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”.”

  • Christian P. Dreyfus

    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!

    How Jewish Television Pioneer Milton Berle Inspired Modern Comedy Stars

    JNS.org – Today’s comedy superstars, especially those whose careers are driven by television, may very well owe their success to pioneering Jewish entertainer Milton Berle. Born Mendel Berlinger in Manhattan in 1908, Berle became America’s first small-screen star. Aptly nicknamed “Mr. Television,” he influenced and helped promote the work of hundreds of younger comics. “Milton Berle was deceptively successful and very Jewish,” says Lawrence Epstein, author of The Haunted Smile: The Story of Jewish Comedians in America, published the year [...]

    Jewish ‘Hoops Whisperer’ a Secret Weapon for NBA Stars

    JNS.org – Idan Ravin’s friends chipped in to buy him a humble but life-changing bar mitzvah gift—a basketball hoop his father attached to the roof of his garage. Little did his friends know that years later, he would be the personal trainer of National Basketball Association (NBA) stars Carmelo Anthony, Kevin Durant, Dwight Howard, and Stephen Curry. Ravin’s new book, “The Hoops Whisperer: On the Court and Inside the Head of Basketball’s Best Players,” details his rise from a Jewish upbringing [...]

    10 New Hollywood Movies That Aim to Show Support for Israel (SATIRE)

    Ten major film studios are currently in production on projects that promote a decidedly pro-Israeli narrative. In famously liberal Hollywood, such a development has left mouths agape and set tongues a wagging. Since the Jewish State began defending itself from the thousands of rockets that Hamas has hurled at it – as well as ongoing terror attacks and murders, the overwhelming number of Tinseltown’s producers, directors, actors, and studio moguls have remained indifferent to the plight of millions of Israeli [...]

    So Close: Israeli Judoka Loses Crown in World Cup Final, Finishes With Silver (VIDEO)

    Israeli Judoka Yarden Gerbi (63kg), 25, of Netanya, on Thursday lost the final round at the Judo World Cup, and her world title to Clarisse Agbegnenou of France, at a match held in Russia. “I have mixed feelings,” Gerbi told Israeli Army radio. But, “I shouldn’t assume that I’d win the world Judo championship twice in a row,” she admitted. Gerbi won gold in Rio De Janeiro last year. “When I made my decision, I knew it was going to [...]

    Surviving the Holocaust by Hiding Their Faith (REVIEW)

    “Jews Out!” was just the name of a child’s game that three little girls played in World War II Europe. But all is not as it seems because the three girls were Jewish, but hiding their true identities. In award-winning author R. D. Rosen’s riveting non-fiction work, Such Good Girls, “Jews Out!” wasn’t a game; it was a struggle for survival. The girls, Sophie, Flora, and Carla, grew up at a time and a place that did not allow them [...]

    Twenty Years On, the Real and Radical Legacy of Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach

    JNS.org – “He was part hippie, part yippie, part beatnik, and part New Age,” wrote Elli Wohlgelernter in a Jerusalem Post eulogy in 1994, following the Oct. 20 passing of Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach. Twenty years later, more robust accounts of Carlebach’s life have come to the surface. Earlier this year, Natan Ophir published the book Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach: Life, Mission & Legacy. This past summer, Rabbi Shlomo Katz’s The Soul of Jerusalem hit the shelves. But even the authors will admit [...]

    Beatlemania Invades the Gaza Strip (SATIRE)

    As Hamas loses its grip on power in the Gaza Strip as a result of war, poverty and disillusionment, the Islamist terrorist group has developed an ingenious way to raise the morale of the 1.7 million Palestinian Arabs it was elected to serve. While currently focused on delivering a rocket into every Israeli home, Hamas has not left its own people behind. To gently wipe away the tears of children strategically placed inside kindergartens as human shields, the Hamas Interior Ministry [...]

    Removing Jesus’ Jewish Identity From Artwork

    In a strong statement that challenges the historic divide between Christianity and Judaism, Pope Francis recently proclaimed, “Inside every Christian is a Jew.” But if you look at Renaissance artworks that depict Jesus, you will not find any evidence of a Jew inside the Christianized Jesus — even though the Gospels in the New Testament tell us that Jesus was Jewish to the core. Getting that point across to the public is a daunting task, as I learned in interviews I [...]
