AP Media Bias: The Gift That Keeps on Giving

Posted by avideditor on March 31, 2008

Israellycool has more on despicable media bias of AP

AP Media Bias: The Gift That Keeps on Giving: “

There are certain things in life that are certain. You know, things like death, taxes…AP photographers showing their bias against Israel.

Case in point: here’s AP photographer Muhammed Muheisen on today’s terror attack.

The body of a Palestinian is seen, following a knife incident in the West Bank settlement of Shilo, near Nablus, Monday, March 31, 2008. In West Bank violence Monday, a Palestinian who tried to stab Israeli hitchhikers near a Jewish settlement was shot and killed by an armed Israeli civilian, Israeli police said. One of the hitchhikers opened fire after the Palestinian pulled a knife, police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said, calling the shooting self-defense. (AP Photo/Muhammed Muheisen)

Leaving aside the fact that he has seen fit to take a picture of the terrorist’s lifeless body, allow me to translate key parts of the caption:

Knife ‘incident’ = terror attack perpetrated with a knife

‘West Bank violence’ = terror attack perpetrated by a palestinian

‘Pulled a knife’ = pulled out a knife to kill

And the cherry on top is the last part of the caption when Muheisen mentions the police spokesman ‘calling the shooting self-defense.’ As if it was something else.

Update: Besides being an AP photographer/propagandist, Muheisen also dabbles in blog commenting.

Puppet Show From Hamas TV Shows Child Stabbing Bush

Posted by avideditor on March 31, 2008

The “Palestinians” are showing the US who they truly are, jihadis. I just hope the US sees this so it stops trying to make Israel give up power to the “Palestinians” which are really just like the 500 million other arabs around Israel and they move there instead of letting them live on more jewish land.

Yes I know this is Hamas TV not from Fatah but Hamas did win the elections and most “palis” support Hamas and there agenda.

Puppet Show From Hamas TV Shows Child Stabbing Bush: “

He also said that Bush is impure and for that reason is not allowed into the White House because ‘it has been turned into a great mosque for the nation of Islam.’

These are people to whom we send hundreds of millions of dollars in humanitarian aid and want them to have a state of their own.

And the $64K question is: What does CAIR have to say to that?

(FOX News) A children’s puppet show featured on Hamas TV shows a child stabbing President Bush to death.

‘Who are you to come here and threaten me?’ Bush says in the puppet show video. ‘You are on my own turf, you little child, you. Get out.’

The child tells Bush that he killed his father in the Iraq war, which made him an orphan.

‘I have come to take revenge with this sword — revenge for my mother and my sisters,’ the child puppet says. ‘You are a criminal, Bush.’

‘I will kill you, Bush, because that is your fate,’ the child says before stabbing Bush repeatedly.

The show aired on Al-Aqsa TV on March 30.

Khomeini Supporter Appointed Special Agent of UN Human Rights Council

Posted by avideditor on March 31, 2008

It looks like the UN is becoming even more of a jihadi puppet. The US should withdraw from this fraud called the United nations now. Richard A Falk should be arrested and interrogated to find out his terrorist contacts not appointed as a member of the human rights council. I am upset that our tax payer money is being used to fund this anti semitic jihadi organization called the UN.

Khomeini Supporter Appointed Special Agent of UN Human Rights Council: “THe UN appointed an America-hating Ayatollah Khomeini supporter to the UN Human Rights Council. Richard A. Falk, who has compared Israel to the Nazis, was appointed special investigator on Israeli actions in the Palestinian territories.

The Jerusalem Post reported:

The United Nations Human Rights Council on Wednesday appointed American Jewish law professor Richard A. Falk – who has compared Israel to the Nazis – as special investigator on Israeli actions in the territories for a six-year term.Falk, who formerly taught international law at Princeton University, replaces South African professor John Dugard, who was an expert on apartheid.Dugard leaves his post in June after seven years. He made waves when he compared Israeli actions in the territories with apartheid and colonialism.Falk, in his academic writing, has already stated that a Palestinian holocaust was in the making.Yitzhak Levanon, ambassador to the United Nations in Geneva, spoke against Falk’s appointment in an address to the council on Wednesday.’In a recent article, [Falk] stated that he did not think it to be ‘an irresponsible overstatement to associate the treatment of Palestinians with the criminalized Nazi record of collective atrocity,’ Levanon said.’He has taken part in a UN fact-finding mission which determined that suicide bombings were a valid method of ‘struggle,” Levanon said.

Falk has a long record of opposing the US and is a supporter of Ayatollah Khomeini:

In Falk’s calculus, the root cause of Islamic terrorist attacks is that ‘the mass of humanity … finds itself under the heels of U.S. economic, military, cultural, and diplomatic power.’ In 1979 he was an enthusiastic supporter of the Ayatollah Khomeni, who he hailed as a ‘liberator’ of Iran. Falk continues to invariably side with America’s foes in international disputes.

Carl in Jerusalem has more on the latest outrageous move by the UN.”

Israel plans homes in West Bank

Posted by Rodan on March 31, 2008

Good news from my Israeli allies!

http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/5202af28-ff46-11dc-b556-000077b07658.html?nclick_check=1

Israel has every right to build homes on the West Bank, Oops I meant Judea-Samaria. That land has been Jewish for 4,ooo years. As a Catholic Zionist, I support Israel to build on land that God gave them. Israelis must never forget that God is the only one that has their backs. They mustn’t rely on any nation, that includes America.

The Palestininans, Oops sorry Islamic occupiers are descended from Jihad invaders of the 7th Century who drove my Roman ancestors from that territory. The Christian “Arabs” of that region aren’t Arabs. They are descended of Roman and Greek Colonists of Israel. The Media doesn’t report these historical truths. The Bible clearly states that God gave Israel to the Jews. Any Christian or Jew that denies this is a fake and doesn’t deserve this label.

Israel, build away and keep building! It’s you land and only God can take it!

Rice’s betrayal of Israel

Posted by avideditor on March 31, 2008

Read Caroline Glick most recent piece on Condoleezza Rice.

Rice’s betrayal of Israel

“In her monthly trip to Israel and the Palestinian Authority next week, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is expected to criticize Israel for its announced plan to build new housing for Jews in Jerusalem. Referring to the government’s plans in a recent tour of the city, U.S. Ambassador Richard Jones said that as far as the U.S. was concerned, the fact that there is a housing shortage for Jewish families in the city was no reason to build new housing.’Building homes for Jews in Jerusalem, the ambassador intimated, is a provocative act that will endanger prospects for peace with the Palestinians. Consequently, the ambassador suggested, Jews will just have to leave the city.‘Sometimes people do have to move to a different location,’ he explained. ‘They cannot always stay close to their families.’Also during her visit, Rice will call for Israel to ease up on its counter-terror operations in Judea and Samaria in order to ratchet up the Egyptian-sponsored, U.S.-supported negotiations toward a cease-fire agreement between Israel and Hamas. Moreover, Rice is expected to pressure the Olmert-Livni-Barak government to move ahead with destroying Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria that have been built since 2001.Rice will take these steps as she calls for Israel and the Fatah-led Palestinian Authority in Judea and Samaria to abide by their obligations to the 2003 ‘road map’ plan for the establishment of a Palestinian state in Judea, Samaria, Gaza and Jerusalem. She will note that such actions are in accordance with the joint Israeli-Palestinian declaration announced at the conclusion of December’s Annapolis conference.All of Rice’s moves will come against the backdrop of intensified negotiations in Yemen between Fatah and Hamas toward the reestablishment of their unity government. That government collapsed last June following Hamas’s takeover of the Gaza Strip. It was the collapse of the unity government that enabled Rice to organize the Annapolis conference, which was based on the assumption that Fatah leader Mahmoud Abbas would fight Hamas and refuse to reunite forces with the Iranian and Syrian-sponsored jihadist movement.Her statements will also come two weeks after it was first reported that Abbas has called on so-called Palestinian refugees to march on Israel’s borders with Lebanon, Gaza, Jordan and Syria on Israel’s 60th Independence Day; and for Americans, Canadians and Europeans of Palestinian descent to charter flights and passenger ships to arrive in Israel the same day. The stated purpose of’Abbas’s plan is to force Israel to accept millions of foreign-born, hostile Arabs into its territory in order to overwhelm Israel demographically and so destroy its Jewish character.Rice’s visit next week, then, will be a direct continuation of her last visit here on March 4. At that time, Rice forced the Olmert-Livni-Barak government to end IDF offensive operations against Hamas in Gaza. As the Israeli media have since reported, Hamas is exploiting the cease-fire to augment its control over all aspects of life in Gaza and to expand its arsenal and military capabilities against Israel.To cite just one example, Hamas has reportedly completed its takeover of 8 out of the 22 medical facilities in Gaza. Through actions such as this, it is rendering the civilian population completely dependent on its Islamist largesse to receive basic services.Rice’s visit comes ten days after Lt. General William Fraser’s trip to Israel and the Palestinian Authority. Fraser was appointed by Rice to act as judge of Israeli and Palestinian compliance with the road map in accordance with the Annapolis declaration. Fraser’s visit was boycotted by Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak, who absented himself from the meeting with Fraser and Fatah Prime Minister Salam Fayyad due to the overtly anti-Israel positions adopted by Fraser and his colleagues during Rice’s visit. Fraser reportedly attacked Barak and the IDF for scuttling his plans to expand Fatah military control over Judea and Samaria by insisting on fighting terrorists in the areas.Fraser, like Rice, attacks Israel while stubbornly ignoring clear evidence of Fatah involvement in terror and Abbas’s open radicalization in the lead-up to the March 29 Arab League summit in Damascus where Fatah and Hamas leaders are expected to announce their efforts to reinstate their unity government. Indeed, even when US officials acknowledge that Fatah is not fighting terror effectively, they assert that the remedy is to give Fatah more arms and control over more territory.Rice’s heavy-handed policy toward Israel amounts to a betrayal of Israel on two levels. First, as Rick Richman wrote last week on the American Thinker website, Rice’s current policy of demanding that Israel dismantle Israeli communities in Judea and Samaria, freeze all building activities for Jews beyond the 1949 armistice lines including in Jerusalem and the major settlement blocs, and refrain from taking any major offensive actions against Palestinian terror groups is a complete betrayal of President Bush’s signed April 14, 2004 pledge to then-prime minister Ariel Sharon.Bush’s’letter, which came after Sharon laid out his plan to destroy all Israeli communities in Gaza and withdraw Israeli forces from the region and to similarly destroy Israel communities in northern Samaria, made clear that the U.S. views a Palestinian commitment to combat terror, end incitement and dismantle terror groups and cells as the first stage of any further peace process between Israel and the Palestinians. Bush also explicitly stated that the U.S. did not think it reasonable to expect that Israel would remove itself to the 1949 armistice lines in any future peace.In advancing the Annapolis summit, Rice openly betrayed Bush’s written pledge to Sharon, which was followed by a Congressional resolution in June 2004 explicitly approving the letter’s contents. Rice has delighted in this betrayal by claiming that the Annapolis platform broke the ‘tight sequentiality’ dictated by the road map. That ‘tight seqentiality’ dictated that before Israel would negotiate a final peace with the Palestinians, the Palestinians would first cease to harbor, support and train terrorists, end their war against Israel and end their anti-Israel incitement activities.It should be noted that in betraying the word of her boss, Rice was amply assisted by the feckless Olmert-Livni-Barak government. In an effort to divert public attention from the government’s incompetent leadership during the Second Lebanon War, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and his colleagues sought to shore up their support base among Israel’s leftist elites by renewing negotiations with Fatah.Naively, Olmert, Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni and Barak assumed that their willingness to engage Rice’s obsessive interest in advancing negotiations would satisfy her yearning to be viewed as a peacemaker. They may have been under the impression that for Rice the negotiations are as much of a public relations stunt as they are for them. Certainly they must have expected that she would exhibit an understanding of Israel’s security predicament, surrounded as it is by Iranian proxies in Gaza, Lebanon and Syria and a radicalized Palestinian population in Judea, Samaria and Jerusalem.Yet this was not in the cards. Rather than acknowledge reality, Rice has pushed on with her policies to the point where not only Bush’s own commitments to Israel fail to constitute a bar against her actions, human decency and basic logic have been discarded.In her race to establish a Palestinian state, Rice has not only failed to recognize the threat posed to Israeli security — and indeed to global security — by the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip and the terror and jihad-laced Fatah movement. She has also embraced the wholly false and morally outrageous claim that the construction (or existence) of Jewish communities beyond the 1949 armistice lines is as much a threat to peace as Palestinian terror attacks against Israelis and anti-Israel incitement at all levels of Palestinian society, both in Hamas and Fatah dominated areas.In an attempt to preempt Rice’s expected animosity in her upcoming visit, Barak announced he would scale back IDF counter-terror operations in Judea and Samaria by taking down a roadblock and easing the travel of Palestinian businessmen and senior officials. The fact that such moves imperil Israeli security was made clear on March 18. That day, senior Fatah official and former interim PA president Rauhi Fattouh was stopped at the Allenby Bridge crossing point from Jordan as he attempted to exploit his travel privileges to import contraband into the PA. Israeli security forces seized 3,000 cellular telephones hidden in his vehicle.Israeli officials’ continued attempts to appease Rice’are not only counterproductive because of the immediate security breaches caused by such appeasement. By showing that they will bow to Rice’s pressure, which is exerted in contempt of signed U.S. commitments to Israel, the Olmert-Livni-Barak government signals both to the next U.S. administration and to the Palestinians that they have no reason to abide by their word to the Jewish state.Originally published in The Jewish Press.“(Via Caroline Glick.)</
