Two great videos defending Israel in the media

Here are two videos, radically different from each other, but each with the same message. First is Ron Dermer, Israeli Ambassador to the US, who staunchly defends the IDF’s actions while castigating CNN for its biased and lacking coverage of Israel:

Well said Mr. Dermer! Kol hakavod for pointing out CNN’S blatant bias. I’m glad he put them on the spot and embarrassed them in public. Let’s hope we see many more interviews like this. Alternatively let’s hope the media clean up their act.

And here, in absolutely clear terms with no room for misinterpretation, is the American comedienne Joan Rivers (via Fay in the comments and Renana), in an characteristically outspoken (but untypically clean-language) defence of Israel.

Wow! That was brilliant – and even better for being unscripted and so impassioned.

Send me any other pro-Israel videos that you may have seen around the web. We need the morale boost – and the prevailing anti-Israel bias in the media needs to be confronted head on.

Some further pro-Israel reading: Dan Hodges at the Telegraph: “Israel’s critics don’t want a proportionate response. They don’t want a response at all“.  Here’s a tiny excerpt, but read it all:

Like it or not, Israel is a sovereign, democratic state. Not only does it have the right to defend itself, its people expect it to defend itself. And when you’re sitting huddled in a bomb shelter, and then emerge to see the charred remnants of a Qassam rocket sticking out of the roof of your child’s school, I suspect it shapes your perception of what a “proportionate” response actually is.

So what is it that we want? Do we want the troops, the bombs, the cruise missiles, the drones, the artillery, the death squads, the blockades or the sanctions? Because if we say Israel has a right to defend itself, and mean it then, then we’re going to have stop handwringing and start choosing. And if we don’t, then we’re going to have to be honest and admit we don’t want Israel to defend itself at all.

And here’s Richard Littlejohn at the Daily Mail who speculates “What would happen if a Hamas rocket hit a BA plane?”:

Some people seem to think that because Israel has pretty effective air defences, it should absorb the pain and not retaliate.

Israel shelters behind sophisticated technology. Hamas hides behind women and children, in schools, hospitals and mosques.

Yet, as far as its useful idiots in Britain and Europe are concerned, Israel is the only one guilty of ‘war crimes’, no matter how many precautions it takes to avoid innocent deaths.

Hamas has no regard for human life, on either side. Every death is a propaganda victory, amplified by gullible sympathisers in the  Western media.

But there is rarely any condemnation of this cynical campaign of terror, or of its oil-rich sponsors who want to wipe Israel off the face of the earth.

Is Iran going to stop supplying weapons to Hamas? No. Is Qatar going to stop bankrolling terrorism? What do you think?

Again, read it all.

And if you read any other pro-Israel articles online, please share them with us or send me the links in the comments or by email. We all need to have our mood lifted with some moral support.

      Thanks, Fay. We appreciate all support.

      P.S. I was (pleasantly) amazed at CBC’s lead headline today: “Hamas fires rockets, rejecting Israel’s ceasefire extension”

      Of course, the photo was of poor, suffering Palestinians, but at least that’s a SLIGHT improvement over previous days.

        Hi cba, hope you and your family are doing well. Are your daughter’s with you in Israel?

        I think Israel is doing a much better job on the PR side than ever before. You have really great representatives in Bennett and Derner. They are media savvy and take the offensive instead of always having to defer and be defensive.

        I may be being overly optimistic but I think more people are beginning to at least listen to Israel’s side.

    the only problem I saw on the CNN video is that the interviewer doesn’t really accept Ron Dermers explanation.He did a good job though.I would’ve responded to her question about why didn’t we check out the school to see if children weren’t there.I would have asked HER to perhaps volunteer.The soldiers did that last week in that house which blew up &killed a whole load of soldiers.Did she think that they’d let the soldiers in for coffee&cake before killing them?Is she mad? Why should our soldiers further endanger their already endangered lives to save children who should have been moved away already.The kibbutzim on the border havedone this.So why not Gazans? Why isn’t any of that mentioned ever?

    • anneinpt says:

      That’s a very good point. Dermer was excellent but he did miss that point. On the other hand she was badgering him and not always giving him time to answer. He was very “on message” though. I think he got our message across.
