Indy snapshot of Israeli-Palestinian Conflict: Israeli grave robbing and shooting kids

Indy readers interested in learning about the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict are informed that Israel destroys Muslim graves, shoots innocent Palestinian children, breaches Palestinian rights to development and violates the academic freedom of pro-Palestinian Britons.

Here’s what you see today at the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict page at The Independent.

In summary:

One article amplifies false Palestinian charges (see here) that Israel destroyed graves in a historic Muslim cemetery.

One article misleads readers (see here) into believing that Israeli soldiers shot – for no particular reason – an unarmed 13-year-old Palestinian girl.

One article cites a UN report which accuses Israel of breaching Palestinian rights to development.

One article is based on a claim by academics at London’s School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) that Israel violates academic freedom by unfairly turning away British lecturers (who are pro-Palestinian activists) at the border. 

One article reports on the IDF’s interception of a boat carrying pro-Palestinian female activists trying to break Israel’s naval blockade of Gaza.

So, Indy readers interested in learning about the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict are informed that Israel destroys Muslim graves, shoots innocent Palestinian children, breaches Palestinian rights to development and violates the academic freedom of pro-Palestinian Britons.

The only reasonably fair piece, on the IDF’s interception of a boat full of pro-Palestinian activists, is actually an article by Associated Press (AP) republished by the Indy.

Though this is only one day’s view of the Indy’s Israeli-Palestinian Conflict page, we’ve clearly demonstrated that this is indicative of a larger pattern of systemic bias against the Jewish state at the news site – one which we’ve been documenting for years.
