Zionist Media Indifferently Yawns Over Israeli Calls For Palestinian Holocaust
March 2, 2008
By Patrick Grimm
Matan Vilnai, a deputy defense minister in Israel, called for a “Shoah” or Holocaust against the Palestinian people several days ago, purportedly in response to Palestinian rockets being fired from Gaza. But in all truth his remarks vary little from the threats of violence issued forth from countless Israeli prime ministers and military officials in the past. This story has received some very limited and tepid coverage from several major newspapers in Europe, such as the UK Telegraph , but little mention in American papers and periodicals as of yet. In fact, the New York Times has not touched the story at all, nor are they likely to.
There are those in America who attempt to deny the strength and influence of Zionists in shaping the news, and if they will ever concede that Zionist Jews possess any inordinate power at all, they will then tell anyone who seems in the least concerned about it that “Well, they report the news as patriotic Americans who just happen to be Jews. It doesn’t mean that there is any sort of built-in bias.”
Yet imagine if you will the reactions which would pour forth from the op-ed pages of the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal, or the histrionic round-the-clock reporting by CNN, Fox News, CBS, NBC, ABC, MSNBC and hell, even Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity or any other pundit, left, right or center, if ANY prominent Palestinian leader sounded off about a “Holocaust against the Jews” or a “Holocaust against the Israelis.” President Bush would immediately condemn such remarks as a call for genocide. Every single Jewish group starting with the Anti-Defamation League and the American-Israeli Public Affairs Committee would see the portents of a “second Holocaust” and demand immediate action. Some would even call for the destroying of every Palestinian citizen. At the very least, any money or food supplies that might be leaking through to Palestine would be halted and withheld wholesale. There would be shrill cries about how such words amounted essentially to a bulls-eye on the head of every man, woman and child in Israel, and possibly to every Jew upon the earth. In the eyes of the media, such a declaration from a Palestinian leader would be tantamount to murder itself.
But in the United States, there are no righteously indignant reactions to a clear call for mass murder coming from an Israeli official, and in all likelihood there will not be any such reactions forthcoming. There will be no heated and sanctimonious coverage or pointed polemics in major newspapers, magazines or periodicals labeling the Israeli defense minister’s words an evil and inexcusable incitement to genocide. There are only yawns of indifference or the collusive silence of media organs which long ago gave up on objectivity or even-handedness.
If there is no “built-in bias” in the press’ coverage, including their coverage of the Middle East conflagration, then let me ask you this question: Where is the outrage against this clarion call that DOES amount to a bulls-eye placed on the head of every man, woman and child in Palestine, every non-Jew now forced to live in substandard conditions and who now barely dangle on the edge of survival? There is none. There is only silence. There is silence because Zionist Jews do control our media and mold and shape its coverage. They choose what to keep and what to excise in their stories. They are responsible for what every American will read in their daily newspaper or weekly news magazine. They decide which current events are amplified and which are ignored on the nightly news programs that millions count on for “objectivity”.
The fact that Israel can get away with such bellicosity with no blowback in the media, serves to show the vice grip of censorship and subterfuge now exercised over our information by the partisans of Zionism. That extremists working in the service of the Zionist state now control most spigots of information in America should now be abundantly clear. That this statistical fact is also never discussed openly on the public airwaves or in print should only further drive home the reality of a media controlled by those with allegiances and agendas alien to many Americans.
