HONEST MEDIA? CNN’s Jihad On Israel

Written by Audrey Russo on November 19, 2014

It’s no secret that the Western media has been less than honest, accurate or professional for some time. But CNN‘s recent reporting on an Islamic attack on a Synagogue in Jerusalem begs the question…

Is CNN intentionally stoking hate toward Jews and Israel?

A stretch you say? I beg to differ…

According to Algemeiner.com, two Palestinian terrorists invaded the Kehilat Yaakov synagogue in Jerusalem at about 07:00 a.m., opened fire with weapons and struck worshipers with a meat cleaver and knives. The results were 4 dead innocent, unarmed Jews, 3 of which were Americans…and several others wounded. Two police officers in the area were able to shoot and kill the Jihadists.

Hamas in Gaza praised the attack, calling it “heroic.” “There is no solution for the Palestinian question except through Jihad.”

Perhaps CNN agreed with Hamas…here is how CNN reported the terrorist attack on innocent Jews worshiping in the temple:

— During a CNN interview with Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat an erroneous caption was above the Mayor’s name and read “Deadly Attack On Jerusalem Mosque”.
CNN reporter Ben Wedeman was responsible for the headline depicting the massacre under the headline, “Israeli police shot dead two Palestinian civilians.” No mention of the horrific slaughter on innocent Jews that these two TERRORISTS (not civilians) just committed.

Of course, this is not the first time CNN‘s reporting on Israel has been biased. The issues are many, including CNN’s Diana Magnay calling Israeli’s “scum” in a tweet after cheering a rocket that fell into Gaza.

The question of accountability and integrity are critical here. Is CNN incapable of comprehending the consequences of reporting criminally negligent bias against Jews, in a world population with a critical rise in anti-Semitism? Are they intentionally stoking the fires of hatred for Jews in the Middle East and elsewhere, which will put the lives of the innocent in peril? Do their reporters harbor such loathing for the Jewish State that they are incapable of controlling their emotions?

Now, if CNN wants to announce itself an independent Leftist, Jew-hating, 501c4 group, I have no problem…have at it. BUT, I think it’s time they relinquish their press credentials, because this current media jihad on Israel has rendered them impotent on integrity.

Shalom through strength…
