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.
I’m sure there are many British Muslims who have thought rather less about the rival merits of MEND, iEngage, Quilliam Inspire, Cage and so on than the average Harry’s Place reader. But if it is true that the more liberal organisations are much less respected than the more ‘normative’ outfits – should that stop the editorial writer from at least considering the possibility that the government is correct to draw some red lines over who it deals with?
An Indy op-ed by cartoonist Tim Sanders criticizing a recent Daily Mail cartoon published in the aftermath of the ISIS Paris attacks, which depicts fleeing Muslim refugees as rats, correctly argues that the imagery is […]
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 […]
The key way to get a totally biased survey outcome matching the message you really want to put across is this: is feed your respondents a whole set of statements that embody the political views you want to push, and then invite them to agree or disagree.
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 […]
On Nov. 8th, the Guardian published an obituary for former Israeli President Yitzchak Navon, who died three days earlier at the age of 94. The obituary, written by Lawrence Jaffe, included three […]
Most Israelis – even those who don’t support the settlement enterprise – don’t believe that continued construction across the green line (the overwhelming majority of which is located in areas which will likely become part of Israel in any future peace deal) is as important as the answer to one question: What will happen the day after a ‘peace deal’ is signed?
Anyone even somewhat knowledgeable about Palestinian social media and news sites is likely familiar with anti-Israel (and at times antisemitic) conspiracy theories which pass as news. Such faux news often feeds into […]
The Guardian’s former Jerusalem correspondent Harriet Sherwood penned an article (Star authors call for Israeli-Palestinian dialogue rather than boycotts, Oct. 22) about an anti-BDS letter in the Guardian published the previous day […]
A Guardian article (Netanyahu under fire for Palestinian grand mufti Hitler claim, Oct. 21) by their Jerusalem correspondent Peter Beaumont reports on the row involving a claim made by Israel’s prime minister […]
Guardian associate editor Seumas Milne has been appointed director of communications for Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn, the Telegraph reported earlier tonight. Milne, Corbyn and the Labour Party subsequently confirmed the news. In addition […]
The contrast in coverage between the false claims by Netanyahu and Abbas is that the Israeli leader’s blue jean comment had no real impact on the lives of Iranians, whilst the PA President’s false claim about an Israeli “execution” of an “innocent” boy served to further inflame Arabs and Palestinians amidst a wave of deadly terror attacks on Jews fueled by this very kind of incitement.
Today, The Guardian published a report by Kate Shuttleworth (Stabbed Israeli man mistaken for Arab lashes out at escalating violence, Oct. 15) about several Israeli revenge attacks against Arabs amidst the recent wave of […]
Marwan Barghouti is a murderer currently serving five consecutive life terms (plus 40 years) in an Israeli prison for his 2004 conviction on multiple charges relating to the killing of five civilians during the Second […]
Evidently, the fact that several Israeli soldiers and security guards were standing in close proximity to the woman, while shouting at her to drop the “knife” (which she used moments earlier in an attempt to stab a security guard), didn’t convince Guardian editors that she was in fact brandishing a knife!
One particular headline caught our eye yesterday because it was so clear, accurate and honest – not words typically associated with UK media reports on Israel. Here’s the headline, in a Telegraph/AFP […]
Wednesday saw multiple terror attacks throughout Israel, a wave of Palestinian violence which included scores of rock throwing incidents, dozens of firebomb attacks, several stabbings, a near lynching and one attempted run over […]
A September 24th edition of the Guardian ‘Corrections and Clarifications’ included the following entry: An article about a meeting between Binyamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, and Vladimir Putin, the Russian president, […]
