YESTERDAY I WAS A SELF HATING JEW ~~ TODAY I HAVE BEEN VINDICATED
July 26, 2008 at 16:25 (Israel, Media, Palestine, Soldier Brutality)
Yesterday I posted THIS implying that myself and other Jews who expose the crimes committed by Israel were destroying Israel’s self image.
Today, the Jerusalem Post makes it very clear that the image Israel wishes to convey is being destroyed by themselves, not by me.
ANOTHER CASE in which the media found itself on the firing line this week is the footage that featured prominently on every local and many foreign news broadcasts of an IDF soldier deliberately shooting a rubber-tipped bullet into the foot of a bound-and-blindfolded Palestinian, arrested for taking part in a violent protest against the West Bank security barrier.
The incident was filmed by one of the many Palestinians supplied with video cameras by the Palestinian-rights organization, B’tselem, especially to capture on tape incidents just like this.
Needless to say, this illegal, immoral and stupid act caused Israel image-damage way out of proportion to the severity of the offense.
Obviously, if the incident hadn’t been caught on tape, it would barely have rated a mention in most foreign media reports, and it’s difficult to imagine that similar such occurrences elsewhere in the world would ever get such coverage.
