Media Bias Toward Israel During Holidays


I saw these pictures in Yahoo Pictures about Israeli soldiers beating a Palestinian guy dressed in Santa Clause. They even go further by naming the article "Father Christmas being Beaten." Click here for the link to the pictures and the story. It is very sad because Yahoo decided to show these pictures and also cover the story. What is messed up about these pictures is that it invokes previous anti-Semitic feelings about Jews and Christians and this time the Jews are beating Santa Clause. What is even horrible about these pictures are that these “Santa” dressed liked that in purpose and invoked these soldier for a photo opportunity and they hit a jackpot with Yahoo. It is a fake scene created by a group of people to create a setting for certain purpose. That is not News worthy. Yet, Yahoo chose to cover it. However what the media failed to cover is another story where Christians in Hamas Land (Gaza Strip) had to play down Christmas. What is more messed up, Israeli soldiers struggling with five trouble makers who purposely tried to invoke soldiers to act that way for certain purposes, or thousands of religious minority forced by a group to play down Christmas? Another question the media totally ignored the second event. Which one do you think is more important to cover? Well, I would like to calls this Media Biased toward Israel.

for some reason, i must say, that that santa claus does not look Palestinian, but he certainly does look like he maybe intoxicated. It is probably one of those ISM anarchists.

There is some serious bias against Israel in the media. On NPR, for example, some stupid bitch said that being in Bethlehem made her think of when America used to be divided by race. She doesn't understand the history of the region and the problem of Islamic fanaticism and terrorism.

Yeah but apparently to Fadel, I am losing my credibility by raising such issues. I believe the guy is most likely to be one of those international people who are in Israel to save lives. When people are being murdered in other countries such as Iraq or Somalia or other places, the only place they'd rather be is Israel because they are simply secure in Israel and it is like a vacation for them.

I have written on suffering of Palestinians, but I will not blame it sololy on Israelis. At the same time, you say: killing of Palestinian kids on DAILY BASIS. What daily basis? show me news articles that in a week long basis, not even a month long basis, that Palestinian kids were killed seven days a week. Just in a past week, Israel sent 10 of those terrorists to hell without killing a single civilians, therefore this sort of claims that you make that Israelis are killing Palestinians on daily basis is simply wrong and does not have a basis.
