CNN is still in the Game.
by Steven Shamrak
Last week CNN published an article with the title "Nearly 30 hurt as Israel extremists march in Arab town". This is, as most people only read the headlines, an inappropriately 'primed' headline. The headline did not mention that most of the people who were hurt were Jews who were marching not in an "Arab town" but in Umm al-Fahm, an Israeli town.
The inappropriate headline was followed by an article in which author did not ask tough questions and avoided making factual comments that would inform readers about the reality of the incident. Therefore, CNN failed its readers as it is supposed to be a professional news organization!
A recent article stated: "Deputy Israeli police commissioner Shahar Ayalon and 15 other policemen were wounded by stone throwing demonstrators". But it did not emphasise that the stone-throwers were Arabs, citizens of Israel!
Briefly, and without comments, the article mentioned that Jewish citizens of Israel "were exercising their right to march under Israeli law as Arabs and Muslims have done in Israeli towns like Tel Aviv". So why would it be "setting people (Arabs) off"? Why was the word "people used, not Arabs? Isn't it done deliberately to hide the fact that an act of terror was perpetrated by Israeli-Arabs? And it seems that not only Jewish "extremists" have the right to worry about why Jews are not able to walk or drive through Israeli towns populated by Arabs without being abused and fearing for their lives; stones are regularly thrown by Arabs, one hardly can call them Israelis, at cars driven by Jews!
In the past, there have been many reports and petitions about CNN's anti-Israel bias and even some apologies were issued by the organization. However, it seems that CNN, just like many other 'Israel-friendly' news organizations, is still playing anti-Israel games by twisting or omitting facts and distorting the truth. This approach to reporting news deprives the viewers and readers of unbiased information, but provides the audience with heavily loaded and skewed, anti-Israel 'editorial' opinions.
CNN failed to make clear that: Umm al-Fahm is Israeli town; Jewish citizens were just exercising their right to walk through a town in their own country; Arab-Israelis violently opposed this right by throwing stones and injuring participants in the march as well as members of the police! But in order to report accurately, media 'professionals' need to have integrity and professional pride, commodities have been long forgotten by media personalities, especially where Israel is concerned!
Disrespectful Scum Must be Removed from Jewish Land.
Arabs deliberately brought a herd of sheep to desecrate the Jewish cemetery in Hevron on Friday.
Food for Thought. by Steven Shamrak
I have lost count how many times I have rebuked deliberately anti-Israel or anti-Semitic assumptions and falsifications. I have never seen Muslim/Arab fake claims subjected to the same vigorous and enthusiastic 'research' or scrutiny. In spite of the fact that 'Crusaders' of any kind; Communists, Socialists, Fascists or Jewish self-haters, are next on the Islamists’ hit list, those brainless idiots are still blinded by hate and have been helping Muslim expansionistic ideology to dig their own grave.
Ineffective and Gutless Justice System. After police arrested 13 Arab riot suspects during a pro-Israel flag march in the Israeli-Arab village of Umm el-Fahm, Police Commissioner Dudi Cohen criticized the legal system in Israel: "Sixty percent of the cases we turn over to the courts end without a conviction, 80 percent receive probation, and those who are convicted get 15 percent of the maximal punishment.” (Only Jewish patriots receive the harsh treatment of the Israeli self-hating ‘Justice’ system! Why are Jews still not able to walk or drive safely through Israeli towns or villages populated by Arabs?)
Now Stealing Aid will Become Easier. The Hamas jihadist (terrorist) organization has won control of nearly two thirds of the Gaza branch of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) employees union. The same agency charged last month that Hamas was stealing its humanitarian supplies to the residents of Gaza.
There is Nothing to Celebrate. The Egyptian government said it is not going to host within its country any celebrations of the 30th anniversary of the Egyptian-Israeli peace treaty. "We didn't receive any invitations" said Shani Cooper Zubida, the spokeswoman of the Israeli embassy in Cairo. (When Sadat signed the treaty, his goal was to obtain the return of the Sinai as a step toward destruction of Israel. Israel hoped to have a partner in peace. Neither side achieved its objective!)
Another ‘Delusional’ President Israel Must Live with. United States President Barack Obama said last Tuesday that his government would continue the pressure on Israel and the PA to negotiate. The process is currently moving in “the right direction” he said. (What direction? Does he have any evidence? Rockets are still launched into Israel; Gilad Shalit has been held by Hamas kidnappers for over 3000 days, etc...)
Israel Accused of Bombing Sudan. A 17-truck weapons convoy was bombed in Sudan before the arms could reach Egypt and then travel over the Sinai Desert. “A major power bombed small trucks carrying arms, burning all of them.” Commented Sudanese Minister Mabrouk Mubarak Saleem. (Well done “major power”!)
Israel is “Land of Opportunity”. The latest issue of the prestigious Economist news magazine praised Israel as a “Land of Opportunity" for entrepreneurs. According to the report, Israel currently has 4,000 high-tech companies and over 100 venture-capital funds. In addition, Israeli companies were responsible for innovations including the memory stick, the Pentium chip, voicemail, instant messaging and the firewall. (Well done again!)
New Ark is being Built in Israel. A historic replica ark to be put into the remodeled Hurva synagogue in Jerusalem. The Hurva synagogue was built in the 1700s, but destroyed by the Jordanians after the 1948 War of Independence. (No international condemnation was heard then!)
Quote of the Week: "Don't we deserve independence? Don't we deserve a state? We will keep struggling and will do so until we get them back." - PA President Mahmoud Abbas – The answer is NO! One can’t get back anything if one never owned it! Fake Palestinians never had a state or any kind of independence, even when Judea, Samaria and Gaza were occupied by Jordan and Egypt. This blood-thirsty terrorist mob does not deserve a state. Definitely not on Jewish land!
Israeli Aid to the US. Jewish Home leader Daniel Hershkowitz called on the country to make a greater effort to return Israeli scientists from abroad. It costs Israel approximately one million shekels to train a scientist. Almost 3,000 scientists have left Israel for other countries, meaning Israel is subsidizing those countries at a cost of almost three billion shekels.
Revolving Door of Terrorism. Israeli Minister Haim Ramon, a member of the Ministerial Committee on Security Prisoners, told Israel Radio that Hamas did not negotiate over the release of prisoners but rather presented an ultimatum for Israeli capitulation. Ramon emphasized that two-thirds of Hamas prisoners released in the past had returned to terror and murdered many Israelis.
Israel is Number 1 in Water Management. Israel was named the world's most efficient recycled water user in a United Nations. Israel purifies and reuses almost 70 percent of its waste water each year for agriculture, outranking the second most efficient recycled water user – Spain – which only recycles 12 percent of its waste water.
Attack Came from ‘Fatahstan’. The attempted car bomb placed near a busy mall in Haifa a week ago came from Fatah controlled territories according to the estimation of the security services.
‘Consideration’ which is 60 Years Late. The mayor of a small German town, Schwabach in Bavaria, wants to withdraw the honorary citizenship granted in 1933 to Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler. (Why are all ‘pro-Jewish’ considerations taking so long and so difficult to make?)
Druze Know their Arab Neighbours Better! Druze MK Ayoub Kara said that Israeli government should stop negotiating to exchange kidnapped IDF soldier Gilad Shalit for terrorist prisoners and instead embark on a military operation to return him. He also explained that you have to speak with Hamas (and Fatah) in Arabic, and not in French or “cutesy-mootsy.”
CIA: Israel Will Fall in 20 Years.
A study conducted by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) has cast doubt over Israel’s survival beyond the next 20 years…
The CIA report predicts “an inexorable movement away from a two-state to a one-state solution, …the return of all Palestinian refugees to the occupied territories, and the exodus of two million Israeli - who would move to the US in the next fifteen years…”
The study further predicts the return of over one and a half million Israelis to Russia and other parts of Europe, and denotes a decline in Israeli births whereas a rise in the Palestinian population... (Israel must prove our ‘friends’ wrong by changing direction toward the reunification of Eretz-Israel! Why is creation of 6 million Jewish refugees is expectable, but orderly relocation of 4 million of so-called Palestinians is not?)
