Quote:With the enlarged international audience for English-language Israeli news that has been opened by the Internet, Ynet’s entry into the market will make for a good old-fashioned newspaper brawl in the coming months. The terms and the winners of this competition could shape the way the international community, and especially American Jewry, receives information about Israel.

hmmmm so.... let's look at the definition of Hasbara

wikipedia Wrote:Public diplomacy in Israel (also hasbara) (Hebrew: הַסְבָּרָה‎ hasbará, "explaining") refers to public relations efforts to disseminate abroad positive information about Israel.[1][2] The term is used by the Israeli government and its supporters to describe efforts to explain government policies and promote Israel in the face of negative press, and to counter what they see as delegitimisation of Israel around the world. Hasbara means "explanation", and is also a euphemism for propaganda.

Historian Giora Goodman considers "hasbara" to mean "propaganda" in practice, explaining

The term "propaganda" acquired a pejorative sense during the first half of the twentieth century. Accordingly, British and American propagandists used "information" to describe their work and the positive-sounding word hasbara has generally been preferred in Hebrew. "Propaganda", ta’amula in Hebrew, is mostly reserved for what opponents do, but the term was often used by the Zionist movement to portray its own efforts to influence mass audiences
please do remember that when you talk blatant SHIT online the chances are you will be caught out.. and you have.
so .. the papers there are just as guilty of hasbara as you are ....

RE: Foreign journalists reveal Hamas' false front

Is far from when you think it is.

Just so you know most Israelis doesn't consider this site as Pro-Israel.

So what? some historian claims that It's propaganda, It obviously sits with your anti Israeli views so you just take anything pro Israel as a lie ?

Western media and "embedded journalists" in Gaza become aware of Hamas war propaganda

Quote:Media Suddenly Discover Hamas War Crimes

Throughout the war between Israel and Hamas, western journalists in Gaza failed to report anything other than civilian casualties caused by Israeli air strikes. It took the accidental, frightening appearance of Hamas rockets being fired on live TV – using journalists as human shields – for the media to report that Hamas was, as Israel had alleged, firing rockets from civilian areas. Now, with the ceasefire, journalists are finally reporting the truth.

Quote:French Gaza Reporter Ducks for Cover as Hamas Rocket Interrupts Broadcast

Al-Kas is far from the only journalist to get too close for comfort with the looming Hamas terrorist threat, though her encounter may be the most vividly chronicled. Journalists who have since returned from Gaza have told of numerous threats from the terrorist group to distort the truth to make Hamas look good and demonize Israel. Italian journalist Gabriele Barbati, for example, tweeted upon his arrival home to confirm that Hamas, not Israeli soldiers, had struck the Shati refugee camp, killing children. He had previously tweeted that Hamas was responsible for the attack while still in Gaza but deleted his report. His later tweet, which noted that he was now far "from Hamas retaliation," indicated that he would not have felt safe reporting the news should he be near Hamas at all.

Other journalists – both international and American, such as one reporter from the Wall Street Journalhave reported being harassed by the group to misreport the news in their favor. According to the Times of Israel, a reporter for the French newspaper Quest France reported that he had been "interrogated and intimidated by Hamas officials in what appeared to be their office in Shifa." An unnamed Israeli official corroborated his point: “We have no doubt that Hamas, through coercion and violence, limits the freedom of foreign journalists in Gaza."

Photojournalists are also in danger. According to a Spanish journalist speaking to Israeli filmmaker Michael Grynszpan, one major reason that most of the images surfacing from Gaza are of injured women and children is because Hamas threatens with death anyone who dares photograph their fighters, who are a multitude throughout the region. "We did see Hamas people there launching rockets," explained the unnamed journalist, "they were close to our hotel, but if we ever dare pointing [sic] our camera on them they would simply shoot at us and kill us."

Quote:Media Comment: No war reporting in Gaza

The truly dangerous press is the one which prostitutes itself.


[former editorial page writer for The Wall Street Journal Europe, Daniel Schwammenthal] noted the willful blindness in Western media reporting when the subject is Hamas in Gaza. It is a throwback to the PLO bullying three decades ago in Lebanon. He suggested that “many of the journalists are also terrified of telling the truth.”


JTA’s Uriel Heilman took on The New York Times, asking some very basic questions: why haven’t pictures of Hamas fighters inside Gaza been seen in the media? Isn’t it odd that rockets and mortars are fired off by unseen hands? We see both sides in the Ukraine, in Syria and even in Libya. Gaza is a unique battlefield, one that is one-sidedly sterile. Can it be that every Hamas combatant is underground and out of view?


France’s Liberation published on July 24 that Radjaa Abou Dagga, correspondent for Ouest France, had been intimidated by aggressive Hamas interrogation methods.

On his Facebook page of July 30, filmmaker Michael Grynszpan related meeting that day a Spanish journalist who had just come back from Gaza. He asked him, “How come we never see on television channels reporting from Gaza any Hamas people, no gunmen, no rocket launchers, no policemen?” The frank reply was, “It’s very simple, we did see Hamas people there launching rockets, they were close to our hotel, but if ever we dare pointing our camera at them they would simply shoot at us and kill us.”

This reminds us of the 2006 incident in which CNN’s Nic Robertson admitted – after leaving Lebanon – that Hezbollah has “slick media operations... had control of the situation. They designated the places that we went to [...]

One correspondent for Finnish TV, Aishi Zidan, inadvertently confirmed that Hamas fired rockets from the parking lot of Shifa Hospital. Gabriel Barbati, an Italian reporter, tweeted on July 29, “Out of #Gaza far from #Hamas retaliation: misfired rocket killed children 2day in Shati. Witness: militants rushed and cleared debris.”


Another example of extraordinary candid journalism is Indian Srinivasan Jain from NDTV who documented how Hamas sets up and fires a rocket from within a densely populated area, as has now France 24 reporter Gallagher Fenwick. The 5Pillarz site informed that Harry Fear, a reporter for Russia’s RT channel, was ordered to leave Gaza by Hamas after tweeting the location of rocket launchers.


The willingness of the international press to prostitute itself emerges clearly from Saul O’s list of “40 questions for the international media in Gaza” at the British Harry’s Place on July 31 and republished at the Volokh blog which is hosted by The Washington Post. These are some of his questions: “Has Hamas pressured you to delete anything you have published? Are you scared to publish photos of Hamas operatives on your news channel? Have you put to Hamas spokespersons that firing rockets from civilian areas in a war situation will draw return fire and lead to the death of civilians? Have you seen or heard evidence of Hamas storing weapons inside schools, houses, flats, mosques or hospitals? Have you tried to interview any of the parents of the 160 Palestinian children who died building the terror tunnels?”

We could add more: have the journalists inquired into how many local Gazans were killed and injured as a result of Hamas rockets falling short or exploding upon launch? Are there no natural deaths in Gaza, from accidents, old age or health issues, or are all a result of Israel’s actions? Are there truly no open spaces and fields from which the rockets could be launched, rather than from school-yards, mosques and hospitals?

Blogger Elder of Ziyon wrote, “Every single report on TV from Gaza should have this disclaimer: ‘Our reporters have been threatened, implicitly and perhaps explicitly, by Hamas to report only one side of the story. Viewers must not trust anything they are saying.’” [...]

Sounds like "Embedded Journalists" again.

Quote:Israel’s press office says it gathered testimony from foreign journalists regarding harassment by Hamas while working


Following the ceasefire that went into effect Tuesday morning, the press office said it gathered testimony from foreign journalists regarding harassment by Hamas activists while trying to carry out their assignments.

“Journalists said that during their coverage of the fighting they received threats and – in several cases – were the victims of violence that included destruction of their equipment because they had documented criminal activity by Hamas such as the launching of rockets from the heart of civilian areas,” the press office statement said.

Quote:A reporter explains what it’s like being trapped in the Gaza propaganda war

GAZA CITY – The scene was too neat.

I had just arrived outside the shattered remains of a large mosque in central Gaza City last week. It had been pulverized by an Israeli airstrike. There was rubble, glass and metal everywhere. But on a patch of ground in front of the structure, visible for everyone to see, was a small, dusty carpet.

On top lay piles of burned, ripped copies of the Koran, Islam’s holy book. The symbolism was obvious, almost too perfect. It was clear that someone had placed them there to attract sympathy for the Palestinian cause. A television crew spotted the pile and filmed it. Mission accomplished.


In Gaza, it’s a different kind of manipulation, more raw, more visceral, and yet at the same time, more subtle than Israel’s media machine.

Take the attack in the Beach Camp neighborhood of Gaza City last week. Hamas militants blamed an Israeli strike; Israel declared that Hamas accidentally fired a mortar into the neighborhood. Children had died.

In the middle of the road, where the kids were killed, was a small pool of blood. At first glance, it evoked a sense of sadness and outrage. As I looked closer, I noticed a child’s slipper in the middle of the blood. The slipper was intact. There were no bloodstains. And next to the slipper, a black plastic toy gun.

Again I noticed a television cameraman drawn to this powerful image. I moved on.

Earlier that day in Shifa Hospital in Gaza City, as the dead and wounded were being rushed into the building, I saw a girl, no older than 7, dressed in a yellow and blue dress, speaking in front of a television camera.

“Bring back my brother and father,” she cried, visibly upset.

Her mother, seated next to her, whispered into her ear and nudged her.

“They were kids,” the girl continued, following her mother’s coaching. “They were just playing. What is their crime, for Israel to target them? They are just kids.”

A couple of days later, an Israeli airstrike obliterated the home of Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh. By the time foreign reporters arrived, loyalists had placed his portrait on top of the rubble and firmly planted a green Hamas flag, evoking a sense of defiance.

Little girl placed next to dead Jihadi for the cameras

yep, the heavyweight champion that gloriously beats up a new born baby, as Max Igan puts it:

Quote:Max Igan - Hour 1 - Zionist Terrorism in Gaza
July 30, 2014
From New South Wales, Australia Max Igan runs the website, which covers a vast array of different topics spanning from government corruption to the mysteries of our ancient past. In this program we discuss Zionist terrorism in Gaza and the current bombing campaign and ethnic cleansing of Palestinians. We’ll talk about the lies pushed by the Zionist controlled mainstream on this issue and the double standards of Israel’s policies. Max also talks about his visit to the Gaza Strip and the many kind Palestinians he met there. He tells us how he entered in to the checkpoint ridden area using one of the many tunnels from the Egyptian side, where he also met border officers from Hamas. ...
