‘Jerusalem Post’ or ‘Palestine Post’?

Well, years ago they actually were called The Palestine Post…

Gilo Serttlement

Judging by the way The Jerusalem Post is delivering an Arab-nationalist, anti-Israeli news report from a Palestinian news agency, embracing the latter’s political terminology, code language and agenda, you have to wonder:

“Two settlers attacked a taxi driver in east Jerusalem on Tuesday, the driver told Palestinian news agency Ma’an reported.

Naim Yousef Elayan, 62, told Ma’an that the young men flagged him down Gilo settlement and asked him to take them to Pisgat Zeev at around 3 a.m.

‘They told me that they want to pick up their friend and when they found out I was Palestinian, they attacked me with a 20-centimeter knife. They pointed the knife toward my neck but I held it with my hand and started screaming. They fled,’ Ma’an reported the driver as saying.”

No police confirmation, no other attempt to verify the veracity of a story like this, which casts blame on an entire community – and the final insult, de-legitimizing the Jewish neighborhood of Jerusalem by calling it a settlement. Seriously?

    I received notice that I have been banned from the Huffington Post. I checked my postings; they do not include inappropriate language as others do. If any thing I may have commented too often. Your reporter did a story on me when I was president of Rabbis for Romney. I enjoy the discussions and postings on your site and would appreciate an explanation. The only thing I can think of is that I posted against the Holocaust Claims Conference as well as Rabbi Schreier and Muslims touring Auschwitz. If the Muslims complained, there was no foul language and as a child of Holocaust survivors I can speak out against extremist Muslims who are against Israel and America. I do not want those extremists praying for my dead siblings and other relatives at Auschwitz. It was the Mufti of Jerusalem who was in charge of an SS division for the Nazis. Is there anything here that would warrant my being banned. Please have the courtesy to email me.

    openid — This is The Jewish Press, you're always welcome here. We have nothing to do with HufP.

    That's a bit of an empty attack Jonny. Multiple media outlets keep each other in check, just like the CIA, Dept of Defence, State Dept (to use an American example) keep each other in check.

    It's a part of the way democracy works.

    This is the kind of thing I want to read about, so I'm glad it's here. Since David Horowitz left the JPost, I know I'm not the only one to lament its leftward leap…

    Jerusalem Post = Palestine Post; Jewish Press = Islamic Press
