Howard Stern accuses Roger Waters of anti-Semitism and says Palestine was a “shithole” before Jews got there in an ugly rant on his radio show
Fadi Alloun’s killing in occupied East Jerusalem Sunday appears to be an execution by Israeli police of the 18-year-old as he was chased by a mob of Jewish settlers, two weeks after 18-year-old Hadeel al-Hashlamoun was killed in occupied Hebron in an “extrajudicial execution.”
Israel is “a country in a grim mood on the eve of a Jewish holiday,” the Israel-centric New York Times reports on the latest wave of violence. And the paper has not one word about Israeli violence against Palestinians. All the perpetrators are Palestinian.
When NYT editorial blames breakdown of peace process on Palestinians, it lumps “terrorism” and “intifadas” as though the act of rebellion against occupation is a crime. As for Israeli crimes, it covers Israeli massacres with the term “military clashes”
Why are New York Times reporters committed to parroting Israeli propaganda re the cherry tomato when the newspaper can’t cover the “extrajudicial execution” by the country of an 18-year-old Palestinian woman at a checkpoint?
Author Lillian Rosengarten just completed a wrenching trip to the country of her birth Germany, speaking on the subject, “A Jew Against Zionism.” The Israeli embassy tried to shut her down
If the murdered Hadeel Hashlamoun had been Jewish, the New York Times would be writing about her every day. But #PalestinianLivesDon’tMatter.
According to National Public Radio it’s one thing to throw a brick against oppression 36 years ago in New York City and another to throw a stone today against oppression in Palestine.
“Israel Acts to Combat Violence in Jerusalem” is The New York Times headline. It ought to be: “Palestinians continue to fight back against military occupation of Palestine.”
The conversation on Palestine is moving forward, the poet Remi Kanazi says. “But I don’t think it’s going to be me and Bill Kristol at the New York Times. If it were that way tomorrow, it would be because I would be doing something wrong.”
NPR, Bloomberg, and the New Yorker all run sharply critical pieces of the Israel lobby group AIPAC, a signal that its power is in eclipse. And The New Yorker calls out Chuck Schumer for his “extraordinary” identification as the “guardian” of Israel.
The New York Times and New York Review of Books have published big important pieces describing Jewish terrorism in Israel and its occupied territories, but both pieces are romantic, and propose to save Zionism and Israel from this inherent element.
The conflict is now central to the American left, as indicated by Haymarket’s six titles on Palestine in its fall 2015 list of books
In The New Yorker, Anthony Lane says that Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn and other anti-Zionists are anti-Semitic, and outside a Jewish socialist tradition, because they endorse Hamas and Hezbollah’s violent resistance to occupation. Liberal twaddle.
The New York Times was honest about a large factor in the Iran Deal: how many Congresspeople who oppose the deal are Jewish. The debate over the foreign policy breakthrough has often seemed like an inside-Jewish discussion.
Articles on the aftermath of the Iran Deal say the “Jewish community” will be active in the next political cycle, a reference to big Jewish donors who oppose the deal and want retribution for those who backed it. But most American Jews support the Iran Deal, even if they’re not wielding influence.
NYT’s Isabel Kershner fails to interview human rights law expert on Israel’s use of “live fire” on Palestinian stonethrowers, and notes 12 Palestinians were killed by Israeli soldiers only in last paragraph
In Sandy Tolan’s new book, Children of the Stone, there’s no attempt at false “balance,” no endeavor to spend equal time on the Israeli side or make their situation seem as bad as—or worse than—the Palestinian reality in order to get the “non-biased” stamp of approval.
Netanyahu’s American lobby has been discredited and smashed. Rabbi Shmuley Boteach compares its stand against the Iran deal to Masada, a mass suicide. Victorious Democrats must now begin a debate over Palestinians’ rights.
People are openly counting Jewish vote in Congress on Iran Deal. So far 15 in favor, 9 against, 4 to announce. We grant Jews greater influence because of the Jewish connection to Israel and the Jewish organizations pressuring them, saying it’s anti-Semitic to support the deal.
Jennifer Rubin says Democrats have turned against Israel and Jonathan Chait says that the Israel lobby blew the Iran Deal and was never very powerful. They are both wrong. The lobby is alive and well, and split between them.
Rabbi Shmuley Boteach says he can’t trust his old friend Sen. Cory Booker after he announced his support for the Iran Deal, and the Washington Post says Israeli PM Netanyahu screwed the Israel lobby when he decided to interfere in US politics by speaking to Congress against the president in March
David Plotz, travel writer, says that the Herodium is located in Tall Furaydis, Israel, when it’s in the occupied West Bank. And NPR’s Steve Inskeep echoed the error, impervious to the occupation.
Israeli intelligence tried to hurt Jimmy Carter by leaking information about his ne’er-do-well younger brother Billy in the U.S. press. Now we find out!
