STUDY: U.S. NEWSPAPERS ARE MORE THAN TWICE AS LIKELY TO CITE ISRAELI SOURCES IN HEADLINES THAN PALESTINIAN ONES

Gaza-Stike

British medical journal The Lancet is under attack for daring to speak out on the massacre of over 1,800 Palestinians last year and the related health crises in Gaza.

Lancet medical journal accused of ‘hate speech’ on Israeli aggression in Gaza

Specifically referencing Israel’s military assault on Gaza last summer, the letter insisted “the massacre in Gaza spares no one.” Its victims include “the disabled and sick in hospitals, children playing on the beach or on the roof top, with a large majority of non-combatants,” the letter said.

CNN:

The Palestinian death toll in Gaza stands at more than 1,800, with nearly 10,000 wounded, Gaza’s Health Ministry said Sunday. More than 300 children have died, the ministry has reported, as the United Nations repeatedly raises concerns about the high number of deaths in Gaza.

225 Jewish Survivors and Descendents of Survivors of Nazi Genocide Condemn the Massacre of Palestinians

225 Jewish survivors and descendents of Jewish survivors of the Nazi genocide have signed on to this letter condemning Israel’s massacre on Gaza and calling for an end to the genocide of the Palestinian people. In the letter, they also speak out against the abuse of their histories to promote the dehumanization of Palestinians advanced by Elie Wiesel among others in his recent ads placed in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post and the Guardian. 

I was sent this video today, and both stories deserve some comment:

 

The fascist NYPD have been talked about extensively.  Here is another example of a criminal thug organization that can beat weaker members of the public with impunity.  The lawless culture of authoritarian abuse in NYC is a human rights issue that affects poor and minority populations, protesters, journalists, any democratic activists.

The second story concerns a very interesting mural on a wall in London.  More interesting still are the attitudes of the random passers-by (not the spokespeople).  Random people see a variety of things in the mural, which is quite impressive.  Too many, however, are completely accommodating to censorship, to the erasure of ideas one finds controversial.  The sheep like acceptance of censorship, and the city’s own crackdown on the mural, sending a letter demanding it be removed, mean that this art work will be removed most likely and this video record will be the only remnant of it.  Examine it for yourself.  Make your own mind up.  That’s what freedom of expression is about.

P.S.

Another excellent video on NYPD police brutality:
