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.
