The title of this blog is not mine. It is the title of Ari Lieberman’s devastating (because it offers facts, not BS) attack on the Washington Post and other media venues for their coverage of the Israel and Jew hatred increasingly spewed by the left.
Here is just a taste – which, I hope, causes you to click here and read the rest:
…on April 24th the Washington Post featured an article authored by Kristine Phillips with the following headline; “The ‘hotbed of anti-Semitism’ isn’t a foreign country. It’s U.S. college campuses, a new report says.” I was heartened by the headline. Alas, a major media outlet was finally drawing attention to the scourge of Muslim inspired anti-Semitism. Someone was actually paying attention. There was hope.
My enthusiasm was unfortunately short-lived. The 961 word article was devoid of any reference to the SJP, MSA or similar Muslim hate groups. No mention was given to the countless acts of anti-Semitism committed directly or indirectly by these groups. A discussion relating to anti-Semitism on college campuses without noting the SJP’s contribution to Jew hate is akin to a discussion on the Nazi concentration camps without noting that it was the Nazis who actually ran the camps.
As amply noted by the watchdog group Canary Mission, the social media accounts of members of these groups are liberally laced with vile anti-Semitic invective and conspiracy. SJP and MSA members routinely attempt to disrupt pro-Israel events. In some instances, Jewish themed events with no nexus to Israel are also subjected to disruption, such as when Hillel sponsored a Hanukkah party that was disrupted by barging SJP hooligans. Votes pertaining to matters of concern to Jewish students are often deliberately scheduled by the SJP and MSA on Jewish holidays to minimize Jewish student influence over the outcome. In at least one recorded incident, Muslim students cheered the intimidating Muslim battle cry of Allahuakbar after pushing through the passage of an anti-Israel student council resolution. Moreover, the SJP and MSA routinely espouse views that are consistent with the State Department’s definition of anti-Semitism.
Yet the Washington Post piece makes no mention of these and other unconscionable behaviors initiated by these hate-filled supremacists. Instead, the article reverts to the blame Trump game, placing indirect responsibility on his campaign for the surge of anti-Semitic incidents.
The Washington Post’s glaring omissions, likely intentional, represent classic yellow journalism and fake news and its worst. They should be ashamed.
I again urge you to use the link I’ve provided and read Mr. Lieberman’s entire article. Then, assuming you are a decent human being, you will be as disgusted by what you read – both the activities of the groups involved and the Washington Post’s “coverage” (note: it is far, far from the only media venue this could have been written about) as I am.
