From the New York Times featured headliner in yesterday’s paper: NYT states that it (the latest deaths) started when Israel fired back.  NYT claims Israel “ignited” the violence by responding to Palestinians’ terror attacks.  Also, the NY Times purposely chose an emotive image of a Palestinian child’s funeral, particularly as Israel was also burying its dead as a result of a terror attack.

This morning, I felt challenged.  It’s hard to be complacent when there is a war against the good in this world.  The way we see it, here, on this corporeal existence, can be seen through the kaleidoscope of the NYT or other news media as good versus evil, almost like a movie, but it’s real.  Here, the truths and consequences are distorted in some brainwashed conspiracy to accept the violation of basic human rights to live and breathe in the form of apathy.  We as mere puppets in this game of weaving truths against untruths play the biggest part of all.  We have become that of which he hate.  We have become intolerant, ignorant, inpatient, and willing to let the media’s bias take a stranglehold of our consciousness and let them play it all out with words and pictures.  This society has become stupid.  We are letting others teach us about intolerance, bigotry, anti-Semitism, and hate to form our subconsciousness, and our conscience decisions without even thinking we are doing so.  Judgment in the confluence (a flowing together) that it is, is left to a priori (involving deductive reasoning from the general principle to a necessary fact, not supported by fact) that manifests itself as profound sublimation (divert expression to a more social or culturally accepted form) than it is to make our own judgments based on our own knowledge of facts and truth instead of the above mentioned prevarication (to shift or turn direct speech or behavior; to evade the truth; to be intentionally ambiguous).  Which means, friends, that we need to educate ourselves and not be the media wherewithal they so desperately want us to be.

To the NYT:

I’m remembering a time, this decade, when there was a terrorist attack on a bus in Israel were there were multiple deaths and injuries.  As I was watching in horror, a cameraman from a major US network panned over to the attempts of paramedics trying to revive a Jewish infant in the ambulance via CPR, to no avail.  As soon as the scope of the horror of such atrocity was evident , the cameraman panned away immediately. The image was never seen again.

As you show the dead infant in the man’s arms, as horrible as it is, no matter who they are, why are we not also reminded of the death of other human beings on Israel’s side? Has the NYT actually become the apathetic machine who scores indifference to the general media when it comes to Israeli deaths, infants or adults?  Is there no questioning as to why such bias and condemning behavior in the name of human lives of the existential threat of reality that Israel must live in day-to-day terror no NYT employee would dare live through, in as much as they and their children (and I say children because they are the product of this hypocrisy through which their parents are teaching) sit pretty and comfortable in their cushy chairs of hypocrisy on the other side of the world?  Indeed, there is something really wrong here.

Gloss over as much as you like NYT, the truth will not be suppressed by your conscience indignation of willingness to be a form of anti-Semitic propaganda to the world.  Take a history lesson and see that it is the evil of Islāmic  doctrine that will never cease to try to destroy the Jews, whether or not Israel gives up what it is that you want them to give up. Peace will not or
does not occur within evil.   You will see that history and facts are on the side of Israel, whether through the UN or others, that you negate to mention in your articles.

A challenge, if you dare, live among the Palestinians, be their proctor from within the Gaza strip or Ramallah and see if you will survive without the help of Israel.  I dare the NYT to live there and report from there and see how well your untruths will reveal themselves.  Or maybe too afraid to live among them, why I wonder?
