‘It’s not a joke’: How tourists react to ‘fake news’
A park visitor in Jordan told The Jerusalem Mail how she felt “sad” when she was “misinterpreted” by a Palestinian park ranger after being warned that a vehicle was parked illegally near a water source.
“I was very nervous.
When I saw the man come, I felt very sad because I had to leave,” Rania told The Mail.
“He was saying something like ‘it’s not safe for you to be there’ because there were many tourists here.”
Rania added that she then took photos of the driver and posted them on social media, but the story did not spread far enough for the man to be arrested.
“When I was in the car, I saw a Palestinian man and I saw him look very suspicious.
I said ‘are you the driver?’
He said ‘yes, it’s me’ and I said, ‘what is your name?’
He replied ‘Yousef,’ and I told him I’m a photographer,” she told The News Line.
Rania said she had not seen her photo posted online until the next day, but was still “sick” of the man.
“This is not the first time I have seen the park ranger in the park,” Rana added.
‘It hurts like hell’ In Israel, a similar incident happened on April 15, when a woman in the West Bank city of Nablus was arrested by the Israeli police after she drove a car through a “sensitive” area of the Old City. “
After I took the photos, I didn’t think that I would see anything in the news, but I saw it all.”
‘It hurts like hell’ In Israel, a similar incident happened on April 15, when a woman in the West Bank city of Nablus was arrested by the Israeli police after she drove a car through a “sensitive” area of the Old City.
Police told local media that the woman was accused of “spreading lies about Israeli construction.”
“The driver of the vehicle tried to run the vehicle through the Old city and hit a pedestrian and several people,” Israeli police spokesperson Micky Rosenfeld said at the time.
“The woman was detained for questioning.”
Rana said that her initial reaction to the incident was “very sad.”
“It hurts very bad,” she said.
“They are putting up with this for a long time, but they don’t want to take responsibility for what they are doing.” “
Rani also shared a photo of a Palestinian woman she was driving past on the way home on the same day. “

Rani also shared a photo of a Palestinian woman she was driving past on the way home on the same day.
She wrote that she saw her vehicle “completely damaged” and was “struck by tears” as she passed.
Rani said that the photo was taken during her drive through the city, and that she was not the driver of any vehicle.
“She is a young woman, she is young, and she is driving on the right side,” she wrote.
“No one will know that she is the driver.”
In response to the photo, Rani wrote on Instagram: “It feels very sad, I think we all do.
But we have to accept it.
We are living in the middle of a war, and we have nothing to do with it.
But I want to be a good driver.
I don’t care if it hurts.”
According to The Jerusalem District Police, the woman in question was arrested after the incident.
The Israeli police did not immediately respond to The Mail’s request for comment.
