Here’s what you see today at the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict page at The Independent.
One article cites a UN report which accuses Israel of breaching Palestinian rights to development.
One article is based on a claim by academics at London’s School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) that Israel violates academic freedom by unfairly turning away British lecturers (who are pro-Palestinian activists) at the border.
One article reports on the IDF’s interception of a boat carrying pro-Palestinian female activists trying to break Israel’s naval blockade of Gaza.
So, Indy readers interested in learning about the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict are informed that Israel destroys Muslim graves, shoots innocent Palestinian children, breaches Palestinian rights to development and violates the academic freedom of pro-Palestinian Britons.
The only reasonably fair piece, on the IDF’s interception of a boat full of pro-Palestinian activists, is actually an article by Associated Press (AP) republished by the Indy.
Though this is only one day’s view of the Indy’s Israeli-Palestinian Conflict page, we’ve clearly demonstrated that this is indicative of a larger pattern of systemic bias against the Jewish state at the news site – one which we’ve been documenting for years.
