Skip to comments.Why publicize what Arabs say in Arabic? (Media coverup of “Palestinian” hatred)
Posted on 07/08/2012 1:11:56 AM PDT by Olog-hai
We have witnessed a generation of mellifluous words of peace that have emanated from the nascent Palestinian Authority in foreign languages. Isnt it time for newspaper readers and TV watchers across the globe to hear what the PA conveys in Arabic to its own people? After all, with the inception of the Oslo process, if a few of us had not not independently taped and translated Yasser Arafats harangues in Arabic, would people know today that there is a consistent dissonance between the message of peace conveyed by the PA in English and the daily warlike message communicated by the PA in the Arabic language? Yet the mainstream media seems to have made it a matter of policy to not do so.
In the context of articles that Haaretz runs on Middle East negotiations, why not mention what PA spokespeople say that day to their media and in their own language? (Haaretz's Chemi) Shalev: As an editor, I would recommend not covering that.
In other words, a respected senior editor of a major Israeli newspaper admitted to a gathering of journalists that as a matter of policy, Haaretz will not report the consistent message that the PA conveys in Arabic.
And its not only Haaretz. You will not find a single Israeli media outlet, across the political and religious spectrum, that will provide coverage of what the PA communicates to the Arabs in the Arabic language.
The foreign press who cover Israel also adhere to this no-look/no-report policy.
At the AJPA conference, our agency asked the Jewish Telegraphic Agency why it does not report what the PA conveys in Arabic. JTA has not responded to this question, which our agency has been posing to JTA for more than a decade, without any answer.

Why??? Why not???
And BTW, this is our Dear Leader's "PEACE PARTNER"--and in his own words--who heads the Palestinian Authority and who Obama defends, appeases, supports with our tax $$$ while threatening, dissing and on the verge of abandoning Israel.
And for all you Freeps who HATE Mitt and MORMONS, when are y'all going to provide us ANYTHING which shows what Romney has said or done, or any PROMINENT Mormon, or ANYTHING in the Mormon Religion which is anywhere near as DANGEROUS and a THREAT as that of the Islamic Appeaser in Chief (HE WHO SUPPORTS THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD AND HAS APPOINTED SEVERAL AS ADVISERS) AND who you would gladly see reelected simply to satisfy your so called "Principles????"
from page 261 of the paperback edition of The Audacity of Hope.
Google “LATMA TV” for some absolutely hilarious news-based comedy out of Israel. This group is conservative, pro-Western, and anti-jihad to the max. Their stated job is to debunk the PC that infests mainstream Israeli media.
Look up “Jihad Bells” on youtube.com. Side-splitting stuff!
If the Israeli people had known of this, they would have put the traitor Rabin in prison long before he got what was coming to him.
I agree. MEMRI ois an excellent source.
I agree. MEMRI ois an excellent source.
This might show that they are devoted liars, hate filled vermin, advocates and conspirators and perpetrators of among the most vile of acts known to humankind.
Only an extraordinarily crafty, intelligent and wealthy group of conspirators could get away with this!
It must be the Jews!
