The Guardian Refuses to Cover Proof of Palestinian Incitement and Anti-Semitism

Israeli security officials recently presented the annual “Palestinian Incitement Index,” which includes findings from recent months, during which peace talks have been taking place. The findings demonstrate that incitement against Israel (and Jews as such) is continuing in the state-controlled Palestinian media, and that during the period of negotiations, not only did incitement not decrease, but in certain areas it even increased.

The data suggests that incitement encompasses several main messages:

  • Israel has no right to exist, and Jews have no link to the Holy Land;
  • The Jews are sub-human creatures and must be dealt with accordingly;
  • In principle, all forms of struggle, including terrorism, are legitimate in order to realize the final goal.

Though the documentation on Palestinian incitement was made available to foreign journalists – and subsequently covered even by the New York Times – the Guardian’s Harriet Sherwood, never shy about framing every Israeli announcement on housing tenders across the green line as an obstacle to peace – has not, as of yet, reported on the disturbing findings.

  • Just a passing note: the Palestinian flag on the kotel carries an inscription that reads ha’it al-buraq, namely ‘The Buraq Wall’. Buraq is the mythical winged horse aboard which the prophet Muhammad ascended to heaven, starting from the rock inside the Dome of the Rock (which hadn’t yet been built). There is, of course, no link between that legend and the Kotel, its history, or its archaeology, nor is there any reals link between a mythical horse and the historical Muhammad. It is a transparent attempt to take control, even if it means made-up stories and an attitude of supremacism.

  • Well this is typical of the PA which plays a shell game with their opinions, spreads hate but hides behind main stream media as to hide all of their true intentions. Obviously the Guardian is no longer a “News Periodical” but instead is a propaganda weapon for the Palestinian Arabs, the PA, Hamas and their terrorist allies.Really no surprises there. Certainly take into account the bias Harriet Sherwood lives by as her belief is that opinions are real news swaying public opinion. Just like the Nazi’s used!!

    A Theatrical Look at Diplomacy and the Oslo Accords (REVIEW)

    Is diplomacy worthwhile, even if the end result isn’t what we hoped for? That is the question, among many others, posed by the new play Oslo, by J.T. Rogers. Making its New York debut at Lincoln Center, the play examines the secret diplomatic process that led to the historic 1993 peace accords. The character of Shimon Peres makes an appearance onstage — and he, along with Yitzhak Rabin and Yasser Arafat, tower over the proceedings. But they mainly do so in absentia. Instead, […]

    Israeli Trailblazer Dean Kremer Brings Jewish Values to Nascent Pro Baseball Career

    JNS.org – Other than being part of the Los Angeles Dodgers organization, Sandy Koufax and Dean Kremer have something else in common: a respect for Jewish tradition. Koufax — who was recently ranked by ESPN as the best left-handed pitcher in Major League Baseball (MLB) history — decided not to pitch Game 1 of the 1965 World Series because the game fell on Yom Kippur. “I would do the same,” Kremer said in an interview. Last month, the 20-year-old Kremer became […]

    To date or not to date? That is not the question for most Modern Orthodox singles in New York.
