Israel's "Palestinian" is France's "Terrorist"



One Man's Palestinian is another man's Arab/Muslim Terrorist... 


The double standards applied by the Media stink to high heaven for anyone with a half-way decent sense for bad smells. I can understand that Al Jazeera (*) does for Islam what Goebbels did for Nazism, but I would like to know  in what currency  the so-called "leading" media in the West are paid for out al-jazeera-ing even Al Jazeera itself? 

The hypocritical mask of  "Anti-Israel" has been falling for some time to reveal a naked Jew-hatred in all its ugliness and the formerly 4th Estate has definitely become the 5th Column to anyone who is not afflicted with terminal stupidity or virulent ill will. 

As the man said, "They don't hate the Jews because of Israel, they hate Israel  because of the Jews". 

In the wake of the Islamic terrorism visited on Paris on November 13, the Israeli Reporter, Zvika Klein, has held up a mirror to the "French wo/man in the street" of what the "Israeli wo/man in the street" experiences every day. 

Here are excerpts of an article and video I found on  The Algemeiner




"An Israeli reporter was met with indignation from French citizens and tourists whom he presented with a biased headline about the recent Paris terror attacks, Israeli website nrg reported on Sunday.



Zvika Klein, the Makor Rishon/nrg journalist — whose viral video about walking the streets of Paris illustrated a rise in antisemitism in France — filmed passersby in Paris’ Place de la Republique (Republic Square) reacting to a screenshot of a slanted headline reporting on the November 13 ISIS attacks that resonated around the world.


The format of the headline – purposely fabricated by nrg as an experiment — emulated that of certain international media outlets’ coverage of recent terror attacks against Israelis, creating the impression that terrorists are victims as well. The phony screen shot was a virtual replica of a BBC headline that appeared following the murder of two Israelis, and serious wounding of a mother and her baby, in a stabbing attack in Jerusalem on October 3.


The BBC headline read: “Palestinian shot dead after attack kills two.”


The headline cooked up by nrg a few days after the Paris attacks was: “7 men shot dead during Paris attack; 129 dead.”



Klein is seen in the edited under two-minute video clip conducting man-in-the-street interviews with a cross section of people walking through the famous Parisian square. Holding out his phone to show passersby a fake website, “The Damascus Daily,” on which the ostensible news story and headline are featured ...[...]...


Klein told The Algemeiner on Sunday afternoon — shortly after the clip was posted to YouTube for the first time, and following a morning of stabbing attacks in Jerusalem — that the purpose of the video “is to convey a message to the world media about Israel reportage. There are many mistakes, as we saw in the BBC headline on which we modeled our own.” ...[...]...



“This kind of thing happens all the time in relation to Palestinian terrorism committed against Israelis,” Klein said. “Where terrorists aren’t considered terrorists, but rather victims of the Israeli army or police.”


Klein said the aim of the video is twofold: “To make journalists more accurate and accountable; and to show that terror suffered elsewhere in the world is the same terror that we suffer from in Israel. It has the same agenda; the same goals; and the same mosques teaching the same hatred.”



This, Klein bemoaned, is “not how the average European sees it. Many simply think that Israel is targeted because of the ‘occupation.’ They don’t realize that we are actually just trying to live our lives in peace; at the moment have no partner on the other side; and are subjected to terrorism on a daily basis.”



Indeed, said Klein, nrg decided to embark on the headline experiment after Israelis “immediately draped themselves in French flags and wept over the horrible tragedy that befell the people of Paris a couple of weeks ago — while the Western world doesn’t seem to be behind Israel in the same way. We don’t feel the reciprocity.”


Klein added that because France was a nation in mourning, he did not consider it appropriate to tell the people he interviewed that they were part of an experiment, and to ask them if they now understand why Israel gets angry when treated that way by the media.


“Everyone was still in a state of trauma,” he explained, adding that the effect of the newly posted video remains to be seen. “But in its first few hours on line, it has been viewed by approximately 50,000 people worldwide.”
















(*) A Qatar-based Al-Jazeera-anchorwoman recently posted a video on Facebook of a stabbing attack in Israel, lauding the Palestinian assailant, Israeli news website nrg reported on Sunday.

“Bless you, my hero,” wrote Khadija Benguenna alongside uploaded security-camera footage of a young Arab stabbing an Israeli Border Policeman in Nahariya on Friday, referred to by Benguenna as “northern Palestine.”

By Saturday night, Benguenna, who is of French-Algerian origin, had deleted her comment but not the video, which garnered close to 70,000 “likes.”
