Example text

Here, for instance, is a paragraph from a commentary written by Ronny Shaked, published on page 9 of the March 31 issue, under the headline: “This is Not the Way to Vanquish the Palestinians”: True, even without the defeat of Ramallah and the siege on Arafat, the Palestinians would have continued their infernal attacks. But yesterday’s attack in Tel Aviv, as well as the one in Jerusalem on Friday, are directly connected to Ramallah. They prove that the IDF – with its military superiority, its technology and trained soldiers – can easily move into the cities of the West Bank, but it cannot defeat the Palestinians and it certainly cannot do away with terror.

Such a massacre did not take place. ” When it finally emerged that no such massacre had occurred, Israel gained a few significant points in the propaganda war: it now had “evidence” of the overall falsity of Palestinian reports. Needless to say, the entire Israeli media immediately rejected the massacre accusations. But this fact by no means exhausts the discussion about the way they covered the Jenin events. The significant point is that they concentrated, almost without exception, on the accusations themselves, on the very fact that Israel was being accused – even after it became clear that other Palestinian claims, severe in their own right, were much more accurate than those concerning a possible massacre.

In one of them, residents of the refugee camp are interviewed. The headline reads: “We Will Teach the Children to Hate Jews Even More”. The other article is titled: “The Plan that was Stopped: IDF Cooler Vans were Already Stationed on the Camp’s Outskirts”. The importance of this article cannot be overestimated, even if only to prove, yet again, that on-the-ground, independent reporting is simply indispensable. The Palestinians saw these vans and claimed that the IDF intended to “clean up” the area and bury the dead before the international press was allowed into the camp.
