You’d be hard pressed to find an example of terror in world – outside of Israel – where mainstream media outlets prioritize the fate of the perpetrators over that of their victims.
Today, CST published its 2014 Antisemitic Incidents Report. The report “examines the use of antisemitic language and images in…politics and media, including social media” and “covers public discussion and debate about antisemitism, including condemnations of […]
On Nov. 24th, we posted about an ITV News segment on the latest Palestinian stabbing attack, We noted that the report failed to explain that the number they cited of Palestinians killed since Oct. 1 includes includes those involved in terror attacks.
Yesterday, we posted about an inaccurate report on the website of Europe’s most watched news channel, EuroNews. The headline and opening passage both erroneously claimed that US Secretary of State John Kerry condemned “violence between Israelis and Palestinians”, when in fact he specificallly condemned Palestinian terror attacks against Israelis.
Echoing the headline, the opening passage of the article claimed that the US Secretary of State denounced the recent “spate of violence between Israelis and Palestinians” as “acts of terrorism” at a press conference in Jerusalem following his meeting with Israel’s prime minister. However, as multiple media reports made clear, Kerry was specifically denouncing “Palestinian” violence, not “violence between Israelis and Palestinians” – a fact noted by my colleague Gidon Shaviv in the following Tweet:
Contrary to the ubiquitous Palestinian propaganda during the latest surge in violence, Israeli security personnel do not shoot Palestinians merely because they have a hunch they may be carrying a weapon. They are shot after they have attacked or attempted to attack Israeli civilians and soldiers.
Palestinian propaganda since the latest wave of terror attacks against Israeli Jews has been conspiratorial in nature, suggesting that innocent Palestinians have been “executed” by police, who then plant knives at the scene to cover up their crimes. Though most mainstream media outlets haven’t accepted this narrative, it is becoming common to see report which give credibility to Palestinian claims that Israeli police and security personnel have been using ‘excessive force’ when responding to such terror attacks.

ISIS’s attacks are fueled by a radical, violent and intolerant religious ideology which is impervious to reason, persuasion or self-interest. They certainly don’t desire “peace” and justice in the Middle East. Their goal is quite clear: re-establishing an Islamic Caliphate in the Middle East ruled by Sharia and, ultimately, conquest of the entire world.
Either way, Bell’s cartoon certainly seems to be echoing frequent Palestinian efforts to present themselves as the direct descendents of Jesus and Mary. Unlike the ‘adoration’ for baby Jesus by the kings, Johnson crudely tramples on the sanctity of the virgin birth.
The Guardian’s Jerusalem correspondent, Peter Beaumont, pulled off quite a feat in a Nov. 13th report on ‘violence in the region’: he managed to report on two separate Palestinian terror attacks in […]
Journalists increasingly insists that their role is not to report fairly and accurately irrespective of their personal political beliefs, but rather to ‘comfort the afflicted and afflict the powerful’ – in a sense, showing solidarity […]

The fact that the British tabloid chose that particular image to illustrate the putative threats faced by British tourists visiting Israel once again demonstrates the willingness of editors to seize upon and exploit even the flimsiest evidence of alleged Israeli villainy.
