Once again, we see how the Guardian’s malign obsession with Israel manifests itself in the decisions made each day by their editors.
The bottom line is that there is literally no real evidence to support The Independent’s assertion that Israel’s wars with Hamas were launched for the purpose of improving the governing party’s electoral results.
BBC audiences are told that Hamas is ‘cash-strapped’ – but not why.
Contrary to the dominant narrative, the continuing Israeli occupation is not the cause of Palestinian terrorism. It is the result of Palestinian terrorism. But, as long as Palestinians are not taken seriously as agents of their own fate, and are treated instead merely as passive victims of Israel, this an important causation shaping the Israeli-Palestinian conflict will continue to elude British news consumers.
Contrary to the Indy’s claim, the US anti-BDS bill narrowly addresses business practices, not individual speech. And, even then, it merely protects the rights of local and state governments which decide to no longer do business with those who boycott Israel.
Here’s the latest installment in our ongoing series of posts documenting BDS fails.
The Guardian doesn’t even attempt to demonstrate in which manner the Israeli law undermines equal rights because editors couldn’t, if pressed, point to even one civil or political right enjoyed by non-Jewish citizens before the law that they no longer enjoyed after the law was passed.
Research by blogger David Collier, based on a database of official transcripts of UK parliament proceedings, found an increasing obsession with Israel.
or all their erudition, Beinart and his Guardian fellow travelers fail to grasp a point that most Jews know instinctively: that Jews can never, and will never, replace the Jewish state with the pre-Holocaust state of perpetual political weakness which left Jews continually vulnerability to antisemitic scapegoating, violence and genocide.
The Indy headline caught our eye because “Israeli fingerprints” is a term often used by extremists to evoke the idea of some sort of false flag operation, in which it is alleged that Israel is secretly behind attacks launched by other countries.
A Feb. 14 article in the Independent on reactions to antisemitic tweets by Congresswoman Ilhan Omar devoted several paragraphs to a defence of Omar by the fringe Jewish group IfNotNow, whilst omitting any reference to the near universal criticism by large mainstream US Jewish groups.
Whilst it’s true that Ilhan Omar has been the target of ugly abuse by some due to her ethnic and/or religious background, such completely unjustifiable bigotry doesn’t seem intellectually dissimilar to the liberal racism which rejects universal moral standards by minimising, obfuscating or justifying antisemitism due merely to the gender, race or religion of the perpetrator.
