A video was released on YouTube, social media outlets and covered by several major news networks recently, reportedly showing a Syrian boy pretending to be shot by Islamic militants, then rescuing a Syrian girl pinned down by sniper fire.
Here is the ‘Original’ video, as aired:

Looks real, huh? Initially, I thought so to.. although, I had my doubts.
Then, we decided to investigate this story for accuracy and authenticity, prior to publishing, as we do with all of our stories on sharia unveiled.
It’s such a beautiful story, a part of me hoped it was real..
Unfortunately, it’s not.
We discovered that a Norwegian film director by the name of Lars Klevberg filmed this scene in Malta this past summer, with the intention of releasing it as being ‘REAL.’
Yes, the director from Oslo, Norway produced and released this FAKE video, with the intent of deceiving the world.
Here is the REAL unedited version:
I’m sure you can see the difference, to include hearing the directions being given to the actors.
Klevberg said, “The little boy and girl are professional actors from Malta. The voices in the background are Syrian refugees living in Malta.”
When asked if he had a problem producing a film that could potentially deceive millions of viewers around the world Klevberg replied..
‘..By publishing a clip that could appear to be authentic we hoped to take advantage of a tool that’s often used in war..’
I cannot help but wonder now..
Just how many ‘Klevberg Fakes’ are out there already?
In my opinion, Klevberg’s dishonesty has done tremendous damage and a great disservice to the plight of the Syrian children who are truly suffering, by bringing the authenticity of their stories into question.
