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.

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 […]
The reason why such journalists always look for an Israeli root cause when explaining such acts of terror – whether it’s the settlements, “threats” to al-Aqsa, hopelessness, etc. – is that they immediately discount any explanation (no matter how grounded in empirical data) suggesting that attacks have a racist (antisemitic) motive – an ideological orientation which has fed anti-Jewish violence in the region for well over a century.
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?
Earlier we posted about a Guardian report which legitimized baseless accusations that Israeli police are planting knives on innocent Palestinians after summarily executing them. Additionally, a new Amnesty International report on Israel buttresses this Palestinian […]

So if you think that Hamas, Islamic Jihad, and Fatah are not disciples of the mufti’s values then you need to be offended by Netanyahu’s efforts to link the Nazis to the Palestinian cause. Of course, you also need to keep your eyes tightly closed.
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 […]
On Oct. 9, The Independent published a report by Lee Williams (titled ‘Intifada: What is it – and what does a third uprising mean for the region’) which grossly misleads on both the […]
Here’s the large photo spread across pages 30-31 in the Oct. 20th print edition of Times of London – accompanying an article by Gregg Carlstrom on the recent Arab violence. The caption reads: […]
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.

Earlier today, CAMERA’s Tamar Sternthal commented on a misleading headline at USA Today. The headline, “Israelis kill 4 Palestinians as violence surges,” noted Sternthal, failed to “clearly report that the four Palestinians were killed […]
