Guardian Deliberately Fails to Correct Error

Guardian Deliberately Fails to Correct Error

Only yesterday, I caught Guardian correspondent Harriet Sherwood in yet another of her misguided and erroneous descriptions of the Western Wall as “the holiest site in Judaism”, while promoting the Palestinian narrative of Muslim hegemony over the Temple Mount – Judaism’s actual holiest site. I immediately sent an email to The Guardian’s reader’s editor demanding

Guardian’s Israel Correspondent Still Clueless

The Guardian’s Harriet Sherwood just keeps demonstrating her gross ignorance of the region that she is meant to be covering. In May we caught her mistakenly claiming that Israel’s Knesset and other national buildings were located on Palestinian-owned land. Prior to that, Sherwood was critiqued by HonestReporting for referring to the Western Wall as Judaism’s

A look at the full article on The Guardian website reveals that

It’s the Arms Smuggling, Stupid

The Guardian’s Harriet Sherwood had an exciting time with Gaza fishermen who regularly encounter the Israeli navy enforcing a three-mile limit.   Although The Guardian’s been-there done-that, you wouldn’t know it from any of her 46 tweets that Israel’s doing this because of Hamas weapons smuggling. They openly brag that they’re smuggling Grad missiles and

The Guardian Politicizes Mideast Peas

Food for thought: Falafel, those deep-fried chick peas served up with pita, tehina, and veggies at restaurants across the Mideast is not an Israeli creation. So why is The Guardian‘s Harriet Sherwood starting a food fight when McDonalds in Israel decided to drop “McFalafel” from its menu? Falafel is thought to have originated in Egypt, although Israel now
