I followed the #amina story from the beginning, secretly rooting A Gay Girl in Damascus who turned out to be a White Man in Georgia. Lots of smart people have written about this topic (see Micah Sifry, Andy Carvin, Jillian York, the Guardian’s Dan Gillmore, and Ethan Zuckerman). […]

It’s an Israeli hasbara outfit and has been exposed numerous times.

MacMaster fooled the media but eventually got caught. Someone needs to expose these other fakes as well

Norma Khouri comes to mind, or see Colville’s critique of Sir Richard Francis Burton’s “Perfumed Garden.” The fascinating thing is that every “hit fabrication” for more than a century became such a hit through its sexuality – one might indeed wonder why certain gullible Westerners audiences lap ‘this’ stuff up.
