The Real Face of Rachel Corrie

Not quite the peace activist she has been portrayed as.


"Alarm for journalists!"

Decent people hate to speak about lies, but Philadelphia Inquirer staffer Michael Matza seems to have reached just such a point that in his Oct. 6 story titled "In desperation, Palestinians spin tales to rally support," Matza took on a disturbing angle on the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians that is rarely reported in the mainstream press: The Palestinians Lie.
Read Jonathan S. Tobin on Matza's conclusions.

PA Historians falsify history:

Like all totalitarian regimes, the Palestinians try to rewrite history.

Staged desperation
Watch out for co-liars - this is the way the press cheats us

You’ve probably seen dozens of pictures of Palestinian women crying. The wire services love ’em, decent people sympathize with them.
We all were misled once or more.
Have a look now for a second behind the scenes. Today another revealing photo slipped through the ideological filters, showing the scene as a Palestinian woman performs for a hungry battery of cameramen, staged carefully in front of a picturesque section of the security wall.

By mere co-incidence she chose the English inscription where to cry. One look at the smiling child on the right side makes it clear that this kid well understands the cheating media circus. Is it possible that hundreds of news editors and human right organizations do not?"

Photographers take pictures of a Palestinian woman as she cries next to the 8-meter-tall wall part of the barrier Israel is building to separate the outskirts of Jerusalem from the West Bank in the village of Abu Dis Saturday Feb. 7, 2004. .. (AP Photo/Enric Marti)
The Empire of Lies that threatens all of us

What is the responsibility of the media?
And what can we do?

Regarding the Israeli-Arab conflict in the mass media of the world frequently equal weight is given to information from corrupt police states and proven liars as to information from a vigorous, self-critical democracy.
The pious but fatuous posture is that this is somehow fair, as if truth existed in a moral vacuum, something to be measured by the yard, like calico. Five million Jews in Israel are a vulnerable minority surrounded by 300 million Muslims governed for the most part by authoritarian regimes, quasi-police states that in more than 50 years have never ceased trying to wipe it out by war and terrorism. They muzzle dissent and critical reporting, they run vengeful penal systems and toxic schools, they have failed in almost every measure of social and political justice, they deflect the frustrations of their streets to the scapegoat of Zionism and they breed and finance international terrorism.

Yet many times it is Israel that is regarded with skepticism and sometimes hostility.
This Empire of Lies of the Palestinian Authority and of a large part of the Islam world incites its own population to unprecedented hatred. This Empire of Lies with the help of a greedy an unscrupulous part of the Western media, also threaten the values of the whole democratic civilization, which is a relatively easy victim, having get used to, more or less, speak the truth and believe what is told.

The weak front where the forces of the empire of lies broke through our lines of defense, is the greedy and unscrupulous part of our Western media. Now, is this simply the media's business? Or, is the media responsible? Can the media be held responsible if and when distributing such lies, leading to conclusions which are not much short of blood libels? Is there a chance for a self-purifying process within the media? No easy answers.

One thing for sure. A demanding public may contribute a lot to a better media, by expressing itself actively, in letters to editors, to journalists and to decision-makers. Actually You can take a pen into your hand, write and influence!

Endre Mozes,

Chairman of Take a Pen

Palestinian Authority:
"Israel conspired to burn Al-Aqsa Mosque, Golda Meir "laughed"

The Palestinian Authority (PA) regularly invents and disseminates distorted versions of history that present Israelis as villains and Palestinians as victims. One of the most prominent examples, which receives great attention every year, rewrites history by blaming Israel for a 1969 arson attack on the Al-Aqsa Mosque.




The Stories Behind the Pictures!

The above-left is a famous Associated Press photo showing Israeli troops arresting a young Palestinian child. This photo was sent around the world faster than you could say "Israeli brutality!" It was seen at pro-Palestinian rallies and on anti-Israel websites throughout the world as visible proof that the Palestinians are truly innocent victims.

But notice the above-right photo taken by the very same photographer just minutes earlier. It shows the same little 'innocent" kid throwing rocks at these soldiers. This picture was of course not sent around!


How is it possible that Palestinian children are killed in gun fights?

Look at the pictures below, taken by a Palestinian photographers

Israeli troops moved into a neighborhood at the eastern edge of Gaza City early Wednesday, killing atleast 14 Palestinians and wounding at least 27 others in exchanges of fire, residents said, sparking the bloodiest fighting in Gaza in four months.

Anywhere in the world fighting parties are interested to keep their children away from the violence.

Not so the Palestinians. A child victim has more media value than an adult victim.
