Scary photograph

Israel/Palestine

at Didi Remez’s blog about New York Jewish Week giving space to right-wing Jewish extremist group:

New York Jewish Week (NYJW) …[has] just given slander space to a recently exposed fraud. In a column labeled “special” to the NYJW, David Bedein of the “Israel Resource News Agency” (IRNA) regurgitates Im Tirzu’s copiously debunked allegations, adding a few flourishes of his own…

only this photo of Samuel Sokol, a senior “journalist” at IRNA who shares bylines with Bedein, should perhaps have been enough to prompt even a junior editor at the NYJW to take a look into the veracity of the facts he was publishing. The banner in the background reads “We are all Kahana; Kahana was right.”

    David Bedein is a former social worker who reinvented himself as a right-wing Zionist propaganda hack about twenty years ago, when he opened the “Israel Resource Center”, renting space in Jerusalem’s Beit Agron building – in which many foreign correspondents have offices. At some point (I guess the foreign journalists weren’t buying any of his hasbara), he decide to call his propaganda clearing house a “news agency” and start peddling his “research” and “reporting” directly to willing or ignorant media outlets in the US. He is not a journalist and his outfit is not a news agency. Last I heard, he was living on the settlement of Efrat.

      Thanks for the tip. It is so difficult to keep track of the “sources” that come out of Israel.
