The Guardian report, through their egregious omission, as well as legitimising a risible comparison between Tamimi and the Pakistani heroine, obfuscated the Palestinian teen’s disturbing support for murdering Israeli civilians – representing yet another example of the media group’s ongoing efforts to whitewash widespread Palestinian support for violence.
Palestinian antisemitism is one of the more under-reported political pathologies within the region, and the failure of journalists and editors to deal honestly with the injurious impact of this enduring hatred contributes to the British public’s egregious misunderstanding of both the root cause of the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict and the endemic backwardness and underdevelopment within Palestinian society.
The reference to EDL’s supposed support for Israel is gratuitous and completely inappropriate in the context of the article, as the far-right group’s position on Israel is not even minimally central to their mission. Nor is it helpful in contextualizing the extremist views of Jo Cox’s suspected murderer.
