Guardian journos Tweet their ‘liberal’ views on the Jewish State


Much like the Guardian’s egregiously one-sided coverage of the war, many tweets by Guardian journalists about the conflict have demonized Israel, and completely ignored the role played by Hamas – the antisemitic terrorist group ruling Gaza.

Here’s are just a few recent Tweets by ‘professional’ journalists affiliated with a media institution which fancies itself the world’s leading liberal voice:

George Monibot:

gmIsrael has committed mass murder

Antony Lerman

al

Zionism wants antisemitism in Europe

Joseph Harker

Israel is evil, in two tweets

 

Regarding Harker, we should note that he’s the Guardian’s Assistant Comments Editor, which helps explain the biased comment moderation we’re continually documenting.

  1. JosephHarker Is it on your instructions that the mods delete any mention of guilt or a crime committed by a Palestinian? Is it really your opinion that they are so despicable that their actions cannot be mentioned? Is the Hamas Charter so vile in your eyes (as it is in mine) that every mention of it has to be deleted?

    Is it fair to call Israel Apartheid and display abject ignorance without being censured?

    Are you aware of how the absurd bias of your mods encourages ‘users’ with less and less factual knowledge and markedly less intelligence than in the past?

  2. 1/2 So what if 95% of Israelis support the Gaza bombing? White SouthAfricans backed apartheid.Germans backed Hitler. Brits supported slavery

    Surely one could say the same thing of Gazans and Hamas, and its eliminationist, militant struggle against any kind of Israel?

    A struggle which perhaps Harker shares.

    • The Palestinians have the right to defend themselves from attack, just as the French and Polish resistance did in WW2. That’s the real struggle going on here.

      • Yes Freddy of course they have. As we know both the French and Polish resistance started shelling German population centers before the German attacks, sent suicide terrorists into German cities to kill German civilians, beheaded German babies in their beds, kidnapped and murdered hitchhiking German teenagers and declared in their charter their ultimate goal – the annihilation of the German people.
        The only remaining question is this: What is the dominant factor in Freddy Flint’s worldview – his hate of the Jews, his stupidity, his failures in every possible areas in his life or some combination of them.

  3. What a bizarre and sinister allegation about Natan Sharansky! These people are dangerous and hateful. They are position opinion on a daily basis. Sick.

      • Only an idiot like Sencar will take a sentence fragment and turn it into a lifetime’s philosophy.

        There’s a reason why we don’t consider anything but an idiot, Dude.

        • Then it’s settled. Herzl promoted antisemitism. Because someone kinda quoted some part of something he might have said once. dynomite.

      • I think you deliberatly got these two statement merged in wrong order and added middle bits to make it into another meaning altogether didn’t you, Ingmar Karlsson?

        I guess I have to remind you of the original:

        “It would be an excellent idea to call in respectable, accredited anti-Semites as liquidators of property. To the people they would vouch for the fact that we do not wish to bring about the impoverishment of the countries that we leave. At first they must not be given large fees for this; otherwise we shall spoil our instruments and make them despicable as ‘stooges of the Jews’.

        “Later their fees will increase, and in the end we shall have only Gentile officials in the countries from which we have emigrated. The anti-Semites will become our most dependable friends, the anti-Semitic countries our allies.”

        So, sencar (or should we call you Karlsson?) why are you spouting AntiSemitic material?

        Now say “Kwak kwak”….

      • “There is a long history of zionists promoting antisemitism”

        I had always wondered who it was that promoted anti-Semitism. Thanks to you, we now all know. As spot on as your many other comments, sencar, and equally as valuable.
        I would invite everyone to follow the link you provided to see the kind of garbage you read and value, so they’ll no illusions about your character.

        • I followed your advice Jeff and clicked on the link provided by Brian/sencar.
          Can you imagine my surprise to find that Brian is citing articles by a Dr. K R Bolton who it turns out is “Bolton was a co-founder of the Nationalist Workers’ Party, and was briefly secretary for the New Zealand Fascist Union in 1997”

          Brian I know Knutsford is not known for its support of left-wing thought or politicians but a Fascist?
          Really Brian you are sinking deeper and deeper into the abyss of anti-Semitism.

      • Quite obvious that an anisemite declares that Jews are guilty of antisemitism. Thanks for your confession, but it was unnecessary, we already know.

  4. “1/2 So what if 95% of Israelis support the Gaza bombing? White SouthAfricans backed
    apartheid.Germans backed Hitler. Brits supported slavery”
    and Joseph Harker of the Guardian proudly supports genocidal, anti-Semitic Hamas.

    • Joseph Hawker: Mandela’s attorney was white (and Jewish). There were many white supporters of the ANC, some were arrested and most had to flee South Africa. Don’t make assumptions.

  5. “2/2 People tend to support evil when they benefit from it. The issue is whether the rest of the world lets them get away with it.”

    Mr. Harker,
    It sounds as if you’re betting that the rest of world won’t stop you.
