How Does the Media Relate to Anti-Semitism?
MAY 30, 2013 15:06
BY SIMON PLOSKER
This opinion piece by HR Managing Editor Simon Plosker is republished from The Times of Israel.
Simon Plosker presents at the Global Forum

During the 4th International Conference of the Global Forum for Combating Antisemitism, which has been taking place this week in Jerusalem, I was asked to give a short presentation to the Working Group on Anti-Semitism on the Internet and in the Media.
http://mfa.gov.il/MFA/AboutTheMinistry/Conferences-Seminars/Pages/GFCA_4th_International_Conference_May_2013.aspx

HonestReporting’s primary brief is to deal with anti-Israel media bias. Clearly not all criticism of Israel is illegitimate even if we sometimes may not like what our critics have to say.

As the criticism has moved into areas of delegitimisation and demonization, so the boundaries of acceptable discourse have also shifted and, with it, we have increasingly witnessed the appearance of anti-Semitism in the mainstream media.

If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it is probably a duck. And for most Jews they know anti-Semitism when they see it. Arguably, however, one of the problems of contemporary anti-Semitism is the failure of the Jewish people to collectively define and codify what it is. Today there exists the European Union Monitoring Centre on Racism and Xenophobia (EUMC) Working Definition of Anti-Semitism that also includes a section outlining where criticism of Israel could be construed as anti-Semitic.
http://www.european-forum-on-antisemitism.org/working-definition-of-antisemitism/

But this Working Definition, created in 2004, is clearly not referred to by the mainstream media and in the absence of any other codified definition accepted by a body as large and credible as the European Union, it’s the best there is at this time.

Anti-Semitism is a serious charge and throwing that accusation against a media outlet or an individual journalist or cartoonist should not be taken lightly.

And herein lies the problem. In the past, the anti-Semitism of a hate sheet such as the Nazi Der Sturmer was clear-cut. In the present, the disgusting incitement and Jew hatred so common in so much of the Arab media is also blatant (yet still brushed under the carpet by Western politicians and media).

It goes without saying that no Western mainstream media outlet is going to openly declare itself to be proudly anti-Semitic and any newspaper or individual judged to hold such beliefs would find themselves out in the cold.

I would argue, however, that many media outlets are either unwilling or incapable of recognizing anti-Semitic tropes, particularly when it comes to the treatment of Israel.

A recent case study that I noted at the Global Forum was that of the grotesque Sunday Times cartoon by Gerald Scarfe that depicted Israeli PM Netanyahu building a wall on the bodies of Palestinians using blood for the mortar.
http://honestreporting.com/cementing-hate-on-holocaust-memorial-day/

The cartoon screamed “blood libel” to many of us. The initial reaction of the Sunday Times was…

Al-Dura Wasn’t Even Hurt: Truth Set to be Revealed
An Israeli government report is set to be released promising to finally expose the real story behind one of the most significant anti-Israel media libels. Read more...
http://honestreporting.com/al-dura-wasnt-even-hurt-truth-set-to-be-revealed/
In what could be a significant turn of events the Jerusalem Post reports:

Not only was 12-year-old Gazan Muhammad al-Dura not killed by IDF fire in 2000 – he was not even hurt.

That was the preliminary finding of a special commit- tee formed several years ago by Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon and headed by Brig.- Gen. (res.) Yossi Kuperwasser, the former head of the Research and Analysis Division of the IDF Military Intelligence Directorate, and the current director-general of the Strategic Affairs Ministry.
In the meantime, 13 years have passed, during which various and sundry conspiracy theories have been suggest- ed, including claims that the boy was never even injured.

A few days ago, MK Nachman Shai met with Ya’alon to give him a copy of his new book, Media War Reaching for Hearts and Minds , which deals with the role of media in current military conflicts, including the Dura affair. Ya’alon then surprised Shai by saying that an investigation carried out by Israel shows that Dura was never hurt.

This theory has been circulating on the Internet for a few years already, but this was the first time that an Israeli defense minister was stating so publicly.

Today, Dura should be about 25-years-old, alive and kicking somewhere (unless he was killed later in a separate incident).

Kuperwasser confirmed the committee’s conclusion that that Dura had not been hurt at all and that the video clip, which was filmed by France 2 TV and aired around the world, had indeed been staged. This means that the France 2 TV channel report was erroneous, perhaps even knowingly.

Kuperwasser added that the full results of the investigation would be ready in the near future, and that most of the work had already been completed.

To recall, Al-Dura was the “poster boy” of the so-called Second Intifada and the libel of Israeli responsibility for his death and the iconic imagery of the incident have had a major impact on subsequent events and Israel’s image in the media.

We believe that we must never give up trying to find out the truth, even 13 years after the incident, and the same applies to all of those times when Israel has been falsely accused in the media.

We look forward to seeing the full report in the near future and to see if the mainstream media and France 2 in particular, will finally acknowledge their part in propagating a libel.

Media Museum to Honor Hamas Terrorists
Washington DC's Newseum can't tell the difference between terrorists and genuine news reporters as it prepares to honor two Hamas "journalists." Register your protest now.
http://honestreporting.com/media-museum-to-honor-hamas-terrorists/
The Washington DC-based Newseum, a museum dedicated to the media, will be holding a ceremony to honor those journalists who have been killed in the last year in the course of covering the news.

Included in this list of 84 names are Mahmoud Al-Kumi and Hussam Salama.

Back in November 2012 during Israel’s Operation Pillar of Defense, the IDF targeted Mahmoud Al-Kumi and Hussam Salama.

The IDF Blog explains that they were:
http://www.idfblog.com/2012/11/29/how-hamas-and-islamic-jihad-
use-journalism-as-a-cover-for-terrorism/
Hamas operatives and cameramen for Hamas’ Al-Aqsa television network, which regularly features programming that encourages and praises attacks on Israeli civilians. … Palestinian media reported that the two men were indeed Hamas operatives.

Faced with serious accusations of Al-Aqsa TV’s connections to terrorism, the head of the network, Mohammad Thouraya, denied that Al-Aqsa was the voice of Hamas — a hard fact to deny, since the channel is financed and controlled by Hamas — but he did admit that his employees were “all part of the resistance.”

Being “part of the resistance”, in other words, could mean that those carrying a camera during the day could be carrying rockets at night.
Despite heavy criticism, the Newseum is sticking to its guns and has issued a statement which included the following:

Hussam Salama and Mahmoud Al-Kumi were cameramen in a car clearly marked “TV.” The Committee to Protect Journalists, Reporters Without Borders and The World Association of Newspapers and News Publishers all consider these men journalists killed in the line duty.
As many commentators have pointed out, both Hamas and Al-Aqsa TV are considered to be terrorist entities by the US government. Why should terrorists be protected by virtue of marking “TV” on a car or carrying a camera? A real journalist reports on a conflict and does not actively take part in it. And can a Hamas propaganda outfit that promotes anti-Semitism and violence towards Jews and Israelis really be considered a legitimate media outfit?

HR CEO Joe Hyams commented:

Honoring these two terrorists is an insult to the real journalists who have tragically lost their lives in the cause of news gathering. It is profoundly disturbing that a respected U.S. institution dedicated to documenting the media cannot tell the difference between a genuine journalist and a terrorist.

The Newseum should be ashamed to refer to Hamas’s Al-Aqsa TV as a credible media outlet and has set the bar so low as to render the term “media” almost meaningless.

If you agree, send your complaint to the Newseum and let it know that there is a difference between honoring journalists and terrorists - info@newseum.org

SUCCESS: BBC Corrects Syrian Propaganda Headline

In response to your complaints, the BBC updates and issues a correction to a headline that parrotted Syrian propaganda associating Israel with terrorists.
We pointed out that the headline was taking Syrian propaganda at face value, making it appear as if Israel was associated with terrorists. The BBC has responded with a new headline and a correction:

Correction (7 May 2013): The headline of this report has been amended to make clear that the claim that Israeli air strikes had been co-ordinated with the rebels was made by Syrian officials.

Stephen Hawking’s Media Mess
http://honestreporting.com/stephen-hawkings-media-mess/
MAY 9, 2013 14:51
BY SIMON PLOSKER
This opinion piece by HR Managing Editor, Simon Plosker, is reproduced from The Times of Israel.

Professor Stephen Hawking’s decision to boycott Israel’s President’s Conference left a nasty taste in the mouth. It wasn’t only the fact that the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement was able to claim a significant victory in their campaign to delegitimize Israel. It was also the way in which the story developed throughout the day in such a way as to snatch what looked like a slam dunk exposé of both the BDS movement and The Guardian.

For an Israel advocate, the contradictory information flying around the Internet appeared to present an opportunity to expose anti-Israel bias and misinformation. Thanks to a University of Cambridge statement claiming that Hawking had canceled his trip due to health reasons and not due to political motivations, both The Guardian, which had published the story first, and the boycott movement appeared to be promoting disinformation.

Here was a perfect opportunity to hit back at Israel’s detractors. Indeed, some people were quick off the mark to publish a take-down of those involved in what looked like a false anti-Israel slur.

However, only a few hours later, it was our side that was backing down following the retraction of the University of Cambridge’s original statement and a confirmation that Hawking was, in fact, a boycotter.

Why Did the BBC Pull Jerusalem Documentary?
APRIL 30, 2013 15:21
BY SIMON PLOSKER
The Times of Israel reports on a storm that has erupted following the BBC’s last-minute decision to drop a documentary that questions the extent of the Jewish exile after the Roman destruction of Jerusalem in 70 CE. According to TOI:

The film “Exile: A Myth Unearthed,” which theorizes that many modern-day Palestinians could be partially descended from Jews who never left the region, was due to be shown in modified form by the BBC last week, but was pulled from the schedule at the last moment.

Explaining how the film had been re-titled “Jerusalem: an Archaeological Mystery Story,” filmmaker Ilan Ziv alleged BBC sources had said a freelance editor hired to re-cut the film called it “propaganda.”

Ziv has criticized the BBC’s decision on his own blog but I was able to procure a copy of the original film, which is available from the National Film Board of Canada, in order to make my own judgment. This, particularly in light of some accusations that the BBC had succumbed to “unnamed pressure groups,” which is usually a thinly veiled reference to “Jews” or “Zionists.”

Four observations, having watch the full unedited version:

The challenge to the Jewish historical and theological narrative of an exile after the destruction of the Second Temple does not negate the fact that a continuous and uninterrupted Jewish presence existed in the Land of Israel from that period to the present day. If anything, it confirms it.
Questioning the Jewish or Israeli narrative has never been an issue for the BBC (or anyone else for that matter) in the past. What makes this particular documentary too controversial for the BBC?
The thesis that some Palestinians may actually be the descendants of Jews who lived in what is today Israel and converted to Islam centuries ago may be controversial and unappealing to both Jews and Palestinians but it is not the first time that this has been suggested.
Indeed, could such a theory be more damaging to a Palestinian national movement that has consistently sought to deny Jewish history and claims to the land?
Was the BBC, in fact, more concerned at upsetting anti-Israel elements by showing a film with such a heavy concentration on Jewish history in the Land of Israel?

The BBC does not have a history of pulling content due to the concerns of Israel or the UK’s Jewish community. Quite the opposite in fact. This particular documentary also focuses on Israel’s War of Independence and paints a picture of Palestinian villages erased from the map by Israel as a result of the war. While this may not be comfortable viewing for supporters of Israel, it is certainly no worse than other critical pieces that have appeared on the BBC.

One suspects that the outcry that is taking place is not only a result of the BBC’s incompetence but also driven by people who have not viewed the film but have rather, already jumped to conclusions as to what it contains and those who are already assuming that “Zionists” are responsible for getting it pulled.

A look at the comments section of the Radio Times (the BBC’s listings magazine) gives some examples:

Perhaps the film will be shown eventually in a re-edited form. In the meantime, we await a credible response from the BBC as to why it did not appear last week when originally scheduled.

BBC Terminology: Mitigating Terror
APRIL 30, 2013 11:06
BY SIMON PLOSKER
This morning, an Israeli was stabbed to death by a Palestinian terrorist at the Tapuah junction in the West Bank. As reported by The Times of Israel:

The attacker stabbed the Israeli, grabbed his weapon, and according to some accounts shot him at close range. He then fired at nearby border police, who returned fire and succeeded in subduing him. The victim, who was said to be about 30 years old, was declared dead at the scene after MDA paramedics’ resuscitation efforts failed. The attacker was evacuated to Beilinson hospital in Petah Tikva in moderate condition.

Now look at how the BBC reports on the attack:
The opening paragraph:

An Israeli settler has been killed by a Palestinian at a bus stop in the northern West Bank, police say.

Notice how the Israeli victim is described as a “settler” in both the headline and the article. If the BBC is prepared to use politicized terminology to describe an Israeli civilian then presumably, shouldn’t it also describe the Palestinian in similar terms for consistency?
.
While the BBC should refer to the Palestinian as a terrorist, it is noteworthy that the attacker is not even referred to as a “militant” or “activist.” He is simply a Palestinian. Yet, by referring to the Israeli as a “settler,” the BBC is already acknowledging that the Palestinian must have been motivated to carry out the attack for nationalist rather than criminal reasons.

Evidently, murdering someone for nationalistic reasons is not an act of terrorism, extremism or militancy.

The BBC’s indifference to Israeli victims of terror who happen to live in the West Bank reached its nadir in March 2011 when a mother, father and three of their children, including a three-month old baby, were stabbed to death by Palestinian terrorists in the West Bank settlement of Itamar.

Looks like nothing has changed at the BBC then.
WHERE’S THE CONSISTENCY?
Contrast the above with another piece of breaking news covered by the BBC at exactly the same time:

BBC Terminology: Mitigating Terror
APRIL 30, 2013 11:06
BY SIMON PLOSKER
Contrast the above with another piece of breaking news covered by the BBC at exactly the same time:
The report states:
A Palestinian militant has been killed in an Israeli air strike on Gaza City.

Officials from Hamas, which governs the Gaza Strip, said the victim was Haytham al-Misshal, a member of a Salafist jihadist group.

So while the BBC is prepared to acknowledge that membership of a jihadist group is sufficient to be referred to as a “militant,” the act of actually murdering an Israeli in a politically motivated attack is not.

Take action now and demand that the BBC acknowledges terror and treat all Israeli victims of terror as human beings. Send your complaints through the BBC Complaints website – www.bbc.co.uk/complaints. For detailed instructions on how to navigate the BBC Complaints website, click here.

Media Overplays Airport Security Issue
The sanctioning of Israeli security officials checking the emails of suspicious passengers at Ben-Gurion Airport is given a sinister spin in some of the media.
Just this week, en route to Israel through a British airport, I observed a young family being held up at security. Despite the fact that he had a newborn infant strapped to his chest in a baby carrier and was accompanying his wife and young daughter, the young man was subjected to multiple pat downs.

Struggling to hand over the baby while juggling with items of clothing and luggage, this was clearly an inconvenient and unpleasant experience being meted out to a family that should not have raised any security concerns. Finally it was discovered that metallic buttons on the baby carrier had set off the security scanner alarm.

I mention this as just one example of how, in a post-9/11 world, all of us have been affected by the increasing levels of security checks at airports.
But it seems that Israel’s airport security procedures are the only ones that can induce almost righteous indignation in the media.

As the Associated Press reported: “Israel’s attorney general on Wednesday upheld a practice to allow security personnel to read people’s email accounts when they arrive at the airport, arguing it prevents militants from entering the country.”

Cue dramatic headlines that overstated the story to the point of being misleading as well as adding a sinister backdrop to the story. For example, this headline in The Australian:

Why Are Only Jews Referred to as Terrorists in the Media?
APRIL 10, 2013 14:17
http://honestreporting.com/why-are-only-jews-referred-to-as-terrorists-in-the-media/
BY SIMON PLOSKER
HonestReporting has long campaigned for the international media to call terrorism exactly what it is instead of using judgment-neutral terminology, such as “militants”,”extremists”, “fighters” or “gunmen.”

Yaakov “Jack” Teitel, a US-born Israeli resident of the West Bank was sentenced on Tuesday to two consecutive life terms in prison for murdering a Palestinian taxi driver in Jerusalem and a Palestinian shepherd near Hebron. He was also sentenced for other attacks including against a left-wing Israeli professor and messianic Jews. He also attacked a police station during a gay pride parade. These are only a few of Teitel’s terrorist and criminal activities.

Sign up to HonestReporting now and never miss our breaking news alerts!

The Israeli media, including the JPost, YNet, and Times of Israel had no problem referring to him as a “Jewish terrorist” showing an impressive consistency in the use of language. They recognized that Teitel’s hate-filled ideologically and politically motivated ideology fits the definition of terrorism. This demonstrates that the use of the word “terrorism” or “terrorist” or “terror” does not have to be a loaded term applied only to Palestinians murdering Jews for religious or political motivations.

It’s just that the example of Teitel is, thankfully, extremely rare and certainly in contrast to the Palestinian side.

So having avoided referring to Palestinian terrorists as just that, how did the international media cover the story?

In the BBC Gaza office, that feeling was most tangibly felt on the first day of this conflict when Omar, the 11-month-old son of our cameraman Jihad Misharawi, was killed when a missile hit his home. It was a pointless, terrible tragedy that deeply affected Jihad’s colleagues who live and work here in these testing conditions.
Indeed, the BBC in its coverage, claimed Omar almost as one of its own, making sure to mention him in dispatches as the victim of an Israeli attack without even considering any other possibility:

PA Lockup on New Prisoner Death
The PA locks down the media after a prisoner dies in a Palestinian jail.
Had Ayman Samarah been found dead in an Israeli prison cell, he’d be just as famous as Arafat Jaradat, who was all over the news last week.

But Samarah died in a Palestinian Authority prison cell, not an Israeli one.
The PA wouldn’t allow Palestinian journalists to cover the story. Imagine that.
According to the Jerusalem Post‘s Khaled Abu Toameh, Samarah was being held in Jericho jail, charged with assault. Family members said the 40-year-old Samarah had diabetes and high blood pressure.
The PA is investigating the death, but Toameh raises a lot of questions:

NPR: Israel Starving Gaza of Its Resources
MARCH 5, 2013 10:07
BY PESACH BENSON
A blockade is only as strong as its weakest link.

Until recently, all kinds of goods passed through Egypt’s Rafah’s crossing, through smuggling tunnels, and even the Kerem Shalom crossing with Israel.

But for Hamas, the situation took a turn for the worse (more on that below) prompting it to kick out the PA-appointed business operating the Palestinian side of the crossing and replacing it with its own management (all described by YNet).

Which brings us to National Public Radio.

In a dispatch from Gaza (transcript and audio), NPR’s Larry Abramson talked to plenty of Palestinians claiming they’re besieged; he also quoted (and confirmed) what Israeli officials had to say. But he inexplicably overlooked the Hamas take-over of Kerem Shalom, and at the end of the report, Abramson had the gall to state in his own voice:

Two pounds of strawberries sells for under a dollar; they can cost three times that much in Israeli cities. And that, of course, is the point of the Israeli sanctions — to starve this Hamas-run territory of resources.

The blockade is unfortunately necessary for Israel because Hamas hasn’t abandoned its goal of destroying Israel. It’s not about grinding Gaza’s exports into the dust.

Egypt began flooding smuggling tunnels with sewage to halt the flow of weapons entering the Sinai. And Israel closed the Kerem Shalom crossing following last week’s rocket fire. But with money from smuggling taxes nosediving, Hamas tried to change the equation by simply taking over Kerem Shalom. As HonestReporting went to press, the Times of Israel reported that Hamas backed down and Kerem Shalom has re-opened.

Today’s Times of Israel also reports Hamas is forcing Gazans to obtain a “visa” to travel to the West Bank or Israel, though there’s no word yet on possible fees.

Israel won’t cooperate with Hamas-linked entities. If Hamas remained at Kerem Shalom, Israel would have had nobody on the Palestinian side to coordinate security issues at the sensitive crossing. On various occasions, Kerem Shalom has been directly attacked by suicide bombers, Sinai jihadis, and mortar fire.

The power struggle threatened to unravel . . .

Inmate Death: What the Media Chose to Ignore

When is a terrorist not a terrorist? Apparently, when it doesn't fit the media's narrative, like the coverage of Arafat Jaradat, who died in an Israeli prison this week.

Jaradat, a member of the al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade, was arrested for throwing stones that wounded an Israeli civilian.
Five days later, he died of a possible cardiac arrest.
The death became an international story when Palestinian officials claimed the autopsy report indicated he died as a result of torture. Israeli officials countered that the autopsy was inconclusive and what the Palestinians were calling signs of “torture” – bruises on his chest and broker ribs – may have been efforts to revive Jaradat after his heart failure. Regardless of how he died, the media has an obligation to tell the truth about who he was, not to cherry-pick elements of his biography to give him a particular image. .

Gaza Rocket Strikes Israel…But What’s the Photo?
We couldn’t really have wished for a more accurate or appropriate headline than this from the Irish Independent:
A rocket from Gaza hits Israel. So why is there a photo of Israeli soldiers firing tear gas at Palestinian protestors?
And what would be the most appropriate photo to illustrate this story? A Gazan rocket launching crew? A photo of the site of a rocket strike? Even if photos were not available to illustrate this specific incident, there are plenty of relevant stock photos in circulation.
Instead, the Irish Independent published this accompanying image:

NY Daily News Disinfects BDS
Newspaper staff-ed slams BDS leader after giving him a platform.

Here’s something I never saw before: After Omar Barghouti was given op-ed space in the NY Daily News to explain the anti-Israel boycott-divestment-sanctions movement (BDS for short), the paper itself slammed Barghouti with a staff-ed.
It’s one thing to present dueling op-eds. But responding with a sharply worded staff editorial — which represents the paper’s official view — is much stronger. I also liked the staff-ed’s style. Bloggers would refer to the point-by-point refutations as a fisking.

One Day, Three Major Successes for HR

We'd like to share the successes of the past 24 hours with you, our subscribers, who have played such a key role in helping us to achieve the following:

Financial Times Middle East Editor Apologizes
Within only a couple of hours from the release of our condemnation of a tweet from the Financial Times’s Middle East and North Africa correspondent Borzou Daragahi, he has apologized.
Darahagi had tweeted the heinous conspiracy theory that Israel had bribed Bulgaria to blame Hezbollah for a bus bombing at Burgas airport that had killed five Israeli tourists. Thanks to our exposure and your complaints, Daragahi has repented. See the update at the beginning of our original communique...

UN Cuts Ties With False Photo Tweeter
In March 2012, HonestReporting exposed Khulood Badawi as an employee of the United Nations following her tweet of a photo falsely claiming to depict a Palestinian child victim of an Israeli airstrike.
We launched a petition signed by thousands of our readers and Israel's Ambassador to the UN, Ron Prosor, publicly demanded Badawi's firing.
It's taken some time but finally the UN, following an investigation, has taken the appropriate action. Read more...

HR Stars in Jerusalem Report Feature Article
The latest print edition of the Jerusalem Report runs a feature article “Watchdogs on the Media Battlefield” with substantial input from and focus on the work of HonestReporting.
The article interviews HR Managing Editor Simon Plosker, whose photo working at his desk in HR’s International HQ in Jerusalem takes up a two-page spread.

It is gratifying that the Jerusalem Report has chosen to highlight the important work of media monitoring organizations such as HonestReporting. Beyond that, the article expands on the context behind our work. Read more...

Thanks to all of our subscribers for helping to make this success happen!

British publisher apologizes for wiping Israel off map
January 4, 2013
(JTA) -- A British publishing firm reportedly apologized for replacing Israel with an entity called “Occupied Palestine” in a textbook.
According to The Commentator, a British website and blogging platform, the apology came in an unsigned email from the publisher, Garnet Education.

“Unfortunately the map was mislabelled ‘Occupied Palestine,’ " the email said. "This was a serious editorial error and was subsequently corrected. The book in question has not been in print for several years.”

The email further said, “Please accept our sincere apologies for any offence caused but rest assured that this was a genuine mistake and in no way reflects any Garnet Education policy.”

The textbook, “Skills in English Writing -- Level 1,” contains a map of the Middle East, labeling and identifying the various countries as part of an exercise. The map, however, makes no mention of Israel, replacing it with the words "Occupied Palestine."

An article about the book, which is intended for teaching English as a second language, appeared on the website of Israel Today, an Israeli daily.

According to The Commentator, the book is used by teachers across the United Kingdom and beyond.

Israeli Children’s Trauma Ignored by Washington Post
by Simon Plosker
The Washington Post has published a story examining the trauma suffered by Gazan children as a result of conflict. The scene is set with a vivid and emotive opening:

Fatima still dreams about Ahmed. Sometimes they’re playing with toys as they used to do. But in other dreams, she’s looking over the edge of the balcony at her brother’s smashed and bloodied body, his pink brain spilling from his skull, her father screaming through his tears.

Ahmed was 7 when he was killed by an Israeli airstrike during the 2008 Israeli invasion of Gaza. Fatima was 8 at the time — but that was “old enough to remember,” said her father, Osama Mohamed Qurtan.

And herein lies the fundamental problem with the story – the description of an Israeli “invasion” paints a picture of Gazan children suffering as a result of Israeli malevolence. Indeed, later in the article is the following:

Gaza was attacked, they say, for the same reason Israel struck in 2008 — to kill Palestinians and seize more Palestinian land. (Israel says its warplanes carry out precision strikes on carefully identified terrorist targets.)

A short sentence in parentheses is all that Israel’s narrative warrants according to the Washington Post. This article could not be any more one-sided. Nowhere is there any reference to the thousands of rockets fired at Israeli targets from Gaza. While the writer refers to Gaza experiencing two wars in four years, what about Sderot and the surrounding areas of southern Israel that have experienced barely a day of quiet during the past decade? Israeli children have been brought up experiencing almost daily alerts that give them some 15 seconds to take cover or run for a bomb shelter.

Hamas: 25 Facts For 25 Years
Much of the media covered the weekend’s events in Gaza, where Hamas leader Khaled Meshal commemorated his terror organization’s 25th anniversary.

What is Hamas really celebrating? Here are 25 facts to remind you:

1. Hamas takes its name from an acronym that means “Islamic Resistance Movement” in Arabic.

2. Hamas refuses to recognize the State of Israel’s right to exist as an independent, sovereign nation, and is totally opposed to any agreement or arrangement that would recognize its right to exist. At the beginning of its charter there is a quotation attributed to Hassan Al-Bana, the Muslim Brotherhood’s founder, that “Israel will arise and continue to exist until Islam wipes it out, as it wiped out what went before.”

3. Hamas is committed to jihad. Its charter stresses the importance of jihad (holy war) as the main means for the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) to achieve its goals: An uncompromising jihad must be waged against Israel. Jihad is the personal duty of every Muslim.
4. Hamas is an anti-Semitic organization. According to its charter, the Jewish people have only negative traits and are presented as planning to take over the world. The charter uses myths taken from classical European and Islamic-based anti-Semitism.

HONEST REPORTING Defending Israel from Media Bias

Irish Newspaper: How to Boycott Israel
The Irish Times doesn't just report on boycott calls, it helps promote them. The Irish Congress of Trade Unions has issued a call to ban imports from what it calls “illegal Israeli settlements”. The Irish Times reports on the story, stating that the head of the ICTU is calling for an “urgent meeting” with the Irish Minister for Foreign Affairs “to seek an immediate and effective intervention by the Irish Government in light of the recent conflict in the Gaza Strip.”
