I bet this case of Jewish self-denial can make a good script for Jon Stewart Show.
Matti Friedman, former reporter and editor at Associated Press (AP) Jerusalem Bureau, has accused his former employer of biased reporting of Israel and Jews. Matti was fired from his job in 2011.
After struggling to get rehired or receive a hefty compensation from AP for nearly three years, Friedman began his soap-opera with an article published at The Jewish Daily Forward on August 26, 2014. He claimed that western media is in the habit of portraying Palestinians as David while Israeli Jews being Goliath.
Interestingly, Canadian war reporter and author, Eric Margolis, made that comparison on July 19, 2014, saying: “PM Netanyahu has managed to portray Palestinians as rabid terrorists with whom no negotiations are possible. Any Palestinian state next to Israel, warns Netanyahu, would become another Gaza, shooting rockets into peaceful Israel.”
On November 30, 2014, Friedman fired his second outburst at The Atlantic, claiming that western media has become less interested in the “Jewish-Arab” conflict than the actors inside. This time he tried to bring-in the Jewish sense of self-victimization.
Friedman has also accused AP for not trusting views of Israeli professor Gerald Steinberg, the founder-president of Jerusalem-based Israeli propaganda NGO Monitor. Gerald Steinberg founded the group after 2001 Durban Conference on Racism. Gerald Steinberg is welknown critic of Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International, Christian Aid, Oxfom, etc. to name a few. He is also considered ‘an authority’ on matters relating to Iran’s nuclear program and Hizbullah.
In December 2011, the “expert” professor accused ‘Friends of Sabeel‘, a voice of Palestinian Christians – for selling “Peace with Justice” Christmas greeting cards, one of which says “The Empire will not last“.
On December 1, 2014, Paul Colford, AP director of media relation issued a statement debunking Friedman’s Israeli propaganda lies.
“Our body of work included images and stories about Hamas rocket fire from civilian areas, the suffering of the residents of southern Israel living under the threat of rocket, mortar and tunnel-based attacks, Hamas’ summary executions of suspected collaborators, the fears of Gazans to criticize the group, Hamas’ use of civilian areas for cover and the devastation wreaked on Gazan civilians by Israeli airstrikes and artillery attacks,” Colford said. These counter lies could only be interpreted as “biased” to Israel by some brainless person.
Forget that former CNN correspondent Linda Scherzer has said: “We, as Jews must understand that we come with certain bias. We believe in Israeli narrative of history. We support the values that we as Americans, Westerners and Jews espouse. Thus, we see news through our own prism.”
Forget that Philip Weiss admitted in a February 17, 2008 article that though Jews make less than 2% of America’s population, they control more than 50% of country’s media.
Forget that former Wisconsin Jewish Sen. Russ Feingold in his book, While America Sleeps, has claimed that Jews have undesirable influence over country’s mass media which plays a significant part in creating racism against Muslims and Africans.
Forget that prominent Hollywood director Oliver Stone with Jewish family roots, in a 2010 interview told the Sunday Times that Jewish control of media is preventing an open discussion of the Holocaust. He also added that US Jewish Lobby was controlling US foreign policy for years.
Forget that Clarissa Sebag-Montifeor boasted at the Jewish Tablet Magazine on March 27, 2014 that many Chinese scholars she met in China told her: “The world’s wealth is in American pockets; Americans’ are Jews’ pockets.”
Forget that some researchers have claimed that six Jewish companies control 96% of the world media.
So, you see, the issue here is not whether Associated Press is owned by a Jew or that a significant numbers of its top positions are held by Zionist Jews – the issue is the organized Jewry don’t believe in freedom of speech for the people who refuse to see the world through their prism. For example, in October 2006, American Christian writer John Kaminski said that he could make any Jew tell a lie in three seconds. “Tell me the history of Israel.” You won’t hear the real answer from a Jew.
“The real answer is: Israel is a criminal entity subject to no laws but its own, and it basically has none. It was created by terrorists who stole the land from its original owners. Every crime is permissible by a Jew against a non Jew. That is the core of its teaching in both the Talmud and the Torah. Non Jews are cattle, the Talmud says. Take a look at the world, and see how those cattle are now being slaughtered, especially in the neighborhood of Israel,” explained Kaminski.
Israeli-born British author and activist Gilad Atzmon in 2012 interview claimed that Jewish groups played a major role in getting Iran’s Press TV banned in Britain and several other European nations.
Qatar-based Al-Jazeera Arabic Channel is not allowed to operate in Canada. On the other hand, its English Channel, loaded with Jewish staff, is welcomed in Canada.
Canadian news website The Redical Press has been under Jewish lobby’s knife for years for exposing Jewish power in Canada in influencing Ottawa’s foreign policy toward the Muslim world.
After Barack Obama signed the federal hate crime bill in 2009, the organized Jewry took the credit for the definition of hate in the bill – criticism of Holocaust, Jews, Israel, bankers even supporting the perceived enemies of the Zionist entity.
