Is the Guardian Once Again Suggesting that Israel is Killing Gazan Babies?
Thursday, July 27, 2017 12:23 PM

The Guardian cannot resist seeing the death of babies in Gaza ultimately as an Israeli nail to be hammered even when her own words make it clear where the blame truly lies.

Wednesday, July 26, 2017 8:11 AM

Indy legitimises bizarre claim that Jerusalem was NOT the ancient Jewish capital
Tuesday, July 25, 2017 12:39 PM

In the spirit of efforts by the Palestinians (and UNESCO) to erase and rewrite Jewish history, The Independent published an article legitimising an obscure author’s claim that King Solomon was actually an Egyptian Pharaoh, his gold mines were a myth and Jerusalem was never in fact the ancient Jewish capital.

Wednesday, July 19, 2017 11:43 AM

With antisemitic incidents in the UK at an all time high, news outlets with even the most strident pro-Palestinian editorial lines - such as the Guardian and Independent - should avoid amplifying toxic anti-Zionist agitprop that doesn't edify or inform, but only inflames those most likely take their anger over Israel out on Jews … Continue reading

Tuesday, July 11, 2017 12:02 PM
