The Washington Post published an article profiling seven journalists killed in Gaza. The research below suggests it was a deliberate attempt to deceive. The Washington Post report The Washington Post report covers the deaths of ‘journalists’ in Gaza. Using the list of names provided by ‘the Committee to Protect Journalists’ (CPJ), the Post describes the Gazan journalists as brave heroes who paid the ultimate price … Continue reading The deliberate lies in the Washington Post
I have just published a report on journalists in Gaza. Hamas, NGOs, and key media figures have been spreading an antisemitic conspiracy about Israel killing journalists in Gaza to silence them. Some well-known skewed ‘journalists’ like Alex Crawford at Sky News are consistently posting about journalists being killed. In this post she references 109 journalists dead – simply parroting raw Hamas propaganda: While Hamas (and … Continue reading Exposing the lie about Palestinian journalists
With every step Israeli soldiers take inside the Al-Shifa hospital in Gaza, the hysteria of Hamas propaganda goes up a notch. We are presented with a string of doctors talking about incubator babies, corpses being eaten by dogs, a lack of electricity, and medical procedures being performed without drugs. Tragically western media simply parrots these messages: Hamas’ finely tuned propaganda system is built upon decades … Continue reading International media and the Hamas supporting Doctors of Shifa
The cover image to this piece is a classic, recognisable shot. A brave Palestinian journalist in Gaza, reporting from the front lines. With no way of fact-checking ANYTHING happening in Gaza, the world’s media is completely reliant on these people. And from the BBC to loud-mouthed celebrities on social media – they all seem to believe everything they are fed. Mainstream media generally has a … Continue reading Things are just not what they seem
Another week, another mass demonstration in London calling for the destruction of Israel. If you disagree with that statement and believe that these are peaceful marches by people who only want a ‘ceasefire’ – then this article is for you. I attended this one, as I have since they started three weeks ago. I turn up, I hear the chants, I take videos, I post … Continue reading The dangerous lies of our media
It is almost impossible to overstate how far the Guardian has fallen. Once the voice of the liberal left – the paper has turned into a ‘Palestine’ obsessed rag that consistently promotes voices that are attacking British Jews. Just this week we were given yet another example – Haroon Siddique wrote an article about a report attacking the use of the IHRA definition of antisemitism … Continue reading The Guardian attacks the Jews…. again
Social media sites such as Twitter portray a wonderful history of a state called Palestine – but first let us quickly remember the truth. The historical facts: For the Islamic world, the area of 19th century Southern Syria was a sparsely populated forgotten backwater with rival clans and nomadic tribes presenting a hazardous obstacle for every trip. The weakening of the occupying power (the Ottoman … Continue reading The colourful Twitter history of Palestine
During an interview with Israeli ex-PM Naftali Bennett the BBC anchor Anjana Gadgil suggested that ‘Israeli forces are happy to kill children’. This is an antisemitic blood libel reworked for the 21st century. Many complained, the BBC apologised, and the Board of Deputies swiftly accepted the apology. I cannot be the only one who is sickened by this recurring pantomime. Anjana Gadgil’s words may have … Continue reading The BBC blood libel and the shame of a biased media
It was surprising to see a book based on an antisemitic conspiracy theory being given a gushing review by The Spectator. Much less surprising is that ‘Three Worlds: Memoir of an Arab-Jew’, is authored by Avi Shlaim – a Baghdad-born Jew best known for making it his life’s mission to wear his (lucrative) anti-Israel credentials on his sleeve. My response to The Spectator’s review was … Continue reading Three Worlds by Avi Shlaim – a proper review
The Jews were persecuted, dispossessed, and forced out of Iraq. Most turned up as penniless refugees in Israel. This is fact, not opinion – and there is overwhelming evidence to prove that this is true. Yet Spectator Magazine has just published an article that gives legitimacy to a disgraceful antisemitic conspiracy theory – one which claims that it was the result of a Zionist plot. … Continue reading The Spectator falls down an antisemitic conspiracy rabbit hole
The Guardian recently published an article about the Government’s upcoming Boycotts, divestment and sanctions bill. It is a bill that sets out to stop activists damaging community cohesion and subverting the UK’s foreign policy positions, by forcing through local level boycotts. As always the principal target for boycott is the only Jewish state in the world. Supporters of the bill claim that taxpayer funded bodies … Continue reading Muslim Brotherhood? Antisemites? Meet the Guardian’s ‘civil society’.
For those that are old enough to remember, there was a time when Gazans commuted with ease to work in Israel, and Israelis went shopping in markets in the Gaza Strip. When I first arrived in Israel many of those I worked alongside lived in places such as Beit Lahia or Beit Hanoun (two towns at the northern tip of Gaza). This continued for a … Continue reading The Gaza Strip – always remember how we got here
On the 20th April 2023 several British MPs turned the Houses of Parliament into an anti-Zionist, Israel-bashing chamber. A house of antisemitic lies. This took place just 13 days after the brutal Palestinian terrorist attack that killed three British/Israeli citizens, Lucy, Maia and Rina Dee. MPs have a responsibility, and spreading blatant lies about Israel spreads antisemitism, which in turn poses dangers to British Jews … Continue reading The lies that MPs tell about Israel in Parliament
“It ain’t what you don’t know that gets you into trouble. It’s what you know for sure that just ain’t so.” (source unknown, but often attributed to Mark Twain). The ‘success’ of ‘Palestine’-related myths provides excellent examples of how we are surrounded by Orwellian inversions of truth. From the Guardian and the BBC to the Washington Post and NYT, the mainstream media are all likely … Continue reading Just where on earth was ‘Palestine’?
On Friday 27 January 2023, at about 8:15pm, a Palestinian terrorist murdered seven people outside a synagogue in Neve Yaakov, a neighbourhood of Jerusalem. This was a cold-blooded, inexcusable, and targeted terrorist attack against innocent civilians. Yet whenever Jews are murdered just for being Jews – the media has a long history of twisting events or making excuses for the terrorists that set out to … Continue reading Jerusalem, dead Jews – and a history of media excuses
