GUEST POST: Time Magazine vs Truth

Time Magazine vs Truth
(a guest post by Mr. Cohen)

This essay is a critical analysis of the article titled:
World Beyond Hope” by Karl Vick, published in
Time Magazine, on 2018 May 28, on page 26.
______________________________________________
In this article about the Palestinians in Gaza, 3 of the 4 pictures
show Palestinians suffering. There are no pictures of Palestinians
holding weapons. Their protests are described twice as peaceful.
______________________________________________
In this article, there was no mention of the fact that the
Palestinian protesters in Gaza repeatedly attempted
to destroy the security wall that protects Israel from terrorists.

In this article, there was no mention of the fact that the
protesters were armed with knives, clubs and Molotov Cocktails.

In this article, there was no mention of the fact that the
Palestinians in Gaza have repeatedly dug underground
tunnels into Israel, so they could kill and kidnap Israeli civilians.

In this article, there was no mention of the fact that the
Palestinians in Gaza have repeatedly sent kites loaded
with flammables into Israel, which has caused numerous
fires, which has destroyed both crops and nature preserves.
 
In this article, there was no mention of the fact that the
Palestinians in Gaza shot thousands of rockets and
missiles into Israel, mostly aimed at civilian targets.

In this article, there was no mention of the fact that the
Palestinians have repeatedly rejected peace offers from
Israel, peace offers that would have given them 99%
of what they wanted.

[Or more accurately, the Palestinians were offered 99%
of what they told Western audiences they wanted,
to mislead the Western audiences to believe that
they would accept something less than the total
destruction of Israel, to make themselves seem reasonable.]
 
In this article, there was no mention of the fact that
Muslim hatred against Israel and Jews is often inspired
by Islam’s most important sacred writings: the Koran
and Hadiths. Additionally, Muslim hatred against Israel
and Jews is often inspired by the famous anti-Jewish
forgery titled: “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion”,
which is a perennial best-seller in the Muslim world.

This article never mentions the fact that Palestinian
schools and Palestinian mosques teach hate
and lethal violence against Israel and Jews.

This article never mentions the fact that the
Palestinian Authority (PA) gives cash rewards
to the families of terrorists who died while killing Jews.

In this article, there was no mention of the fact that
thousands of Israeli Jews have been murdered by
Muslims, with countless bombings, car-rammings,
knifings and shootings; the victims have included
teenagers and children and pregnant women.

In this article, there was no mention of the fact that
Hamas, the organization that rules Gaza, is officially
committed to killing ALL Jews, all around the world:
even those Jews who never visited Israel, even those
Jews who are not Zionist, even those Jews who are
anti-Zionist. This is written in the Hamas Charter.
______________________________________________
This article said: “Hamas is SEEN AS
a terrorist group by the US and Europe.”

In this article, there was no mention of the fact that
Hamas has repeatedly pushed Palestinian civilians,
including children, directly into the line-of-gunfire,
so the news-media could report that Palestinians
were killed by Israeli gunfire.

In this article, there was no mention of the fact that
Hamas uses children to dig underground tunnels into
Israel, so they can kill and kidnap Israeli civilians.

In this article, there was no mention of the fact that
Hamas creates shelters to protect themselves,
but no shelters for Palestinian civilians.

In this article, there was no mention of the fact that
Hamas uses Palestinian civilians, including children,
as Human Shields.

In this article, there was no mention of the fact that
Hamas killed hundreds of Arabs and Muslims,
without trial and without civil rights, because
they were seen as violating Islamic law [Sharia]
or because they were viewed as opponents of Hamas.

All this, and author Karl Vick describes Hamas not
as a terrorist group, but merely as being “SEEN AS
a terrorist group”, as if their status as terrorists
were a mere opinion, that is subject to debate.
______________________________________________
Last, but not least, we speak about the Israelis, who
are the only people portrayed as villains in this article.

In this article, there was no mention of the fact that
Israelis warned Palestinian civilians in advance about
their military activities, to reduce civilian casualties. 
This kind of warning is extremely rare,
and you can count on one hand the number
of armies that offer this type of warning.
 
In this article, there was no mention of the fact that
every day, Israel sends trucks filled with food and
medical supplies to Gaza. This inconvenient fact
is routinely omitted by news reporters who want
to promote the false idea that Israel is trying to
kill all the Palestinians.

In this article, there was no mention of the fact that
Israel supplies Gaza with water and electricity,
even when terrorists from Gaza shoot dozens
of missiles and rockets at Israeli civilians.

What The New York Times Isn’t Telling You
About Israel’s Gaza ‘Blockade’
www.algemeiner.com/2018/04/08/what-the-new-york-times-isnt-telling-you-about-israels-gaza-blockade/

In this article, there was no mention of the fact that
Israelis practiced great restraint; they waited for many
months to respond with military force, even when
they were being attacked with thousands of rockets
and missiles from Gaza, which were mostly aimed
at civilian targets.

In this article, there was no mention of the fact that
Israelis practiced great restraint; they waited for many
months to respond with military force, even when
they were being attacked with underground terror tunnels,
designed to kill and kidnap Israeli civilians.

In this article, there was no mention of the fact that
Israelis practiced great restraint; by waiting for many
months to respond with military force, even when
they were being attacked with kites loaded with
flammable materials, flammable materials that
started big forest fires and crop fires.

In this article, there was no mention of the fact that
Israeli is the only democracy in the entire Middle East,
and the only country in the entire Middle East
with modern standards of civil rights, including
freedom of religion and equality for women.

In this article, there was no mention of the fact that
in Israel, Arab citizens have voting rights and are
elected to membership in the Israeli Supreme Court
and membership in the Israeli parliament [the Knesset].

In this article, there was no mention of the fact that
Israel’s government gives money to mosques,
where Muslims gather for prayer.
______________________________________________
CONCLUSION:  The article “World Beyond Hope
by Karl Vick contains no context and no balance;
it is a one-sided propaganda essay that whitewashes
the numerous wrongdoings of Arabs and Muslims,
while portraying Israel and Jews and one-dimensional
villains who just want to kill innocent people for no reason.

Another article, which was featured on the front cover
of Time Magazine, attributed 100% of the blame for
Middle East violence on Israel and Jews, while attributing
0% of the blame for Middle East violence on Arabs
and Muslims. I do not remember the name of this article,
but the front cover displayed a large six-pointed star,
like the six-pointed star on the flag of Israel.

Dennis Prager said:

“Israel, it ought to be recalled, is the only country in
the world targeted for annihilation.  That has been true
from the day it was proclaimed as a state in 1948 until today.

It was true before Israel was forced to conquer East Jerusalem,
Gaza and the West Bank. 

It was true after three Israeli prime ministers: Yitzchak Rabin,
Ehud Barak, and Ehud Olmert, agreed to give up virtually all of
Gaza and the West Bank to the Palestinians to set up a Palestinian state. 

It was [still] true after Israel have every inch of Gaza to the Palestinians.

All of which proves that when Palestinian spokesmen say
they want peace, they do not mean peace WITH Israel,
they mean peace WITHOUT Israel.”
