Complicit Media Enables Bigoted Israel

Posted by Picasa Women mourning the murders of brothers Ayman and Raed Yassin. I am sick of hearing news media refer to every Palestinian male as "holed up," whether it be in a house or mosque. Headlines should be screaming about the two Red Crescent medics murdered by Israel, the eighty year old woman murdered by Israel, the twelve year old girl, the four year old boy, the eighty year old woman . . . Annie's Letters exposes the New York Times' shoddy reporting:

RE: Israel Presses Attacks in Gaza, Killing a Rocket Makerhttp://www.nytimes.com/2006/11/05/world/middleeast/05mideast.html?ref=middleeast

Dear Editor,

Reading your deceptive report covering up and excusing racist Israel's anti-Palestinian maneuvers and aggressive attacks on relatively unarmed vulnerable stateless civilians, I can not help but wonder if the propagandists and newspapers that helped Hitler build his horrible Holocaust had been held accountable things would be very different today- with a just and lasting peace shaping reasonable choices and actions in the Holy Land.

Instead what we have are stories so warped by Zionist spin that up becomes down and the victims of political Zionism's blatantly racist war on the native non-Jewish population of the Holy Land are depicted as villains.

Your headline should have been "On Saturday, a 12-year-old girl was shot in the head and killed by an Israeli sniper in Gaza." Or "Unarmed Palestinian women valiantly rise up to stop Israel's war machine . . . ."

As a recent Jordan Times editorial wisely concludes " We salute the bravery of the women of Gaza, not only for this latest action but for all their work out of the spotlight without which the Palestinian society would have collapsed."

Shame on you NYTimes for being so complacent and complicit in misinforming America as to the true nature of Israel's many crimes against humanity.
