Following a complaint by UK Media Watch, the Guardian amended an article which had falsely claimed that the recent violence between Israel and Gaza was triggered by the IDF shooting of Palestinian protesters.
Ian Black, the Guardian former Middle East editor, managed to blame Israel for the latest round of violence with Hamas, despite the fact that his own paper reported the sequence of events accurately.
The suggestion in the EU report that the Jewish “narrative” is being promoted “at the expense of other religions” represents the opposite of the truth, as Israel continues to safeguard Muslim holy sites in Jerusalem, whilst Palestinian leaders continually deny Jewish history in the holy city and incite their people to view any Jewish presence on Judaism’s holiest site as an intrusion onto an exclusively ‘Muslim’ site.
There seems to be no limit to the lengths the Guardian will go to ignore, obfuscate or excuse Palestinian extremism, incitement or historical revisionism. Their former Middle East Editor, Ian Black, provided his take on Mahmoud Abbas’s recent speech in Ramallah and characteristically airbrushed the most indefensible parts in order to maintain the narrative of a ‘moderate’, even “principled” Palestinian President.
