I have a longer article about MJ Rosenberg and Judge Goldstone coming up on Sunday, but I couldn’t wait that long to share this picture I made with you. As always, click to zoom in if necessary.
As of the time of this writing, there have been two responses to the famous Goldstone op-ed on the Huffington Post. One is by Rabbi Shmuley Boteach and the other is by MJ Rosenberg. As you might expect we are talking about the latter, titled “Goldstone’s Edit Changes Nothing.” Of course not. Heaven forbid Mr. […]
A reader asks me: But why is media reporting so bad (obviously with many honorable exceptions). I first wrote on this topic back in 1974. Then, however, the problems were traditional ones: the need to write and publish quickly (of course, a process sped up by new technologies), lack of familiarity with other countries and […]
From CAMERA: BBC Ethics Unveiled: Lies About Jerusalem, Lies About Guidelines The BBC revealed its complete disregard of its own Editorial Guidelines when it defended an egregiously one-sided and inaccurate documentary about Jerusalem. This video investigates the flouting of these guidelines by Panorama and the disingenuous ruling of the BBC Trust’s Editorial Standards Committee in […]
I had meant to post this the other day, but apparently never did. There’s some reason not to now?
Over the last few weeks, Palestinian terrorist groups in Gaza have considerably raised the tempo of violating international law, launching hundreds of rockets and mortars, indiscriminately, at smaller Israeli communities and cities bordering Gaza, and at the larger metropolitan areas of Ashdod and Be’er Sheva. Despite the lodging of an Israeli complaint with the United […]
An obituary about a gentleman named John Watson –written by one of his former commanders and appearing in the Guardian on March 29th – contains an interesting paragraph. “His battalion was posted to Palestine in 1948, as the British Mandate came to an end. Watson was appalled by the imminent destruction of the new state […]
So predictable is MJ Rosenberg, the big-mouthed Jewish anti-Zionist, that one avoids his rants like the plague. Rosenberg, who blogs at TPM Café and the Huffington Post, is a Foreign Policy Fellow at George Soros’s Media Matters Action Network. A former aide to Democrats and one-time AIPAC bigwig, somewhere along the path he took a […]
At a recent session of the UN Human Rights Council a UN-accredited NGO with terrorist affiliations (IHH) distributed a publication containing the following picture: This image (published during the flotilla incident in June) – of a demonic Israel, with the swastika substituted for the star of David on the Israeli flag, as an octopus strangling […]
It seems like mere days ago that every reporter and expert on almost every television channel and newspaper was telling the American people that Egypt’s revolution was a great thing, run by Facebook-savvy liberal democrats, inspired by President Barack Obama and “universal values.” Those silly, paranoid Israelis had nothing to worry about. Christians were supporting […]
Jeffrey Goldberg, among others, caught this little gem in a Reuters story about the Jerusalem terrorist attack: Police said it was a “terrorist attack” — Israel’s term for a Palestinian strike. It was the first time Jerusalem had been hit by such a bomb since 2004. One of the best quick takes on this came […]
There were two important news stories that came from the survivors of the mass murder at Itamar. Here are some quotations from the grandfather of the three children who were killed: ‘His inspiring remarks on Voice of Israel government radio stunned the interviewer into near silence and brought tears to her eyes.
Khaled Abu Toameh: Hamas Targets Journalists: Media, Human Rights Groups Silent – ‘In the past few days, at least eight journalists were severly beaten with clubs or summoned for questioning while doing their job in the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip when Hamas policemen in civilian clothes began attacking demonstrators. Other journalists have had their cameras and […]
Hamas had Nassur, Assud, Nahoul, and Farfur. It appears that Egypt’s Nour Al-Khaleejiyah TV has developed genocidal child-abusing mammal envy. MEMRI brings us this clip of Egyptian TV for kids. At least in this case, unlike the Hamas show, the adult is lecturing and the big rabbit, Sa’d, is mostly quietly munching a carrot and […]
Syria is a country in the Middle East of some 22 million people. It’s bordered by Iraq to the east, Jordan to the south, Israel and Lebanon to the south-west and Turkey to the north. It’s western coast on the Mediterranean Sea is just under 200km long.
In the four days or so since the killing of five people in Itamar, the Huffington Post has published a grand total of two articles about it, both news. One was about the attack itself, the second was about Abbas condemning it. Not one Huffington Post blogger had written anything about the story until Daoud […]
There are two articles that have to do with Israel that have over 1,000 comments currently on the HP (well, more than 2 but these are the main ones): A Palestinian man was allegedly abducted by the Mossad from the Ukraine and a Jewish family was massacred. Let’s take a look at the pictures the […]
Worse even than the NY Times, possibly on the same level as the UK Guardian, I give you the Los Angeles Times: Anyone who follows the news is familiar with how this cycle works. It might begin with a Palestinian child dying while stopped at an Israeli army checkpoint on his way to the hospital. […]
