 Christianne Amanpour nominated for ‘Emmy Award for Biggest Disappointment’? [God’s warriors?]

Is there an Emmy Award for Biggest Disappointment?If so, I nominate CNN’s three-part series, “God’s Warriors,” hosted or read or fronted — but certainly not reported – by Christiane Amanpour. The investigation – their claim – into radicals of the Jewish, Christian and Muslim persuasion was CNN’s highest-rated documentary ever, which just goes to show: Scratch any responsible news organization deep enough and you’ll find a shallow, sensationalizing ratings whore.The big reveal of the program was this: There are extremists out there ready to blow us up or hijack our elections.There was no analysis: not what these extremists have in common, not how they’ve risen and fallen throughout history; not how moderates can effectively counteract them, not even the relative numbers of extremists within each religion. Just this: they exist – as if we had never heard of Jerry Falwell and weren’t watching TV on Sept. 11.

As for Amanpour’s segment on God’s Jewish “warriors,” it managed to be both insidious and laughable. She rightly mentioned Jewish extremists like Baruch Goldstein, the doctor who slaughtered Muslims in prayer in Hebron, but failed to note that while the Israeli government and the vast majority of Jews take pains to prosecute and condemn their extremists, Muslim nations fund or sanction theirs.

Amanpour then focused on Jewish settlers in the West Bank and Gaza who claim God deeded that land to the Jewish people and oppose giving up their homes under any circumstances. She failed to point out that it is indeed the Israeli government these people are fighting – theirs is not some global campaign to force Jewish law upon the West…

CNN’s God’s Warriors at war with truth

CNN’s God’s Warriors at war with truth Jerusalem Post ^

8-26-07 R. Marvin Hier

West of Delancey http://blogcentral.jpost.com/index.php?cat_id=&blog_id=63: CNN’s God’s Warriors at war with truth Posted by Rabbi Marvin Hier

A day prior to the airing of Christiane Amanpour’s six-hour CNN documentary entitled God’s Warriors, I was one of four clergymen to be a guest on Larry King Live to discuss the issue of fundamentalism in today’s world. The interview on Larry King was pre-recorded in mid-July and none of the participants had seen the six-hour documentary because it was still being edited. Now that I have seen it, I sent the following critique to the producers of God’s Warriors.

1. MORAL EQUIVALENCY – There is no moral equivalency between some 200 Israeli fanatics prone to violence and tens of thousands of Palestinian terrorists whose acts are endorsed by the elected government and a significant portion of the population. The failure of the documentary to clearly make that distinction skews the facts and conveys the false impression allowing people all over the world to conclude that there IS a moral equivalency between the number of Palestinian terrorists and Jewish terrorists – this is a complete distortion. More importantly, the largest terrorist group responsible for much of the unrest in the Middle East, Hamas, got a free pass from CNN in God’s Warriors and is not even mentioned in the documentary’s segment on Islam.

2. JEWISH LOBBY – CNN spends much time describing the strength of the “Jewish Lobby” in Washington. But what do supporters of Israel active on the Hill have to do with a documentary focusing on the power of religion? Indeed, many of those defending Israel on Capital Hill are, in fact, secular Jews. Furthermore, if you are going to talk about powerful lobbies, why not give equal time to the enormous power of the Arab Oil lobby?

3. SECURITY FENCE (Hamas Wall) – The consultants of the documentary make a point of showing the security fence that now separates the Palestinians from the Israelis. Palestinians interviewed explain the hardships they face and call the fence an “apartheid” wall. Nowhere is there a mention of the wide consensus of support for the security fence amongst all Israelis, left and right, including Israel’s Supreme Court, which has sanctioned the fence because, without it, the suicide bombings would continue unabated, something NO society can tolerate. Indeed, the terrorist groups like Hamas and Islamic Jihad are the real architects and designers of that fence.

4. FIGHTING TERRORISM – God’s Warrior’s makes mention of the fact that the few Jewish terrorists described in the film were all arrested by the Israeli government and sent to jail for their crimes. Yet, they ignore the fact that Palestinian officials have never convicted Palestinian terrorists. Had they done so, there would be no need for a security fence.

5. SIX DAY WAR – The documentary spends a lot of time on the Six Day War and emphasizes how Israel decided to attack the Old City during the War, which changed the status quo forever. But God’s Warriors fails to explain how or why the Six Day War started. It hides from its audience the fact that Egypt blocked the Straits of Tiran (an international waterway), an act of war under international law, denying all shipping to Israel and that the Arab States, including Jordan, which controlled the Old City, brought their armies to the border. Had they not taken those actions, the Six Day War would have been averted. By ignoring all that and instead focusing on Israel’s attack on the Old City, God’s Warriors guides its audience to the conclusion that the purpose of the War was Israel’s intention to grab the Old City of Jerusalem.

6. SHARON – The documentary is critical of Sharon’s visit to the Temple Mount, which enraged Muslims and allegedly started the Second Intifada. It also mentions his “responsibility” in allowing Lebanese Christians to massacre Muslims at Sabra and Shatila. Yet, it ignores his critical decision to unilaterally withdraw from Gaza in an attempt to jump start the peace process. Nor does it mention the Palestinian response to the withdrawal – the election of Hamas – a terrorist organization dedicated to the destruction of the State of Israel – as the new Palestinian government.

7. TEMPLE MOUNT – The documentary fails to emphasize that the Muslims, to whom Israel gave the authority to administer the Temple Mount, strongly discourage any Jew from coming there despite the fact that it is the holiest site in all of Judaism (whereas, the holiest sites in Islam are, in fact, Mecca and Medina). On the other hand, the Western Wall, which is under Israeli control, regularly welcomes visitors of all faiths.

8. RELIGIOUS LEADERS – CNN presents the senior Imam in charge of the Al-Aksa Mosque on the Temple Mount, who explains the site’s holiness to Muslims. But rather than interview the Chief Rabbi of Israel to describe the sacredness of the site for Jews, CNN contents itself with allowing an extremist layperson to explain the importance of the Temple Mount to Jews. Where is the fairness?

9. TWO STATE SOLUTION – God’s Warriors ignores the origins of the Arab/Israeli conflict: the Arab refusal to accept the 1947 United Nations Partition of Palestine, which called for both a Jewish state and an Arab State. The Jews accepted the plan – the Arabs rejected it. Had the Arab world accepted the two-state solution then, much of the bloodshed would have been averted. There’s a lot of talk about settlements, but no talk at all of the consistent Arab policy from 1948 until 1978 to make no compromises with Israel.

10. A HUMAN FACE ON TERROR – God’s Warriors keeps mentioning the “despair” that many Arabs feel, as if that is a justification for the insane behavior of honoring people as martyrs because they murdered innocent civilians they never knew. Why patronize terrorists and even humanize them if we are going to allow the conversation to be dominated by their despair? The parents of these terrorists should be confronted with the simple truth that despair has existed throughout time – that billions of people throughout history have felt pain without reverting to mass murder. Following the defeat of Nazism, the Holocaust survivors were also in despair. They lost their families, but they didn’t resort to killing innocent civilians as a way of alleviating their pain. Neither did the 750,000 Jews expelled from Arab countries following the 1948 War – they too, did not become suicide bombers.

Re: Arabist Christianne Amanpour, Errors in CNN’s “G-d’s Jewish Warriors” Noted

August 30, 2007

Re: Araqbist Christianne Amanpour, Errors in CNN’s “G-d’s Jewish Warriors” Noted

by Hillel Fendel
http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/123512

(IsraelNN.com) http://CAMERA.org – the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America – has published a detailed, scathing attack on the two-hour television program “God’s Jewish Warriors.”

CNN’s Christiane Amanpour is the creator of a three-part CNN television series entitled “G-d’s Warriors.” The segment on Jews is the “most poisonously biased and factually shoddy feature to air on mainstream American television in recent memory,” writes CAMERA’s Executive Director Andrea Levin – and supports her claim with examples and refutations.

Levin begins by attacking the basic premise of the series, which purports to examine how Jewish, Christian and Muslim religious beliefs impact on the Middle East and the world. It is “deeply false,” she writes, to equate “Jewish (and Christian) religious fervency with that of Muslims heard endorsing ‘martyrdom,’ or suicide-killing. There is, of course, no counterpart among Jews and Christians to the violent jihadist Muslim campaigns underway across the globe… To demonstrate the supposed threat of Jewish fundamentalism, the few cases of Jewish terrorism – a handful spanning decades with each one overwhelmingly denounced by Israeli society and with those involved arrested, tried and jailed – are elaborated on at length and cast as a profound peril.”

Illegal, Illegal
Levin then focuses on Amanpour’s repeated emphasis on the Jewish towns in Judea and Samaria and their supposed illegality – implying that just as extremist Moslems endanger the world with their terrorism, so do the Jews with their “settlements.”

“Throughout,” writes Levin, “Amanpour hammers the claim that Jewish settlements violate international law, and she seeks to paint this position as a universally accepted view with a lopsided parade of like-minded commentators. [However,] many legal scholars argue these communities are, in fact, legal… Such experts include Meir Shamgar, former Israeli Supreme Court Justice, internationally renowned legal scholar Professor Julius Stone and Former Under Secretary of State Eugene Rostow, among others. But not one scholar of this viewpoint is given voice in a two-hour feature largely devoted to decrying settlements and their residents.”

Levin then moves on to Amanpour’s presentation of US presidents speaking against the Jewish towns. “Ronald Reagan [is seen] making a tangential comment framed as agreeing” that “substantial resettlement of the Israeli civilian population in occupied territories, including East Jerusalem, is illegal,” Levin writes – while in fact, Reagan did not agree at all. Levin quotes Reagan, based on a February 1981 New York Times story, as having said explicitly, “I believe the settlements there… they’re not illegal.”

More Errors
Others of the report’s errors and deceptions noted by Levin:

* Jimmy Carter, whose recent incendiary allegations against Israel have been extensively debunked, declares that no Member of Congress could vote against aid to Israel “and hope to be reelected.” Amanpour does not remind him or the viewers of the numerous Members who have opposed aid to Israel and have been repeatedly reelected, including Senate Majority leader Robert Byrd and more than a dozen Representatives.

* Amanpour claims that former Pres. Bush opposed loan guarantees for Israel but collapsed under the weight of Jewish pressure and backed down. In fact, however, when Yitzchak Rabin was elected prime minister, he offered concessions that satisfied the Administration – such that it was Israel that back-tracked, not Bush.

* Amanpour declares that “the 40-year tug of war over Jerusalem began when Israel bulldozed the Arab neighborhood next to the Western Wall and built a plaza where Jews now pray.” Levin: “Obviously, the modern battle over Jerusalem “began” 60 years ago when the Arabs attacked in 1948 to destroy the newborn state of Israel, seizing the eastern side of Jerusalem, including the Jewish quarter of the old city. Every Jew was expelled or killed and all synagogues destroyed. Thereafter for 19 years, no Jew could pray at the Western Wall, and Christians had limited access to their holy sites.”

“CNN needs to correct every error and slander against Israel and its American supporters,” Levin demands. “More importantly, it needs to air an accurate and contextual documentary on these subjects, just as lavishly funded and promoted as Amanpour’s, that will set the record straight.”

Another CAMERA article comparing the “Warriors” programs on Jews and Muslims notes that while the former was heavily devoted to “the influence of pro-Israel activists in America, … Amanpour utterly neglected to report on the powerful Oil Lobby, primarily Saudi-backed, and numerous other Muslim organizations seeking to influence American public opinion and foreign policy decisions.”

Four Times More
CAMERA notes fascinatingly that Amanpour “harps on the phrase ‘Jewish warriors,’ repeating it 20 times in the first episode,” while mentioning “Muslim warriors” only four times in the second program. “Why does she utter the words ‘Jewish warrior’ five times more often than ‘Muslim warrior’ when violent Muslims have inflicted thousands of times more death and destruction in the world than violent Jews have?”

Furthermore, “There was a noticeably gentler and more cordial tone toward Muslim extremists, in contrast to the often snide and hectoring tone displayed toward pro-Israel Americans and Israeli settlers.”

“Amanpour included two apolitical segments with appealing devout Muslim women,” CAMERA wrote, “who talked about why they wear a head covering and how Islam enriches their lives. No such apolitical segment about devout Jews appeared in ‘God’s Jewish Warriors.'”

Arab Muslim Palestinians back caliphate [Global domination over the world] over politics

Palestinians back caliphate over politics

By Carolynne Wheeler in Kfar Aqab, West Bank

Last Updated: 1:16am BST 27/08/2007

By day, they are the middle class, putting in days as mild-mannered teachers, factory supervisors and office clerks.

Palestinian supporters of the Islamic Hizb ut-Tahrir movement

Tens of thousands of Palestinian supporters of the Islamic Hizb ut-Tahrir movement demonstrate at a rally in Ramallah

But by night, the growing number of supporters of Hizb ut-Tahrir, the Islamic fundamentalists who reject modern democracy in favour of a pan-Islamic religious caliphate, are gathering in the West Bank to recruit the thousands who have grown disillusioned with the vicious stand-off between the secular Fatah and Islamist Hamas.

“Any person living in Palestine now realises political parties, especially the Islamic ones, have not achieved anything for the individual,” said Sheikh Abu Abdullah, a thin-framed man with a wiry beard.

His is the commanding voice behind weekly Hizb lessons at the al-Faruq mosque in the middle-class suburb of Kfar Aqab, past a crowded Israeli checkpoint where east Jerusalem melds into Ramallah.

About 50 men, young and old, stayed after evening prayers this week to listen to the sheikh’s lesson entreating them to follow the Koran and stop infidels from profiting at the expense of the poor – one of an estimated hundreds or thousands of mosques in the West Bank and east Jerusalem where Hizb ut-Tahrir now teaches every week.

Though difficult to estimate their membership, a rally earlier this month in Ramallah drew at least 10,000 and, by some estimates, up to 40,000 people; their posters are plastered on every wall in the city centre.

“Any talk about a return to the caliphate, any talk about a return to religious values is something that is attractive to people,” said Majid Abu Malah, 55, an Arabic-language teacher who attends regularly.

He, like many others, says he has given up on both Hamas and Fatah, and will not vote in the next election. “I believe in what [Hizb ut-Tahrir] gives.”

Hizb ut-Tahrir, founded in Jerusalem in 1953 but largely dormant until recent years, is banned in dozens of countries, though it is legal and has a strong presence in Britain.

Its platform calls for the eventual overthrowing of Arab-world governments to be replaced by a caliphate, which would also encompass Israel.

The organisation argues that it does not advocate violence; however, it has been accused of inciting racism and hatred, and is known for activities such as demonstrations against cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed last year.

In neighbouring Israel, intelligence experts say the Israeli security services are presently more occupied with Hamas and other violent Islamist groups, but consider it a growing menace.

“It’s a major threat,” said Eitan Azani, a colonel in Israel’s army reserve and deputy director of the country’s Institute of Counter-Terrorism, of the organisation.

He gave warning that its recruiting tactics and teachings of strict Islamic law can lead eager followers into involvement with violent offshoots.

“This is the factory that produces, at the end of the day, the jihadis that operate in global terrorism,” Col Azani said.

Inside the West Bank, the rise of the Islamist group is being met with increasing concern from secular Palestinians still hoping for democracy and a two-state solution with Israel, as well as from Hamas which is seeing its support eroded by the group.

This month’s rally met with roadblocks and harassment from Palestinian security services, while imams have been placed under the control of a government ministry and warned to keep politics out of their mosques.

Calls for early elections have raised fears that Islamist movements will once again carry the legislature – or that so few people will vote that the elections will be meaningless.

“The only thing that is obvious is that Hizb ut-Tahrir is on the rise,” said Hani al-Masri, a journalist and political commentator involved in a new secular political movement. “If we do not get new trends, new parties, in the Palestinian arena, a group like Hizb ut-Tahrir will definitely benefit from this vacuum.”

ZOA: Why Does Olmert Evict Jews, But Not Arabs, From Unauthorized Dwellings

New York — Following yesterday’s forcible eviction by some 3,000 Israeli military personnel of two Jewish families from their homes in Hebron who had been originally promised permits by the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) that were later denied to them by the Attorney-General, Menachem Mazuz, ZOA National President Morton A. Klein, Chairman of the Board Dr Michael Goldblatt, and Dr. Daniel Mandel, Director of the ZOA Center for Middle East Policy have issued the following statement:

“We are shocked and deeply concerned by the deployment of 3,000 Israeli armed personnel of the Jewish state of Israel to evict two Jewish families from their homes and destroy the holy place of worship, the Shalhevet Pass synagogue, named in commemoration of the ten-month-old baby murdered by a Palestinian Authority (PA) sniper in 2001. At a time when little or no action is being taken by the Olmert government against deadly Arab terrorists incessantly firing rockets into Israel (causing one half of the town of Sderot to flee for their lives) and smuggling offensive weaponry into Gaza, it is spending its finite resources and energy to evict Jews from their homes and denying permits that have been promised to them by the IDF Commander of Forces in Judea and Samaria, General Yair Golan. One must ask why the government seems intent on evicting these heroic Jewish families from their small dilapidated homes with maximum show of force. Some have suggested it is for political reasons in order to galvanize support from Israel’s left-wing, Olmert’s only remaining possible supporters.

“Worse, the Israeli government claims to be enforcing the law against residents promised permits by the IDF, a promise that was subsequently and arbitrarily breached by the government. These homes, incidentally, were built on the site of originally Jewish-owned property which was destroyed following the Hebron massacre in 1929, in which 67 Jews were murdered.

In the meantime, against illegal Arab housing construction occurring all over Judea and Samaria and in other parts of Israel including Jerusalem, the Olmert government continues to do almost nothing and pretends the problem doesn’t exist. Much of this illegal housing is funded by Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Morocco and other Arab states in an effort to move towards de-Judaizing Israel and Jerusalem……

Who needs Israel anyway? Let’s face it, we all do!

Who needs Israel anyway?

Posted: July 21, 2007 1:00 a.m. Eastern

http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=56783

The above question, either in word or implication, is being voiced by way too many these days, as people and governments cast about desperately for lasting solutions in the Middle East.
Many Western and European political leaders – having heard the deprecations and the determination to wipe Israel off the face of the earth, from the likes of Palestinian Yasser Arafat, Saudi Arabian Osama bin Laden, Iraq’s Saddam Hussein, Iran’s Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, and so many other power brokers in the region – have come dangerously close to deciding that little Israel is the “thorn in the side” of world order.
The next logical thought is: “Who needs Israel? Let her be erased, her people dispersed (or whatever), and the Middle East can settle comfortably into a harmonious Islamic community of states. Problem solved!”
What folly. What suicidal blindness.
I just returned from a momentous event in our nation’s capital. An organization called Christians United for Israel, or CUFI, convened 4,000 people from all 50 states in several days of briefings and strategy sessions, culminating in an exhilarating, rousing rally in the D.C. Convention Center featuring Jewish leaders and top Christian ministers celebrating the things we hold in common and the spiritual bonds that unite us. The next day, several thousand of the participants fanned out over Washington and Capitol Hill, lobbying virtually every representative and senator on behalf of Israel and its sovereignty.

Why? Couldn’t we all see this is an exercise in futility, an unnecessary bother … that we’d all be better off if Israel didn’t exist?

No, we all see clearly that the world needs Israel. The whole world.

What do I mean? Consider:

* Israel, the 100th smallest country, with less than 1/1000th of the world’s population, can make claim to an astounding number of society’s advances in almost every direction!
Intel’s new multi-core processor was completely developed at facilities in Israel.

* And our ubiquitous cell phone was developed in Israel by Motorola, which has its largest development center in the little land.

* Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) technology was pioneered in Israel.
AirTrain JFK – the 8.1-mile light rail labyrinth that connects JFK Airport to NYC’s mass transit – is protected by the Israeli-developed Nextiva surveillance system.

* Bill Gates calls Israel “a major player in the high-tech world”; most of Windows NT operating system was developed by Microsoft-Israel; the Pentium MMX Chip technology was designed in Israel at Intel; both Microsoft and Cisco built their only R&D facilities outside the U.S. in Israel; and, with more than 3,000 high-tech companies and start-ups, Israel has the highest concentration of high-tech companies in the world apart from the Silicon Valley.

* Get this: Israel leads the world in the number of scientists and technicians in the workforce, with 145 per 10,000, as opposed to 85 in the U.S., over 70 in Japan, and less than 60 in Germany. With over 25 percent of its workforce employed in technical professions, Israel places first in this category as well!
It goes on and on.

* The Weizmann Institute of Science has been voted “the best university in the world for life scientists to conduct research.” Israeli researchers have:

Discovered the molecular trigger that causes psoriasis.
Developed the Ex-Press shunt to provide relief for glaucoma sufferers.
Unveiled a blood test that diagnoses heart attacks … by telephone!
Found a combination of electrical stimulation and chemotherapy that makes cancerous metastases disappear – and developed the first fully computerized, no-radiation, diagnostic instrumentation for breast cancer!
Designed the first flight system to protect passenger and freighter aircraft against missile attack.

Developed the first ingestible video camera – so small it fits inside a pill – used to
view the small intestine from the inside, enabling doctors to diagnose cancer
and digestive disorders!

Perfected a new device that directly helps the heart pump blood, an innovation with the potential to save lives among those
with congestive heart failure, synchronizing the heart’s mechanical operations
through a sophisticated system of sensors.

These are only a few of Israel’s
recent contributions to the welfare of the world. There are just too many to
list here. Water shortage, global warming, space travel, anti-virus,
anti-smallpox, blood pressure, solar power, paralysis, diabetes, data storage –
these and hundreds more – are being addressed by Israel’s scientists. They’re
pioneering in DNA research, using tiny strands to create human transistors that
can literally build themselves – and playing an important role in identifying a
defective gene that causes a rare and usually fatal disease in Arab infants!

WHO NEEDS ISRAEL? WHO DOESN’T ?

Israel produces more scientific papers per capita than any other nation by a large margin; it has the largest number of startup companies globally, second only to the U.S.; it is No. 2 in the world for venture capital funds, financing all these advances; its $100 billion economy is larger than all of its immediate neighbors combined; and Israel is the only liberal democracy in the Middle East.

And while it maintains, by far, the highest average living standards and per-capita income, exceeding even those of the UK, Israel is the largest immigrant-absorbing nation on earth, relative to its population. It is truly an unparalleled marvel of our time.
So what’s the point of all this?

Simply that the very idea of eradicating or even displacing Israel from its historic home is suicidal to the rest of the world, not just her Arabic neighbors. Though there are ominous biblical consequences pronounced on those who “curse Israel,” there are also wonderful blessings promised those who “bless” her – and we’re seeing those real, practical, humanitarian blessings proliferate around the world, blessing all humanity.

Stop just for a second and imagine a world today that never knew Israel. And then go further: Given their living standards, ideologies and attitudes toward all who dare to disagree with them, imagine what our world would be like if Israel’s enemies held sway. Would you rather live in an Iran, Iraq, Syria or Afghanistan? Or an Israel?

Who needs Israel? Let’s be honest. We all do.

Hamas, Islamic Jihad & Hezbollah desperately in “need” of CREATING yet another ‘massacre’.

August 16, 2007

Hamas, Islamic Jihad & Hezbollah desperately in “need” of CREATING yet another ‘massacre’.

It seems that the Anti-Israel Islamists see themselves again in the grey routine which they hate, the world sees who they are, that the “struggle” they keep talking about is nothing but senseless violence & attempt of pure genocide.

Boy do they long for the days that the BBC wrote about “killing civilians in Lebanon”, though they all know too well what percentage of real “civilians” were there, they also know their success in getting Arab people in Lebanon killed, after all it was Islamists’ great “heroic” tactics of using the people of Lebanon as convenient shields to shoot out from babies’ rooms their “freedom fighting” arsenal, they are also the first to know about staged “massacres” playing to Reuters cameras, some of which have been already exposed, not to mention the building in Qana that fell only a significant time AFTER Israel returned fire, it’s obvious who is capable in killing own kids in order to make Israel look bad, the same type of “people” that killed Muhammad Al Dura that until exposed served a “good” icon in the Anti-Israel Intifada – Genocide campaign.

No matter the real facts, still they have proven again & again how their scores are high, the MSM falls for their criminal bloody theater – time & time again, and turn the finger on the victim – Israel.

Any wonder now we hear on the news that Hezbullah is eager to cause more Arabs to die?
As anything that will lead to a dead Arab kid is as good a Fatwa as any other “holy” Jihadi act against the infidel.

Hey, BBC, Prepare your articles already, write them — so predictable ahead of time, Why waste time? start bashing the Zionists already before anything happens, as you can’t wait.

“Palestinian” Fake Images Industry

“Palestinian” FAKE Photo & Video IndustryDON’T EVER BELIEVE THEIR IMAGES!

If a picture is worth a thousand words, what is the power of a FAKE picture from “Palestinian” aggressors playing the “victim” cloth?
How can any words undue the influence their criminal industry has already done???

Some samples:

The infamous FAKE Video of Muhammad Al Dura… that was actually murdered by… Arab “Palestinian” Muslims… (well, it wouldn’t be the first boy murdered by them and blamed on Israel… another (at least known one) is 2 boys in a cave in the Rafah region).
But the power of the pictures is stronger than the truth.
Who will see Israel’s true humane image after this immense damage?

GAZA 2006 When “Palestinains” killed their own children and FAKED a video trying to blame Israel

Palestinian Media Watch Bulletin – June 13,
2006

View this bulletin online here

PMW Archives:PA TV falsified Mohammed Al Dura clip as it falsified Gaza beach
video

PMW reported yesterday that Palestinian Authority
(PA) TV has been broadcasting a falsified video clip of the
events on the Gaza beach on Friday in an attempt to blame Israel
for the deaths. [Yesterday’s bulletin is reprinted below.]

In the new falsification, an unrelated video clip
of an Israeli missile boat was edited into news footage to make
it appear as if the Israeli boat intentionally fired on civilians.
This is the same technique that PA TV used after Muhammad Al-Dura
was killed in a cross fire in the Gaza Strip in 2000. Subsequent
analysis of that incident has shown that Palestinian fire likely
killed the boy. But the PA TV propaganda clip inserted footage
of an Israeli soldier from a completely different incident to
make it look as if a soldier deliberately aimed at and shot
Al-Dura. That doctored video clip was broadcast hundreds of
times on PA TV.

PA TV falsifies video of Gaza deaths

Palestinian Authority TV has been
repeatedly broadcasting a falsified video clip of the events
surrounding the deaths of seven family members on the Gaza beach on
Friday. In an attempt to blame Israel’s navy for the deaths, PA TV
took unrelated video of an Israeli missile boat firing at Gaza
earlier in the day and edited them into the scenes, creating the
impression Israeli responsibility.

 

The following is the time
frame of the PA TV editing and falsification:

  • 00:00-0:32
    seconds:
    PATV clip introduces the scene by showing an
    Israeli missile boat firing on the Gaza coast. Audio of ambulance
    siren is added to visual to create false impression that boat was
    shooting at same time as ambulances were present.

  • 0:32-1:05
    seconds:
    Scene switches directly to the victims, creating
    a false connection between the events.

  • 1:05-1:09
    seconds:
    PA TV returns to the naval vessel showing sailor
    with binoculars looking at shore, again creating the false
    impression he is observing the evacuation.

  • 1:09-2:00
    seconds:
    The evacuation scene continues ending with the
    word “Why” on the screen only in English, indicating a foreign
    target audience, possibly media.

The video of the Israeli navy was
unrelated to the deaths, having been filmed earlier in the day and
had already released to the media and to the internet by the Israeli
army at 4:00 PM, an hour prior to the deaths.

of the
evacuation

Comment: It should be noted that not
only is the video falsified, but the beach scene clearly backs the
Israeli contention that the deaths were not caused by an Israeli
shell. Any Israeli shell would have left a giant crater and spread
sand over the entire area, as well as on the victims. There is no
crater and the beach scene is not disturbed in a way that indicates
an Israeli shell could have landed nearby.

If you haven’t had enough of PALLYWOOD lately, here’s another episode out of the Jenin branch (June 2006)

All the World’s a Stage

Dahlah

JENIN, -: A Palestinian woman looks at a militant from the Islamic Jihad as he holds his weapon after an Israeli military incursion in the northern West Bank city of Jenin 01 June 2006. Two soldiers were injured in Jenin, one lightly and the other lightly to moderately, from an explosive charge that was detonated against an IDF jeep according to Israeli radio reports.

After explaining why he believes the gunman was hamming it up for the camera, Zoran Bozicevic, a National Post associate photo editor with combat photography experience discusses an eye-opening problem for photo editors and readers:

With the rise of digital photography, barriers to entry fell in the profession: Anyone could call himself a photojournalist, pick up a camera, and e-mail photos to editors around the world. The cost-cutting media increasingly relies on these cheap, sometimes unscrupulous, local stringers. In some cases, they flout professional objectivity, and take sides in the conflict they cover. In other cases, they stage pictures to keep employers happy. Or worse, they manipulate digital pictures after the fact, turning a photo into a work of fiction.

HOLY BLOOD

This blood is holy!

This blood is of piety holy feet coming back from high prayer.

This blood is of elderly Grandpas, Grandmas sweet & so hearty.

This blood is of non political not even serving in the army (!) (ultra religious Jews do NOT serve in army, this exposes Arab lies as if they have a real agenda) pure souls.

This blood is of bride before her wedding.

This blood is of infants crying, Why?

This blood is at the hands of the Arab Muslim “palestinian” TEACHER (!) (that committed the massacre, Did he envy these pure souls that have a better education than what he gives his?) that did this & his wife that ‘honors’ him & is PROUD of his evil!

This blood is in the holy land not (SO CALLED) “occupied” not (SO CALLED) “settlements” but in Jerusalem proper.

This blood is not a “cycle of violence” but Arab on Jews (for being Jews & not Arab Muslim) Massacre CRIME.

This is no “war” no ‘fight” but Arab Muslim radicals with backing of majority “moderate” ‘palestinians’ to target the innocent non combatants.

This blood is of young girls that volunteered for down syndrome kids.

This blood is of young boys in between studying God’s word & helping others.

This bood is of American lovely MOM & infant together blown off to pieces.

This blood is of flesh & blood of human hearts of holy pure innocent gems.

And on this blood They ARE DANCING!

Remembering the 1929 ‘Hebron massacre’ & ethnic cleansing by racist Arabs upon innocent Jews [long before they came up with phony excuses to justify their crimes against humanity].

The Hebron Massacre of 1929 Historical account of the ethnic fighting that led to the expulsion of the Jewish people from their second-holiest city.

http://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/jsource/Hi story/hebron29.html

People often ask me why I am preoccupied with the Arab-Israeli conflict, yet the answer Post-9/11 seems clear: the Jews in Israel have been fighting Muslim extremists since The Hebron Massacre of 1929…

The 800 Jews in modern Hebron lived in peace amidst tens of thousands of Arabs, yet the 1929 murder of 67 Jews precipitated the ethnic cleansing…

THE GRAND MUFTI OF JERUSALEM,ISLAMONAZIFASCISM AND ECCLESIASTES 1:9In 1929 the grand mufti of Jerusalem… organized the massacre of Palestinian Jews in Hebron …

http://www.shalomjerusalem.com/m ohammedism/mohammedism6.html

Haj Mohammad Amin al-Husseini was a brilliant agitator and former Customs officer in the small Palestinian Arab town of Qalqilia who went on to become grand mufti of Jerusalem, the official “priest” and pre- eminent political leader of the Arabs. From his earliest years, Husseini was a ferocious opponent of Jewish immigration to Palestine.

During the Muslim festival of Nebi Musa on April 4, 1920, Haj Mohammad Amin’s followers went on a murderous rampage and, “inflamed by anti-Jewish diatribes, began attacking Jewish passers-by and looting Jewish stores.” He was subsequently convicted by a British military tribunal of inciting the violence, in which five Jews and four Arabs were killed and 211 Jews and 21 Arabs wounded.

After skipping bail, Haj Mohammad Amin took refuge in western Palestine and was sentenced in absentia to ten years in prison. The leader of the hastily organized Jewish self-defense force, Vladimir Jabotinsky, received a 15-year jail sentence for halting the killing spree.

But Haj Mohammad Amin was ferociously opposed to any form of cooperation between Jews and Arabs, which the fledging Zionist movement was trying actively to promote. When young Arab and Jewish intellectuals established “an evening school for the teaching of Hebrew to the Arabs, Arabic to the Jews, and English to both,” al -Husseini intervened to kill the project within a year.

His opposition to the Jews was unrelenting. “Remember, Abbady,” he told a local official who came from an old Jewish family in Jerusalem, “this was and will remain an Arab land. We do not mind you Jewish natives of the country, but those alien invaders, the Zionists, will be massacred to the last man. We want no progress, no prosperity [deriving from Jewish immigration]. Nothing but the sword will decide the future of this country.”

That may be the single most telling statement any Arab leader has made to explain the deep, unacceptable challenge Arabs feel when faced by the success of the Jews.

Haj Mohammad Amin al-Husseini emerged from hiding not long after his trial. In recognition of his status among the Palestinian Arabs, the British mandatory authorities disregarded his record of incitement and appointed him grand mufti in 1922.

But instead of calming the population, as the British seemed to wish, he led a second massacre of Jews on Aug. 23, 1929, in Hebron, where Jewish immigrants had established a thriving community on the site of Judaism’s second most holy city. Given al-Husseini’s new official status, the commission of inquiry appointed by the British Colonial Office treated him “with exceptional consideration,” allowing him to testify behind closed doors at his own home.

Remembering The Hebron Massacre of 1929.

Since… August 24th, marks 77 years since the Brutal Massacre and rape of the Jewish Community of Hebron, I thought it would be important to provide the following recently found letter from a survivor who recounts the horrors of the pogrom. The letter’s author requests that his surviving children read the account every year to recall the survival and the massacre:

The Hebron massacre 1929 by Arabs – (another) important milestone, Arab propaganda machine would want you to ignore.

Just like most important milestones in the middle east conflict, the Hebron massacre by Arabs on Jews (mostly non Zionists) is crucial to apprehend the deep rooted hatred by Arabs to non Arabs especially to the Jews (before Israel’s re-establishment).

One of the key reasons why Arab propaganda machine ignores or would like very much the world to ignore it, is again, as it contradicts with their line of lie of ‘blaming it all on Israel’s inception.’, or on ‘the Zionists’ for that matter.

http://www.zionis m-israel.com/Hebron_Massacre1929.htm

Smooth Stone: The 1929 HEBRON MASSACRE In 1929, 67 Jews of the ancient holy city of Hebron were brutally murdered by a bloodthirsty Arab mob. From reading the news services, it would seem that the Jewish residents of Hebron are responsible for all the violence in the Mideast, the spread of AIDS, the rising unemployment, the hole in the ozone, and the Windows Me operating system. After the horrific suicide bomb attack at Sbarro’s restaurant in Jerusalem, the media had to scramble to find an equivalent outrage by Israelis in their compulsion for “balance.” Since no equivalent atrocity against Palestinians could be found, an AP photographer by the name of Nasser Shyoukhi took it upon himself to create one.

Hebron is the second holiest city to the Jews. The community thrived for hundreds of years in peace with the Arabs until a massacre in 1929 made Hebron ‘Judenrein’. Not until 1967 were the Jews allowed back.

24 August 1929 – 24 August 2004

(75 years later – and what is different?)

August 24, 2004 marks the 75th anniversary of the 1929 Hebron Massacre, in which 67 Jews were brutally murdered by their Arab neighbors. Arab mobs were incited by various false rumours, e.g. that Jews were murdering Arabs and that Jews were plotting to harm the Al Aqsa Mosque and other sites holy to Muslims. Attacks against Jews began in Jerusalem and spread throughout Palestine.
