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.
It’s rare to see Israel’s argument laid out in any news article let alone in The Guardian. Holmes shows that Israel’s refusal to allow Tlaib and Omar entry isn’t simply “to quiet anti-occupation activism”.
At the end of the day, the reports all relied on the same premise: only a clear distinction between good Jews and Zionists could exonerate Tunisian Jewry and clear them of the charge of being “Zionists in Jews’ clothing”.
Called “No Room for anti-Semites, We’re Already Full,” the website provides “some basic tools to understand antisemitism so that we can hide it better.”
The Guardian is now indistinguishable from the very antisemitic organs that the newspaper itself used to hate
Contrary to claims by Sky, AFP and Reuters, Jordan does not have a guardianship role over Jerusalem’s Christian holy sites.
Though the Sky News Arabia article is correct in observing that there have been no Arab players on the team, their claim that Beitar hasn’t had a single Muslim player is completely untrue.
Written by Jonathan Hoffman (See important update at the bottom of this post.) Dr Rosena Allin-Khan – a Labour MP and a medical doctor – has criticised Israel’s permit regime for those […]
Little is new in Sky News Arabia’s world: the sun shines, the wind blows, and Jewish settlers “storm al-Aqsa Mosque”. Thus, the British-Emirati network’s portrayal of virtually all Israeli and Jewish presence at the Temple Mount, Judaism’s holiest site, as illegitimate, has encompassed twenty-two exclusive news items over less than two years.
“Here, the rise of Jeremy Corbyn had an unforeseen side-effect – it galvanised and united British Jews, mobilising the community. We have come to understand that there is no point talking about settlements with someone who denies the Holocaust. Nor any reason to entertain discussion over a partial Israeli withdrawal with someone who seeks to destroy Israel. We have learnt that there is no point negotiating anything at all with antisemites and we recognise that often, when they say ‘Zionist’, they actually mean ‘Jew’.”
Contrary to Sky News Arabia’s claim, the actual number of Palestinians UNRWA was mandated in 1949 to provide aid is around 750,000
It’s extremely troubling that Sky News Arabia – a network which purports to uphold Western journalistic standards – would evoke classic antisemitic tropes by suggesting that the editorial decisions of a rival Arab media outlet were made at the behest of ‘the Zionists’.
When the entire country is labeled “occupied” “Palestine”, these Arabic-language Western media outlets – which purportedly uphold Western journalistic standards of objectivity and accuracy – are legitimizing extremist rhetoric negating Israel’s very existence.
Earlier this month, Sky News Arabia – a joint venture between the UK-based Sky News and Abu Dhabi Media Investment Corporation – joined the long list of news outlets who have falsely claimed that Jerusalem’s Western Wall is “Judaism’s holiest site”. The false claim was in an article, published in its website on March 8th, about a protest at the Western Wall compound by the organisation “Women of the Wall”.
Research by blogger David Collier, based on a database of official transcripts of UK parliament proceedings, found an increasing obsession with Israel.
