Liberals Quoting Scripture: Beware The Jewish Politically-Correct Bible Thumpers

1 Elul 5762 – August 9, 2002
When I was a lad we used to suffer from the frequent visits of missionaries who often canvassed our neighborhood, presumably because of the large number of Jewish families whose souls could be saved there.

Mike Wallace’s Fateful Encounter

29 Av 5762 – August 7, 2002
As the Monitor reported last month, veteran "60 Minutes" hatchet man Mike Wallace has, after a brief respite, resumed his familiar role as one of the media's most consistent Jewish critics of Israel. During a number of interviews in recent months Wallace seemed to go out of his way to inject an anti-Israel or pro-Palestinian perspective into the conversation, most notably during a May 22 chat with Stephen Hess of the Brookings Institution.

And the Nobel Peace Prize goes to The Israeli Defense Force

25 Av 5762 – August 2, 2002
Rumors were rife about Israeli soldiers hurriedly burying bodies - getting rid of the evidence of their foul deeds, and that Israeli soldiers were using 'Palestinian' children as human shields.

How To Judge Bush’s Speech

23 Av 5762 – August 1, 2002
For the best indication that President Bush's June 24 White House speech indeed amounted to what several Israeli officials described as the most pro-Israel statement ever made by a sitting U.S. president, one need look no further than the reactions it stirred in the American punditocracy.

A Mother’s Pride

15 Av 5762 – July 24, 2002
One of the problems with multi-part columns is that a breaking story or timely development can wreak havoc on any semblance of an orderly schedule. Such is the case with the conclusion of a critical look at Mike Wallace, the first part of which appeared here two weeks ago.

Teach Your Children

8 Av 5762 – July 17, 2002
The Monitor will return next week to the subject of veteran Israel-basher Mike Wallace. This week, though, with yet another horrific suicide bombing in Jerusalem, it seemed more relevant to focus on the fanatical hatred inculcated in Palestinian young people by their elders.

Mike Wallace, Loathsome Again

1 Av 5762 – July 10, 2002
Readers will recall that a few months back the Monitor had words of uncharacteristic praise for Mike Wallace, who had just conducted an interview with Yasir Arafat that was far more skeptical than the fawning media treatment usually accorded the Palestinian leader.

Campus Calumnies

23 Tammuz 5762 – July 3, 2002
This year we take a different tack: As per the suggestions of a number of readers, the Monitor for the next few weeks will be compiling a "Friends List" of pro-Israel media people. The list and its inevitable follow-ups will be published in July.

Why We’ll Win: Drawing Inspiration From Christian Zionists

19 Tammuz 5762 – June 28, 2002
Believe me, if you dare, when I tell you that these Christian Zionists are the most sincere supporters of Israel I've ever met. Bar none.

Change At The New York Times?

Demonstrating the bias of the Mideast reporting of the New York Times is hardly as attention-grabbing these days as when The Jewish Press began doing so several years ago. Just about everyone has now gotten "with the program". Yet, it is important, despite various calls for boycotts and even some grudging acknowledgment by The Times that there is a problem, not to allow the issue to fade.

Unfortunate Kosher Food Decision

As The Jewish Press reported last week, a three judge panel of the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit sitting in Manhattan has thrown out provisions of New York's Agricultural and Markets Law which since 1915 has prohibited the fraudulent selling of food as kosher.

Rabbi Avi Shafran And The Jewish Press

We are saddened by some assertions made by Agudath Israel of America spokesman Rabbi Shafran in last week's Forward newspaper. We have, until now, avoided any editorializing on the continuing and animated exchange of opinion that has appeared for several weeks in our Letters To The Editor section, preferring to let our readers explore the issue of Agudath Israel's non-participation in the recent Washington rally in support of Israel. And we will not now address the controversy. However we cannot leave unremarked some of Rabbi Shafran's comments.

Dems Throw Stones From Glass Houses

16 Tammuz 5762 – June 26, 2002
Democrats and their allies in the media who thought they could use those pre-Sept. 11 intelligence reports and FBI memos to diminish President Bush's standing with the American people were in full retreat this week, as a slew of polls gave Bush continued high marks, both for his overall job performance and his handling of the war on terror.

Media, Dems Team Up Against Bush

9 Tammuz 5762 – June 19, 2002
Hold the presses for an unusual burst of candor from Newsweek assistant managing Editor Evan Thomas. "The incredible alarm everybody has about how Bush should have known - all of that is baloney," Thomas acknowledged last weekend on the panel discussion program "Inside Washington."

Israel Acts – The Media Howl (Part III)

2 Tammuz 5762 – June 12, 2002
The Monitor is still trying to catch up with some of the more striking examples of media bias in the coverage of Israel's recent anti-terrorist operations in the Palestinian areas. Topping this week's list is the insufferable Ted Koppel and his separate interviews with Ariel Sharon and Yasir Arafat, both of which aired on the May 1 edition of ABC's "Nightline."

Never Prouder

28 Sivan 5762 – June 8, 2002
I thought about other soldiers in the Israeli army, an army that insisted on going from booby-trapped house to booby trapped house in the terrorist stronghold of Jenin they jokingly call a "refugee camp."

A Failed Experiment

With huge funding - courtesy of the United States Europe and Israel - it has also had plenty of time and resources to prove itself.

More Truth Twisting From The New York Times

25 Sivan 5762 – June 5, 2002
Once again the Monitor is forced to change course and shelve some already delayed comments on media coverage of Israel's recent anti-terror military operation. We'll get back to Peter Jennings and Ted Koppel next week, but right now there can be no topic for discussion other than The New York Times and the travesty it has become.

The Sage From Plains

18 Sivan 5762 – May 29, 2002
As those of you who've been paying attention know, the Monitor has been trying to make up for a brief absence by catching up with some of the more objectionable American media coverage of recent events in and around Israel. We'll return to that task with next week's column, which should, hopefully, bring us up to date.
