Why has the Guardian ignored the violent intimidation of Jewish students at UCL?

Mazzig and Jewish attendees were repeatedly intimidated and harassed and eventually had to be evacuated by police. The incident prompted a chorus of criticism from MPs and Jewish organizations, which led to an announcement by the university that an official investigation would be launched. UK news outlets reporting the incident include the Times of London, the Telegraph, the Daily Mail, the Independent, the Express, the Evening Standard, Channel 4 News and LBC. Yet, the ‘anti-racism’ campaigners at the Guardian have thus far completely ignored the story.

Times of London again suggests that Tel Aviv is Israel’s capital (Update)

In 2014, we prompted a correction to a Times of London print article that falsely claimed Tel Aviv was Israel’s capital – an error that other news outlets, including the Guardian have been forced to correct over the years. Today, we noticed that Times of London made a similar error in an article on Turkey’s recent reconciliation with Israel (Isolated Turkey mends ties with Russia, Israel and perhaps Egypt, June 28th.)

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.
