The letter that went into the Guardian this week was unusual in having almost nobody sign it who is a household name. The letter was a demand from a group of “artists, producers and concerned citizens,” who, it said, “are disappointed and saddened to see that Curzon, Odeon, Bafta and other cinemas are hosting the London Israeli Film and Television Festival.”

The Guardian’s Jerusalem correspondent Peter Beaumont has once again uncritically featured a report by the radical European-funded NGO Breaking the Silence (Bts). Beaumont’s May 3rd story devotes 2100 words to a new BtS report consisting of anonymous […]
In order to help contextualize The Guardian’s fixation on Mordechai Vanunu, let’s briefly look at the media group’s reports on another Westerner convicted of revealing classified nuclear secrets. In February 2001 Robert Philip Hanssen was arrested […]

In fairness, The Guardian has published a few morally clear articles, op-eds and editorials on the recent increase of antisemitism in Europe and the UK. However, a Jan. 19th Guardian op-ed by David […]
