Breaking news CNN Israel fired all Jewish journalists |

The Israeli branch of CNN, located in Jerusalem, is downsizing and has fired four Israeli Jewish journalists (out of a crew of 8),
and has retained only Arab journalists.

Thus: the Israel news from CNN will be biased toward the Arab viewpoint.

It took 12 seconds to discern that the rumor that CNN fired its Jewish reporters is a lie.

I called CNN and asked to speak with the deputy bureau chief, Mike Schwartz, a colleague whom our agency respects and has worked with for more than 20 years.

He said: "Speaking".

My comment: "well Mike, how is your Islamic prayer rug?", to which he laughed and said that even his mother had also called him after hearing the rumor that CNN had fired its Jewish reporters.

I am the former CNN radio correspondent in Israel.

Our agency has conducted many critiques of CNN.

CNN is critical of Israel: not antisemitic.

The power of ZIONOIDS who spread rumors and do not do their homework is beyond belief.

The purpose of this document is to provide a practical guide for identifying incidents, collecting data, and supporting the implementation and enforcement of legislation dealing with antisemitism.

Working definition: “Antisemitism is a certain perception of Jews, which may be expressed as hatred toward Jews. Rhetorical and physical manifestations of antisemitism are directed toward Jewish or non-Jewish individuals and/or their property, toward Jewish community institutions and religious facilities.”

In addition, such manifestations could also target the state of Israel, conceived as a Jewish collectivity. Antisemitism frequently charges Jews with conspiring to harm humanity, and it is often used to blame Jews for “why things go wrong.” It is expressed in speech, writing, visual forms and action, and employs sinister stereotypes and negative character traits."

CNN's Chrisian Annapour "God's Warriors" is perceived as a hit piece on Israel. But when coupled with this from CAMERA:

" THIESSEN: Which is nothing like what the CIA did. Do you have any...

AMANPOUR: It is what the Israelis use, the waterboarding.

What the Israelis use?! Where did that come from?

What does it signify that when Amanpour was flustered by a guest strongly challenging her about the factual accuracy of dubious allegations regarding American conduct, her instinctive retort, under pressure, was to redirect the discussion towards Israel? Does she think that invoking Israeli misconduct will buttress her case? On what basis does she make the ludicrous charge that Israel engages in water torture akin to Pol Pot's regime that killed thousands of prisoners?

Her extreme accusations against America were countered by a knowledgeable voice. Her gratuitous smear of Israel — though only a passing swipe — was unchallenged.

deposits this representative from CNN into the anti Israel camp.

"reporting" an anecdotal which originates at the very source (CNN) being questioned is weak and suspect.

I will end with:

Thomas Friedman of The New York Times accurately put it, "Criticizing Israel is not anti-Semitic, and saying so is vile. But singling out Israel for opprobrium and international sanction -- out of all proportion to any other party in the Middle East -- is anti-Semitic, and not saying so is dishonest"
