Liberman suggests Muslim ad money causes CNN, BBC, France 24 bias against Israel

Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman on Friday claimed Muslim nations’ advertising money was encouraging global media bias against Israel.

Asked during an interview on Hadashot TV news why Israel was losing the battle over media coverage of events in the Gaza Strip, Liberman said, “There is one Jewish state in the world. There are 57 Muslim states, who all have much bigger budgets” than Israel.

“Ultimately, the person who pays, gets to choose the music,” he said. “When you go now through all the international channels — from CNN, France 24, BBC — you’ll see that 90 percent of all advertisements come from the Muslim world.”

“We have no illusions. This is a festival of hypocrisy,” he said.

The deaths of 62 Palestinians during Monday’s violent protests along the Gaza border were met with international outrage and calls for an independent investigation of events. Hamas has subsequently admitted that 50 of the dead were members of the terror group. Three others were Islamic Jihad members. But these facts have received scant coverage in the international media.

Liberman said Israel wanted to alleviate the difficult humanitarian situation in Gaza and was taking “concrete steps” on a civil level to do so, though he would not go into details.

“There isn’t a day that we don’t sit and try to solve” Gaza’s humanitarian predicament, he said.

He claimed that there was very little true international will to provide aid to the Strip, and that “not a single international player is prepared to invest money” in rehabilitating Gaza.

  1. “There isn’t a day that we don’t sit and try to solve” Gaza’s humanitarian predicament”. What hypocrasy!!!! The mother of all hypocrites, I would say.

  2. Rafiq— you know that ahmadiyyah has many experiences with the extremist Muslim— Right? The extremist Grouos just persecuted Ahmadiyyah badly in Lombok—-you know that the extremist Groups never give up to defeat their enemies and then create Islamic state like ISIS.

    Almost 130 years Ahmadiyyah has been persecuting by the extremist Muslim— and will continue Rafiq until Ahmadiyyah and Christian defeated by them.

    Israel already gave Gaza to Palestine and has freedom to move in land and the sea—-

    What happen then?
    They made some rockets to kill innocent people of Israel—
    How many times Hamas went to war? 3-5 times— unfortunately Hamas did not get HELP from God—God punished Hamas severely till to day Rafiq.

    I am a Muslim— I should support Hamas because Hamas are Muslim—- the old symbol of “ Right or wrong is my religion— I will support my Muslim or Islam”

    We cannot apply it any more Rafiq— we have to stand up the truth of God’s word—I do not support The extremist Hamas— wahhabi—Hesbullah Shiah and Iran.

    If support them it means I support EVIL—that is wrong snd against my heart. That is why I always do not support Hamas even they are suffering now.

    This is my tought Rafiq— do you think it is wrong?
    All ❤️

    • To say that ‘Israel gave Gaza to Palestine’ is bullshit. Israel is blockading Gaza, limiting what can go in and out. It is a jail, as the UN Human Rights Commissioner recently stated. There is no need to support Hamas. What is needed is to support ‘equal justice for all’.
