Evening Standard: anti-Israel lies and Hamas propaganda


I have avoided reading the Evening Standard during the current conflict because of its well known anti-Israel bias. But I ended up looking at it today and, unsurprisingly, it followed all the media guidelines for reporting about Israel. Note the following:

I have submitted yet another formal complaint to the Press Complaints Commission about the lead article.

Incidentally the Standard was not alone in reporting that Israeli tank fire was the cause of the ceasefire breach. Every news report this morning in the UK was spitting blood at Israel with the same accusation. Even Fox News jumped on the bandwagon with its morning reporters speaking in the most appalling accusatory way about Israel's actions (very disappointed in particular with the tone used by Heather Childers of all people).

This Matan Gotlib story is a myth of epic proportions.
1. There weren't any Palestinian children involved.
2. COGAT has officially declared it wasn't a clinic much less a UN clinic. In fact for the last THREE years COGAT only had the house registered as a "sensitive area."
3. Israeli terrorists did break the ceasefire and have bombing Gaza continuously before the current ongoing massacre of innocent human beings.
4. There was no Israeli terrorist kidnapped!!!!!
5. A HUMAN interest piece regarding HUMAN NEWBORN TRIPLETS IS NEITHER anti-Semitic nor offensive.
5. Only a brain dead idiot would believe that ALL of a country's citizens are liable for the actions of that country's government.

There is no mention of Matan Gotlib here so what the hell are you talking about. In any case you clearly believe anything that Hamas says so no point in discussion.
