The talk of the Israeli street today
More evidence that the United Nations needs to be defunded and disbanded . . .
As if we needed any more proof . . . In what continues to be a daily parade of criticism emanating from the UN, Ravina Shamdasani of the UN Human Rights office spent her day condemning the sentence given to our Hevron soldier Elor Azariya as “unacceptable.”
Shamsandani blathered: “This case risks undermining confidence in the justice system and reinforcing the culture of impunity. This is a chronic culture of impunity we are talking about.”
A chronic culture of impunity? Azariya was dragged through the mud for almost a year in a trial that should have never happened.
And what did Shamdasani have to say about the terrorist who was killed–after he had gruesomely stabbed an IDF soldier.
Not a single word.
Or about the failure of the Palestinians to condemn the terrorist’s attack?
Not a single word.
What in the world was Netanyahu thinking? . . .
In an astonishing change, PM Netanyahu ordered the Foreign Ministry to reconsider granting a work permit to a representative of the abominable Human Rights Watch NGO.
Just two days ago, the permit was refused on the grounds that Human Rights Watch is nothing more than a Palestinian propaganda organization. That refusal was absolutely correct and long overdue.
Apparently, Netanyahu didn’t think so and caved in to international pressure.
The Hevron riot today and its fake media coverage . . .
First, the real news:
Hundreds of Palestinian rioters assaulted Israeli soldiers in Hevron this afternoon. The ostensible reason was the 23 anniversary of Baruch Goldstein’s attack on the mosque in the city. Stun grenades, tear gas. and water cannons which fired stinking water were used to suppress the rioters.
The riot secondarily focused on the United States with rioters chanting curses at Trump. Not coincidentally, PLO spokesman Saeb Erekat issued a statement today declaring that now is the most difficult time for the Palestinians since 1948–again because of President Trump and his affinity for Israel.
Now the fake news:
Simultaneous to the riots, international media including CNN and ABC news in the U.S. ran “breaking news” stories from Hevron about how “a large banner of Trump” had hundreds of shoes thrown at it. The story was picked up by news outlets around the world.
Unfortunately for CNN and its cronies, the following picture shortly appeared thereafter courtesy of Hazem Bader of Agence France Presse:
In the first place, is this a large banner? Not really. In the second, how many pairs of shoes do you see? Maybe 6 pairs?
Then CNN and its cronies wanted to talk about how the large crowd ripped down the banner. But unfortunately, again, there is a picture:
Well . . . hundreds of people? To your humble servant, it appears there are 3 young teenagers ripping up the poster with two bystanders–one young boy and one older man.
Can anyone believe anything they read or see on CNN or the mainstream media anymore?
