More “Palestine Papers” the Guardian Chose to Bury

Elder of Ziyon again has a great scoop – another “Palestine Paper” the Guardian chose to bury. This document demonstrates that, in 2008, the PLO wrote a paper describing the legal rights of Jews to lands that they owned prior to 1948 in Judea and Samaria (land confiscated by the Jordanians when they took control […]

The Palestine Papers: When evidence is subservient to a political agenda

Britain Israel Communications and Research Centre (BICOM) has provided an extremely valuable contribution in systematically documenting the clear pattern of bias, misrepresentation, and errors which pervades the Guardian’s “Palestine Papers.” BICOM’s analysis, titled “Palestine Papers: Analysis or Agenda“, of the highly tendentious Guardian “expose” – curiously released by the Qatar-based Al-Jazeera – includes the following […]

Guardian “letters section” ongoing debate about which Israelis it’s moral to kill

The most interesting aspect of a letter written by Kashif Sheikh, and published by the Guardian on Friday, was that it was couched in language suggesting the opposite.

Yaacov Lozowick: Seamus Milne Is Correct – and Evil

Yaacov Lozowick: Seamus Milne Is Correct – and Evil – ‘Seamus Milne lives in a different reality than most people I know.

Guardian claim about Livni in Palestine Papers contradicted by their own document

H/T Elder of Ziyon: More and more, the story of the Palestine Papers is not what may have been revealed in the negotiations but, rather, the Guardian’s capacity to distort almost any nugget of information in a way which confirms their worldview. In “Papers reveal how Palestinian leaders gave up fight over refugees” written by […]

SCOOP: Explaining How The “Palestine Papers” Story Is A Fabrication That Teaches Us The Truth

The “Palestine Papers” hoax is (or, more accurately, should be) turning into the most teachable moment about the Israel-Palestinian conflict in modern history. At least, everyone has reversed what happened: The compromise position was offered by Israel; the Palestinians rejected peace. Are we going to see this story corrected? The “Palestine Papers” have been “obtained” by al-Jazira, the […]

Guardian editorial on Palestine Papers: Ideological Incitement

Robin Shepherd made a great observation about the Guardian Editorial on the Palestine Papers, one that we touched on in yesterday’s post The Guardian’s outrage over concessions relating to Jerusalem, and occupied territories, positions them closer to the views of Hamas than more moderate elements of Palestinian society.

Palestine Papers Confirm What Israel Has Said All Along

Palestine Papers Confirm What Israel Has Said All Along – ‘I don’t know whether the “Palestine Papers” published yesterday by Al Jazeera and the Guardian are real or, as Barry Rubin argues, a fake aimed at discrediting the Palestinian Authority’s current leadership.
