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.

  • 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!

    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 [...]

    When Torah Teaches Life and Life Teaches Torah (REVIEW)

    JNS.org – Rabbi Gordon Tucker spent the first 20 years of his career teaching at the Conservative movement’s Jewish Theological Seminary (JTS) and the next 20 years as the rabbi of Temple Israel Center in White Plains, N.Y. I confess that when I heard about the order of those events, I thought that Tucker’s move from academia to the pulpit was strange. Firstly, I could not imagine anyone filling the place of my friend, Arnold Turetsky, who was such a talented [...]

    JNS.org – I’m in love, and have been for a long time. It’s a relationship filled with laughter, tears, intrigue, and surprise. It was love at first sight, back when I was a little girl—with an extra-terrestrial that longed to go home. From then on, that love has never wavered, and isn’t reserved for one, but for oh so many—Ferris Bueller, Annie Hall, Tootsie, Harry and Sally, Marty McFly, Atticus Finch, Danny Zuko, Yentl, that little dog Toto, Mrs. Doubtfire, [...]

    Examining America’s First Foray into the Middle East (REVIEW)

    At the turn of the 21st century through today, American involvement in Middle Eastern politics runs through the Central Intelligence Agency.

Wilford methodically traces the lives and work of the agency’s three most prominent officers in the Middle East: Kermit “Kim” Roosevelt was the grandson of president Theodore Roosevelt, and the first head of [...]
