This is your media. This is your media on Hamas.

This is your media. This is your media on Hamas.

Ignoring the obvious.

Because I am a glutton for punishment, I read the anti-Zionist Mondoweiss website.

I do it, so you don’t have to.

One of the authors there posted this video put out by the Israeli Foreign Ministry, apparently one in a series, as if it were a bad thing.

Seems pretty much on target to me.

[NOTE – The video was taken down after furious complaints from the international media, including The NY Times. Here is a version captured by another outfit]

This comes, of course, in anticipation of a hit job on Israel by the UN Human Rights Commission in a report to be released this week regarding the 2014 Gaza conflict.

In that conflict, the media played a key role in covering up Hamas use of civilians as shields:

For example, this tweet exposing Hamas’ use of Gaza’s main hospital, Al-Shifa, was deleted:

As was this article by a Palestinian journalist about his interrogation down the hall from the operating room in the same hospital:

Liberation Magazine You must leave Gaza Shifa Hospital removed

Liberation Magazine You must leave Gaza Shifa Hospital

This Finnish reporter accurately reported rocket fire from near Al-Shifa, but then complained when people reported about her report:


Key disclosures were made only after reporters left Gaza, but by that time the narrative set by the media had been set:

On balance, I think the Israeli MFA video is too kind. A.F. Branco captured the media bias precisely in this cartoon last summer:

Media For Hamas

Thanks, Prof., for slogging through the sewers of the Israel hating interwebs, and for bringing us the balancing coverage you do.

You really are pretty unique on the blog-0-sphere.

The only thing more despicable than Islamist terrorists are their apologists.

Professor, don’t you have any sway with fellow Jews? How can your people tolerate the left and actually vote for these liars? I’m an old guy but in my lifetime there has been no bigger enemy to Israel that obama and the clinton’s.

Stay after it Prof!

I’m sure this is bringing coals to Newcastle, but I caught the following news program for the first time this past weekend and was impressed by it.
