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!

    Israeli Soccer Team Faces Prospect of International Ban

    The Israel National soccer team could be facing a World Cup ban, and other soccer sanctions, unless it alleviates travel restrictions and increases field access for Palestinian players and coaches. The head of the Palestinian Football Association is pushing for international soccer’s governing body, the Federation of International Football Associations (FIFA), to issue a ban on Israel competing internationally, claiming Israel’s restrictive travel for Palestinians is equivalent to a form of oppression. “It’s not only the athletes,” Jibril Rajoub explains.

    Jewish Author of ‘Eat to Live’ Dishes on Health Care, Nutrition, Disease Prevention

    JNS.org – While the national debate on “Obamacare” rages on past the recent March 31 sign-up deadline, bestselling Jewish author Dr. Joel Fuhrman says the “current disease care model of what we call ‘health care’ cannot possibly be sustained.” “There is simply not enough money available to support a system in which the lion’s share of expenditures is devoted to acute care, with virtually nothing being spent on preventive medicine, i.e. health care,” Fuhrman says in an interview. “To make [...]

    ‘Tears of Color’ Art Exhibit Shows Struggles of Israelis With Eating Disorders

    JNS.org – “This is how I want to be—without fear. Independent. I want to be like a bird. I want to spread my wings.” So reads part of the description beneath one of the 30 paintings on display until the end of May at the ZOA House in Tel Aviv. The collection represents the first-ever art exhibit of its kind: an exhibit created entirely by Israelis in treatment for eating disorders. Dubbed “Tears of Color,” based on one of the [...]

    Overprotective or Loving? Daughters Reflect on Jewish Mothers in New Anthology

    JNS.org – Rachel Ament noticed that she and her friends often shared humorous anecdotes that were typically variations on a theme: overprotective, worrying Jewish moms who smothered them with love. That included Ament’s own mother. “My mom is probably every Jewish stereotype scrunched into one,” the Washington, DC, resident tells JNS.org. “At the root of all these stereotypical, worrying, overprotective moms, is love.” A social media writer for Capital One, as well as a freelance writer, Ament decided about three years [...]

    ‎Kosher Lust: Love is Not the Answer (REVIEW)

    Kosher Lust, by Shmuley Boteach (Gefen Publishing House, 2014). You really do want to find something positive to say about Shmuley Boteach. He is a phenomenon; very bright, an articulate bundle of energy and self-promotion. Anyone who has the chutzpah to describe himself as “America’s Rabbi” deserves ten out of ten for effort. I believe that along with most Chabad alumni, official and unofficial, he does a lot of good and is a sort of national treasure. In this world [...]

    JNS.org – In a throwback to the golden age of cinema, Hollywood has declared 2014 the “Year of the Bible.” From Ridley Scott’s Exodus starring Christian Bale as Moses, to Russell Crowe playing Noah, Hollywood is gambling on new innovations in technology and star power to revisit some of the most popular stories ever told. “It’s definitely a throwback to the 1950s and early ’60s,” Dr. Stephen J. Whitfield, an American Studies professor at Brandeis University, told JNS.org. Starting with The [...]

The son of immigrants from Tel Aviv, Carmel posed for Arbus with his head bowed to [...]
