News Blackout New York Times Ignores Momentous Pro-Jewish Court Case Win in France
Publius' Forum ^ | 07/14/08 | Warner Todd Huston

French media loses big court case proving Palestinian propaganda false, New York Times ignores shocking story… Why?

France TV 2 has lost a major court case in France that makes the lie to a major piece of Palestinian propaganda. In 2000 an incident occurred in the Palestinian areas that has since been used as propaganda for the Palestinian cause all across the world and the New York Times has repeatedly been a willing host for this propaganda. Now, however, it has been proven that France 2 perpetrated a lie that has given succor to terrorism. And where is the New York Times with this momentous news that proves Israeli innocence? Nowhere to be seen.

In 2000 the Palestinians began what they called the second intifada against Israel, a kick in the teeth to the Israelis seeking only peace. During the early stages of this attack France 2 TV, a state run television station, aired what it claimed was a video of a child and his father being shot and killed by Israeli security forces.

Palestinian sources claimed that what France 2 TV showed the French public and the world was the death of 12-year-old Muhammad al-Dura and his father, killed by Israeli security forces. The shock of this small boy being mercilessly shot down by Jews drew condemnation like a lightening rod. Supporters of Palestine the world over were outraged, posters appeared, protests were whipped up, postage stamps with the image of this child's supposed last minutes on Earth were even created in Egypt and Tunisia. The "death" of Muhammad al-Dura rallied support to Palestinians against the Jews. And for the last 8 years the New York Times has been right there with the "news" pushing the story for all its worth.

How does the NY Times, located in the largest enclave of American Jews, get to be so pro-Muslim?

at some point in the ascendency of the baby boomer generation

the pursuit of truth became less important to the media than ideological conformity.

Ya know, I spent 25+ years working for newspapers and magazines and I have to say, on balance, you’re right. And when you’re right, hey, you’re right.

The “profession” is in the dumper.

The Times used to be a strong supporter of Israel, so much so that they were criticized by anti-Semetic bigots for having too many Jews on the editorial staff and being owned by Jews who used its prestige for Zionist purposes.

But that was long ago.

Actually, she is. Ever heard of Walter Duranty? He was the discredited NY Times reporter who covered up the Ukranian famine — a Stalin creation that killed about 6 million, maybe more.

From the article:
”I have never had a gun in my life. But my children — who are doing pee-pee in their beds — want me to buy one, because obviously Muhammad al-Dura’s father couldn’t protect him well enough with his bare hands.”

“...at some point in the ascendency of the baby boomer generation...”

Perhaps a corresponding timeline, but not the “Boomers” per se IMO.

We all know that action begits reaction. Albeit true there was Leftist thought and promotion of Communism prior to the 1917 Russian Bolshevic Revolution, it is further my opinion from extensive reading on the matter that the action in the newly formed U.S.S.R. set off reaction in the U.S. that may or may not be culminating in Leftist success today, or the very near future.

Granted the reaction was Worldwide, but I am addressing the beginnings of the aggression of the Communist movement here in the U.S. as that is OUR PROBLEM. The rest of the World is secondary to cleaning out our own clogged arteries.

Any commentary might refrain from asking me how to clear those arteries. It takes a radical move IMO to accomplish such that I’m unwilling to discuss in this forum.

The Times has always bent over backwards to avoid being associated with "Jewish causes."

The Times has always been reliably leftist. They will sing whatever song the left wants and they don't really give a damn about religion or ethnicity.

Back in the 50s when Israel was being portrayed by the left as a socialist haven with their communal farms, etc., the Times was with them. But when the Soviet KGB switched sides and created Yassar Arafat and the PLO, the Times promptly switched sides too.

The link at the bottom of the post works, there must be a typo in the link at the top of the post.

We allowed the left to buy out and take control of the media. Now we live in a Free Society (for the time being) but with a Media that implements “Censorship” daily.

Short version: There was video showing the whole thing being staged, Ch. 2 had it, knowingly pushed 100% pure palescumian propaganda, proven in court.

ACtually they are still attacked by antisemites adn antizionists or rather these groups take it on faith that the NYTimes and MSM is pro-Israel and then call the far left press and MSM unbiased.

I heard him there as well.

Hopefully this is an indication that some cracks are appearing in the edifice of Eurabia.
