Some lies are clever. Then there are The Guardian’s lies.
Far from being centers of enlightenment and progress, too many universities are instead establishing themselves as hotbeds of bigotry and backwardness, embracing the kind of crude antisemitic conspiracy theories that helped fuel some of history’s most violently racist moments, from pogroms to the Holocaust.
The answer as to why these actors are so militant about appointing and defending known anti-Israel partisans and antisemites should be obvious. A fair analysis of the allegations would not produce the outcome they so desire. Whether ensuring only anti-Israel partisans are appointed to investigate Israel or crying “smear campaign” when those partisans are caught saying the quiet part out loud, these actors are invested in creating a lose-lose game for the Jewish state and the Jewish people.
Axios not only misleads on the cause of Airbnb's reversal of its boycott decision, but also omits an important component of the story: the overt discrimination involved.
"Breaking Travel News" loses its compass, searching for the Jewish state's capital, but turning up in Tel Aviv. The early takeoff of the travel publication's World FIFA coverage crashes and burns with anti-Israel invective demonizing the "occupation" or "apartheid" state.
“Who’s controlling the media? Who’s controlling the strong machine?” These were the questions asked at a recent UN media seminar, where officials seemed to be all too comfortable with the suggestion that a manipulative Jewish cabal is controlling the levers of power.
VOA states that its staff must follow the principle of presenting “a comprehensive, reliable, and unbiased description of events.” In relation to its coverage of the COI, VOA has come up well short of these principles.
When actors like the UN Commission of Inquiry perpetuate such blatantly one-sided narratives, they are not playing an impartial role.
Once you boil away the antisemitism and false claims, Crossette’s article comes down to the fact that a Jewish opinion editor and an Israeli ambassador separately expressed opposition to a bigot being honored with an award, and the only conclusion Crossette can find is that there is an “Israel lobbying campaign,” instead of two Jews having an understandable problem with antisemites being honored in Germany in 2022.
There simply aren’t many examples of antisemitism targeted at Jews as Jews more obvious than Miloon Kothari’s remarks in July. Yet, Beinart and his cosignatories still chose to depict them as merely “insensitive” and as “criticism of Israel.”
