Is the Guardian Once Again Suggesting that Israel is Killing Gazan Babies?

The Guardian cannot resist seeing the death of babies in Gaza ultimately as an Israeli nail to be hammered even when her own words make it clear where the blame truly lies. It is time for her and others like her to take an honest look at what is going on in Gaza and report truthfully rather than fearing to speak out – not in case Israel bans them, but in case Hamas does.

Guardian whitewashes the extremism of Ismail Patel and his ‘pro-Palestinian’ group

The Guardian’s failure to challenge Ismail Patel’s claim that the government was “acting on hearsay from a pro-Israeli lobby group” is classic Guardian: failing to reveal the well-documented evidence demonstrating that individuals and groups they cover – who claim to be merely ‘pro-Palestinian’ – are compromised by extremism, support for terror and antisemitism. 

Times of London corrects, Guardian still misleads on EL AL sex discrimination story

A Jerusalem court recently ruled in favor of a female passenger who sued El Al when she was asked by a flight attendant to move seats at the behest of an ultra-Orthodox man. She was not forced to move seats, but was merely asked – a request the court still found to be illegal. Nonetheless, reports by Times of London and the Guardian botched this crucial detail.

UK Media Watch prompts Guardian correction over ‘Israeli think tank’ claim

The Guardian’s claim regarding the putative position of “Israeli” thinktanks on the Saudi-UAE isolation of Qatar not only comes completely out of nowhere, and is seemingly irrelevant, but is also erroneous.  The link embedded in the claim takes you to an article in Middle East Eye, which clearly identifies the think tank as Foundation for Defense of Democracies (FDD), a thinktank based in Washington, D.C., not Israel. We contacted Guardian editors, who upheld our complaint and revised the passage accordingly.

The Guardian presents an ideal view of Hamas

I do understand Sarah Helm’s desire to paint Hamas in a positive light in her May 19 article at the Guardian. I too wish that their intentions were as positive as she seems determined to present them as being; peace between Israel and the Palestinians – the magical goal that every politician yearns for – would be so much more easily attainable.

The Guardian’s Tareq Baconi urges us to talk to Hamas.

The Guardian’s Tareq Baconi wishes us “to talk to Hamas” urging that now is the time due to Hamas’ new Document of General Principles which, he writes, “supports the creation of a sovereign Palestinian state based on the 1967 borders”. As we argued, this document is a sham meant to trick the gullible and aid those desperate to push the Palestinian cause.

Meet the new cuddlier Hamas…according to our media.
