OBAMA SLAMMED FOR FAILING TO VISIT ISRAEL
‘Yet he’s had time to do more fundraisers than any other 1st-term president’

Former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton, a foreign policy adviser to Mitt Romney, took aim at Barack Obama today for not once visiting Israel during his nearly four-year presidency.

Romney is scheduled for a trip to the Holy Land next week as part of a larger international outreach that will also take him to Poland and England.

On “Aaron Klein Investigative Radio” on New York’s WABC Radio, Bolton contrasted Romney’s upcoming visit with Obama’s treatment of the Jewish state.

UPDATE – Fight Over BBC Olympic Coverage Intensifies

The BBC’s controversial decision to omit Israel’s capital of Jerusalem from the information on countries participating in the London Olympics has drawn a strong response from the Israeli government.

Government officials have sent several sharply-worded letters to the BBC demanding that it list Israel’s capital as it does for virtually every other country. It also launched a popular campaign on Facebook called Jerusalem is the Capital of Israel, inviting the public to join the effort. More than 16,000 already have.

CTV Defends Giving Band Airtime to Slur Israel as an “Apartheid” State

CTV Defends Giving Band Airtime to Slur Israel as an “Apartheid” State

CTV showed an unforgivable lack of judgement by praising, promoting, and providing a fringe anti-Israel band airtime to slur Israel as an “apartheid” state.

Dear HonestReporting Canada Subscribers,

We recently received complaints from our subscribers who were alarmed at the performance of a musical group called “Three Little Birds” who appeared on CTV Morning Live in Ottawa singing a rabidly anti-Israel song slurring Israel as an “apartheid” state.

Why Don’t Rocket Attacks Against Israel Get Headlines?

Why Don’t Rocket Attacks Against Israel Get Headlines?

Sderot, Ashkelon, Ashdod, Beersheba….All major southern Israel cities are again under a heavy rocket offensive from Hamas-controlled Gaza. There are Jewish dead, babies wounded, schools and synagogues destroyed, cities and towns terrorized. The latest wave of rockets took place only last week. But Israel as the most heavily bombed nation in the world never makes the headlines. Why?

BBC Olympic Coverage Declares East Jerusalem as Palestinian Capital

BBC Olympic Coverage Declares East Jerusalem as Palestinian Capital

The BBC Sport website’s coverage of the forthcoming London Olympic games features country profiles of all of the competing nations. Every other country profile includes a listed capital city.

Hanegraaff and Burge Bash Israel

“Hanegraaff and Burge both claim they are not anti-Israel or pro-Palestinian, but neutral in supporting peace and justice. Between being anti-Zionist, demonizing Israel, white-washing human rights abuses by Palestinian rulers in Gaza and the West Bank, and indoctrinating students to support Palestinian Arabs against Israelis, their claims of neutrality appear to be little more than posturing.”
