VIDEO: How the MSM parrots Palestinian propaganda

VIDEO: How the MSM parrots Palestinian propaganda

“Everyone Agrees”

Richard Landes is a brilliant man who has worked tirelessly for close to two decades to expose the biases and distortions present in worldwide media coverage of the Israel/Palestine conflict. I also count him as a friend.

I’ve written about Landes and his work many times before. Among other things, he is the person who uncovered the media’s compliance in shaping the Muhammed al Durah story into anti-Israel propaganda, and he also coined the phrase “Pallywood.”

Now Landes has put out a new video: “Everyone Agrees”. It is well worth watching, and well worth sending to people who might not be aware of the ways in which the media covers up the fact that Palestinian leaders speak one line when addressing the West in English, and quite a different line in Arabic for their more local audiences:

Everyone Agrees: The BBC and CNN on UNSC Resolution #2334 and Kerry's Speech from Al Durah Project on Vimeo.

Landes includes some backup material to the video here.

It is not just the media but clearly the far left and even the more moderate left that have become so anti-Israel. To me anti-Semitism is not always evident, although sometimes it is pretty obvious. It also has the feeling of that sophomoric angle that progressives take more and more – that urge to shift power from one side to the other whether it makes sense or not. It’s a big reason they cannot define enough “aggrieved” groups to which they search for “oppressors”, distorting facts along the way. You might think they are not interested in the details or anything much deeper than the practice of controlling who has power and how much they have. Same with money.

I guess the only thing that surprises me is in the era of an over abundance of information and channels for that information, so few pause and study and think. They just take sides. The media is especially guilty as they should have the most access to information.

Did the Arabs learn obfuscation and propaganda from Russia? Nobody can lie like that with a straight face, and have absolutely no regard for human life like they do. Like they were separated at birth.

    Taqiyya, namely, permitted lying by Muslims, especially to the kafir aka the non-believer of Islam, has 00s of years Islamic provenance, pre-dating the existence of Russia.

    “Taqiyya is of fundamental importance in Islam. Practically every Islamic sect agrees to it and practices it … We can go so far as to say that the practice of taqiyya is mainstream in Islam, and that those few sects not practicing it diverge from the mainstream … Taqiyya is very prevalent in Islamic politics, especially in the modern era.”
