Reuters shows its bias against Israel again

The

But it doesn’t get any better:

(Reuters) – Israel pounded targets across the Gaza Strip on Tuesday, saying no ceasefire was near as top U.S. and U.N. diplomats pursued talks on halting fighting that has claimed more than 600 lives.

…”A ceasefire is not near,” said Justice Minister Tzipi Livni, viewed as the most dovish member of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s inner security cabinet.

“I see no light at the end of the tunnel,” she told Israel’s Army Radio.

Dispatched by U.S. President Barack Obama to the Middle East to seek a ceasefire, Kerry held talks on Tuesday in Cairo with Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shukri.

“There is a framework … to end the violence and that framework is the Egyptian initiative,” Kerry said at a joint news conference with Shukri.

“For the sake of thousands of innocent families whose lives have been shaken and destroyed by this conflict, on all sides, we hope we can get there as soon as possible,” he said.

The Reuters dispatch does not say a word about Israel accepting the Egyptian framework for a ceasefire, and Hamas rejecting it. And while it does mention Hamas rockets, in no way are they characterized as somehow being against the concept of a ceasefire.

The entire article is meant to give the exact opposite impression from the truth.

Not surprisingly, one of the reporters is Noah Browning (@SheikhNB on Twitter), who I have shown to be a liar more than once.

And this is the most pervasive source of news in the world.

Israel treating injured 16 year old terrorist. Also witnesses see 13 year olds with suicide belts.

Unreal.

From Times of Israel liveblog:

A 16-year-old Palestinian terrorist is being treated in an Israeli hospital after being captured during a pre-dawn Monday terror attack on southern Israel when he emerged from one of Hamas’s cross-border tunnels.

The 16-year-old Hamas assailant is being treated in Ashkelon’s Barzilai Hospital and is described as being in moderate condition, Israel Radio reports on Tuesday afternoon.

He was unconscious when hospitalized, the report says.

The teenager was captured after emerging from a tunnel dug from Gaza into southern Israel along with several other terrorists. In the pre-dawn attack, two groups of Hamas terrorists emerged from two tunnel exits, one inside the Israeli border near Kibbutz Nir Am, and the other near Erez, also on Israeli territory, several kilometers northeast of the Gaza city of Beit Hanoun.

It is unclear which squad the teen belonged to.

A second Hamas terrorist is also in an Israeli hospital, Beersheba’s Soroka Hospital, the report says.

The report adds that IDF soldiers being treated in Israeli hospitals for injuries sustained while fighting in Gaza said they encountered 13- and 14-year-old Palestinian children running at them wearing explosives-laden suicide-bomber belts.

OK, so now we have children being used as suicide bombers and terrorists.

And Israel treating their injuries.

More details and other incidents:

Wounded soldiers have given shocking testimony regarding Hamas’ use of young children as human shields.

Parents of wounded soldiers spoke to Kol Yisrael on Tuesday and shared some of the disturbing stories they had heard from their sons. They said soldiers have repeatedly seen young children in Sheijaya, Gaza, be sent out into the streets with guns to try to attack IDF troops.

One parent reported that terrorists had run at IDF soldiers with a gun in one hand and a baby in the other, apparently in hopes that the soldiers would see the child and hold their fire. If soldiers fired, the parent added, the child’s death could be used as propaganda against Israel.

“They’re continuing the same trick of using children as human shields, just as they did in Operation Cast Lead,” one father said. Women are used as human shields as well, he added.

He expressed frustration at figures on the Israeli far-left who have accused IDF soldiers of committing war crimes. Israel’s soldiers do everything they can to avoid hurting innocent people, he said.

But let’s not let that cloud the thinking of those who want to characterize Israel as a Nazi state and Hamas as liberal freedom fighters. They want …read more

Mother Trespassed out of Hospital after Photographing Son

By Carlos Miller

from Photography is Not a Crime: PINAC.

If today’s

Mandi Kay Wilson takes photos of her son during these visits to post online, part of a Go Fund Me campaign to help raise money for her son’s medical expenses.

But last week, the audiologist berated her for taking photos, insisting that it was against policy to photograph her son in her office. The doctor then admitted she was upset because a framed picture of the her daughter had come doctor’s daughter came out in the background of one of Wilson’s previous photos her previous photos she had posted online.

And you know how weird people get about their kids being getting photographed. But to freak out over a photo of a photo? One that she evidently was proud to display in her office?

It get worse ….

The doctor called a security guard, who told her she had no right to photograph her son because of the federal HIPAA law, which is a huge misconception we’ve seen played out many times over the years by cops, paramedics and hospital staff.

HIPAA laws pertain to the privacy of medical records and has nothing to do with photography or videography in hospitals, especially of your own relative (patients with an expectation of privacy should not be photographed against their will but that wouldn’t fall under the HIPAA law).

Wilson began recording. Here is part of their conversation:

Guard: “Even if it’s like your own child or whatever, it’s just how the federal government how their regulations are. How many pictures do you have on your phone right now that were taken on property?”

Mother: “I don’t know.”

Guard: “Okay, um, could I see those please?”

Mother: “No.”

Guard: “Okay, here’s what is going to happen if you do not cooperate. I am going to have to escort you off the property.”

Mother: “Okay.”

Guard: “We will trespass you and they will probably fire you as a patient.”

Mother: “That’s fine, I’m already going to withdraw from Mercy that’s okay.”

Guard: “Okay, um, I need to see your identification.”

Mother: “Are you security? What’s it for? I’m going leave.

Guard: “It’s for legal, I need to see identification.”

Mother: “What kind of legal purposes?”

Guard: “I have to do a report on this because your being trespassed.”

Mother: “I’m trespassing for what?”

Guard: “You are being trespassed for violation of HIPAA.”

Mother: “I didn’t know …read more

HRW's Ken Roth proves his anti-Israel bias in tweet meant to do the opposite

By Elder of Ziyon (noreply@blogger.com)

Ken Roth, the executive director of Human Rights Watch, proves his anti-Israel bias in an absurd tweet intended to show HRW is unbiased!

No one is saying that Israelis “poor, helpless, defenseless” – that is Ken Roth’s own hate of the Jewish state revealing itself quite publicly.

Because the evidence of HRW’s, and Ken Roth’s bias against Israel is incontrovertible.

The quick answer to his tweet is the huge amount of resources and attention HRW has given to castigating Israel (and the US) compared to every other country on the planet. Multiple, huge reports are written about events with death tolls that are a fraction of those in other areas of the world. Here I compare HRW’s attention given to every country compared to their Freedom House scores - there is no correlation.

Here are only some examples I’ve written about over the years:

  • HRW does not support equal rights for Palestinians in Lebanon who want to become citizens.
  • Ken Roth insulted Israel when it announced plans to save the lives of Syrian Alawites, even as no other country in the world was doing anything for Syrians.
  • Ken Roth wrote an article castigating Israel that had quite a few lies. he tried to weasel out of some but never admitted his errors.
  • HRW never answers whether they believe Jews have the right to pray on their holiest spot.
  • HRW once had its employees write pro-HRW comments on numerous websites pretending that they were ordinary people – engaging in “sock-puppetry” – in defense of their employee with the Nazi memorabilia obsession.
  • A HRW researcher falsely claimed Palestinian Arabs in the territories live in “shanties” while Jews live in “spacious villas.”

This is beyond looking at their reports and press releases on Israel and the numerous patterns of bias, ignoring any facts that contradict their pre-conceived anti-Israel bias, as well as proof …read more
