The Guardian has never been known for its balanced reporting on Israel, but a cartoon, shown below, in today’s issue of the paper might have crossed the line again. The cartoon, drawn by Steve Bell, depicts Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as a puppetmaster: in one hand he holds Foreign Secretary William Hague (Perhaps Bell took offense to Hague’s comments the other day that “Hamas bears the principle responsibility” for the current situation), in the other former Prime Minster Tony Blair.  He is flanked by Israeli flags shaped like rockets, ready to launch. In the background are rockets already in flight. Above Netanyahu are written the words “Vote Likud.” It’s no wonder Bell incorporated so few words into the cartoon–because that’s how facts are reported, and Bell obviously has no need for facts.

    Of course they did. The Guardian is an antisemitic newspaper. This is what they do.

    Seems to me to be connected to the upcoming Israeli elections.While I have no doubt that something had to be done to stop the missiles on the South of Israel,taking out the Hamas general-Jaabari was the wrong thing to do,as there is evidence that the guy was about to sign a long term truce with Israel.Apparently the Likud rightwingers were afraid of losing the elections,and want to ensure ongoing strife.

    The Guardian newspaper is doing what several other newspapers are doing in recasting news to fit their anti-Israel propaganda. And then we wonder why these media propagandize when, in a democratic environment,they have the opportunity to print the truth…
