The Palestinian Guardian (A photographic look at political advocacy parading as journalism)

So much of left-wing thought is a kind of playing with fire by people who don’t even know that fire is hot. – George Orwell

No, that’s certainly not true of all left-wing thought, but certainly the Guardian variety.

Robin Shepherd recently observed  the following in response to an Observer editorial (which argued that the only possible moral position is to support Palestinian UDI) and commenting more broadly on the Guardian group’s pro-Palestinian advocacy:

Anyone but a fool can see that this is a blatant attempt to avoid direct negotiations with Israel so as to obviate the need for the kind of concessions that meaningful negotiations always entail….And anyone but…an implacable anti-Zionist can see that the whole enterprise is fraught with extreme dangers both for Israel itself and for the peace and stability of the entire region. [emphasis mine]

Indeed, whether providing moral sanction to the UK riots or glorifying Palestinian violence, the Guardian has repeatedly demonstrated that they can’t be bothered with such quotidian concerns as the real world consequences of their positions.

Here are a few images from the Guardian’s glorious Palestinian campaign for statehood, as seen on their Israel page.


The last photo, accompanying a pro-Palestinian statehood commentary at CiF, likely is just a reminder, for the really dense, of who precisely are the people standing in the way of the Palestinians’ quest for freedom and justice.
