Hamas Hugging Smalley gets spanked by BSA for inaccuracy

Who is the 'serious' journalist now eh Rachel?

Who is the ‘serious’ journalist now eh Rachel?

Hamas Hugging Rachel Smalley has been spanked by the Broadcasting Standards Authority for making up claims about Israel in her mad rant on her show earlier in the year.

During KPMG Early Edition, the host read out an opinion piece criticising Israel’s actions in the Israel-Hamas conflict. She referred to a recent bombing of a UN school which ‘killed everyone inside’. The Authority upheld the complaint that this was inaccurate, as in fact 16 out of 3,300 people sheltering in the school were killed. It did not uphold the complaint other statements were inaccurate, as they were clearly the host’s opinion. The Authority did not make any order, as publication of this decision is sufficient to correct the error.

Upheld: Accuracy

[…]

[11]  The third statement however, and specifically the host’s assertion that the bombing of the UN school ‘killed every civilian inside’, was in our view a material point of fact. Unlike her other statements, this claim related to a specific incident and was capable of being assessed as factually accurate or inaccurate.   Read more »

Auckland University goon squad defends Hamas

 

Yesterday the Auckland University goon squad were out in force  dribs and drabs protesting against Hamas..oh….I mean Israel. It did make me wonder though, as one of their chants were “Boycott genocide”. Juliet Moses confronted the rowdy teenagers and tried engage some sensible dialogue with their adult supervisor and enlighten them to a few facts about Hamas, only to be shouted down with petulant behaviour, abuse and more chanting because they didn’t like what she had to say to them. It just goes to show one thing from ‘that side’, that freedom of speech is tolerated, as long as it’s theirs.

Billy Hania the adult representing the rowdy toddlers blurted out a  delusional rant which stated that all the killing was a result of the Super Fund and other companies. It has been alleged that an Israeli chemical company that the Superannuation Fund invests in is “killing people” with white phosphorus. The trouble with that is, the IDF haven’t used it since 2009 and it is only used for smokescreens because its use as a weapon is now illegal.

Even David Shearer doesn’t know what’s going on, as is evident in his comment:

Labour defence spokesman David Shearer, who worked for the UN in some of the conflict zones where white phosphorus was allegedly used, this month called for the fund to sell its Israel Chemicals stake.

“We should be divesting from that [shareholding] immediately,” he said.

“New Zealand should not be investing in any type of munitions that can be used in the way Israel is using them at the moment.

“It is absolutely unacceptable and I think most New Zealanders would agree. I don’t believe it is right.

“There are plenty of good investments in the world without having to invest in armaments.” – source

A Maori woman stands with Israel

A fine speech by Sheree Trotter.

Sheree Trotter is the interviewer and researcher for Shadows of Shoah. She is a Maori New Zealander. On August 10 2014 a rally was held in central Auckland, NZ, to affirm Israel’s right to exist, her right to defend herself against Hamas’ aggression, and to respond to the worldwide surge of antisemitic expression. The event was attended by about 800 supporters. Sheree was invited to give a speech.

Are First Union membership fees funding anti Semitism?

cunt

 

“New Zealand does have to have a stronger line, and make…absolutely say that what’s happening in Gaza is just beyond the pale. I mean, 1500 people dead already, 9000 injured, people locked in as David Shearer said, basically an open air prison and just being bombed every day of the week since this campaign’s been on. New Zealand has to step up and say more and part of saying more is to get over this thing about saying on one hand Israel, on one hand Hamas, the brutality, the war crimes that are happening are happening from the Israeli side and Israel has to be made to account for what is happening”

Jon Voight takes on F.A.G.

Jon Voight is standing up to the Hollywood luvvies who have signed an letter denouncing Israel.

He tells a few home truths…I wonder if his daughter, Angelina Jolie, will take pause to read what her father has written.

From Hollywood Reporter:

My name is Jon Voight and I am more than angry, I am heartsick that people like Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem could incite anti-Semitism all over the world and are oblivious to the damage they have caused.

They are obviously ignorant of the whole story of Israel’s birth, when in 1948 the Jewish people were offered by the UN a portion of the land originally set aside for them in 1921, and the Arab Palestinians were offered the other half. The Arabs rejected the offer, and the Jews accepted, only to be attacked by five surrounding Arab countries committed to driving them into the sea. But the Israelis won. The Arabs tried it again in 1967, and again in 1973, launching a sneak attack on the holiest Jewish holiday. Each time the Jews prevailed but not without great loss of life.  And when Israel was not fighting a major war, it was defending itself against terrorist campaigns.   Read more »

A reader asks – Why do people hate Israel?

A reader emailed this last night:

Hi Cameron and the Whale Oil team,

I’ve been thinking about the more hardcore vocal supporters of Hamas here in NZ, well by default they support Hamas in that they oppose Israel. The likes of John Minto, Phil Goff, etc. The majority are what we would call left wing (if not communist in leaning).

Why do they oppose Israel?

It can’t be for a feeling of a philosophical kinship with the Arabs who after all, are in general; religious, subjugate women, and have a hierarchical society with vast wealth and power at one end of society and poverty and powerlessness at the other, and no intent of changing.  Seemingly nothing in common.

Could it be that they object to Israel being a democracy in a region of monarchies and dictatorships? Surely not, they must condone all having the vote and the right to participate. Although I haven’t seen John Minto and company campaigning to give Saudi women the vote prior to the upcoming 2015 election or indeed allow them to drive.

Do they object that Israel exists? It was created by the UN in the late 40s and as the objectors all seem to implore the UN to act whenever Israel defends itself, then they must accept the UN’s authority ergo the original mandate of Israel’s right to exist. Or perhaps not, as many of the objectors seem to want the ability to have their cake and eat it. Read more »

Moderator statement to readers

Something that needs to be addressed is the matter of off topic commentary on posts of a particular subject. The subject that I am referring to is of course the Gaza conflict. Having to make this statement gives me the feeling of a patronizing teacher and I don’t like it, but it has to be done.

I have spent many hours collecting information, data and statements for past, current and future posts on the conflict. All of this work is done in my own time, late at night and very early in the morning so I can bring you the other side of the story that the mainstream media aren’t showing us.

I am not paid to do this. I do it on a voluntary basis out of passion and a service to balance media and the Jewish and Israeli community in New Zealand and overseas who are being alienated, so that readers who come here can get the other side of the story. Read more »

Does Phil Goff have the Hamas Interior Ministry on speed dial?

Flabbergasting is the best way to describe Phil Goff’s latest statement on facebook after he opened his cranium and spilled its rotten contents all over social media. The self styled diplomat of Foreign Affairs  Middle East Hamas Interior Ministry spokesman of New Zealand  made a statement with an obvious anti Israeli slant that was riddled with inaccuracies and misinformation. The obvious ignorance of human rights abuses by Palestinians Gaza Arabs themselves is astounding, and is a continuation of the mindless repeating of people who read the *NEWS*.

 PALESTINIAN PRESIDENT YASSER ARAFAT WALKS WITH THE NEW ZEALAND FOREIGN MINISTER PHIL GOFF AT HIS OFFICE IN THE WEST BANK CITY OF RAMALLAH

Goff’s goofy statement is not something I can let by without it being addressed, and for a Labour politician to take on the stance of such commentary around the conflict is idiotic, there goes the Israeli/Jewish vote for this election. Congratulations.

The following is the statement of Yasser Arafat’s hand in hand partner on facebook taken to pieces to reveal the shrouded bias: Read more »

Hamas Hugger Rachel Smalley is dead wrong

Rachel Smalley is now a self declared Hamas Hugger.

She shows her complete ignorance this morning on NewstalkZB, and she cannot go unchallenged for her mad ranting.

She self describes herself as “the serious Journalist”…but ignores facts and evidence as she joins the jihad against Israel.

I can’t sit on the political fence anymore on the Israel-Palestine situation. It has always been a difficult conflict to report on, to balance the position of both sides. There is no place for judgement.

Well, not anymore. Not for me.

I can’t report the situation in Gaza with balance anymore because there simply is none. Israel’s actions are abhorrent. The killing, the targeting of civilians, the toddlers and the babies who are dying every day. It reveals the Israeli regime for what it is – a callus anti-Palestinian killing machine.

Israel’s conflict should be with Hamas, but it’s not. It’s with the Palestinians. Almost two million people who live in the Gaza Strip, entrapped and caged in an area that is 40 kilometres long by ten kilometres wide. The bombardment of Gaza is akin to caged lion hunting in South Africa. There is no escape – only terror as bombs and bullets rain down.

The Israelis say they ‘regret’ when a civilian is killed. Rubbish! They regret nothing. They put no value on a Palestinian life.

Mad ranting, and largely fact free…she then lies outright. Israel does not target civilians, Hamas uses civilians as human shields. It is Hamas that puts no value on Palestinian life.

In fact watch this video as Israeli pilots pull out of attacks because civilians are in the vicinity. Now who is right Rachel Smalley or me? Rachel Smalley the “serious journalist” or Israel?

Hamas used ceasefire to execute 25 Gazan civilians and blame Israel

There is no limit to the depravity of Hamas, and it disgusts me that our media continues to cuddle these terrorists and they wreak self-inflicted destruction on their people.

If they aren’t putting children into the tunnels to die they are executing their own people and trying to blame the Israelis.

Hamas militants killed at least 25 Gazan civilians suspected of collaborating with Israel, World Net Daily reported, citing sources close to Hamas and the Islamic Jihad groups.

The sources told WND that most of the extra-judicial killings of suspected collaborators took place during a brief “humanitarian” cease-fire last Thursday. Hamas blamed the killings on Israel saying they took place four days earlier, in Shuja’iya, on Gaza’s northern border with Israel.

The murdered Gazans were accused of leading Israeli troops to smuggling tunnels and providing intelligence on Hamas’ infrastructure inside Gazan cities, according to the sources.

According to WND, the sources also said “the civilian suspects murdered by Hamas were publicly celebrated by Hamas as martyrs killed by the Jewish state.”  Read more »
