Lack of Context

Now we know where they learn it.

As the article says you have to admire the sheer bloody-minded consistent bias of the Guardian’s editors. Not content with constantly posting articles about Israel devoid of context, they admire how a photographer has created an image “divested of context” designed to show a solitary figure we are obviously supposed to assume is a “Palestinian youth” being bombarded for no particular reason in a huge “assault” of tear gas fired by, we are supposed to assume, a myriad of Israelis.

Much the same as the anti-Israel bloggers here - who fall over themselves in finding out of context stories with which to pillory Israel but I have yet to see them post anything showing the Palestinians, who they profess to support, in a good light - I wonder why? (Or maybe I don't!)

Oh please. CIFWatch has as much credibility as JCWatch. It's a blog and you know what a blog is like....I'll give you a hint....everyone has one. Both sites exist for the sole purpose of countering the news and reality of the Israeli occupation of Palestine.

And why the JC even gives you a forum after what I've read you have published about the editor, reporters and moderators here, is beyond me.

If only lack of credibility was the worst of it. Cifwatch is a bunch of paranoid, indiscerning, nothing better to do with their time whiners.

This photo is not meant to convey comprehensive, fully contextualised political detail. It is a piece of photographic ART. In the background is concentrated traces of teargas. In the fore to omid ground stands a young man. We are told more then enough to appreciate the photo for what IT IS.

The scene is Nabi Saleh. The gas is being fired by the IDF. The young man is Palestinian and he LOOKS ON. NOT That HE is on the receiving end of an assault by myriad Israelis. How much more context do you need ?

I bet you guys are a hoot to go to an Art gallery with.

Perhaps you might wish to explain what that is supposed to mean.

As for the rest of what you and Mary have posted all I can repeat is I have yet to see any of you Israel haters post anything showing the Palestinians, who you profess to support, in a good light all I see is negativism against Israel and ad hominem attacks on anyone who professes to support Israel - quite pathetic really.

I got a big laugh from the female demonstrator in the
"Zombietime Hall of Shame" calling for Outlawing
Heterosexuality. You couldn't make this stuff up.
