinian moms and featured an Israeli influencer named Eve Cohen, as reported by The Express Tribune, went viral. According to reports, Cohen in the video implied that women are fabricating their children’s deaths.

In other places, they mock Palestinians who have been without electricity and water for days by lighting candles at night or flaunting water.

As expected, the films that Cohen and others posted have provoked much criticism. People in the videos are drawing criticism from online users for what appears to be a callous disregard for the situation of Palestinians.

On X, a user questioned, “Is Palestinian genocide the new source of Israeli comedy or something?”

One commentator referred to the films as “an example of the anti-Palestinian racist conspiracy theory of ‘pallywood,’ where some Zionists argue that Palestinians manipulate media through ‘faking suffering’ – unsurprisingly, it’s also very similar to anti-Semitic tropes too.”

“Karma never fails, by the way!” was the warning one user gave alongside the revolting label for the films.

One user expressed concern over these films, including young children, writing: “Wtf??? These kids are learning how to be racist from a very young age!!!!!!!!!”

Some others submitted the verse “Galatians 6:7 (KJV) Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” Excerpted from the Bible.
