SPECIFIC ANTI-ISRAEL MEDIA PROPAGANDA

GENERAL INTRODUCTION

Today, when Israel and Jews are under attack throughout the world, when international organizations have been turned into lie factories targeting Israel, when the Jewish State is accused of the very crimes terrorism, murder, apartheid, genocide that her enemies are either guilty of or aspire to, an Israeli newspaper, owned and operated by Jews, is a primary propaganda organ of those enemies. Information on Ha’aretz is the subject of the first article in this set. The other articles also focus specifically on media’s calumny against Israel, which is, unfortunately, commonly accepted without question. Admittedly, they are aided and abetted by Palestinian leaders who have refined lying into a fine art when concocting narratives for the media. Jews started returning to their ancient homeland in droves in the late 19th century, restoring Judea, Samaria (often called the West Bank to conceal the ancient affinity of the Jews and their land) and what is now Israel. By 1920, when the Western allies had conquered the Ottoman land, the entire League of Nations gave the Jews a legal trust to their ancient land, anchored in the April 25, 1920 San Remo Resolution, that could not be broken. Jordan invaded the newborn Israel in 1948, grabbing Judea, Samaria and a piece of Jerusalem. When the Arabs invaded the Jewish State again in 1967, Israel was strong enough to redeemed its land. What the Arabs have been able to do is convince the world that the Jews did not live in Judea and Samaria until 1967, when they occupied the land militarily. Based on that wide-spread belief, Palestinian spokesmen have invented countless fantasies which have had the success the Arabs haven’t had on the battlefield. They have portrayed Israel as an outrageously repressive regime, routinely committing atrocities against the Palestinian people, a group of innocents that have done no harm. Their phony accusations have often been taken up eagerly and amplified by the media and such unbiased institutions as the International Criminal Court (ICC) and the UN
