Vox.com, which purports to “explain” things, has turned its attention to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The results are not pretty. Truth takes a backseat to revisionism and a combination of ignorance and propaganda forces out knowledge.

Here’s the video, but be sure to read the explanation below as to how it misleads:

We reported recently on the murder of Israeli fertility nurse and mother of six Dafna Meir by a Palestinian.

Meir fought back but was stabbed to death in front of her children, as one child tried to help her:

A tear-choked Renana Meir, 17, apologized over her mother’s body on Monday for...

Dafna Meir Israeli Mother Stabbed to death

This has eerie resemblance to the stabbing to death of the Fogel family in 2011, including 6 month old Hadas as she slept in her crib.

Reports indicated that a Palestinian man entered a home in a settlement near Hebron, and stabbed to death a mother in front of her three children....

The trend for the BDS movement is to make demonization of Israel the center of the progressive universe through the theory of “intersectionality.”

The US State Department is criticizing Israel’s proposed “Transparency Law,” suggesting that Israelis should not know when foreign governments are influencing their domestic politics.

If enacted, the current version of the Transparency Law would deem an Israeli Non-Governmental Organization (“NGO”) a foreign agent if it receives more than 50% of its budget...

There is no sadder commentary on why peace is not yet possible than the exploitation of children by Palestinians in the war against Israel.

It’s a lot more than the types of confrontations staged by Bassem Tamimi, where young children are sent to confront Israeli soldiers in the hope of creating a...

This story is almost too unbelievable to be true, but it is true.

Ezra Nawi is not just another Israeli leftist activist. He was one of the most prominent Israeli activists engaged in direct action to interfere with Israeli military activities in Judea and Samaria (the “West Bank”).

In response to a year bookended by Islamist terror attacks in Paris, France has seen a rise in anti-Muslim and anti-Semitic attacks.  If the French/Islamist conflict continues to victimize Jews, as appears increasingly likely, it will further accelerate French Jewry’s demise.

In January the BBC wrote, “France is emerging from one of...
