Harper Catches Anti-Israel Media Bias Red-Handed

“So if you have half a century of conflict – 47 years, 46 years of conflict – there must be something else that is at the core of this conflict….

“Here’s the core of the conflict, and here is the key to its solution: the core of the conflict is not settlements; the core of the conflict are not the territories; the core of the conflict is not the absence of a Palestinian state. The core of the conflict is the persistent refusal to reconcile to an independent nation-state of the Jewish people.”

Harper’s pro-Israel position, because it is based on normal values that almost every other nation has corrupted, gave Prime Minister Netanyahu the extraordinary opportunity to challenge Canadian media covering Harper’s visit to print the whole truth and not half the truth.

“Since you asked about the settlements, then yes, we’ll deal with it in the course of a final settlement of peace, but no, it is not the core of the conflict,” he declared.

“The core of the conflict is the persistent refusal to accept a Jewish nation-state. That was a summation that you can put in a sound bite, but because of the plethora of distortion and shallowness of this discussion, as Prime Minister Harper has said about the general discussions about Israel, then I put before you a great challenge: put everything I just said in your media.

“If you do that, I will put a hat on and take it off for you.”

  1. If, as Netanyahu said, the so-called "settlements" aren't the core of the problem why does it have to be resolved? This is our inheritance, our birthright. We won it back in a defensive war. It was mandated to us in the Treaty of San Remo. What is it the Israeli government doesn't get?

  2. Also what is Netanyahu talking about? He gave away most of Hebron in the Wye Agreement. We need a leader who Satan what he means and means what he says.

  3. Sue Burstein-Kahn says:

    Was the Satan part a typo???SO right in so many ways, if only we believed in Satan.

  4. Hahaha. It was a typo.

  5. I would like to see Canada replace the US as Israel’s chief patron.

  6. Kevin Young says:

    It very well may happen…

  7. Olive Tree says:

    IN order to give even an inch to the Palestinian argument for a separate state you need to be an expert at ignoring history both ancient and modern. I don't even understand why there is a discussion. History votes for Jordan as the Arab/ Palestinian state of record.

  8. Here;s 'the problem'. Palestinians want it ALL. They like the Iranians want Israel and ALL the Jewish people dead and gone….ZERO!!! That's their bottom line. It's been going on for centuries….nothing new.

  9. Jacques Daniel. Very well written Tvzi Ben Gedalyahu. It is not the settlement it is that they want the whole land of Israel. America is helping the Palestinians by her program saying the 1967 condition.
