TERROR KNOWS NO BOUNDARIES

18 April, 2017
The pervasive myth that maintains terror will vanish if only Israel appeases those dedicated to its destruction was proven yet again to be false this past week.

As Jews worldwide celebrated Passover which marks the beginning of our march towards nationhood in our land, further examples of hate fuelled terror literally exploded in various parts of the globe. All of them had a common thread. None of them had anything to do with a lack of a “Palestinian” Arab State and everything to do with intolerance combined with barbaric disregard for civilized norms. The common denominator is the politically incorrect generally shunned words “Islamic terror.” Thankfully, recognition of what we are facing today has been reinstated in Washington even if it is still ignored as a reality in other capitals. ....

Radio New Zealand does it again

June 22, 2016 by Michael Kuttner from J-Wire
Israel media monitor Honest Reporting has found Radio New Zealand incapable or unwilling to ascertain the veracity of news reports about Israel emanating from well-known suspect sources.

The latest example of repeating blatantly biased news revolves around a news item issued originally by Al Jazeera in which Israel is accused of shutting off water supplies to the “West Bank” and its Palestinian Arab residents. Picked up by the likes of The Independent (UK), International Business Times and the Times of London this modern-day equivalent of the medieval well poisoning libels against Jews soon went viral.

Despite evidence provided by Israeli authorities demonstrating that the accusations were false, Radio NZ decided to air an interview with a Palestinian Arab “expert” who of course recycled this litany of lies. Once again no interview with any Israeli official was aired to counter the falsehoods broadcast.
