Where is MSM on Hebron story?

on 17 Comments

Where’s the MSM on the fact that the Hebron Fund is having a fundraiser for illegal colonies at Citi Field?  It’s a joke.  If a Palestinian group were bringing in the equivalent of Noam Arnon…well, he wouldn’t even get in the country. But the event would be shut down by the host organization and the IRS would be all over it. Adalah:

In 1990, Noam Arnon, who is to be honored at the dinner, called three Israelis who were convicted of killing three Arabs and maiming two Palestinian mayors in car bombings “heroes.”

    We need to email them these Monday links:

    “Settler Rabbi publishes “The complete guide to killing non-Jews””
    link to z.pe
    Ma’an News Agency: “Settler rabbi authors guidelines on killing gentiles”
    link to z.pe
    Haaretz: “West Bank rabbi: Jews can kill Gentiles who threaten Israel”
    link to z.pe

    I’ll put the email address in the next link because of WordPress’ restriction.

    How do you expect them to criticize such an organization when the MSM itself is complicit and the power is concentrated in the hands of five media giants?

      The “…five media giants…”,

      Are affectionately known as the ‘Big Five’ in D.C. lingo.

    called three Israelis who were convicted of killing three Arabs and maiming two Palestinian mayors in car bombings “heroes.”

    Will the killers’ early release be decried in the same manner that Samir Quntar’s release was decried despite his serving 30 years in prison?

    How about Samuel Sheinbein who killed a man in Maryland, hacked the body into pieces and put the parts in a garbage bag only to flee to Israel and escape extradition?

    He will be eligible for parole in 2013.

    There is NO justice in the world.

    You’re asking for the impossible, Phil.

    Like asking Chris ‘caffeine’ Mathews to critique coffee.

      Or fashionable hair cuts. Or, apparently, journalistic integrity.

    Well, it didn’t take very long for this to happen:

    I think this qualifies for tragic comedy.

      Well, not for profound classical tragedy, more like for Family Guy. Ain’t it interesting how cartoons on surf channel and the Daily Show are the only acceptable ways
      to get blocked information to the masses? It’s also interesting how many comedians on the Comedy channel have said directly or indirectly that they have no sacred cows
      just don’t “fuck with the Jews.” You can have a career as a stand up comedian, just so long as you leave any political satire regarding Israel and the Jewish personna in the USA–to Jews. It’s like the Sherman anti-trust act applies to all business industries except the insurance and finance/monetary policy industries.

    Witty would question why you seek to take away the rights of a Jew to kill Arabs and be racist!

    How dare you!

    I response to your title – probably asleep or at an AIPAC conference.
