Skip to comments.Israel Hatred at the Huffington Post
Posted on 11/20/2012 7:30:45 PM PST by Nachum
In recent months, the Huffington Post entered the world of video news with its debut of HuffPost Live. One might suspect that it was little more than a video version of the leftist website founded seven years ago by Arianna Huffington. Yet a blog known as HuffWatch has been documenting the content at both websites and has discovered a grim, though unsurprising reality: both Huffington Post and HuffPost Live are repositories of anti-Semitic and anti-Israel vitriol. Leading the charge at HuffPost Live is host/producer Ahmed Shihab-Eldin.
Shihab-Eldins bio asserts he has Palestinian heritage and is a former producer and co-host for Al-Jazeera, a well-known disseminator of anti-Israel propaganda. Al-Jazeera demonstrated its commitment to journalistic integrity most poignantly in July 2008, when it held a birthday celebration for Samir Kuntar, a released Lebanese terrorist who killed a 28-year-old Israeli father in front of his 4-year-old daughter and then crushed the daughters skull with his rifle butt.

I wonder how many liberal Jewish voters are paying attention to the hatred from their “own side”?
I personally believe that if you wanted moral equivalency then Israel should drop 11,000 missiles on gaza.
huffpost is vicious and vile and increasingly so,
which is true for all of the MSM, and while its always been bad, I’ve noticed this trend really on an uptick just in the last few years,
Liberal hatred has been on the rise everywhere, as if it’s even possible. You’d think with their guy in the White House, they’d might be a little more jolly.
Although not as relevant, a Jew would feel downright unwelcome at DU.
Does the SPLC have any interest in the violent bigots at the HP?
One who actually sincerely cares about the principles of Judaism and practices them dilligently would feel unwelcome. Every religions has it’s set of traitors or pretended followers, sad, but true.
As for the Huffington Post, the place is a alleyway for going with whatever rants run on the street. Frankly, does their logic click in sufficiently to actually read the complaints that Hamas has pretty much set up a design for a post-Israeli world that would be reminiscent of an apartheid regime? Much less the fact that 4,000 Iranian homosexuals were executed in brutal manner, plus additional killings by extralegal mob action? Frankly, The Huffington Post would be rediculously pro-Israel if they had a lick of sense above their need to embrace cognitive dissonance.
I never link to the Nazi Post.
They blindly voted for 0bowmao, too.
It is always instructive that the mindless, lemming, echo-chamber liberals refer to FoxNews as "Faux News" while believing that HuffyPoo and MSLSD are legitimate, objective news sources.
