The Channel 4 News presenter’s unsubstantiated allegations against both Sa’ar and Gantz represent yet another example of the British media promoting the “Israel is moving dangerously right” narrative regardless of the facts.
The bottom line is that there is literally no real evidence to support The Independent’s assertion that Israel’s wars with Hamas were launched for the purpose of improving the governing party’s electoral results.

A July 3rd article in The Independent, written by Sam Masters, mischaracterized the conclusions of a UNHRC report on the Gaza war. Here’s the relevant sentence: A recent UN report into last year’s […]

The Guardian’s Jerusalem correspondent Peter Beaumont has once again uncritically featured a report by the radical European-funded NGO Breaking the Silence (Bts). Beaumont’s May 3rd story devotes 2100 words to a new BtS report consisting of anonymous […]
