We have seen various levels of incitement in recent weeks, frequently involving false claims of Israeli murder of Palestinians.

Palestinian knife-attackers who are shot dead frequently are portrayed as the victim.

The most infamous example of such incitement was when Mahmoud Abbas claimed in a televised speech that a 13-year old Arab boy...

There is a standard fixture at anti-Israel BDS rallies and events — a map purporting to show loss of Palestinian land to Israel.

But it’s a completely misleading and false map.

Yet MSNBC used it on air today — a demonstration of how Big Lies become truth when repeated often enough:

In the recent spate of knifings, firebombings and rock attacks, the international press has done a masterful job of portraying the Palestinian attackers as the victims through misleading headlines.

This is consistent with the international media bias seen during the 2014 Gaza conflict.

The international press plays a critical role in instigating attacks...

CNN’s Ashleigh Banfield spoke to Democratic strategist Robert Zimmerman about the upcoming Democratic primary debate yesterday.

They considered the unthinkable possibility that Bernie Sanders will bring up Hillary’s email scandal, which Banfield quickly suggested isn’t really a scandal.

Tragic deaths seem to dredge up the worst kind of discourse from liberal punditry.

The national conversation, particularly in regards to calls for increased gun control tends to go something like this:

“Someone broke a law.”

“WE MUST MAKE MORE LAWS. WE MUST DO SOMETHING.”

While riding the Sunday talk show circuit, Hillary Clinton encountered what should’ve been a brutal segment on her long-standing history of philosophical changes.
