Letter: On “Vegas Style Reporting Out of Israel”

Dear editor:

Bruce Ticker is correct. (Column: Vegas Style Reporting Out of Israel, boulderjewishnews.org, September 21, 2023.) We can’t rely on American newspapers to give us accurate information on Israel. But, in this Internet Age, we shouldn’t be relying solely on printed newspapers. There are numerous sites on the Web which report on current events in Israel and carry essays on various issues concerning Israel. I’ve listed some below:

1. CAMERA – Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting and Analysis

Mission | CAMERA

2. Honest Reporting| Exposing Anti-Israel Media Bias

About | Honest Reporting

3. FLAME – Facts and Logic About the Middle East

PR for Israel| Facts and Logic about the Middle East|FLAME

4. Gatestone Institute

In addition, we can subscribe to Israeli newspapers. The Jerusalem Post is an English language publication which appears online at jpost.com. There is also an international print edition which is mailed to subscribers’ homes. Although HaAretz is a Hebrew language paper, its online edition (haaretz.com) is available in English. These papers have very different perspectives. Following both of them gives the readers a broad overview of many issues concerning current developments in Israel.

People on Facebook can check out an open group (AP Monitor) which offers rebuttals to inaccuracies in reports about Israel in articles circulated by the Associated Press. Access the site at  AP Monitor Facebook Group.

They call me "NewsHound IV," because I'm a clever Finnegan, sniffing out stories all over the Boulder area. I love Jewish holidays because the food is GREAT, especially the brisket. Well all the food. I was a rescue pup and glad to be on the scent!

On Oct. 6, it would have been reasonable to predict that Biden or any Democratic nominee might sweep the six swing states, especially Michigan. After Oct. 7, Biden’s campaign could be imperiled in the aftermath of Hamas’ slaughter of 1,200 people in southern Israel.

We Must Face Division with Calls for Unity

I am not looking for sympathy or pity, I tell my story as the basis for my life’s work: to bring unity and understanding everywhere I go. When protestors yell “from the river and to the sea” and other anti-Semitic chants, we must let the words of unity drown out those of division.
