Jewish settlers killed and maimed, MSM yawns then goes back to Jew bashing

Phyllis Chesler:

Four young civilians — human beings, fathers, mothers, one of whom was also pregnant, collectively the parents of seven children — were brutally gunned down by armed, masked terrorists. Their murders were openly celebrated in the streets by their attackers and by thousands of their supporters.

You would think that the world would recoil in horror — or that those who report the news, worldwide, would do so. Think again. These four precious souls were Israeli “settlers” and, as such, have already been so demonized that they are now seen as having provoked their bloody, pitiless deaths.

First, they came for the settlers. Then, they came for the secular Israeli pro-peace demonstrators in Jerusalem, Haifa, and Tel Aviv. And then they came for ….you and me.

Predictably, sadly, my three local area New York City newspapers present this tragic news in very different ways.

Allow me to first quote from the Bible of the intelligentsia, aka the New York Times, which presents this incident on page 4, not on page 1; the early pages are usually reserved for all incidents in which Israelis fight back so that Israeli “evil” is seen immediately and framed as among the most “important” world news of the day. The accompanying Times headline? Unbelievably, it is this: “Killing of 4 Israeli Settlers on the Eve of Peace Talks Rattles Leaders on Both Sides.” It’s really not clear who killed the “settlers.”  What is clear is that “both sides” are “rattled.” The piece opens with a paragraph that made me see red, both literally and metaphorically. It reads as follows:

“The killing of four Israeli settlers, including a pregnant woman, in the West Bank on Tuesday evening rattled Israeli and Palestinian leaders on the eve of peace talks in Washington and underscored the disruptive role that the issue of Jewish settlements could play in the already fragile negotiations.”

Note: This opening paragraph literally blames the past and future peace failures on the Israeli settlements. The Timesneither blames nor characterizes Hamas accurately. It does not say the Arab Muslim terrorist group, Hamas — the Palestinian version of the Muslim Brotherhood in Gaza, probably also backed by Iran and Hezbollah, and the group which is claiming responsibility for the attack — is also responsible for a deadly civil war with the not-so-moderate President Abbas; an Islamist war on Palestinian women, homosexuals, and dissidents; and a jihadic war against the Jews, which began a long time ago and which will never stop until either such terrorist leaders and their propaganda are utterly vanquished militarily or until the Jews have been driven out of the Holy Land once again.

Ms. Chesler has more, all of it worthy of your time. 

Since she’s penned the piece, more of the same has occurred but it’s difficult to find related MSM articles yet this is understandable, it’s just Jews that are being killed, just Jews that are being critically injured.  Just Jews.  Joooos.

Move on folks… nothing here to see…

    Of course it was greeted with a yawn. It’s just Jews and Israeli Jews at that. It’s not like anyone was murdered that really mattered (like Hammas Terrorists). It’s the same old passive antisemitism we’ve seen in certain otherwise “progressive” self-appointed elites (esp Ivy League ones) for decades (certainly well into the 19th century).

    It does make me wonder why Jews still support the Dems by 7:3 margins.

    Aw, crap. I had this story picked for a posting, and Rick scoops me…

    I think I can still salvage it, though.

    “Operator, get me rewrite!”

    Sorry about that J… but on the brighter side, how much better will your piece be now that you’ve got to re-write it…

  • SPQR

    I wouldn’t be too concrned aout it. I noticed that the story is being covered on other websites today, with upsetting pictures on some sites, and that’s where an ever increasing number of people are going to get their news nowadays.

    Ain’t it so predictable, Hamas takes credit for another atrocity and O’Mamba courageously postures that terrorists will not stop him.

    But Hamas is Ok to fund raise for the GZ mosque!

    Resign or we’ll make your presidential library of a minaret.

    gary gulrud [to Obama]: “Resign or we’ll make your presidential library of a minaret.”

    Dude, that’s already Obama’s PLAN!!

    Obama will posture about this being a “tragedy”…while feeling a Chris Mathews like tingle run up his leg.

  • G.

    I think Mathews gets a tingle at the thought of feeling up Obama’s leg. eh?

    A one liner about this yesterday as the BBC went orbital about the speeches by the participants in the mid-East Peace Talks.

  • Upset Old Guy

    As I recall, Abbas made a statement late last week about how if there was no agreement to come out of this meeting it would be Israel’s fault. A couple days later this ambush occurs… and Hamas praised the ambush as their supporters dance in the streets.

    This calls for a response by the Obama administration that is stronger than a “time-out” and it needs to be delivered publicly at the peace talks. However, I don’t have any expectations of them doing anything that will make us proud or even doing anything at all.
