Antisemitism in the Media: The Tip of the Iceberg?


.

Or take Gregg Easterbrook, who in 2003 was fired from ESPN for a blog he had written for the New Republic Online, in which he described Jews in the film industry, including Disney’s CEO, Michael Eisner, as “Jewish executives who worshiped money above all…by promoting for profit the adulation of violence.”

The list could go on and on, but there is another point:

Thomas’s attitude is not only unkind and unfair to Jews, it is also unfair to Palestinians. The media’s Israel-bashing Jews-haters are not only harming Jews, they are harming the Palestinians as well. They have established a culture of tolerance for Arab abuse of the Palestinians; the 1970 massacres of Palestinians in Jordan, the 1980s massacres of Palestinians in Lebanon, and the abuse of Palestinians in Syria and Iraq are just a few examples that received little coverage compared to the media’s overkill fixation on Israel.

How do the media serve the Palestinians when they choose to demonize Israel, the only country that allows the Palestinians not only full freedom of speech and of the press, but also employment at the highest levels, from full membership in Israel’s Parliament [Knesset], to serving as a justice on the Supreme Court, or appointments as Ambassador in the Diplomatic Corps? Do the Turks, for example, do that for their minorities? Do the Egyptians? Does Jordan? Does any Arab country?
