They portray Palestinians as angry rioters, and hide all the atrocities done by Israel.
Most of the violence is at the Palestinians by the Israelis, yet the media only focuses on the reaction of the helpless Palestinians to that violence.

Jew bashing again?
No, bashing the other murderous state in the ME which rivals Saudi Arabia in cruelty and oppression.October 17, 2018 at 00:07 #2949JeanParticipant
Because of inaccurate coverage of the Israeli occupation of Palestine in the West (USA and England) I started a thread on Israeli violence in Occupied Palestine. In America and England, because of their governments’ pro-Israel policies and consequent media spin, criticism of Israelis equates to antisemitism.October 17, 2018 at 01:20 #2951Desert_FoxParticipant
Being accused of Jew bashing shows the limits of the individual making the accusation. Criticizing a Jewish state doesn’t criticize the individuals of that state. Criticizing an Islamic nation such as Saudi Arabia doesn’t condemn the citizens of that country. Criticizing Trump doesn’t mean that one criticizes the citizens of America. While one may criticize individuals of those countries one doesn’t condemn the entire populace.
Mark either doesn’t know that fact or he just wants to condemn without reason. Or both.

American media’s new pro-Israel bias: the same party line at the wrong time
Evolving conversations on the ground demand probing questions on-air. So why does TV news look like a Netanyahu ad?

If Arafat had not reneged on the Oslo Accord we would see a Palestinian State today. So what is the holdup? The fact is that too many Palestinian politicians, etc have become rich by siphoning funds that are donated to implement an Israeli-Palestinian peace.
Militant Islam has always used Palestine as an excuse to violently attack Israel. The fiction of wanting a Palestinian state exists only as thin cover to justify Quranic calls for killing Jews.
You know this is true, but you persist in espousing this disingenuous Jew bashing lie.October 18, 2018 at 09:00 #2989

Meh, always distorting and justifying Netanyahu’s brutality with some irrelevant thing in the past.
So teenagers who weren’t even born then should be killed by Israel now because of some half truths from the past?
The tree biggest threat to humanity now comes from Trump,Netanyahu and Saudis. Each one of this psychopathic trio presents a different kind of threat, terror and destruction to the lives of innocent people and the planet.

Ronen Bergman, a staff writer for The New York Times Magazine, gave a talk to the Israel lobby group AIPAC in White Plains Monday night and lavished praise on AIPAC for its support of Israel.
“You know, I’ve been all over the U.S. with AIPAC and it’s always a great pleasure, as an Israeli. I always tell AIPAC, you do so much in the U.S., and I know that Israel is not the spirit of where you work, but you need to do a little more to explain to Israelis how much they owe AIPAC. Israelis are not aware. I am aware… I know that you’ve got our backs. It’s such a great feeling.”
AIPAC, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, is famous for its work to prevent any “daylight” between the U.S. government and the Israeli government on policy and maintain support for Israel in the U.S. Congress. It has been the subject of numerous investigations– generally not in the US mainstream press, and certainly not the New York Times.
Two congresspeople also spoke at the event at the synagogue Temple Israel, and over 400 people attended it. But the talk was closed to the press, according to two AIPAC screens over the synagogue sanctuary: “This event is off the record and closed to the press.” Circulars for the event did not include the off-the-record condition.October 20, 2018 at 19:49 #3157
They portray Palestinians as angry rioters (because they are).
It began when Israel was recognized as a state almost 60 years ago. All the neighboring Arabs jumped on, not because they loved the few Muslims that had been living in the are, but because their prophet during his Medina years commanded them to kill all the Jews. These Arabs didn’t give a shit about the Muslims living in the area, but they shared the “kill all the Jews” sick mentality they had been taught.
Proof that Arabs don’t care about Muslims of the West bank is that they don’t provide support or sustenance for them. That is still true today, hard as that is for some to admit.
Arafat realized that terrorism was the only leverage he had and endless Intifadas became the norm. The cold hard truth is that the Palestinians could have had peace and a sovereign nation anytime they wanted to, but they chose terrorism instead.
They chose first strike attacks on Israelis and Israel. Over and over ad nauseum. Will they ever learn?
Ask yourself why this absolute truth has been the norm since the partition.
Ask yourself if punishment for “killing Christ” is the real reason, or just an excuse to “kill all the Jews”.
Ask yourself why Jews have really been on so many shit lists. Jew bashing has been going on for centuries. I’ll give you a hint – banking and commerce. If you owe the Jewish bankers money that you can’t pay back the easiest solution is to “kill all the Jews”.
The three biggest threats to humanity now comes from Trump, Netanyahu and Sauds. Even you cross your fingers when you say that.

<h3 style=”text-align: center;”>Killings and massacres during the 1948 Palestine war</h3>
After about 30 years of nationalist conflict in Mandatory Palestine between Palestinian Arabs and Jewish Zionists and while no agreement could be found between parties, the British decided in February 1947 to terminate the Mandate and, on 29 November 1947, the United Nations General Assembly adopted Resolution 181 (II) recommending the adoption and implementation of a plan of partition of Palestine.
The vote was immediately followed by a civil war in which Palestinian Arabs (supported by the Arab Liberation Army) and Palestinian Jews, fought against each other while the region was still fully under British rule. On 15 May 1948, following the Israeli Declaration of Independence the previous day, the armies of a number of Arab countries invaded what had just ceased to be Mandatory Palestine, turning it into the 1948 Arab–Israeli War.
The war caused the death of more than 20,000 people. The yishuv and later the Israelis suffered between 5,700 and 5,800 dead. The number of victims on the Arab side is unclear, but according to Benny Morris, it might have been slightly higher. In his book, Morris also mentions an estimation of 12,000 by Haj Amin al-Husseini in 1950. These losses amounted to around 1 percent of the population of each community.

So in your opinion the Palestinians should just abandon the rights to their ancestral lands?

Jews were victims as well as terrorists at that time.
Palestinians have always been victims, and Israel now is an out of control rogue state, bribing US elected leaders to protect them from international law.
What’s happening now against the Palestinians is unacceptable and exposes the double standard and hypocrisy by the West as usual.
There is less or no value for human rights or human life if the oppressors are of white European descent, and the oppressed are not.
