BAA4P: Israel.Media & Social Media

  • Marwa FATAFTA: « Meta’s clampdown on Palestine speech is far from ‘unintentional’» (Informed Comment, Oct 9, 2022): click here!
    A report on the social media giant validated Palestinian experiences of censorship in May 2021, but missed how those policies are biased by design.
  • Ramzy BAROUD: « How Coverage of Palestinians and Israel in NYT and Western Press Obscures the Occupation » (Informed Comment, Aug 26, 2022): click here!
    While US and western mainstream and corporate media remain biased in favour of Israel, they often behave as if they are a third, neutral party. This is simply not the case. Take the New York Times coverage of the latest Israeli war on Gaza as an example. Its article on 6 August, “Israel-Gaza Fighting Flares for a Second Day” is the typical mainstream western reporting on Israel and Palestine, but with a distinct NYT flavour.
  • TAGHREED ALI: « Palestinians claim social media crackdown following latest Gaza war » (Al-Monitor, Aug 18, 2022): click here!
    A fierce attack has been launched on Palestinian social media content, as dozens of accounts of Palestinian activists, journalists and media institutions have been restricted and deleted in the past year and after the latest Israeli war on Gaza.
  • James NORTH: « Biased, dishonest coverage of Israel’s attack on Gaza continues in NPR, ‘NYTimes’ » (Mondoweiss, Aug 9, 2022): click here!

  • Pauline HOFMANN: « Répondre aux attaques ? Je n’ai pas le temps » (LeSoir, 21 juin 2022): click here!
    Francesca Albanese est depuis deux mois la nouvelle rapporteuse spéciale de l’ONU pour les Territoires palestiniens occupés. Ce mandat est l’un des plus sensibles des Nations unies.
  • James NORTH: « ‘NYT’ probe into killing of Shireen Abu Akleh is 6 weeks late — and not enough » (Mondoweiss, June 20, 2022): click here!
    The New York Times finally concludes that the bullet that killed Shireen Abu Akleh “was fired from the approximate position of an Israeli military vehicle." Just like everyone else said!
  • « Mainstream media slammed for sanitising Israel's racist, ultra-nationalist march » (MEMo, May 31, 2022): click here!
    Sections of the mainstream media, including the BBC, have come under fire for "sanitising" Israel's extremely racist and highly provocative flag march in occupied Jerusalem at the weekend.
  • Michel GEVERS, "Le boycott de l’Afrique du Sud: quelles leçons pour la lutte contre l’apartheid en Israël? " (Le Soir, le 7 mai, 2022): clicquez-ici!
    Le récent rapport d’Amnesty International (AI) accusant Israël de pratiquer l’apartheid a frappé l’opinion publique du monde entier. La raison en est que cette organisation de 10 millions de membres est connue pour son sérieux et sa prudence, et que ce rapport est le résultat de quatre années d’enquête. Outre AI, bien d’autres organisations ont dénoncé les crimes d’apartheid et de persécution de l’État d’Israël envers la population palestinienne...
