Who’s up for a quality Washington Post analysis?
We’re being silly, of course. There’s no such thing. But if you’re in search of hot garbage, the Washington Post has got you covered:
Analysis: Israel is committing the crime of apartheid, new report says https://t.co/adVkAqttT6
— The Washington Post (@washingtonpost) April 27, 2021
A new report by … notoriously anti-Israel outfit Human Rights Watch.
Ishan Tharoor writes:
Now, in invoking the crime of apartheid, Human Rights Watch hopes for far tougher international scrutiny of Israel. The report, among other things, calls for the creation of a U.N. commission to investigate systemic discrimination in Israel, asset freezes and sanctions on certain Israeli officials, and the conditioning of military and security assistance to Israel on the basis of its unwinding its policies that constitute “apartheid.”
Such action looks unlikely. For all the increasing partisan rancor in Washington over Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s right-wing government and its close dealings with former president Donald Trump, there’s little political will to shake up the Israeli-Palestinian status quo. Three-quarters of the U.S. House of Representatives, including a roughly even mix of Republicans and Democrats, recently signed a letter denouncing a proposed bill that would place additional regulations on U.S. aid to Israel.
But the conversation around Israel is clearly, if slowly, shifting in the United States. “This new HRW report raises critical concerns that should deeply trouble both supporters of Israel and those who care about Palestinian rights,” said Jeremy Ben-Ami, the president of J Street, a liberal pro-Israel advocacy organization in Washington that does not use the term “apartheid” to describe the Israeli context.
J Street, a liberal pro-Israel advocacy organization? Well, they’re liberal, that’s for sure. But there’s nothing pro-Israel about J Street. “Pro-BDS-and-Palestinian-terrorist advocacy group” is a much more accurate descriptor.
And having J Street in their corner is nothing for Human Rights Watch to be proud of.
And this “analysis” is nothing for the Washington Post to be proud of.
Why is the Washington Post publishing garbage from HRW? Seriously, google HRW. They are not a good nor honest organization. They are monomaniacal in their Israel obsession. How unprofessional, WashPo. Delighted I canceled my subscription with you three years ago. https://t.co/1bxTYzczdr

“Human Rights Watch doesn’t like Israel” isn’t really headline news. In fact it would actually be headline news if they said something that Israel that wasn’t negative. https://t.co/jqNfsDY91a

Well, and covering for John Kerry:
