Clearly, this circus could not have lasted a minute had the “journalist” actually spoken to the object of his coverage, a Hebrew speaker, or had the “intellectuals” and “experts” had the slightest clue about their area of expertise, the Hebrew language.
To mark Independent Arabia’s first anniversary, we’re presenting six of the headlines their editorial staff found worthy of publishing (under The Independent’s logo) during the past year.
Like other cases we’ve carefully documented before, this one also shows how Sky News and The Independent do not hold their Arabic-speaking subsidiaries to serious journalistic standards, certainly not those the English outlets presumably adhere. Noteworthy is the fact that both outlets have publicly declared they would do so.
Independent Arabia’s Gaza Strip correspondent ‘Izz ad-Deen Abu-‘Eisheh continues his series of interviews with Palestinian “experts” who level absurd claims about Israeli, Jewish and Zionist affairs – allegations that aren’t challenged by […]
We’re back in the Axis of Evil! Back in our rightful place as World Badass Numero Uno!
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?
This is the fourth in a series of posts by CAMERA Arabic (part 1, part 2, part 3) showing how Arabic language news networks, including those affiliated with Western media outlets, frame […]
Written by Tamar Sternthal A major media event has hit the biblical town of Bethlehem, Jesus’ birthplace, just days before Christmas: The secretive artist Banksy has produced a new exhibit depicting the […]
A photo that Independent Arabia claims is Jews immigrating to “Palestine” is in fact Austro-Hungarian soldiers marching next to the walls of Jerusalem during World War 1.
Last week’s round of hostilities between Israel and Islamic Jihad saw hundreds of rockets fired from Gaza at Israeli communities – the “Gaza envelope” villages and the town of Sderot, as well […]
Alashqar’s article was written with the sole objective of vilifying Israel by amplifying Hamas talking points. Every action or hardship is Israel’s fault no matter what the truth states. Mr Alashqar – alongside so many others – can continue to blame Israel and indemnify Gazans, but this only serves to make peace an ever more distant dream for both Israelis and Palestinians.
Independent Arabia – a joint venture of the UK based Independent and the Saudi media group SRMG, with ties to the Saudi state – continues to parrot anti-Israeli propaganda in yet another egregiously biased article
Independent Arabia, operating under the imprimatur of a presumably “Western” media outlet, recently published a report from Gaza that parroted Hamas propaganda .
Written by Petra Marquardt-Bigman From my home on the southern outskirts of Tel Aviv, I hear the Muslim call to prayer every day as it issues from a mosque half a mile […]
The Guardian are obsessed with Israel, that much was already clear. But the Guardian’s reporting on Israel also contains a vindictive hostility. An endless stream of negative articles, all carefully worded to present Israel as the most vile, oppressive, Muslim hating, Christian hating, gay hating, Palestinian hating, murderous nation on earth
The Itamar couple was gunned down in front of their four children while driving the family car, and As-Sayeh’s was found responsible for funding and authorizing it. While AFP and Independent Arabia mentioned his involvement as merely an Israeli accusation used to justify his “arrest” (thus omitting his conviction), Sky News Arabia ignored his connection to the attack altogether:
So this Guardian piece downplays the Holocaust, attempts to turn Jews within Israel against each other and, in my opinion, compares Israeli policy to the Nazis
When last Friday, a few days after her 17th birthday, beautiful Israeli teenager Rina Shnerb was murdered by a terrorist while she was out trekking with her family, and some Palestinians celebrated her murder, the truth-to-power-speaking Guardian journalism suddenly stopped.
PTSD is a serious issue in Israel and every country, but to single out the Israeli government for the accusation of “abandoning” its soldiers must be another low for Guardian journalism.
The Guardian has a trendy hip-hop section but after reading Tom Faber’s recent interview with Palestinian hip-hop duo BLTNM, made up of Shabjdeed and Al Nather, we weren’t sure if the piece’s main aim was to profile them or whitewash Israel out of existence.
