By OMRI NAHMIAS

TIME Magazine takes yet another swipe at Israel’s PM Netanyahu

By David Lazarus

“Bibi is preparing for yet another campaign, a September do-over election that will test yet again whether the Israel that has grown to resemble its Prime Minister—prosperous, powerful and resilient, yet insecure—still wants him,” reads the TIME article about Israel’s Prime Minister.

BBC caught covering up Palestinian anti-Semitism

BBC was called out for concealing open Arab anti-Semitism in its documentary about Gaza border protests by mistranslating the word ‘Yahud’ [Jew]….FIVE times, in an obvious attempt to point criticism on Israel instead of exposing institutionalized antisemitism prevalent in Palestinian culture.

By Marcy Oster, JTA,

 

The BBC is being accused of covering up Palestinian Arab anti-Semitism after it mistranslated in subtitles the word for “Jew” to “Israeli” several times in one documentary.

The film “One Day in Gaza,” about last year’s Gaza border protests against the opening of the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem, aired Monday night on the BBC Two channel. Continue Reading »

Alan Dershowitz: Ilhan Omar still exposing her “ignorance and bigotry”

US Congresswoman Omar encourages Hamas and Islamic Jihad to fire rockets on Israeli cities by placing blame on the Israeli victims, for what she calls the “cycle of violence,” but has no condemnation on those very groups for initiating terrorist rocket-attacks on the Israeli civilians, or for using their people as human shields.

By ALAN DERSHOWITZ

 

All decent people should be outraged at the terrorist groups in the Gaza Strip that fired 698 rockets at Israeli civilians – killing four, injuring 234 and traumatizing thousands of innocent children. Imagine what other countries, including the United States, would do if lethal rockets targeted their civilians. Continue Reading »

Visiting Christian Millennials Realize Media Deceived Them About Israel

A party of eleven young millennials visiting from seven Western countries were flabbergasted when an Arab Christian told them, “There is no [Israeli] occupation,” adding, “Where is the occupation? We are completely under the Palestinian Authority.”

By Charles Gardner

 

An international group of millennials have seen the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in a new light after engaging with both sides – and being shocked by what they discovered.

A party of eleven young people from seven nations were brought together for the chance to understand issues from the point of view of those living there. They were deliberately not primed to view things from any particular perspective in order to allow them to form their own conclusions through interviews and talks with representatives of both Israelis and Palestinians.

#FakeNews: CNN called out by Israel’s Foreign Ministry for news ‘manipulation’

Israel’s Ministry spokesman Emmanuel Nahshon was furious at CNN’s chronologically inaccurate report which implied that the killing of the 4 Palestinians (3 of whom were Hamas terrorists) preceded the killing of IDF Staff Sgt. Aviv Levi, thus attributing blame for his assignation on Israel.

By Itamar Eichner

 

Israel’s Foreign Ministry slammed CNN and BBC on Saturday for what it said was unbalanced coverage of recent events in Gaza, accusing the news outlets of “manipulating” events.

Palestinian children throw stones at Prince William

UNREPORTED in the West: After Prince William Duke of Cambridge finished this tour of the Jalazun refugee camp east of Ramallah, Palestinian children took to the streets to pelt him, and his convoy with stones.

By Israel Today Staff

 

Prince William’s visit was important for being the first (official visit) by a member of the British Royal Family since the founding of the State of Israel. But beside that fact, it was a rather uneventful stopover, as befitting the visit of an apolitical figure to a politically-charged region.

Except for once incident.

Seems that when Prince William went to visit with Palestinian and UN officials in Ramallah, his vehicle was stoned by Palestinian children. Continue Reading »

With the help of Fake News reporting, Israel’s the ‘bad guy’ once again

A Pallywood Production:
Ignoring IDF decorations, Western media and celebrity pundits were once again happy to demonize Israel by blindly accepting and falsely reporting a Hamas report that a 9-month baby girl from Gaza died after inhaling Israeli fired tear-gas. 

By  Ryan Jones

 

Remember that baby girl who died in Gaza last month allegedly after inhaling teargas fired by Israeli soldiers against Palestinian protestors?

Well, surprise, surprise…it turns out 9-month-old Layla Ghandour wasn’t the victim of heartless Israeli brutality after all. At least not according to her cousin.

So happy to throw Israel to the wolves. – Twitter screenshot

Twenty-year-old Mohammed Omar was captured by Israeli forces late last month while taking part in a three-man infiltration of southern Israel. Continue Reading »

Torchbearer of FAKE NEWS, CNN is major propagator of Hamas propaganda

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.

By David Rosenberg

 

A member of the House of Lords and former chairman of the British Broadcasting Corporation addressed the problem of media bias against Israel during a speech in Parliament on Wednesday, lambasting the BBCfor its coverage of recent terror attacks against Jews in Israel.

Lord Michael Grade, who was chairman of the BBC from 2004 to 2006, praised his country’s backing for a Jewish national home in the 1917 Balfour Declaration, but lamented that much of the media today feeds false narratives about the Jewish state, while anti-Semites use Zionism and Zionists as a proxy for attacking Judaism and Jews.
