Artwork that Rosie O’Donnell is selling on her website, purporting to show a Palestinian child killed by Israeli bombs, was actually taken in Syria.

“The View” co-host designed and drew the anti-Israel collages that she is selling for $20, with proceeds going to charitable arts education causes, The Blaze reported.

The “Bombs Away” piece includes a description from Ms. O’Donnell that says, “This was made the day Israel began bombing Gaza. This man carries a baby about the same age as the one I sit next to, watching Frozen. July 8, 2014.”

Only problem is the photo of the man and the wounded child was taken in Aleppo, Syria, five months earlier by Getty Images photographer Khaled Khatib.

The photo appears on another piece, embossed with the words “stop and think” and the quote, “Israel and Gaza: The death of innocent children never fails to kill a part of my soul.”

After being questioned on Twitter, Rosie/status/543047286612578304” target=”_blank”>Ms. O’Donnell explained that the location of the photo is irrelevant.

“[I] made it the day Israel started bombing gaza - the image of a dead child - next to the image of my own - is the point,” she said.
