CNN Special Compares YESHA Jews to Muslim Terrorists

Left leaning cable news station, CNN, has broadcast a documentary called G-d’s Warriors, which compares the Jewish residents of Judea and Samaria to Muslim terrorists.

 

Calling it the most grossly distorted program to appear on mainstream American television in many years, the CAMERA media watch dog group slammed CNN’s slanted journalism and the show's host Christiane Amanpour:

 

“Its basic premise is established in the opening scene in which Jewish (and Christian) religious fervency is equated with that of Muslims heard endorsing "martyrdom," or suicide-killing. There is, of course, no counterpart among Jews and Christians to the violent jihadist Muslim campaigns underway across the globe…. Since Jewish "terrorism" is virtually non-existent, the program magnifies at length the few instances of violence or attempted violence by religiously-motivated Jewish individuals - including having to go all the way back to 1980.”

 

Hundreds of Jewish residents of Yesha (Judea and Samaria) have been murdered by Arab terrorists in the past decade. In spite of this, barely any Jews have ever been involved in terror acts against Arab civilians.
