With mainstream media initially assuming the U.S. was responsible for the latest lethal airstrike in Syria, an American official is reported to have told CNN that Israeli jets must have “overcome significant logistical hurdles” to strike near the Iraqi border, far from Israel’s usual targets near Homs or Damascus.

Israel, not the U.S.-led coalition, was behind a series of airstrikes in northeastern Syria near the Iraqi border on Sunday night, an American official told CNN on Monday.
The international media, which CNN is a major contributor, has been unabashedly aiding and perpetuating the violent situation in Gaza, maybe even more than Hamas by infuriating global audiences against Israel, as a Hamas echo chamber by disseminating ‘Pallywood’ propaganda as factual news.
By Yochanan Visser
US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman this week harshly criticized the international media for being an “echo chamber” for Hamas and other Palestinian organizations in their reporting on the Gaze border riots over the past two months.

“With all the criticism Israel has gotten, nobody has identified the less lethal means by which Israel could have defended itself over the last 4 weeks… If what happened isn’t right – what is right? Continue Reading »
In a CNN interview, Christiane Amanpour incredulously reacts to the former IDF chief of staff, Moshe Ya’alon’s, remarks regarding PM Benjamin Netanyahu.
By JPOST.COM STAFF
Former Israeli defense minister Moshe Ya’alon pulled no punches when, on prime time US television on Tuesday night, he announced his belief that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, his former boss, will be indicted on corruption charges.
CNN’s Christiane Amanpour could hardly believe what the former IDF Chief of Staff had just said.
“There are serious charges and there are serious investigations underway about the prime minister and the issue of corruption. How do you think that is going to end up?” asked Amanpour. Continue Reading »
CNN reported on Thursday that inflammatory rhetoric said by President Trump’s nominee for US ambassador to Israel, David Friedman, had been focused mainly against J-Street and liberal American Jews, saying they ‘don’t support Israel, don’t support traditional Jewish values.’
Donald Trump’s nominee for US ambassador to Israel, David Friedman, bragged in a speech on the eve of the 2016 election that he had succeeded in removing references to the two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict from the Republican party platform and said liberal American Jews were not “a pro-Israel force,” CNN revealed on Thursday.
“When you don’t support Israel, when you don’t support traditional Jewish values, when you don’t view the Torah as God-given legacy — no matter how religious you are, if you don’t have those views, you know you don’t really have much in common,” CNN quoted Friedman as saying in the speech on November 7.

WATCH: Israeli Ambassador to US tells CNN that Israel will present unquestionable evidence to President-elect Trump identifying the White House as driving force behind anti-Israel resolution at UN Security Council.
Israeli Ambassador to the US Ron Dermer spoke with CNN Monday, stating that Israel has proof that US President Obama’s administration is behind Friday’s UN Security Council resolution on Judea, Samaria, and east Jerusalem.

By JERUSALEM POST STAFF
News network CNN has updated a graphic it featured this week listing some of the deadliest terror attacks that occurred throughout the month of Ramadan to include reference to the July 8 shooting attack in Tel Aviv.

Following Wednesday night’s terror attack in Tel Aviv’s Sarona market that left four people dead and 16 wounded CNN inspired outrage with its headline when it put the word “terrorists” in quotations on its Facebook page.

Additionally, the news agency failed to mention terrorism even once in the article reporting the ordeal.
Similarly, the British news network SKY also neglected to use the word “terror” or “terrorism” in their report of the attack at Sarona. Continue Reading »

“3 Palestinians killed as daily violence grinds on,” read the CBS headline. At around 5:30 p.m. Israel time, CBS changed the headline to: “Israeli police kill 3 alleged Palestinian attackers.”
Foreign Ministry spokesman Emmanuel Nachshon said the original headline was “biased and dishonest,” and an example of “unparalleled chutzpa.” He said the ministry, the Government Press Office and the National Information Directorate all worked to get the headline changed. Continue Reading »
AGAIN, A CNN Screwup: Over 3 decades after the town was established, CNN has “discovered” Mevo Horon – and declared it an “illegal settlement” in it’s ‘news’ [sic].
By Moshe Cohen
Nearly three decades after it was established, CNN has “discovered” the town of Mevo Horon – and declared it an “illegal settlement,” according to Yehudit Tiar, one of the town’s long-time residents. “When I contacted them, they themselves admitted that they weren’t clear on the dates. It just goes to show the quality of research and level of believability in the mass media.”

The “discovery” of CNN was apparently made over Passover, when the news network broadcast a story about a “new settlement” that was “causing distress to three Palestinian villages.” Tiar found out about it when a friend called her to congratulate her on the “new settlement,” describing the TV report.

Contrary to earlier surveys conducted by YouGov/Huffington Post, a CNN poll finds majority of respondents think that without first having consulted with the White House, House Speaker Boehner should not have extended any invitation to Netanyahu to speak before Congress.
A majority of Americans think Republican Speaker of the House John Boehner should not have invited Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to address Congress without seeking approval of the White House, a CNN/ORC survey found on Wednesday, contrary to an earlier poll that reached the opposite conclusion.
In a survey of 1,027 adult Americans interviewed from February 12-15, 2015, 63 percent of respondents said it was a bad move for Republican congressional leaders to coordinate the speech without consulting with the Obama administration. Continue Reading »

In bizarre exchange on Twitter, CNN news anchor accused many who disagreed with his comments of being Jewish propagandists for Israel
By Israel Today Staff
In the aftermath of the horrific massacre at the headquarters of a satirical magazine in Paris, veteran CNN news anchor and international correspondent tried to promote the notion that the Muslim perpetrators of this and all such atrocities are extremists, and therefore unrepresentative of mainstream Muslim sentiments or Islamic teachings.

“The cartoons [published by the magazine Charlie Hebdo] NEVER mocked the Prophet.
1st “mistake”: CNN ran a headline stating that 4 Israelis and 2 Palestinians killed in Jerusalem attack, equating the savages to their victims. 2nd “mistake”: Then in separate incident, CNN coverage had “Deadly attack on Jerusalem mosque” superimposed on top of coverage.
Son of Hamas founder says Israel’s ‘Operation Protective Edge’ is for the benefit of all free people.
By Israel Today Staff
In a to-the-point interview with CNN, Mosab Hassan Yousef, son of one of the founders of Hamas, said that the terror organization is not only the reason for the current war, but is holding the people of Gaza, and in particular its children, hostage to a violent Islamic ideology.
Yousef, who years ago converted to Christianity after betraying Hamas and aiding Israeli security, was asked why he decided to abandon an organization for whose leadership he was being groomed. Continue Reading »
