27/05/08 “ICH” — – From time to time I receive from my friends in the Middle East, horrific photographs of the atrocities perpetrated on the Palestinians by the IDF. (Israel Defence Force)
Apparently these photographs are never ever distributed in the western media; they are in fact, censored.
Additionally, any essays or discussions about the Israel/Palestinian situation also never see the light of day in the Western media.
Why is that?
There are on the Internet at least, some articles about the Israel Lobby, and even books and articles appear in the mainstream press, most notably the writings of John Mearsheimer and Stephen Walt. And there is the book by the former President of the United States, Jimmy Carter, with his book, “Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid,” which was fiercely attacked by the foot soldiers of the Israel Lobby.
Witness also the vociferous ongoing war of words between Alan Dershowitz and Norman Finkelstein, which has resulted in Professor Finkelstein not being offered tenure at the DePaul University. While I was checking the spelling of his name I came across this breaking news.
