Letter on Kristoff Not Published

I sent this letter to the NYTimes but they didn't publish it (as usual):-

In one of two recent articles on Israel, Nicholas Kristoff writes that American politicians need to remember "which Israel to support" ("The Two Israels, Mar. 1) after to talking with agitprop activist Asher Ascherman but in another ("The Human Stain", Feb. 26) admits that he "could have talked to settler children traumatized by Palestinian violence", but didn't.  That is an admission of unethical journalism.  His lack of professional standards also leads him to believe, and publish, claims of an Arab farmer from Sinjil, where I live, that "settlers" cut down "5,000 trees last year...with shears or uprooted them” with no further substantiation or reaction from the "guilty" or an official Israeli agency.

Those claims, as many others in his columns, are fabricated and are weapons of propaganda engagement employed by Arabs to enchant visiting media people. Their purpose is to undercut American support for Israel to which his hand and keyboard has been extended.  Facts would better serve all but there were little in his pieces.  I live there and I know but Mr. Kristoff had no time or inclination to get the full story.

Netanyahu and Politically-Correct Language

I spotted this in a GPO press release communicated from the Prime Minister's Office:

Schedule for PM Netanyahu's Address
(Communicated by the Prime Minister's Media Adviser)
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will, tomorrow (Tuesday, 3 March 2015), address a joint session of the US Congress. The schedule of events is as follows (all times US Eastern Standard Time):

...10:25 – Meet with US House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner (R-OH). Speaker Boehner will present PM Netanyahu with a head sculpture of Winston Churchill with an inscription of the PM's name and the date of his address. 

"Head sculpture"? 

I was taught that the term is a "bust".

"bust [buhst]
a sculptured, painted, drawn, or engraved representation of the upper part of the human figure, especially a portrait sculpture showing only the head and shoulders of the subject"

Some "GraphicZionism".

Temple Mount Removal

Don't get excited.

The headline means that there was a removal at and from the Temple Mount, not that itself was removed:

The source claims tree branches and other weather damage remains.

The Incoming But No Warning Map

Based on the map that was used during Operation Protection Edge this past summer to warn the populace of in-coming rockets/missiles, this map was created which is the one that would be used if, as presumed, Hamas comes to rule Judea and Samaria once Israel retreats/withdraws:

The legend, at the top left reads:

15 Seconds
30 Seconds
45 Seconds
One Minute
A minute and a half
Three minutes

Everthing clear?

Netanyahu's Nazi-like Screenshot

How to turn a Zionist calling for Jews to come home after being threatened and killed in countries who seem lax to protect the Jews into a ... Nazi?

Brutal and Outrageous

This report just came in, or did it?

US President Barack Obama has denounced the killing of the Jewish guard shot by a Muslim in Copenhagen, Denmark as a "brutal and outrageous murder".  In a statement, Mr Obama said no one should be targeted for "what they look like" or "how they worship".

Oh, sorry, I mixed things up.

This is what he said after criticism from Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan over Obama's silence on the killing of three Muslims:

US President Barack Obama has denounced the killing of three Muslim students in Chapel Hill, North Carolina as "brutal and outrageous murders".  In a statement, Mr Obama said no one in the US should be targeted for "what they look like" or "how they worship".
