Commentary of the Day

soccer dad, on Rick Richman:

I had hoped to blog about this today, but then I saw about the terror attack.

Kershner, like most the MSM, only concentrates on Israel. It’s in part because the Palestinian side is so alien to their sensibilities they simply dismiss it. Today Khaled Abu Toameh reported on a recent declaration of the PA

The Palestinian Authority has issued yet another warning to Palestinians against selling their homes or properties to Jews, saying those who violate the order would be accused of “high treason” — a charge that carries the death penalty.

Is there anyone on Israel’s side who could hold a corresponding view and serve in government or even get elected to office? And yet this is a pronouncement of the moderates in the PA!

Then as Noah Pollak pointed out yesterday, for all the talk of how extreme Lieberman is, there’s little acknowledgment of the forces to which he is reacting – like Arab Knesset members openly rooting for Israel’s enemies.

(When the media used to cover Azmi Bishara, it would be with the utmost sympathy, disregarding any of his inciting comments. See here for example.)

So yes, the media, when it comes to Israel, usually operates with blinders.
