10/4/10: More of HuffPost giving front-page, personalized coverage of Muslim deaths; Jewish victims of Muslim violence? Nope.


Today, HuffPost gives us another example of its anti-Semitic, pro-Muslim bias. From its front page:

That headline led to this story page. Note that not only is the individual's name put into the headline, but HuffPost directly associates it with pictures from his funeral, within immediate proximity.

To our knowledge --- after three years of close observation and documentation of its behavior --- HuffPost has never done this on behalf of Jews who were murdered by Muslims. Here's what we have documented, however:
Here, we documented how HuffPost briefly gave notice --- on a secondary page --- to four Israeli Jews who were targeted and machine-gunned to death by Hamas. HuffPost didn't mention any of the victims' names... or highlight the fact that one of them, a mother of six, was nine months pregnant.

At right: Hodoya Imes, 9, weeping for her parents after Hamas murdered them. If she and they weren't Jewish, perhaps HuffPost would have put this funeral on its front page, as it does for Muslims. Story here.

Here, we documented how HuffPost consistently refused to cover any of Hamas's follow-up attempts to murder Jewish civilians --- while at the same time, it was giving front-page coverage to trash stories, some of which it left posted for a week (an elephant with an injured foot). Here, we documented how HuffPost would not acknowledge or show any pictures of their funerals.

Here, we documented how HuffPost identified by name, and gave full-page pictorial coverage to a Muslim man who was shot while rampaging in a violent protest.

Here, we documented how, when a Muslim man hacked a sixteen year old Jewish boy to death with an axe, HuffPost didn't even show the boy's picture, or mention his name.

Many more examples of HuffPost's pathological anti-Semitic, pro-Islamist bias here.

We wonder if this disparity has anything to do with HuffPost's desire to cater to the radical leftists who flock to the site, whom it allows to vent their anti-Semitic, anti-Israel hatred? Or is it to cater to the 350,000+ unique monthly HuffPost visitors who originate in Muslim-majority nations --- including Iran, Pakistan and Saudi Arabia?




If you share our view that HuffPost's anti-Semitic, pro-Muslim bias is extremely offensive --- especially for an advertiser-supported publication that has repeatedly claimed it is a nonpartisan "newspaper," and that journalism's highest mission is "to ferret out the truth, consequences be damned" --- we urge you to do two things:
(1) Make your voice known to HuffPost's senior management (politely, please), here

(2) Forward the link to this story along to others who support Israel and Jews



  1. n an interview, a former Israeli minister admits that Israelis "always use the anti-Semitism trick or bring up the Holocaust" when there is criticism of Israel.

  2. @ "Roger":

    This is your third submission of this exact same comment. I'm only going to publish it once.

    First, while the source you cite, Shulamit Aloni, was indeed a member of the Knesset, and indeed said what you indicated, she is a stark raving radical leftist lunatic. How whack is she? Well let's take a look:

    - She called Jews "a nefarious people"

    - She said "what we do in West Bank is worse than all pogroms"

    - She said "Today is Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day. And what did they do in the Holocaust? They destroyed homes. They burned books. They didn't like Jews, and the settlers don't like those who think differently than they do."

    In short, she's exactly the kind of Jew that the Nazis loved: those who denounce their own people, and helped line them up for their part in the final solution. There was a term to describe such Jews: "Judenrats":

    Here's a hint: When you see an article that uses so much physical evidence to show such egregious bias against Jews, by a major "news" source, try to (a) Remain on topic, and (b) Use even remotely credible, sane sources for criticism.

  3. What a bunch of loser Huffingtonpost supports the Jewish side way more than the Palestinian side .Hasbara freaks get meds for your sickness before you have children

  4. @ Anonymous:

    HUFF-WATCH is nothing if not deeply concerned about the wellness of our visitors. In that spirit...
