Global Hypocrisy

Unlike with the kidnapping of the 3 Jewish boys, today, the global media had front page headlines up within a few hours.
Global News Coverage

While the kidnapping of Gilad Shaar, Eyal Yifrach and Naftali Fraenkel, barely made the world’s news feeds outside of Israel, and in some cases, global news outlets took days until it was even mentioned, the murder of the Jerusalem Arab boy made headlines within hours on ABC News, BBC News, RT, USA Today, The Guardian, CNN, and other sites.

And to our eyes, apparently only because the news sites suspect the murder was committed by Jews.

Meanwhile, the country is waiting for the police investigation to report back if this was actually a retaliatory attack, or if alternatively, this was an internal family matter, perhaps related to family honor, as others suspect.

Either way, leading Israeli politicians immediately offered their unequivocal condemnations of the murder, whether it was committed by Jews, the boy’s family, or part of a clan war.

    should come as no surprise… the media doesn’t view lives as equal. One thing I find interesting. I read somewhere that they found kippot and a chassidic music disc at the fire… I can’t imagine anyone being stupid enough to leave such evidence let alone potential dna evidence. Very fishy…

    All lives are to be respected. All are GOD’S creation , but not all are HIS sons. Let’s remember that this world is being run by the prince of the air, only and I repeat only because GOD allows it.

  7. Hideous … this is a hideous world we live in

  8. What? The global media published a lot about the 3 jewish boys?!?

  9. Has any thought about the idea that this boy was killed to incite the Arab population to riot. After all , killing children seem to be a n Arab occupation .

  11. Nicky Hewie says:

    Hey we noticed because the Press DID report on the missing boys! There may be global hypocrisy in your eyes but there is no hypocrisy about this incident! Your biased reporting will backfire on you because I’m getting to the end of my patience with you. And I want to be informed! You’re not helping!

  12. Uzi Kattan says:

    Hypocrisy and Jew hatred. Israel should kick out these journalists who have an anti Jewish agenda.

  13. israel will always be hated by loons who work in media, its the remit

  14. Lisa Kamins says:

    yep, global hypocrisy. this gets even better, our boys were murdered for religious reasons, this kid was an honor killing by his own people cause he was gay. of course his family will deny it. not surprising, they live for murder, mayhem and lies.

  16. The crazy suicide-bombing Arabs put the so called evidence there after they martyred the boy. It is a false flag and a hunk of garbage.

  17. Was this only an Arab boy, perhaps a Christian? Or was this a Muslim boy perhaps a move by jihad to make it look like an Israelite did it. Yes the world is mostly on the side of the jihad. It too wants Jews and Christians Gone.

    the boy was apparently gay. all speculation at this point.

  21. I came to FB today just looking for media response after seeing morning news on TV. It is outrageous. CNN and CBS portray the Palestinians as victims. Trash.

  25. This is standard for the American media, at least. Quick to condemn anything done by the Israeli government, typically ignoring or understating the violence to which the government is reacting. They act like throwing rocks at soldiers is something kids are supposed to do. Like the rocks are harmless little pebbles.

  26. David Cohen says:

    When they find out it is a Muslim “honor” killing they will stop talking about it.

  28. But not on their front pages five minutes after the news broke. That’s the point. The story got buried or put off. Not so in this case.

  29. Islam tells its captives be Muslims or die and go to hell. Think about that.
    Their acts to bring about “conversion” to Muslim are brutal. Think about that.
    The World supports Islam and the world is intent on physical pleasure, mooching, lying, discrimination, hate. Think about that.
    Why does Islam and the World want Jews and Christians gone?
    There is something about the Jews and the Christians that reminds them that the world and Islam are truthfully EVIL, that is the reason in the nut shell.
    Only the Christians and Jews have the Key to beat both Islam and the World. Tine to think about what the key is.

  30. WOW ! the state run media ! care more for the Godless than they do for Jews ?

  31. The missing boys were missing for many days before the global media felt it was newsworthy.

  33. Sadie Kojack says:

    Disgusting! No wonder these news outlets are considered to be twisted and bias!

  34. Sadly, there was hardly a blip until AFTER they had been found. This latest tragedy has been on a constant media loop from the start.

  35. August Ayala says:

    News channels are garbage the only see one sided. The truth is not there agenda.

  36. Insane! Insane! Such a terrible slap in the face the the Jewish people. Not to condone murder but, to ignore our tragedies is just beyond words!

  37. I don’t know, I’ve been following it and kept my breath and prayed since I heard it.

  38. Reality. And the ironic thing is that it hasn’t even been confirmed yet that it was a revenge murder. There is another angle that’s being checked. Family murder. Not that I’m justifying any of it but yes the world has double standards when it comes to ISrael

  39. Kim Sloan says:

    The global media is anti Semitic like Obama that’s why the Arab boy’s story ran more quickly. Very sad. Poor child.

  40. Kim Sloan says:

    What a racist comment^

  41. Kim Sloan says:

    The police say his family may have killed him.

  42. No. We use planes against people who fire rockets at us.

  43. After threats of retaliation over the kidnappings of the Israeli youths, the media was poised to spring on anything that seemed connected. This kidnapping/murder fits that bill. Looks very bad.

  44. This is anti American.

  45. It just makes you sick. Why is our suffering ignored or lied about and other peoples’ paraded everywhere? One Jewish/Israeli life is the same value as one Arab/Muslim/Palestinian life. The papers should report everything equally.

  46. Nicky Hewie says:

    I knew about it. Also there are many reasons why things aren’t reported. For instance, the Nigerian girls weren’t reported upon because of the news blackout. Btw, where you were did you know about the retaliation against the Mosque after the murder of Lee Rigby?

  47. Unjust as usual. Same bad in Sweden.

  48. Nicky Hewie says:

    I want to say that I’m not at all dismissing the fact that three innocent children have been kidnapped – that is terrible and my heart goes out to their families. It can’t be easy living with that danger and more needs to be done. Blaming the media for not caring or not seeing it’s importance is unfair because we do care and we do want to do our best to help. Telling us that people don’t care is upsetting and also allows apathy to set in.

  49. Nicky Hewie says:

    Same here and I’m from a different neck of the woods! There are reasons why stories aren’t reported in different papers and/or straight away. People go missing here all the time but most of you won’t know about them. You won’t know about the 12, 000 that have committed suicide because of ATOS for instance and why should you? It doesn’t mean that people don’t care – it means that there more reasons which you don’t know about. This means it’s unfair to tell others off for not caring or that the media doesn’t care when you don’t know what it’s like to walk in others shoes….. I’m not meaning anyone personally just that this artilcle doesn’t do itself any favours.

  50. Nicky Hewie says:

    Btw I just want to say as above that my heart goes out to the families that have been forced to suffer this horrendous experience – and yes, the word experience doesn’t cut it. It must be horrible living with such danger.

  51. Jay Bauman says:

    What else would you expect. Jewish blood is cheap

  52. Stu Katz says:

    I mourn the innocent murders in Israel both Arab and Israeli. All of the mothers are equally heartbroken. What I don’t see is an Israeli mother proudly proclaiming that she is proud of her son being a killer.

  53. Gerda Vos says:

    In the Netherland nothing , nothing about the kidnapping but now the boy’s are dead they say what a tragedy but furder shhhhh silence in the Netherlands whe have to many arabs so whe are quiet whe don’t want to trap on toes ..you now !

  54. Clo Clo says:

  55. What else is new?

Israel’s Security Cabinet is meeting in a marathon session to decide the next step in Operation Protective Edge.

More than 1,550 individuals have immigrated to Israel from Ukraine in the first five months of 2014 alone, more than double the 693 who arrived in the corresponding period last year.

Israelis may have to blame Qatar for the current round of lethal rocket fire, if a report published in Arab media is true.

So imagine, you’re working in the field harvesting cucumbers (or whatever is in season right now) and suddenly the siren goes off – Hamas is shooting rockets at you.

Another miracle for the Jews in Israel — this time in Ashkelon, where a missile exploded directly on a house but hurt no one.
