Is Israel The Center Of The Universe?
If you turn on the Canadian news, listen to the radio, or read the newspapers you would swear Israel is the center of the universe. The public needs to utilize critical media literacy and ask why is the international news so myopic? Thank goodness for the internet. I don’t subscribe to what the mainstream press reports. Judaism is not a race it is just a religion.
Yes, I’ve read about the suicide bombers but I’ve also learned about the Israeli government shooting and murdering innocent Palestinians. After all Palestinian lives aren’t that important and rarely grace the front pages of western newspapers. Don’t people wonder why this occurs?
What is so special about Israel anyway besides the obvious political reasons? The occidental media make it appear as though there is this urgency to reporting about Israel as though Israel is the only hot spot with tension on the entire planet. I think I”m having Middle East fatigue. I want to know more beneath the surface besides the information the occidental media wants the public to believe. The public is supposed to believe the white Jews in Israel are perfect and the Palestinians are bad people but life isn’t always so clear cut.
It is also interesting that the white Jews in Israel and the white North American Jews conveniently play with the issue of race. The white Jews utilize their whiteness and white skin privilege to their advantage when they need to. For instance, in North America the white Jews like to play the victim with a facade of invisible minority status. Its like give me a break. The white Jews in Israel and North America have white majority status they are not victims they are the oppressors.
The American and Canadian governments obviously believe Israel is in their sphere of influence. However, what about the internal politics in Israel? I doubt CBC television or the Canadian newspapers report much about the pernicious racism against the black Jews and Palestinians in Israel. Israel is similar to South Africa during the apartheid era the Palestinians have to cross check points and provide identification cards. Israel is no paradise for people that aren’t white Jews that’s for sure. Why doesn’t the media report about the racism inside Israel? Why is there this invisible code to racism? The Occident acts as though the white Israelis do not discriminate and they are perpetuating this total double standard.
You see in the Occidental world media anyone that dares to challenge the Israeli government about their state sanctioned racism is called an Anti Semite. And what about the white Israelis being anti black? I guess you won’t read articles about that in the newspapers or on the news. Of course, the media never challenges the Israeli white majority about their pernicious anti Arab and anti black racism. I doubt you would hear about this on the six o clock news.
