If Guardian editors are not, as we argue, guilty of the bigotry of low expectations, and do impute moral agency to Palestinians, then we’d love it if they attempted to prove us wrong by publishing an editorial on what Palestinian leaders can do to promote peace in the Middle East.
Whatever one’s views on Trump’s plan, the failure of media outlets like ITV to provide news consumers with some basic facts on the history of Palestinian leaders’ rejectionism denies them the important context they need to fully understand the PA’s reaction.
If we were to conceive of the Private Eye article as a person, we’d be forced to say that he didn’t have a honest bone in his body.
As journalists cover Holocaust commemoration events today in Jerusalem, the lofty rhetoric by world leaders, diplomats and intellectuals evoking the idea ‘never again’ – the moral imperative to never again allow Jew hatred to go unchallenged because we know now where this leads – will ring hollow if the principle of anti-antisemitism is not applied universally.
We’re back in the Axis of Evil! Back in our rightful place as World Badass Numero Uno!
Guardian readers should – but, of course, won’t – take note: For Saeb Erekat, words and lofty, progressive rhetoric don’t have objective meanings. They mean ‘just what he chooses them to mean, neither more nor less’.
The Times article fails to note precisely why nearly 80,000 Jews left: the government’s imprisonment, torture and expulsion of Jews, anti-Jewish violence and other anti-Jewish policies that made it impossible for Jews to stay.

Though it took over two weeks for editors to respond to our email, they ultimately did uphold our complaint and addressed our concerns by add the following two paragraphs to the article.
Out of all Uri Davis’s diverse activities against Zionism and the Jewish state, carefully listed in the profile by his sycophantic interlocutor Khalil Mousa, why did Independent Arabia editors choose to put his conversion to Islam in the sub-headline, as the first detail about Davis their readers are exposed to?
As we enter a new decade, we thought it would be fun to look back at some of our more interesting and impactful posts over the past ten years.
Palestinian children never travel for treatment unaccompanied by a parent or (at least) a relative. COGAT informed us that “during the first half of 2019, over 2,700 permits were issued for children’s medical treatment, with a nearly equivalent number issued for accompanying parents”. The image evoked by the language in the op-ed, of children alone in Israeli hospitals without family members, is, as with the broader narrative of the Indy op-ed, pure fiction.
