Where To Buy Cialis

A wonderful article by Alison Weir revealing how Americans are continually misinformed by our media on the subject of Israel/Palestine through journalistic (and military) allegiances to Israel, where to buy cialis a myriad of conflicts of interest and slanted coverage. All in the Family By ALISON WEIR Recent exposés revealing that Ethan Bronner, where to buy cialis the New York Times' Israel-Palestine bureau chief, where to buy cialis has a son in the Israeli military have caused a storm of controversy that continues to swirl and generate further revelations. Where to buy cialis (See my piece for CounterPunch, where to buy cialis The NYT's Ethan Bronner's Conflict With Impartiality.) Many people find such a sign of family partisanship in an editor covering a foreign conflict troubling – especially given the Times’ record of Israel-centric journalism. Times management at first refused to confirm Bronner’s situation, where to buy cialis then refused to comment on it. Where to buy cialis Finally, where to buy cialis public outcry forced Times Public Editor Clark Hoyt to confront the problem in a February 7th column. After bending over backwards to praise the institution that employs him, where to buy cialis Hoyt ultimately opined that Bronner should be re-assigned to a different sphere of reporting to avoid the “appearance” of bias. Where to buy cialis Times Editor Bill Keller declined to do so, where to buy cialis however, where to buy cialis instead writing a column calling Bronner’s connections to Israel valuable because they “supply a measure of sophistication about Israel and its adversaries that someone with no connections would lack.” If such “sophistication” is valuable, where to buy cialis the Times’ espoused commitment to the “impartiality and neutrality of the company's newsrooms” would seem to require it to have a balancing editor equally sophisticated about Palestine and its adversary, where to buy cialis but Keller did not address that. Bronner is far from alone. As it turns out, where to buy cialis Bronner’s ties to the Israeli military are not the rarity one might expect. • A previous Times bureau chief, where to buy cialis Joel Greenberg, where to buy cialis before he was bureau chief but after he was already publishing in the Times from Israel, where to buy cialis actually served in the Israeli army. • Media pundit and Atlantic staffer Jeffrey Goldberg also served in the Israeli military; it's unclear when, where to buy cialis how, where to buy cialis or even if his military service ended. • Richard Chesnoff, where to buy cialis who has been covering Mideast events for more than 40 years, where to buy cialis had a son serving in the Israeli military while Chesnoff covered Israel as US News & World Report's senior foreign correspondent. • NPR's Linda Gradstein’s husband was an Israeli sniper and may still be in the Israeli reserves. Where to buy cialis NPR refuses to disclose whether Gradstein herself is also an Israeli citizen, where to buy cialis as are her children and husband. • Mitch Weinstock, where to buy cialis national editor for the San Diego Union-Tribune, where to buy cialis served in the Israeli military. • The New York Times’ other correspondent from the region, where to buy cialis Isabel Kershner, where to buy cialis is an Israeli citizen. Where to buy cialis Israel has universal compulsory military service, where to buy cialis which suggests that Kershner herself and/or family members may have military connections. Where to buy cialis The Times refuses to answer questions about whether she and/or family members have served or are currently serving in the Israeli military. Where to buy cialis Is it possible that Times Foreign Editor Susan Chira herself has such connections? The Times refuses to answer. • Many Associated Press writers and editors are Israeli citizens or have Israeli families. Where to buy cialis AP will not reveal how many of the journalists in its control bureau for the region currently serve in the Israeli military, where to buy cialis how many have served in the past, where to buy cialis and how many have family members with this connection. • Similarly, where to buy cialis many TV correspondents such as Martin Fletcher have been Israeli citizens and/or have Israeli families. Where to buy cialis Do they have family connections to the Israeli military? • Time Magazine's bureau chief several years ago became an Israeli citizen after he had assumed his post. Where to buy cialis Does he have relatives in the military? • CNN's Wolf Blitzer, where to buy cialis while not an Israeli citizen, where to buy cialis was based in Israel for many years, where to buy cialis wrote a book whitewashing Israeli spying on the US, where to buy cialis and used to work for the Israel lobby in the US. Where to buy cialis None of this is divulged to CNN viewers. Tikkun's editor Michael Lerner has a son who served in the Israeli military. Where to buy cialis While Lerner has been a strong critic of many Israeli policies, where to buy cialis in an interview with Jewish Week, where to buy cialis Lerner explains: “Having a son in the Israeli army was a manifestation of my love for Israel, where to buy cialis and I assume that having a son in the Israeli army is a manifestation of Bronner’s love of Israel." Lerner goes on to make a fundamental point: "...there is a difference in my emotional and spiritual connection to these two sides [Israelis and Palestinians]. Where to buy cialis On the one side is my family; on the other side are decent human beings. Where to buy cialis I want to support human beings all over the planet but I have a special connection to my family. Where to buy cialis I don’t deny it.” For a great many of the reporters and editors determining what Americans learn about Israel-Palestine, where to buy cialis Israel is family. Jonathan Cook, where to buy cialis a British journalist based in Nazareth, where to buy cialis writes of a recent meeting with a Jerusalem based bureau chief, where to buy cialis who explained: “… Bronner’s situation is ‘the rule, where to buy cialis not the exception. Where to buy cialis I can think of a dozen foreign bureau chiefs, where to buy cialis responsible for covering both Israel and the Palestinians, where to buy cialis who have served in the Israeli army, where to buy cialis and another dozen who like Bronner have kids in the Israeli army.” Cooks writes that the bureau chief explained: “It is common to hear Western reporters boasting to one another about their Zionist credentials, where to buy cialis their service in the Israeli army or the loyal service of their children.” Apparently, where to buy cialis intimate ties to Israel are among the many open secrets in the region that are hidden from the American public. Where to buy cialis If, where to buy cialis as the news media insist, where to buy cialis these ties present no problem or even, where to buy cialis as the Times’ Keller insists, where to buy cialis enhance the journalists’ work, where to buy cialis why do the news agencies consistently refuse to admit them? The reason is not complicated. While Israel may be family for these journalists and editors, where to buy cialis for the vast majority of Americans, where to buy cialis Israel is a foreign country. Where to buy cialis In survey after survey, where to buy cialis Americans say they don’t wish to “take sides” on this conflict. Where to buy cialis In other words, where to buy cialis the American public wants full, where to buy cialis unfiltered, where to buy cialis unslanted coverage. Quite likely the news media refuse to answer questions about their journalists’ affiliations because they suspect, where to buy cialis accurately, where to buy cialis that the public would be displeased to learn that the reporters and editors charged with supplying news on a foreign nation and conflict are, where to buy cialis in fact, where to buy cialis partisans. While Keller claims that the New York Times is covering this conflict “even-handedly, where to buy cialis” studies indicate otherwise: * The Times covers international reports documenting Israeli human rights abuses at a rate 19 times lower than it reports on the far smaller number of international reports documenting Palestinian human rights abuses. * The Times covers Israeli children’s deaths at rates seven times greater than they cover Palestinian children’s deaths, where to buy cialis even though there are vastly more of the latter and they occurred first. * The Times fails to inform its readers that Israel’s Jewish-only colonies on confiscated Palestinian Christian and Muslim land are illegal; that its collective punishment of 1.5 million men, where to buy cialis women, where to buy cialis and children in Gaza is not only cruel and ruthless, where to buy cialis it is also illegal; and that its use of American weaponry is routinely in violation of American laws. * The Times covers the one Israeli (a soldier) held by Palestinians at a rate incalculably higher than it reports on the Palestinian men, where to buy cialis women, where to buy cialis and children – the vast majority civilians – imprisoned by Israel (currently over 7, where to buy cialis000). • The Times neglects to report that hundreds of Israel’s captives have never even been charged with a crime and that those who have were tried in Israeli military courts under an array of bizarre military statutes that make even the planting of onions without a permit a criminal offense – a legal system, where to buy cialis if one can call it that, where to buy cialis that changes at the whim of the current military governor ruling over a subject population; a system in which parents are without power to protect their children. * The Times fails to inform its readers that 40 percent of Palestinian males have been imprisoned by Israel, where to buy cialis a statistic that normally would be considered highly newsworthy, where to buy cialis but that Bronner, where to buy cialis Kershner, where to buy cialis and Chira apparently feel is unimportant to report. Americans, where to buy cialis whose elected representatives give Israel uniquely gargantuan sums of our tax money (a situation also not covered by the media), where to buy cialis want and need all the facts, where to buy cialis not just those that Israel’s family members decree reportable.
