The totally unreliable ‘The Guardian’

February 16, 2012

The Guardian is not just ‘left’ like the BBC. But on the very extreme. Especially when it comes to US and Israel it has been known to be very radical and totally unreliable.



  • ANTI-ZIONIST AND ANTISEMITIC DISCOURSE ON THE GUARDIAN’S COMMENT IS FREE WEBSITE

By Hadar Sela June 7, 2010 […] The result of the Guardian’s method of moderation is two-fold. Not only does it put the onus for the reporting of antisemitic comments and the demand for their deletion via the ‘report abuse’ function upon those members of the general public who consider it to be their voluntary task to monitor CiF (a resource upon which the Guardian openly admits it relies), it also means that racist hate speech for example comparing Israel to apartheid South Africa or the Nazi regime is not infrequently left standing on the CiF site. Moreover, those offensive comments that are deleted often take an unacceptable amount of time to disappear and are hence read by many visitors to the site before they do.[1]



  • UK Jewish groups slam ‘Guardian’ for using Hamas propaganda against Israel

Jerusalem Post – Mar 25, 2009 In an article in Tuesday’s Guardian, entitled ‘Guardian’ investigation uncovers evidence of alleged Israeli war crimes..


“This is the newspaper that reported the massacre at Jenin, which turned out to be false, and said also that Israel was high in an international league table for its murder of journalists and then failed to properly correct this patent falsehood,” said Jonathan Hoffman, co-vice chairman of the Zionist Federation of the UK. “It is the paper that tolerates anti-Semitic content in its blog ‘Comment Is Free,’ and indeed encourages it by its choice of contributors.”[2]



  • IRAN’S NETWORK SPEWS

24-HR. TV NEWS HAS NO SEX, BUT LIES & VIDEO Last Updated: 5:00 AM, July 5, 2007 Posted: 5:00 AM, July 5, 2007 […] Another article blames the United States and Israel for stirring up violence between Fatah and Hamas in Gaza. Washington’s fingerprints are all over the chaos that has hit Palestinians and the last thing they need now is an envoy called Blair. Wait a minute. That piece came out of The Guardian newspaper in Britain. PressTV is in good company. [3]

Cameron and Clegg give a free pass to racism [by Arab/Muslim Palestinian leadership]

January 22, 2012

“Cameron and Clegg give a free pass to racism.” [Melanie Phillips, Daily Mail, January 17, 2010:

… Clegg should be condemned in the strongest possible terms for his support of racism. For he is supporting the ethnic cleansing of Jews from a future state of Palestine.

Why does the expansion of Jewish housing in the suburbs of Jerusalem prevent a state of Palestine from being established? Only because Abbas and his cronies have said over and over again that not one Jew will be allowed to live in their state of Palestine.
That racist agenda is what Clegg and Cameron are supporting. They too assume that, by definition, wherever Jews are living cannot be subsumed into Palestine. Some 20 per cent of Israel’s population are Israeli Arabs.
Why don’t Clegg and Cameron support the idea that there can be Palestinian Jews? Why do they not only agree that a future state of Palestine must be Judenrein but even blame Israel for ‘vandalism’ by failing to go along with that racist idea?

[…]
Why are Cameron and Clegg supporting the Holocaust-denier Abbas and his racist Palestinian Authority which pumps out hideous, Nazi-style demonisation of Jews and the intention to destroy Israel [- as here,http://www.memritv.org/clip_transcript/en/3258.htm here,http://palwatch.org/main.aspx?fi=452&fld_id=452&doc_id=6099 and here,http://palwatch.org/main.aspx?fi=157&doc_id=5954 along with countless other examples -] and which extols those who have slaughtered Israelis as great Palestinian heroes whose murderous Jew-hatred serves as an example for Palestinian children to emulate?
For Cameron and Clegg to welcome this monster to Britain, while themselves demonising the nation he wants to wipe out and against which his administration incites hatred and murder week in, week out, is a truly sickening spectacle.”Cameron and Clegg give a free pass to racism.” By Melanie Phillips, The Daily Mail, 17th January 2012,

Gordon Brown to condemn Iran’s president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad Gordon Brown will pledge “unbreakable” support to Israel while launching his strongest attack yet on Iran. The Prime Minister will send a tough message to the Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Monday, warning of imminent sanctions on oil and gas if he does not abandon his nuclear ambitions. In a landmark speech to the Israeli parliament, Mr Brown will say that Mr Ahmadinejad’s denial of Israel’s right to exist is “totally abhorrent”. The European Union has already said it stands ready to push for a block on foreign investment in new Iranian oil and gas projects along with sanctions on the financial sector if the Gulf state does not comply with requests to suspend its uranium enrichment programme. British officials hinted that sanctions could extend to all parts of the oil industry in a bid to disrupt production by Iran, which exports some 2.5 million barrels a day. In his speech to the Knesset, the first by a British Prime Minister, Mr Brown will voice determination to prevent an Iranian nuclear programme. He will say that Iran now has a clear choice to make: “Suspend its nuclear programme and accept our offer of negotiations or face growing isolation and the collective response not of one nation but of many nations.” Mr Brown will tell Israel that it has Britain’s unequivocal support: “Britain is your true friend. A friend in difficult times as well as in good times, a friend who will stand beside you whenever your peace, your stability and your existence are under threat; a friend who shares an unbreakable partnership based on shared values of liberty, democracy and justice. “Britain and Israel continue to stand together. So to those who question Israel’s right to exist…
