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.

    Israel is a nation.

    It’s the center of the universe because malicious people in the media are obsessed with her and the Arabs.

    Why are you writing about it?

  2. Kandee says :

    Israeli politics is a very sensitive issue because of the history of the state and the current political position it is in. Yes, it is not widely publicized in North America that there are various racial groups of the Jewish faith, and because of historical acts of violence and genocide against those of the faith, criticism of the nature in which you describe is discouraged and avoided. I grew up practicing the Jewish faith (but I am no longer religious) and it was very difficult for me to convince people of my faith because they could not get past my race. I agree that questioning a states’ foreign and domestic policy is not in any way connected to its religion or race composite. However, no other Middle Eastern country has neighbours who want to wipe them off the face of the map, so it’s understandable why there are limits to the discussion. Perhaps when peace is made, then the discussion of racism within the state can begin.

    People like you turn Israel to be the center of the world. See this article for example. Leave Israel alone with its Arab problem and they’ll solve the matter.

    Judaism is nationality and religion at the same people. You’re right, it has nothing to do with race or color.

    Israel doesn’t “shoot murder innocent Palestinians” but Arab Palestinian terrorists. It’s not Israel’s moral problem if the Arabs use their “kids” in terror missions. Don’t you think you have to demand the Arab mothers a decent answer to the question why they joyfully sending their kids to make suicide?

    Israel is the center of the Judeo-Christian real believers.

    Yes its great to hear yet another one sided view against Israel.

    “I’ve read about the suicide bombers but I’ve also learned about the Israeli government shooting and murdering innocent Palestinians”

    Israel goes to great lengths to avoid civilian deaths and the Palestinians go to great lengths to cause civilian deaths both in their lands and the land of Israel.

    “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.”

    The world media in general has a bias against Israel so I don’t know where you get this idea from. An example of this was after the recent murders in a Jewish religious school the photo in the paper was not of Israelis mourning their dead children, but a picture of the terrorists young daughter looking sad whilst holding a photo of her father. I mean what is that???

    “The white Jews in Israel and North America have white majority status they are not victims they are the oppressors”

    Majority/ opressors?? this is not even woth responding to.

    “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”

    Israel is nothing like the apartheid South Africa. It is obvious that free movement of the radicals into Israeli territory would lead to countless thousands of murders of Israeli civilians. The fact that Israel goes to such lengths to try to filter out the good people under these circumstances should be commended but instead all we hear about is the new apartheid.

    “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”

    Israel is not perfect and many in Israel will dislike Arabs but even you would know that in the Palestinian territories all schools lecture hatred for Jews and Israel to their students from the earliest years onwards. In Israel the reverse does not happen.

    I wish people like you would take a hard look at the facts and be neutral if not pro Israel and yes once in a while turn your attention to other parts of the world such as the Sudan where real human rights abuse is standard practice.

    Black and Gay?
    Is this some kind of religious, ethnic or ideological designation? Why is this advertized identification necessary?
    Do the above go with left wing and anti-Israeli (anti-Semitic?) views?
    The opening question suggests a great deal of ignorance.

  6. Ari says :

    Trust me Palestinians are WAY more anti black then white Israelis could ever be.

  7. Carl Childs says :

    Have you been living in a cave for the past 20 years? Oictures ao Arabs are all the newsprint in the western world!

  8. S Martin says :

    I am a U.S. citizen. It sickens me that our President is clearly
    not for Israel. I am a christian and you are his favored
    people by God in our religion. We have always been with
    you. Most of our news media is in bed with the left in our
    country. We pray for you everyday. Most of us know the
    truth by the few fair news outlets. May God continue to
    protect you and bless you. They monitor the internet now.
    It is dangerous to stand up for Israel in public.
