Phillipe Karsenty

Media Watchdog

More than a decade on and Karsenty is still embroiled in the controversy surrounding the Al-Dourah case. A modern day Emile Zola in some respects, he was one of the first to accuse the France 2 television network of airing staged video of the apparent death of a 12-year-old Palestinian boy. Whether in suing or being sued, Karsenty has made the case that some media outlets will go to great lengths to frame Israel as an aggressor and criminal state. Today, Karsenty continues to monitor the media as it errs through his Media-Ratings, which monitors the media in France for bias

    En réponse à Alain – Philippe Karsenty se bat contre F2 – télévision de l’état – ainsi que contre Enderlin … depuis une douzaine d’années. L’affaire Dreyfus, qui a aussi comme par coïncidence duré 12 ans, a déclenché une vague d’antisémitisme en France sans précédent. Philippe Karsenty ne dépense pas TOUTE son énergie, son temps et ses propres deniers (sans aucune aide ou sponsor pour son combat) NON pour son égo mais tout simplement pour que la vérité sur ce triste événement sois mis à jour pour le publique, pour la France, et pour le monde en général. À noter, si vous n’avez pas eu la chance de connaitre sous tous les angles cette triste histoire, que ce reportage a eu pour effet le déclenchement de la 2ème intifada ainsi qu’un agravement de l’antisémitisme dans le monde et à la décapitation du malheureux journalisteDaniel Pearl. Philippe Karsenty mérite tout le respect qu’il se doit et je dirai même au-dessus du prix éventuel “Èmile Zola”.

    “In response to Alain – Philippe Karsenty fights against F2 – state television – and against Enderlin … for a dozen years. The Dreyfus Affair, which also coincidentally lasted 12 years, triggered a wave of unprecedented anti-Semitism in France. Philippe Karsenty is not spending ALL his energy, time and his own money (without any help or sponsor for his fight) NO to his ego, but simply for the truth about this sad event be updated to the public for the France, and the world in general. Please note, if you have not had the chance to know all angles this sad story, that story had the effect the outbreak of the second intifada and aggravated anti-Semitism in the world and decapitation of the unfortunate journalist Daniel Pearl. Karsenty deserves all the respect he should and I would even say over any price “Emile Zola”.”

    Karsenty really deserves this nomination.
    He is fantastic fighter for the truth, he’s been courageous like nobody in France, and even in Europe in these dark days.
    He had to fight against the French establishment, against the Israeli establishment who wanted to keep making friends with the Arab terrorist.
    You’re right, he is a modern Zola.
    He is a role model for so many people who want to fight for the truth.
    Thank you Karsenty!

  • Karsenty, “a modern day Emile Zola in some respects” ?!?

    It’s a joke or a bug ?
    Voices ? Unknown in France and not taken with the serious one.

  • Alain Y. Cerf

    Congratulations Philippe ! You deserve it thousands times more than BHL.

  • Dear Phillipe,
    You are a modern day hero and your achievement is well-deserved. Your courage and perseverance in the face of appalling anti semitism is inspiring for all of us who stand up for Israel in this crazy topsy turvy world!

    “Girls” creator Lena Dunham responded on Tuesday to charges of antisemitism over an article she had penned for the New Yorker, saying it was all in good humor.

    Former NBA Star Tweets Article About Jewish Conspiracy to Control Global Media

    Retired NBA player Keyon Dooling tweeted a link on Wednesday to a wildly antisemitic article that accuses Jews of seizing control of the world’s media and using it to promote their own interests. The article, published by an obscure blog in April 2013, highlights six companies it claims are owned by Jews — such as Time Warner, Inc. and the Walt Disney Company – that allegedly “control 96 percent of the world’s media.”  The post includes allegations of “Jewish control” and says [...]

    New York Giants offensive guard Geoff Schwartz responded to an outcry from Jewish fans on Tuesday, saying he will go ahead and play in the season opener despite the fact that it falls on the first night of Rosh Hashanah. “Keep getting tweets about that being the first night of Rosh Hashanah… Don’t know what I’m supposed to tell you.

    Jewish Coach David Blatt Has NBA’s Cavaliers Surging at Playoff Time

    JNS.org – When David Blatt was hired as head coach of the National Basketball Association’s Cleveland Cavaliers last June, he was not often recognized when he walked the streets of downtown Cleveland. What a difference a year makes. Now, Blatt can go few places without being recognized. For good reason. The Jewish coach has the Cavaliers in the mix to win the city of Cleveland’s first championship in a major sport since the Browns won the National Football League title in [...]

    Why an Algemeiner Editor Wrote a Play About a Mass Shooter

    For the past two years, I have served as Opinion Editor at The Algemeiner.

We pride ourselves on voicing different opinions because we know that most issues are not black and white, and because our community is better served by a public debate. In my life outside of the paper, I am a professional actor and playwright. And similarly, [...]

Players imagine empires and are pitted against each other, vying for world domination. Amid this fictional world war, beginners learn fast that no matter the superiority of their army, every advance is a gamble determined by a roll of the dice. After a defeat, a player must retreat. Weighted reinforcement cards provide the only opportunity to reverse a player’s fortunes and resume the [...]

    Does Working Out With Other Jews Keep You Jewish?

    JNS.org – For Daphna Krupp, her daily workout (excluding Shabbat) at the Jewish Community Center (JCC or “J”) of Greater Baltimore has become somewhat of a ritual. She not only attends fitness classes but also engages with the instructors and plugs the J’s social programs on her personal Facebook page. “It’s the gym and the environment,” says Krupp. “It’s a great social network.” Krupp, who lives in Pikesville, Md., is one of an estimated 1 million American Jewish members of more [...]
