Polish Justice Minister seeks to ban use of misleading phrase: ‘Polish death camp’

White House aid admits Obama lied to Israel, Congress, the American people

 

view videoWATCH: Obama’s ‘Minister of Propaganda’ admits purposely bamboozling journalists to mislead the public on Iran nuclear deal.
Israel’s PM Netanyahu was right.

By Ari Yashar

 

In light of White House aide Ben Rhodes’ admission last Thursday that the public was misled on the controversial Iran nuclear deal, senior author and commentator Lt. Col. Ralph Peters on Monday quipped that brutal Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin “could have used this guy.”

Rhodes admitted that while the American public was led to believe that negotiations between the West and the Islamic Republic took off after the election of President Hassan Rouhani in 2013, who was touted as a “moderate,” in reality negotiations with hard-liners began much earlier.

Hamas Exploits ‘Terror Tots’, Children Soldiers as Suicide Bombers For Palestine

Hamas’s Interior Ministry celebrates its 5 yr-old armed children soldiers, and in doing so, proves little separates the ‘Palestinian resistance’ from the genocidal Islamic State. 

By Ari Yashar

 

Hamas evidently wanted to leave no doubts that when it comes to implementing its jihadist genocidal goals of wiping out the Jewish people by all terrorist means at its disposal, age is no barrier – and that brainwashing works all the better the younger you start.

Lies About Gaza Are Swallowed Easily and Exploited Widely to Libel Israel

Year after year, mainstream media continue their traditional anti-Israel frenzy knowing full well the lies portray the Jewish State in a sinister manor.

By Ryan Jones

 

Had they done so, these gatekeepers of Western public opinion would have realized that Israel has no dams that can be opened and closed in its southern region, and that Gaza is simply a low-lying coastal area that unfortunately suffers severe flooding during winters with average-to-above average rainfall.

The Daily Mail did later publish a retraction, but, as usual, the damage had already been done.

One story most of these media outlets chose not to cover was the announcement last week that Israel would soon double the amount of fresh water it provides to Gaza.

Iconic photo depicting coexistence was staged — a disappointment too

21 years after the scene was choreographed, the 2 boys in the photo are both grown up Israeli Jews – living in a changing world, where dreams of such Israeli-Palestinian friendship seem sometimes like an unrealistic possibility.

By The Forward & Naomi Zeveloff

 

 

One week into Israel’s war with Gaza this past summer, superstar Rihanna tweeted a photo of an Israeli boy and a Palestinian boy with their arms around each other facing away from the camera: “Let’s pray for peace and a swift end to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict!” she wrote. “Is there any hope?….”

Staged: Ricki Rosen’s photograph meant to depict an Israeli boy and a Palestinian boy in Jerusalem has been reproduced hundreds of times.

Palestinian Leader Accuses Israeli ‘Beast-masters’ for Unleashing Wild Boars

 

Another fantastical accusation is the latest in a long tradition of Muslim leaders’ claim that Israel employs supernatural means to harass its enemies.

By Israel Today Staff

 

If Israel’s antagonists in the region are to be believed, the Jewish state employs all manner of bizarre and even mythical tactics against its foes. The latest, according to Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas, is the unleashing of wild boars upon the fields of Arab farmers.

Wild boar – Israel Today

“Every night, they [Israelis] release wild boars against us,” Abbas said during a conference in Ramallah last Friday. “Why are they doing this to us?”

RELATED:

The accusation was apparently a little too over the top even for Abbas’ own media department, because the official English-language reports from the event omitted all mention of wild boars.

“Muslim sailors arrived in America from 1178,” Erdoğan said at the televised address.

“Columbus mentioned the existence of a mosque on a hill on the Cuban coast,” he added, and said that Ankara was even prepared to build a mosque at the site mentioned by the Genoese explorer. Continue Reading »

Al Jazeera Interviewer: Why Can’t Arab Armies Be More Like Israel?

 

UNBELIEVABLE!: On the flagship Arab media,  Al Jazeera, a TV interviewer admits that Israeli soldiers are not monsters, & in fact are the most humane in the mid-East.

By Israel Today Staff

 

In a development that might shock many, Al-Jazeera has openly admitted that the Israeli army is far more humane than any Arab armed force, and far less cruel than it is typically portrayed by supposedly objective Western media.

Last week, the host of an Al-Jazeera (Arabic) news program publicly questioned why the Syrian army and its Hezbollah allies “don’t they learn from the Israeli army which tries, through great efforts, to avoid shelling areas populated by civilians in Lebanon and Palestine?”

The story was originally uncovered by Middle East analyst and investigative journalist Tom Gross, who has a copy of the Al-Jazeera broadcast over on his website. Continue Reading »

UNRWA Deceives by Insinuating Gaza’s Fuel Shortage is Israel’s Fault

UNRWA purposefully doesn’t mention the Egyptian blockade on Gaza, with their closure of the tunnels that had provided smuggled (stolen?) fuel.

UNRWA also neglects to mention Hamas’ refusal to pay the PA fuel prices, or how Hamas is exploiting Gazans’ suffering to get a much lower price for fuel.

By: Elder of Ziyon

 

You know how UNRWA pretends to be non-political and even-handed?
