Speaking Wednesday night at a rally in Fort Myers, Fla., President Trump condemned the “far-left media” for “once again using tragedy to sow anger and division” shortly after his visit to Pittsburgh in the wake of Saturday’s deadly mass shooting at a synagogue there.

Trump calls CNN panelist contributor a ‘sick woman’ after she said the president has ‘radicalized more people than ISIS ever did’

Ioffe, discussing the Pittsburgh synagogue mass shooting earlier in the day on a CNN panel with Jake Tapper, said: ‘I think this president, one of the things that he really launched his presidential run on is talking about Islamic radicalization. This president has radicalized so many more people than ISIS ever did.’

Prosecution Gives Remarkable Glimpse of Hezbollah Inside America — and Media Yawns

A purposefully ambiguous “association of western intelligence organizations” hosts a unique public website titled “Stop 910”. Whoever runs it solicits information — in English, Spanish, and Arabic — to out sleeper agents of the notorious external terrorism service of Hezbollah, known by the nom de guerre “Unit 910.” The “association” offers reward money, photos of suspected operatives it wants identified, and instructions on how to anonymously inform.

‘JEWISH JIHADISTS’: Joy Reid’s Blog Published Posts Blaming Jews For Terrorism

Embattled MSNBC host Joy Reid once promoted the conspiracy theory that “Jewish Jihadists” were responsible for Islamic terrorism, according to newly discovered screenshots obtained by The Daily Wire.

Screenshots from a post dated July 21, 2006, show that “JReid” blamed Jews in Israel for Islamic terrorism and appeared to go as far as justifying terrorism against Israel.

Mark Levin: The Media ‘Have Blood On Their Hands’

Conservative author and radio host Mark Levin blasted the mainstream media’s coverage surrounding Israel’s response to the Palestinians’ violent protests following the opening of the US Embassy in Jerusalem. The media, Levin said, “have blood on their hands” for continuing to fall for the tactics of Hamas, who use human shields as props for the cameras so the press will unfairly blame the Israeli government for the violence.

Nine Flaws With New York Times ‘Israel’s War on George Soros’ Article

An opinion article in the New York Times improbably used George Soros as a bludgeon with which to attack Israel and its elected prime minister.

I counted at least nine flaws with the article. It appeared in the Times online under the headline “Israel’s War Against George Soros,” but a more apt headline might have been “The New York Times’ War Against Israel.”

Washington Post’s Jerusalem Bureau Chief Peddles Anti-Israel Fake News

I think it’s fair to say that when it comes to anti-Israel reporting in the so-called mainstream media, the New York Times consistently takes top prize. Its writers have attempted to mainstream hate sites, romanticized rock throwing and have openly stated that they could not be impartial when writing about those pesky Jews. Given its current radical trajectory it’s safe to say that NYT will retain this dubious distinction for the foreseeable future. But another paper is giving the NYT a run for its money.

NY Times Publishes Op-Ed by Palestinian ‘Political Prisoner’, Doesn’t Mention He’s a Convicted Terrorist

What the author, and the New York Times, fails to mention is that Barghouti was sentenced in 2004 to five consecutive life sentences for coordinating a series of terrorist attacks on Israeli law enforcement and civilians, including a failed suicide attack that only killed the attacker.

CNN swallows the myth of Israel dominating US foreign aid

There are a lot of problems with this story, geared to make it look like Israel is taking the lion’s share of the US budget spent overseas.

Here’s what is not being said up front: The US government, for whatever political or bureaucratic reasons, uses two departments to hand out foreign aid, both military and non-military: the State Department and the Defense Department. Yes, the Defense Department sends out non-military aid as well.

The thinktank quoted by CNN decision to  discuss only military aid  and only from the State Department budget. not total aid. The same document they link to shows over $50 billion in foreign aid in 2014 when you include non-military aid so Israel’s percentage goes down from more than half to around 6%.

New York Times Again Blasted for ‘Skewed’ Headline in Coverage of Palestinian Stabbing Attacks

Media watchdogs and Jewish groups on Sunday admonished the New York Times for publishing a headline about Palestinian stabbing attacks in Israel which “blur Palestinian culpability” in the incidents.

The “skewed” headline, “Israeli Police Officers Kill Two Palestinian Men,” appeared in Sunday’s edition of the prominent newspaper and detailed in the opening paragraph that the two “Palestinian men were fatally shot by the Israeli police after attacking officers with knives.”

“Why report the effect without the cause? Why continue to depict Palestinians as ‘just victims’?” watchdog group CAMERA asked in a blog post. “What is so hard about… [a] straightforward headline accurately depicting the nature and chronology of events?”…

Former U.N. investigator Richard Falk hails Hamas’ “spirit of resistance,” justifies the Palestinian use of violence, says Hamas aims for “long-term peaceful co-existence,” and attacks UN Watch for ruining his 6-year term as Special Rapporteur on Palestine.

Pimping Hamas Propaganda: BBC’s Bowen Blows Khaled Meshaal’s Trumpet

For the BBC’s scandalously biased “Middle East editor” Jeremy Bowen, as for other employees of Britain’s bloated left-leaning “national broadcaster” including members of Bowen’s equally biased team, the Guardian and Ha’aretz are clearly the go-to newspapers for opinion pieces regarding Israel.

Those two newspapers typify, of course, the jaundiced opinions of the Beeboids (as the Biased BBC website terms the Corporation’s hacks) themselves.

Bowen, Danahar, Donnison and the rest of the bunch can be relied upon to tweet and bignote (without any countervailing balance) articles in those papers that present Israel in a bad light.

Palestinians join ICC with Israelis in sights

(AFP) – The Palestinians formally gain membership of the International Criminal Court on Wednesday with the aim of pursuing Israelis for war crimes, despite uncertainty over the move’s wider ramifications.

The accession is another step in the Palestinian diplomatic and legal international campaign, which gained steam in 2014.

It has uncertain consequences, not only because it is highly unlikely Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and other Israelis will find themselves being tried at the ICC, but also because it constitutes a new deterioration in the strained relationship.

But the Palestinians are beyond caring.

Exasperated after decades of failed negotiations with Israel, with no perspective for the state they have been yearning, they have decided to take their case to the international arena…


Notice that AFP does not mention that negotiations have failed because of the Palestinians themselves.
