If Not The Benjamins Then What?

We all have heard about the massive protests in Hong Kong…we are told it is about democracy and the media has given massive amounts of coverage into these protests.

IN the same time there are massive protests going on in Gaza and the West Bank and the media has given nothing as far as coverage…and by the way these are about democracy also.

Why is this?

Over the last weekend it is reported by the MSM that Hezbollah fired rockets into Northern Israel…..

Israel’s military said it fired into southern Lebanon on Sunday after a number of anti-tank missiles fired by Hezbollah targeted its army base and vehicles near the border. Hezbollah was responding to an earlier drone attack by Israel. 

The missiles hit several targets in Israel’s border town of Avivim on Sunday, the Israeli army said, adding it responded by shelling 100 targets inside Lebanon.

Israel, however, said the attack did not lead to any casualties on its side.

(AJE)

In the same time frame Palestinian protesters were shot and killed by Israel’s military and yet there is still NO coverage by the MSM.

Why is this?

Someone said that Israel has its hands everywhere in the US and that their dollars pay well for our politicians and others.

Of course that person was attacked as an anti-Semite even when NOTHING was said against the Jewish religion…..so I guess I will be labelled as such sense I will not bend over for Israel or any of their fingers of influence, which are many.

Why is this?

Why is one democracy movement more newsworthy than another?

Whys is one potential conflict more important than another?

If it is not about undue influence then why is not actual reporting more balanced?

The mainstream media is lying to the public and Americans are deluding themselves it they think it is anything other than influence and the “Benjamins”.

The MSM is always looking into the meat of any incident whether violence, or whatever….but they refuse to do so with Israel.

Why is this?

If they want to promote democracy then do so fairly…..until then maybe the MSM should take a good look at what they are and a news organization is not anywhere near that definition.

There was a time when Israel did not control our president or our Congress……

Representatives Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib as “anti-Semites” and for “hating Israel”—labels that Mr. Trump will likely apply to varying degree to Democrats during the 2020 campaign. 

Both Democratic congresswomen endorse boycotts, divestment, and sanctions—as well as UN censures of Israel—to support Palestinian rights. The American Israel Public Affairs Committee, among other interest groups, insists that BDS “intends to delegitimize” if not “destroy” Israel, and many politicians in Washington agree. 

Yet interestingly, Omar and Tlaib are echoing the Republican Party’s support of censures and repeated threats to apply economic sanctions against the Jewish state from the days of President Dwight Eisenhower. 

Eisenhower tightly controlled U.S. foreign policy and was pivotal to the UN Security Council’s censuring of Israel in November 1953, March 1955, and in January 1956. The reasons for each rebukes were similar, as they all involved what Eisenhower believed to be illegal aggression and violence against Israel’s Arab neighbors. 

When Eisenhower Republicans Censured Israel—Three Times

That is right……a US president that did not kiss the ring of the Israelis.

The smell of Benjamins.
