London Evening Standard blood libels Israel - but gives Syrian regime murderers benefit of doubt

Blood libel - and classic Pali photo stunt

One of my previous posts about Western media reporting on Israel is typically pertinent in the way the media have handled the latest rocket barrage (nearly 200 since Friday) against Israel from Gaza  (Elder of Ziyon has been doing a great job both reporting the truth and also the media lies). But the worst example is surely in tonight's London Evening Standard - a free mass circulation paper. Despite the catastrophic impact on Israeli daily life, every one of the 21 Palestinians killed in Israel's response have been Islamic Jihad and PRC terrorists (confirmed by the terrorist organisations themselves). Yet the Standard is leading with a story - which turns out to be false - that Israel has killed a 16-year-old boy in 'school uniform'.  As Elder reports even the notoriously anti-Israel biased AFP asserts that:
acording to an AFP correspondent at the scene, there were no signs of any impact on the ground which could have been caused by a missile, with the most likely cause of his death being some kind of explosive device he was carrying
What is also fascinating is that this is by far the most extensively reported foreign news story, despite it being on a day when: an American soldier killed 16 civilians in Afghanistan, there were multiple suicide bombings by Islamists killings dozens of Christians in Nigeria, a massive suicide bombing by Islamists killing 19 mourners at a funeral in Pakistan, not to mention other suicide bombings by Islamists in Pakistan and Iraq. Moreover, today in Homs Syria 45 bodies - all women and children brutually massacred have been discovered and very graphically shown elsewhere. Note that the Standard does partly 'cover' this story in a very small article underneath the large Israel blood libel article. But note two things: 1) the Standard reports 12 deaths even though the Syrian resistence claimed 45, i.e. unlike the claims of the Palestinan terrorists, it does not automatically accept whatever they say as being true; 2) the word 'murdered' is in inverted commas in the title, in stark contrast to Israel kills schoolboy in the other headline.

Is it any wonder that my daughter - who goes to a Jewish School asks me why Twitter is trending with "Israel is a terrorist nation"? (update: this is also partly due to a fraudulant UN worker tweet).

Update 14 March: This morning several major media outlets were reporting that an 8-year old Palestinian boy had died from injuries sustained in an Israeli air strike (incredibly the Jerusalem Post had this as its top story this morning). It turns out - as reported by even the notoriously anti-Israel AP - that contrary to the previous Palestinian claim lapped up without question by all news agencies: 
The boy’s relatives and witnesses later said the boy was marching in a funeral procession for a Gaza militant when he was struck in the head by an errant bullet. At the time, gunmen were firing in the air, they said.

Isreal is an illegal racist state pushing its borders into Palestine by means of force and backed by masonic and jewish controlled western governments and their armies, whom attack christians and arabs in the name of zionism,(spell it right next time)to gain complete control of the middle east. The reason the masonic media stopped reporting about the arab killing jews in France is because the entire situation was created by yourselves and you couldn't put the blame conviently on a white person, you racist scum. Europe wouldn't be flooded with muslims and ethnics if it wasn't for a) your cultural marxist polices against indeginous white people and b) ressetlement of arabs in europe thanks to the 1973 oil crisis created by YOUR jewish yom kipper war. Jews have far too much undemocratic control over the west in all areas (media/banks/politics etc) and arabs know this. It serves racist jews two purposes to have europe flooded with ethnics. It divdes white people up and while they become proccupied with their own ethnicide, they don't look into the cause...racist zionist jews. The cause of tens of millions white european deaths, aryan genocide, black slavery the list of atrocities jews are behind is insurmountable. If you don't know any of this you are either lying or deliberatly ignorant. You think your so elite in the world (Gods choosen people)that you couldn't be touched, but arabs aren't the jews slaves. Some people aren't fools to your jewish greed.

Hi anonymous
