Before Vice President Mike Pence addressed Israel's government on Monday, "13 Israeli-Arab members of Israel's Parliament held up signs saying 'Jerusalem is the Capital of Palestine' and were forcibly removed by security as Pence started to speak," according to NBC News chief foreign affairs correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
Max Fisher’s latest explainer piece in Monday’s New York Times, “How the Right Took Israel’s Side,” attacked President Trump and conservatives in general for supporting Israel for no good reason. After flubbing basic facts about the U.S. embassy move to Jerusalem in favor of anti-Israel assertions in December, Fisher again revealed himself untrustworthy on an issue he pays special attention to, offering grossly misleading characterizations of Republican attitudes toward the Israel-Palestinian dilemma.
New York Times Education reporter Erica Green picked a bizarre fight against a Trump nominee for being too concerned about anti-Semitic violence on campus -- unless one remembers how hostile the paper is to pro-Israel voices and how accommodating it is to radical pro-Islamic ones: “An Advocate for Israel, Named to a Civil Rights Post, Draws Criticism” was the headline in Friday’s Times. The text box took the anti-Israel critics to heart: “Opponents see a narrow focus as a hurdle to fairness.”
It’s ironic how liberal celebrities preach tolerance and acceptance but apparently possess neither. After singer Lorde announced her decision to cancel her concert in Tel Aviv, Rabbi Shmuley Boteach and World Values Network took out an ad in the Washington Post to criticize her for her decision. While the ad went after Lorde, it also targeted the media in New Zealand, which influenced Lorde to make her decision.
It seems someone at CBS thought it was a good idea to send correspondent Mark Phillips all the way to Germany and do a full report about the Berlin Wall just to suggest that all walls are bad, and therefore undermine President Donald Trump's push for a border wall, as well as Israel's security barrier which has likely saved thousands from being murdered by suicide bombers.
As I laid down beside my Mother in an Israeli hospital bed, I couldn't believe she was wounded, just as I was as a little girl when rubble had fallen on top of me after Islamic terrorists blew up my home. I was then in disbelief at what I witnessed.
Israel doctors and nurses were attending to Islamic radicals, who they knew full well would love to see every Jew on earth perish.
Over the weekend, several police officers were shot and injured in Pennsylvania in an apparent terrorist attack by a man from Egypt. CBS has so far managed to stand out by completely ignoring the story as ABC, NBC, CNN, FNC and MSNBC have all to some extent given attention to the subject.
Pop stars and celebrities are no strangers to liberal media influence.
Singer Lorde decided to cancel a concert in Tel Aviv after reading a pro-Palestine criticism published in a New Zealand magazine called The Spinoff. In the article, headlined, “Dear Lorde, Here’s Why We’re Urging You Not to Play Israel,” Nadia Abu-Shanab and Justine Sachs wrote, “A performance in Israel sends the wrong message. Playing in Tel Aviv will be seen as giving support to the policies of the Israeli government, even if you make no comment on the political situation.”
On Monday, CBS This Morning was alone among the morning newscasts in ignoring Guatemala's announcement that it will be first to follow the U.S. lead and recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, and move its embassy there. The CBS Evening News also avoided mentioning Guatemala as ABC's World News Tonight and the NBC Nightly News were both preempted.
In a Thursday vote that was more for show than for substance, the United Nations General Assembly in a vote of 128-9 (with 34 abstentions) condemned the United States for rightfully declaring Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. And during NBC Nightly News, the network flaunted the decision by the elitist body, touted their rebuke of the U.S., and described the U.S. as somehow acting like a “bully.” All while ignoring the U.N.’s history of targeted anti-Semitism.
NBC News chief foreign affairs correspondent Andrea Mitchell played the role of Obama administration hack on Monday afternoon, bewailing President Trump’s national security speech as a rejection of his predecessor’s world view on everything from climate change to Israel to trade to the United Nations.
The every-more radical Newsweek’s blame-Trump-for-everything philosophy reached a nadir Monday afternoon, with the headline “Because of Trump, People Are Burning Israeli Flags and Attacking Jews.” Sadly, Jews have been attacked in Europe long before Donald Trump arrived on the political scene. A more accurate headline would read: “Because They Hate Jews, Radical Muslims Are Burning Israeli Flags and Attacking Jews.”
