AN HONEST ENEMY IS BETTER THAN A FALSE FRIEND

May 14, 2017
Since Biblical times the Jewish People has experienced endlessly the validity of this admonition.

Nothing much has changed over the millennia. In fact if anything false friends have multiplied at an alarming rate. One would have thought that by now after thousands of years of dealing with this problem we would have developed a fail safe strategy for exposing and combating such individuals. Unfortunately there are still too many Jews who are seduced by seemingly genuine gestures and who even when the horrible truth hits them in the face do not want to face reality. The trick is to choose between genuine friends whose support derives from a deeply felt appreciation of the justice of Jewish history and those whose fair-weather gestures are cosmetic and transitory. ....

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.
