DOGS OF WAR

Yes, There Is an Anti-Israel Media Cabal and They All Meet on Facebook

It now turns out that if a foreign corespondent is a self-centered, name dropping blowhard, he is also likely to be an Israel hater.

And Associated Press photojournalist Jerome Delay wrote, “The IDF thinks the earth is flat, btw.”

This is a mind blowing quip from a man who should know better. Back in April of 2002, Delay was the first photographer to enter the Jenin refugee camp, along with Greg Myre, who relates the story in his book, This Burning Land: Lessons from the Front Lines of the Transformed Israeli-Palestinian Conflict.

A major part of the Jenin chapter in the book is about Myre and Delay’s entry into a camp that, according to the Palestinian, was supposed to be a slaughter house of at least 500 dead civilians, executed by the IDF. But when they enter they see nothing of the kind, and Myre focuses on IDF Spokesman Col. Olivier Rafowicz, and on his professional, calm cooperation, versus the crazy-eyed attempts of the Palestinians to perpetuate the myth. Myre describes how Delay was hectically roaming through the camp, in search of those illusory bodies – and to his frustration found nothing to write home about (shoot home about?).

So, who is the true Flat Earth believer, the IDF or Jerome Delay?

Goodman also quotes Andrew Ford Lyons, an activist with the International Solidarity Movement, who called the al-Durrah report “a feeble attempt at historical revision, at best.”

Andrew Ford Lyons is featured in the Rogue Gallery of a website called Stop the ISM:

It’s one thing for someone to state a different opinion, but in Andrew Ford Lyons’ case, he just lies if information about the ISM on his websites comes out that is not true.

Arabs venture onto Jewish community property in the West Bank and steal produce? Then Andrew writes that poor Palestinian Arabs were trying to harvest their olives when the big bad Jews came in and drove them off THEIR property.

Stop the ISM operative Paul Cinato meets with ISMers who cavort with Al Aksa Terrorists who wave machine guns around and takes their picture as evidence, so Lyons claims he’s a liar who ran around the West Bank seeking to set up the ISM.

Someone asks why Arab children are allowed to run around loose in active combat zones in Rafah where they can be injured, Lyons makes up the phony excuse that there are “feral” children in Rafah like there are “feral” cats.

He’s another phony revolutionary wannabe who uses his internet skills to aid terrorist human shields for killers such as those found in Hamas, PFLP, etc.

Those qualities sound like the prerequisites for belonging to the Vulture Club.

And now, for your entertainment, the actual exchanges on Facebook, as screenshot by Alana Goodman:

  1. Wars are raging all over the world today just as the Bible stated that they would in the end times. Africani and Korean tensions run high. Iran continues unwavering on it’s march in the development of nuclear weapons and Assad the dictator of Syria is still in power. Current intelligence seems uncertain of when Iran will get the bomb and Israel cannot afford to gamble with this. Assad of Syria looks like he may be willing to use weapons of mass destruction against his own people and against near by nations as well. If this situation does not drastically change soon for the better, I believe the war in Isaiah Chapter 17 will likely take place. Damascus Syria would be destroyed. The worlds economy would likely collapse as a result and could usher in a one world government movement. I wrote a small 6 page book that outlines what I believe the Bible states will take place soon as well as the potential trends I see at this time. I don’t accept donations and it’s free. It’s a short read. I encourage you to have a look: http://www.booksie.com/religion_and_spirituality/book/richard_b_barnes/after-the-rapture-whats-next.

  5. the israel haters are merely jew haters by profession, not journalists nor reporters, unless one considers goebels one of those. these simpletons enjoy the action and the booze. they are no different than their fake stories and their fake photos and their vacant brains.

  13. Heathcliff O'Malley says:

    Many of the reporters on the page in question are experienced, intelligent individuals with many years in the field . I know not a single " Jew hater" among them, but maybe a few who think the " report" into the death of Monammed al Dura to be somewhat suspect and politicised. A cameraman friend of mine was killed in cold blood by a soldier of the IDF and I am still not a Jew
    hater , just tired of the brutality and lies on both sides. If Israel is truly democratic why is it that whenever a journalist objectively tells a painful truth they receive so much hate mail from a very organised and real Jewish lobby . Democracy , grow up and stop behaving like America's petulant child

  14. Believe me – It’s not just the Jews, but Christians are having the same experiences. The LEFT love to ‘hate’ and, at the same time, accuses everyone else of ‘hating’ as they do. They accuse the Jews & Christians of ‘terrorism’ and call Islam the ‘Peaceful Religion’. I don’t know if this mental deterioration is caused by Prozac, Comet Dust, or an Extra dose of T.V. Radiation pumped out by CNN & MSNBC. I DON’T, however, believe that it’s Contagious.

  15. Arie's Pragmatic Politics says:

    You leave out how many of the Jew haters, like HRW are financed and owned by obama financiers.

    HRW is owned by George Soros, who described his time helping hitler murder Jews the 'happiest time' of his life.
    NY Times, whose publishers are the Episcopal Ochs and Sulzberger families (check it out out – NO – they are not Jewish) have been in Anti-Jew rants since the days of hitler. They are today owned by Carlos Slim, richest man in the world, has Hezbollah ties, heavy financier to obama, and recipient from obama of the no-compete contract to build obamaphones in Mexico.

    So where is the shock.

  16. Arie's Pragmatic Politics says:

    Nicolas Lupo I noticed in today's news that the beloved of Beirut are now shooting rockets at each other AGAIN!!

    I really need to stock up on the wine and chocolate as yet another band of jihadists move to exterminate each other. IDF doesn't have to do anything but sit back and enjoy some falafel as we allow you to end the problem for us.

    POP go the weasels

  17. Arie's Pragmatic Politics says:

    That's not Armageddon. That's CNN and FB censoring posts that do not agree with the chosen line of the cult of the holy democrats

  18. Arie's Pragmatic Politics says:

    No nerves dick. But thanks for asking. I did notice on your FB page tho your support of the 2 jihadists that butchered the Brit soldier and your condemnation of the female police officer who shot them for "overreacting."
