Israel-born Italian anchorwoman, author and scriptwriter Rula Jebreal used her appearance at the pro-Israel MSNBC on Monday to blast Western media’s biased coverage of Israel-Hamas conflict; calling it “ridiculous”.
Jebreal was interviewed by Ronan Farrow (son of Hollywood’s Jewish actress Mia Farrow) on his Ronan Farrow Daily show. During the interview she blasted Jewish-controlled Western media including MSNBC for obeying Israel and its lobby groups when reporting on Israel-Palestine conflict.
“Because of AIPAC, and because of money behind it, and because of Sheldon Adelson, and because all of us in the media. We are ridiculous. We are disgustingly biased when it comes to this (Israel-Palestine conflict) issue,” said Jebreal.
“Look at how many airtimes Netanyahu and his folks have on air on daily basis like Andrea Mitchell (Jewish) and others. I never see one Palestinian being interviewed on the same issue,” added Jebreal. Watch the interview below.
Since her political wrong statement, all her future US media appearances have been cancelled according to a message on her tweet.
In 2012, MSNBC fired American Catholic political analyst and author Patrick J. Buchanan as result of Israel lobby group ADL’s campaign against Buchanan for nearly two decades. Buchanan’s downfall began with the publication of his book, ‘Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2015?‘ in 2011. In the book Buchanan questioned the enormous power of the Jew Lobby.
Earlier, MSNBC removed its correspondent, Egypt-born Ayman Mohyeldin from Gaza for showing “pro-Palestinian emotion” on the air.
