RIGHTS vs. SECURITY IN WEST BANK
Critics Say Deportations Of Palestinian Suspects Violate Due Process. Israel Says A Balance Has Been Reached Between Safety And Freedom
PLO Terrorists Are The Victims At The LA Times
The terrorists are the victims at the LA Times. In "Rights vs. Security In West Bank" we are subjected to another round of biased talk of "human rights", where only the PLO criminals who plan and prepare suicide bombings have rights but their victims do not. At least that's the impression this article leaves (4/11/04, p.4 - read TEXT).
The Ajouris, accomplices to terror according to Israel (read IDF decree), in this case the sister, Intisar, are a pet project of the LA Times, being members of the PLO group Al Aqsa. Tracy Wilkinson was keen on following their progress. When they were deported, she wrote how Israel had dropped them in the remote "Gaza wilderness". see Watch Sep 5, '02 They appeared again later in a long article on an Israeli-Arab reporter. The LA Times had not a word for the 6 Israeli dead and 40 wounded in the July 17, 2002, Tel Aviv suicide bombings, one of them by her brother Ali Ajouri. see CBS report This article is worth reading as another prime example of the biased use of so-called "human rights" organizations.

A RISKY EMBRACE OF SHARON
LA Times Unable To Countenance Support For Israel:
US support for Israel is problematic for the LA Times. Like the rest of the anti-Israel media, their imaginery "peace process" is based on total Israeli capitulation and zero Arab concessions. In an Editorial entitled "A Risky Embrace Of Sharon", the LA Times criticizes Bush's support for Israel's plan to retain certain areas of "the West Bank" having large Israeli populations (4/15/04, p. B14 - read TEXT):
LA Times reporting and Editorials have consistently overlooked the centrality of terrorism to the solution. PLO terrorism against Israel preceded the '67 War and unless defeated will negate any possibility of peace. Their Editorials typically concentrate on Israel's responsibilities and pay lip service to the Arab responsibility to eliminate terrorism. This Editorial is consistent with that trend. At the end, this is all they have to say about ongoing PLO terror:
In a notable anomaly, this Editorial presents a deceptively softer line than LA Times ongoing reporting suggests, actually supporting President Bush's rejection of the Palestinians' demand for "a right of return":
Anyone following LA Times reporting over time knows they publish articles promoting Arab claims even to parts of Israel within the '67 borders. see eg Watch Feb 2 '03 We are not fooled. Please call 1-800-252-9141 to cancel your LA Times.

DOCTOR, STRATEGIST, LEADER, TARGET
Educated In Egypt, Abdelaziz Rantisi Was An Intellectual Force In The Hamas Movement
Assassinating The Truth Is An LA Times Trademark
Coverage of Israel's justified and overdue killing of arch-terrorist Abdelaziz Rantisi was, as expected, overdone and pro-Hamas. Just calling Hamas a "militant" group is distortion enough for a group the US has officially classified as a terrorist organization. But Rantisi was a "leader", not a terrorist, in the view of the LA Times. Their calling him a "political" and "intellectual" figure, and Israel's killing him an "assassination", is an assassination of the truth.
Two days of intensive coverage on Sunday April 18 and Monday April 19 sought to present an image of a man of stature and esteem as opposed to a mass murderer and terrorist. On Sunday it was "Doctor, Strategist, Leader, Target" anything but the truth (4/19/04, p. 9 - read TEXT). Apparently his practice of pediatrics was either very limited or non-existant; he preferred killing children instead.
A brief reference to Hamas' responsibility for "hundreds of Israeli deaths during 42 months of violence" is all the LA Times could muster on the subject of responsibility for the many horrendous acts of murder and mayhem against Israeli civilians that Rantisi "strategized". In the LA Times view, Rantisi was the leader, but Hamas was responsible for the deaths. Anything more is just an Israeli claim. This LA Times coverage was a whitewash of the real Rantisi and his role in war crimes. To get an accurate picture you have to seek more trustworthy sources. see eg 'UN vs. Israel'
In "Israel Kills Hamas Leader" (4/18/04, front page, 10 - read TEXT) and Monday April 20's extra "Throngs Mourn Hamas Leader" (4/18/04, front page, 10 - read TEXT), the LA Times pays unnecessary further homage to him. They use another familiar tactic, that of loudly and repeatedly transmitting Hamas threats through their columns, that when read in total, suggest encouragement of Hamas rather than mere reporting of it. For a full list of these two days coverage - click here
In the war against terrorism, words are weapons, and judged on that basis, Hamas and the LA Times are allies. "Assassination" is the terrorists' choice of word, a word the LA Times cannot seem to repeat enough. This hypocritical paper and much of the Western media used the word "killing" in describing the deaths of Sadam Hussein's sons, Uday and Qusei, who were genuine leaders of Iraq. If their deaths were not assassinations then neither was Rantisi's. Rantisi was a combatant in a war of his choice with Israel. He is to be judged by the rules of war not by the rules of LA Times bias and hypocrisy. Israel was justified in killing him in self-defense.
It was of course, predictable that coverage of this killing would mirror coverage on the killing of arch-terrorist Yassin two weeks ago. That does not remove the disgust supporters of Israel should feel for this "newspaper". see 'Yassin' letter

SHARON TO BUSH: ARAFAT A TARGET
The Premier Says Israel Will No Longer Refrain From Harming Him. The Remarks Could Be A Bid To Win A Party Vote On His Gaza Pullout Plan
More Anti-Israel Politics of "Assassination" From The LA Times
The politics of the word "assassination" are in evidence in this classic piece of anti-Israel propaganda from Laura King. (4/24/05, "Sharon To Bush: Arafat A Target", front page, 10 - read TEXT) It's clear she seeks to hammer Israel over the head with this monumentally inappropriate and hypocritical word at every possible opportunity:
Have you seen the LA Times write,
"the US is assassinating Al Qaeda leaders it holds
responsible for terrorist attacks"? We haven't.
Did President Bush actually use the
word "assassination"? We doubt it.
Israel calls them terrorists. The LA
Times substituting the word "militant" is a
blatant misstatement of the truth.
"Millions" of Palestinians
refugees! There are believed to have been approximately
650,000 by accurate historical counts, less than the
number of Jewish refugees expelled from Arab countries. see How Many Refugees? (scroll
down) The refugees fled when Arab armies
attacked Israel after it declared Independence. In most
cases, the local Arab muftis and the invading armies
encouraged the refugees to leave. In any event,
"millions" is an irresponsible exaggeration.

BUSH MUST ANSWER SHARON
US Support For Israel Is "Startling" To The LA Times
It has turned out to be another busy month for JtB addressing just a part of the bias, inaccuracies, exaggerations, and political moves of the rampantly anti-Israel LA Times. In today's Editorial "Bush Must Answer Sharon" (4/27/04, p. B12 - read TEXT) the LA Times makes another classic anti-Israel anti-Sharon and pro-PLO statement on the subject of Sharon's recent threat against Arafat, leader of the PLO terrorist organization. We urge you to read this one if only to understand how thoroughly the LA Times inhabits the PLO universe, to the point of turning all logic on its head.
First, there is the element of smarting in this Editorial over the fact that the White House is supportive of Israel at all:
The LA Times finds it
"startling" that President Bush has supported
the notion of Israeli sovereignty over areas of "the
West Bank" (historically Judea and Samaria). But the
fact is, Israel was never required to return to former
1967 borders under any UN resolution. see Myths and Facts Online Even
President Clinton oversaw negotiations between former
Prime Minister Barak and Arafat that would have
acknowledged Israeli sovereignty over certain of these
What of Arafat's trully visceral
hatred of Sharon, Israel, and the Jewish people? His
bloodthirsty war crimes against Israeli men, women and
children? His indoctrination of Arab youth and incitement
to violence? Not only are these covered up, the LA Times
even makes a play for sympathy for the "aging,
Perhaps the most disingenuous part of this Editorial is its stated reasoning:
However, on the front page of
today's LA Times is the headline "Mosque Targeted In
Fallouja Fighting". Now if inflaming Moslem passions
was a genuine LA Times concern why would they print such
a headline? Isn't that a headline the enemies of America
would use? see comment

SHARON STRATEGY BACKFIRES
No Concept of Palestinian Responsibility at the LA Times
In today's LA Times Editorial "Sharon Strategy Backfires" (5/4/04, p. B12), you can find anti-settler, anti-Sharon, anti-Israel, and anti-Bush sentiments all rolled into one. "Sharon exacted a high diplomatic price from Bush in April for a pullout" they state in 'Merchant of Venice' fashion. They portray Sharon as having complete control of the process of negotiation. The Editorial as a whole gives the impression that the entire process is the sole responsibility of Israel. And, as usual, the LA Times principal concern is how the Arab world feels about the situation:
The Palestinian "right of
return" is a non-issue (there isn't one). Israel has
repeatedly rejected this notion outright and has made its
position an explicit part of the so-called Roadmap. see Israel's Reservations ("the
resolution of the issue of the refugees will not include
their entry into or settlement within the State of
Israel") As for "the West
Bank", Israel has never been required to withdraw
from all of the territory it won in 1967 under UN
Resolution 242. see Myths and Facts Online President
Bush's position has not differed in any way from any
other recent President in these matters.
There is no outrage for the
brutality of this war crime. Even the Human Rights group
Amnesty International, no friend of Israel's, has
condemned it. see AI The term
"Palestinian gunmen" is wholly inappropriate
for cold-blooded murderers of a woman and her small
children. The term is meant to sanitize their crime, even
glorify their act. To the LA Times, the act's only
significance is to show "how hazardous Gaza

SHARON MAY HAVE HELPED CREATE A MONSTER - ISRAEL'S SETTLER MOVEMENT
LA Times Demonizes The Settlers
After whitewashing the barbaric PLO terrorists who massacred Tali Hatuel and her four little girls see above and Israel Insider report the LA Times now turns to demonizing the settlers with a carefully chosen Op-Ed by Uri Avnery, a member of the fringe anti-government anti-settler group Gush Shalom. (5/5/04, p. B13 - read TEXT). Gush Shalom believes in capitulating to Arab demands to end the so-called "occupation" as the road to peace.
As you see from the headline the settler movement is called a "monster". But it gets worse than that. A highlighted quote states "Like the Golem of Jewish Legend, a peril has emerged that confronts its maker. Now the nation itself is endangered." Avnery's article fits into the LA Times ongoing efforts to demonize the settlers for asserting Jewish rights.
The most egregious error in this article is that it paints a false picture of the nature and meaning of the settler movement. Just as the LA Times has been doing for many years, Avenry wrongly portrays Ariel Sharon as director and steward of the settler movement without whom there would be no movement. Such is palpably untrue.
The movement to resettle parts of the Jewish homeland won back in the 67 war started with the Labor Government of Levi Eshkol and continued under the Labor Governments of Golda Meir and Yithak Rabin in the early '70s. see Myths and Facts Online It has continued and strengthened through the years under its own momentum. The return of Jewish residents to parts of Judea and Samaria previously made off-limits by hostile Arab regimes transcends any single person or personality. It is a movement of the Jewish people back to its roots. Portraying Sharon as controller of this movement shows how woefully inaccurate and misguided LA Times coverage of this dramatic and historic story is.

A Challenging Week For The US

TOLL MOUNTS AS ISRAEL PRESSES GAZA OFFENSIVE
How Low Does Journalism Go? Answer - The LA Times
The issue in Rafah is the ongoing PLO arms smuggling through tunnels. see Weapons Smuggling Tunnels in Rafah The Palestinians continue to choose the path of terrorism and war and Rafah tunnels are their major source of weaponry, including mortars, rockets, RPGs, etc. Rockets attacks on Israeli towns, Sderot, Ashkelon, etc., are constant. The Palestinians are trying to smuggle in Strela anti-aircraft missiles to be used against civilian airliners, according to Israeli Justice Minister Yosef Lapid. see JPost This is the reality that demands and justifies Israeli action in Rafah.
The LA Times however has little interest in the facts. They are on the PLO's side. Their coverage over the last few days, both written and in photo displays, has focused public attention almost exclusively on Palestinian suffering. To this point, it has failed to address the arms smuggling issue in any significant and journalistically responsible way. What coverage of arms smuggling there has been, has consisted of short statements starting "Israel says" or "the army said", thus reducing what Israel says to a mere claim. See for example Monday's "Palestinians Flee Israeli Army In Gaza" (5/18/04, p.3 - read TEXT) where all the LA Times had to offer on the issue was this:
That's it. Tuesday's "20 Killed
In Gaza Offensive" (5/19/04, p.3 - read TEXT) was
The responsibility for civilian casualties lies with the PLO terrorists who use them as shields. It is also possible that the source of the explosions which caused the harm were PLO roadside bombs. But this article assumes Israel is to blame and is laced with strongly worded attacks on Israel only, implying that Israel's move in Rafah is "unacceptable":
This, coming on the same day we in
the US unleashed our "intensive military
operations" on a group of Iraqis in an Iraqi
village, killing 40, five times the number allegedly
killed by Israeli action in Gaza. The LA Times report on
this incident was second to the Israeli story which was
the main front page headline. See "40 Killed In US
Attack On Iraqi Border Village" (5/20/04, front
page). The US claims that those killed were terrorist
arms smugglers, while the Iraqis claim they were
villagers celebrating a wedding. see FOX These are
remarkably similar circumstances. LA Times criticism of
Israel in this situation is contemptible hypocrisy and
should be roundly condemned.

GAZA PLAN NEEDS FRIENDS
Leave Gaza to the Egyptians Says the LA Times
From the LA Times' extensive dossier of futile suggestions comes "Gaza Plan Needs Friends". (5/27/04, p. B14- read TEXT) This latest Editorial suggests that the way for Israel to stop the arms smuggling is to leave Gaza to the Egyptians:
But the current arms smuggling is
taking place from Egyptian territory! The Egyptians have
not cooperated in stopping the smuggling depite Israel's
many requests to it to do so. The Egyptians are not
motivated to curb the activities of PLO terrorists. What
a disastrous idea it would be to give the Egyptians even
more control over the flow of arms.

LAST WORD IN ANTI-SEMITISM
The LA Times Has The Last Word - And The First - In Anti-Semitism
A devious piece of LA Times anti-semitism. Above an article identifying the act of calling Israel "Nazi" as anti-semitism, is an LA Times illustration doing just that, calling Israel "NAZI" in big block letters. see "NAZI" The "I" of the word "NAZI" spells out "Israel".
Why bring up this subject at all? It is not applicable to Israel in any way, shape or form. It certainly is relevant to the conduct of the PLO who murder Israel's Jewish civilians simply because they are Jewish. But just by bringing up the subject the LA Times plants the idea in the public mind. If there was any justification for an article on this subject there certainly was none for the illustration. It does not add to our understanding of the matter. To the contrary, instead of illustrating the anti-semitism of using the Nazi epithet against Israel, it actually hurls the epithet in our face.
The article itself, "Last Word In Anti-Semitism", is a pro-Israel Op-Ed piece by Walter Reich which analyses the reasons certain people throw the "Nazi" epithet at Israel, and aks us to "understand" that such behavior is an anti-semitic attack on Israel. (5/28/04, p. B15- read TEXT) A point that hardly needs to be expounded. It is unfortunate too that Mr. Reich fails to take the opportunity to clearly condemn the practice as well as "understand" it.
It is also unfortunate that the LA Times has exploited Mr. Reich's meritorious piece for its own ends. This presentation viewed as a whole, is a very cunning form of anti-semitism. JtB condemns the LA Times for its anti-semitism. Coming at a time when we in the US are taking far stronger action with much greater consequence for loss of Iraqi lives, it is consummate hypocrisy for the LA Times to be throwing this extremely offensive slander at Israel.

LA Times Lies Low After "NAZI" Ruckus
No sooner had the sun set on former President Reagan's funeral than the LA Times was back to attacking Israel's security barrier with a picture presentation (Saturday, 6/12/04, p.3) entitled "Anti-Barrier Bloc". The picture allegedly shows Palestinians using a cement divider to protest against the barrier. Overall however, LA Times reporting on Israel has been relatively subdued since the ruckus caused by its May 28 presentation in which it called Israel "NAZI" in big block letters. see "NAZI" and above May 28 It appears the protest of the LA Times coupled with an outpouring of anger in the direction of its principal advertiser, Macy's, has at least had a temporary effect. see e.g. letters of protest - to LA Times, to Macy's
However, this is not a time to be complacent. The lull will likely end soon. It is a time to reinforce the message that supporters of Israel will not buy anti-Israel propaganda masquerading as news.

RADICALS KILL AMERICAN IN SAUDI ARABIA
Is "Radicals" or "Militants" A Suitable Word To Describe The Murderers Of Paul Johnson?
The LA Times front page article "Radicals Kill American in Saudi Arabia" is a report on the latest act of barbarism of the Islamic fanatics of Al Qaeda, the tragic beheading of US worker Paul Johnson (6/19/04, front page, 5 - read TEXT). While some LA Times reporting on the war against Al Qaeda has used the terms "terror", "terrorism" and "terrorists", it has mostly used the pro-terrorist word "militants" in a manner similar to its reporting on Israel. Today's headline is weak, calling the terrorists "radicals" and omitting the word "beheading", and the text of the article refers to them as "militants". Overall, the outrage over this atrocity is understated giving the impression the LA Times is protecting the terrorists from the real fury of the American public. In addition, a prominent article on the Abu Ghraib scandal was inserted directly under this article to imply a linkage (and equivalence) between the two incidents. Perhaps the LA Times forgot that the beheading of the first such victim, Daniel Pearl, occurred long before Abu Ghraib.
Is "radicals" or "militants" a suitable word to describe the murderers of Paul Johnson, Nick Berg, and Daniel Pearl? The LA Times thinks so. We think not.

ISRAELI SOLDIERS' PHOTOS SHOW ANIMOSITY ALL AROUND IN HEBRON
An Exhibition That Includes Allegations Of Improper Conduct Sparks Controversy
LA Times Shows The Depth Of Its Animosity Towards Israel
While the title claims to report on animosity "all around" in Hebron, the vast majority of this nasty anti-Israel piece, about a politically charged photo exhibition, is devoted to accusing Israeli soldiers of mistreating Arabs. (6/20/04, p. 3 - read TEXT). It is just another creative attack on Israel questioning the "moral dimension of serving in the West Bank and Gaza Strip". We recommend reading this one simply because of the blatancy of its bias. Here's just a taste:
Far from showing Israeli animosity
in Hebron this piece shows the depths of LA Times
animosity towards Israel. There is no attempt to present
Israel's side of the story in any of these alleged
incidents. Note the reference to "gas chambers"
- another anti-semitic attempt to smear Israel with the
"NAZI" label. see LA Times Calls Israel
"NAZI" Added to this highly
inflammatory and one-sided diatribe is a picture showing
some of the exhibited photographs, carefully selected and
framed to further inflame anti-Israel passions. As a
token afterthought there is a single paragraph on Arab
violence recalling the murder of 10 month old Shalhevet
Pass in 2001 and the 1929 Arab massacre of Hebron's
Jewish residents. Other than that, the article is
outright character assassination and an attempt to
undermine Israeli resolve.

LOS ANGELES TIMES CUTS ABOUT 160 JOBS
The Move Which Affects Both Business And Editorial Operations Follows Lower Than Expected Ad Revenues
On Job Cuts....
"Los Angeles Times Cuts About 160 Jobs" looks to be an attempt at damage control. It was in today's Business Section of the paper and was authored by "a Times Staff Writer" (6/22/04, p. C2 - read TEXT). It informs us that about 60 reporting jobs and about 100 business operations jobs will be lost. It does not elaborate on the reason for the cuts, the "lower than expected ad revenues". Since news of the cuts had already reached the media (see Ad Revenue Shortfall), the LA Times may have decided that announcing these details was the best way to avoid damaging speculation by others.

COMMENCE BY TALKING
UCI Students Bore Same Phrase As That Glorifying The Beheaders of Kim Sun-il
This LA Times Editorial discusses the UC Irvine graduation controversy in which Moslem students wore green sashes honoring suicide bombers (6/23/04, page B13 - read TEXT). It is the third time the LA Times has reported on this subject. We commented on the two previous times on June 20 above. In all three articles the LA Times omitted the CORE ISSUE that the phrase on the sashes contains the word "Shehada", the word used for suicide bomber.
As the Editorial points out, the phrase does have a religious meaning "there is no G-D but Allah, and Muhammad is his messenger". However, there was no specific reason to bear this phrase at the graduation other than to make a political statement. That statement is one of identification with the most radically violent elements of Islamic terrorism.
That identification of the students with violent terrorism came dramatically into focus today. The phrase the students wore on their sashes is the same phrase as the one on the flag in the picture of the terrorists about to behead Korean, Kim Sun-il - see the 13th paragraph of "South Korean Held In Iraq is Beheaded" (6/23/04, front page, 10 - read TEXT). That picture appeared on the front page of today's LA Times and in many other media outlets.
Yet this LA Times Editorial defends the sashes claiming "Only Muslims were called on to explain or defend their symbols, though students at the Irvine commencement commonly wear all manner of costumes and sashes, some with deep cultural meaning, others meant for a laugh."
Terrorism is not a laughing matter. It appears that radically violent Islamic terrorists and their supporters are using the "Shehada" phrase as their calling card and the LA Times is ignoring the connection. This Editorial is a whitewash.

Bias - An Equal Opportunity Offender
JtB has received several requests from politically directed groups for an exchange of links and is disposed to do so in order to publicize the bias debate. However, it is not our aim to involve ourselves in partisan politics. Consequently we have, as a general rule, declined such requests.
