Taking a page from the jihad journalism of the New York Times, The Washington Post has joined the chorus of media Jew haters by spreading Arab myths and lies. WaPo is dishonest in their reporting and analysis, attempting to victimize the Pali savages while demonizing the Jewish victims. It all eerily echos pre-war Germany and the demonization of the Jew.
The unending undulating promise of annihilation of the Jews, inculcation of Muslim children in Islamic countries to hate, to kill the infidel, to aspire to be homicide bombers, honor killings, clitorectomies, wife beating blah blah blah is under reported - given a free pass by the moral inverters at WaPo.
Instead of reporting and throwing much needed light on the unimaginable tragedy averted by some divine hand in Sderot on Thursday;
..... a catastrophe was averted this time because the missile barely missed: (IRIS blog here)
Ten children, and eight others, are suffering from trauma in the Negev city of Sderot after a Kassam rocket slammed down just 40 meters from an elementary school. The attack occured around 11 AM.
This is but one of under 7,000 rockets fired into southern Israel since 2003. Does WaPo discuss that Islamic terror? What if rockets were fired into the elementary school of WaPo editors? How would they report on that?
Instead what you have is taqiya (advancing Islamic lies.) From CAMERA;
WASHINGTON POST OBSESSED WITH ISRAELI 'MISTREATMENT' OF ARABS;
Second time in six days, 'blame Israel' coverage gets front-page placementSix days ago an unbalanced, front page news feature headlined "Sealed Off By Israel, Gaza Reduced to Beggary," blamed Israel for Palestinian Arab suffering caused by Israeli reaction to Palestinian terrorism. Today The Washington Post jerked the same knee. "For Israel's Arab Citizens, Isolation and Exclusion" (December 20) also got front page treatment, and reconfirmed the paper's narrow, misleading perspective on Arab-Israeli news.Basic factual errors:1) Jerusalem bureau chief Scott Wilson, who also wrote "Sealed Off By Israel" and who's been named the paper's new foreign editor, says "except for a relatively small Druze population, Arabs are excluded also from military service mandatory for all but ultra-Orthodox Jews, an essential shared experience of Israeli life ...."That would be news to the many Israeli Bedouin, Arab Muslims, who have served in the Israel Defense Forces over the decades, often in key roles as scouts and trackers. Contrary to Wilson, Arabs are not "excluded" from serving in the Israeli military; rather, they are not required to serve, as most Israeli Jews are. No law stops them from volunteering, however. Indeed, Ha'aretz (normally a source the Washington Post would embrace since it is often unfairly critical of Israel) reported in a 2004 article titled "Number of Muslim, Christian Arab volunteers in IDF growing" that:
New figures made available by the Israel Defense Forces show the number of Muslim and Christian Arab Israeli volunteers in the army is growing. The deaths of five soldiers from the IDF's Desert Reconnaissance Unit (the so-called Bedouin unit) in an attack on an army outpost near Rafah earlier this month drew public attention to the service of Bedouin in the IDF.
However, the reports on the incident paid little attention to the fact that most of the dead were not Bedouin: Three of the five soldiers killed were Muslim Arabs from villages in the Galilee and Triangle, who had volunteered for military service.CAMERA got a November 3 correction from The Los Angeles Times on just this error.2) Wilson writes that Israeli Jews outnumber Israeli Arabs "five to one in a population of about 6.5 million people."There are two basic factual errors here: Israel's population is not "about 6.5 million people," it is 7.2 million, according to the Israeli Central Bureau of Statistics. And the Jewish population does not account for 80 percent to the Arab population's 20, which would be a "five to one" ratio. Rather, subtracting 310,000 "others," mostly non-Jewish relatives of Jewish immigrants, the recognized permanent population is 76 percent Jewish. But subtracting also another estimated 200,000 non-Jewish foreign workers, Israeli Jews constitute barely 75 percent of the total, outnumbering Israeli Arabs by about four to one, not five to one.Add these fundamental errors of omission:Wilson focuses on a young, attractive, well-educated Arab Israeli couple, Ahmad and Fatima Zubeidat. They apparently are the type of couple most Americans wouldn't mind having as neighbors. Yet an Israeli government agency denied their application to move into a new Jewish community built on state land. The article indicts Israeli government and the larger Jewish society for not investing in Israeli Arab towns and villages on par with Jewish areas, and specifically for not letting the Zubeidats move to the new Galilee town of Rakefet.3) What the article does not report, to the positive:* The average Israeli Arab is (like the Zubeidats) better educated, more prosperous, and freer religiously and politically than the citizens of most Arab countries throughout the Middle East;* Israeli Arabs enjoy the same legal rights, if not economic and social standing, as Israeli Jews;* Israeli Arabs hold 12 of the Knesset's (parliament's) 120 seats. One is a deputy speaker (and was temporary acting president). Israel Arab members exercised the balance of power on key decisions, making possible formation of Yitzhak Rabin's government in 1992 and passage of both the Oslo I and Oslo II accords;* An Arab is one of Israel's 14 Supreme Court justices;* Arab ambassadors and consuls represent Israel in a number of countries; and, for example,* An Arab woman, Rana Raslan, won the Miss Israel contest in 1999 and represented the country in the Miss World competition.4) What the article does not report, to the negative:* Wilson mentions without the necessary detail that "Israel's Arabs ... commonly refer to themselves as Palestinian citizens of Israel ...." Actually, increasing numbers refer to themselves as "Palestinian by nationality, Israeli by citizenship" ("A Day on the Green Line," by Eric Rozenman, B'nai B'rith's International Jewish Monthly, Fall, 2002) - a troubling bi-polarity for a state subjected to renewed Palestinian terror warfare since 2000;* Until the 1993 - 1998 Oslo process and the start of the "al-Aqsa intifada" in 2000, instances of disloyalty by Israeli Arabs were rare. Since then, however, hundreds have been arrested on charges of participation in anti-Israel terrorism, including murder.* Many Israeli Arabs participated in anti-Jewish riots inside Israel at the start of the second intifada, including in the Galilee;* Arab Knesset members have challenged the Jewish character of the state. Some have sided, at least rhetorically, with Israel's enemies, including the Palestinian Liberation Organization under Yasser Arafat, Syria, and Hezbollah;* Long before the "al-Aqsa intifada," Israeli Arab attitudes included those of popular poet and anti-Zionist Knesset member Tawiq Zayyad, whose poem "Here We Will Remain" told Israeli Jews: "We will lie on your chest like a wall/ Stick in your throat like a piece of glass ... We will sing the songs/ Fill the streets with demonstrations/ Fill the jails with honor and make children/ Each generation more revolutionary than the one before it."; and* While Hamas attacks Israel from the Gaza Strip and West Bank, a leader of Israel's internal Islamic fundamentalist organization, the so far non-violent Islamic Movement, has stated - in a religious dialogue with Jews - that in the Holy Land, "only Muslims can rule here."Without this missing information, how are Post readers - the majority of whom are likely to believe American-style efforts at minority integration should be the norm -- to understand the final paragraph:"'I'm very left-wing, but I think Arabs should live in one place, ultra-Orthodox Jews in one place, secular Jews in one place and so on,' [Nadav] Garmi [of the town in which the Zubeidats have been denied residency] said. 'If you want a good neighbor, you have to have a place for everybody. It's best not to mix too much.'"Perhaps as confirmation of "those prejudiced, anti-Arab Israelis."
