Why is the Media Neglecting Israelís Side of the Flotilla Attack?

The “Gaza Freedom Flotilla” set sail last week for the Hamas-controlled Gaza region, claiming to be carrying humanitarian aid. Israeli Navy ships requested late Sunday night that the activists change course from Gaza to Ashdod, where they would be able to unload their aid material, which would then be transferred over land to Gaza after undergoing security inspections.

Huh.. Did you know that the same group that sponsors these “flotillas” is the same group that sponsored the “Millenium Bomber”? You didn’t? ABCCBSNBCCNNNYTIMES never mentioned it? Huh...

Well, that convinces me! Obviously our Zionist news media is attacking the "palestinians" and the Turks and it only sounds like they're attacking the Israelis!

Because it’s politically incorrect to give Israel’s side more than a moment’s comment. It’s like in the old South, where someone taking a Black’s side was called a n***ger-lover. Nowadays, a reporter doesn’t want to be labeled a Jew-lover.

Doesn’t fit the template.

Yeah, anti-semitic isn’t quite accurate, in fact I think it is a false premise. It has more to do with being unpatriotic and godless - The former precludes the lefties ability to understand patriotism of others (in this case Israel) and the sovereign right of Israel to defend itself from being destroyed. The latter dims their understanding of the simple fact that Judeo-Christian values are all encompassing and worth fighting for whatever the cost, instead of the evil Islamic menace that we are up against.

I have seen a lot of self-loathing among the Jews, especially those from the NE US where journalists are known to congregate. I am not sure where it comes from. I am going to guess it has to do with upbringing.

Have I not read that mideast/ Saudi investors have a big ownership stake in some of the major media outlets? If so, it would make sense that these sources would never give Israel a fair shake on news coverage.

Sent the following email addressed to the Turkish Embassy Washington DC at contact@turkishembassy.org: As an American citizen and as a non-Jew I am disgusted with the Turkish government's attack upon Israel and support for the terrorist government of Hamas. Since the Turkish government is leading the charge against Israel, I object most strenuously to the continued presence of Turkish Embassy staff on American soil. I want you all out of my country immediately. Unfortunately, no one in the White House or at the State Department has the guts to kick you the hell out of Washington and New York. Diplomat or no diplomat, if I was in office you would all have been packed onto a C-130 transport by now, hands tied behind your backs, red-eyeing it straight back to Istanbul. And any U.S. government lawyer who objected to my decision on legal grounds would be accompanying you on the flight. You can file your objection with the United Nations after you get home.

The general MSM description of the Israeli Special Forces work as
an “assault” or “attack” has been jaw-dropping.

Well, not for me, but surely for some supporters of Israel here in the USA.

The muted comments of The White House probably show that The Anointed One
(aka Messiah) is listening to some of the few rational remarks from
Rahm-Bo seeing how about 60% of Americans support Israel (and understand
the WorldWide Islamic Jihad).

Come on, that’s too easy. The Democrat Ministry of Propaganda does what Obama expects them to do; and he’s attempting to cultivate the Arabs.

The MSM is anti-Semite and pro-Islamic Terrorist....that is why they refuse to cover Israel’s side of the story

I’ll leave it to you to explain the dynamics of this. But fact are facts.

Interesting point re the anti-patriotism. I think you’re on to something there.

But isn’t “godless” an oxymoron when discussing a religion?

That Jews are hugely over represented in the media business.

Actually, the burden is on people like you to explain why the "Zionist" media is against Zionism.

How would I know? I’m not a Jew, and I frankly do not understand their apparent support for their enemies.
