Haaretz for Hillary

Haaretz for Hillary

by Stephen Lendman

Israel’s well-known broadsheet increasingly resembles the worst of New York Times reporting. 

It shamelessly supports Hillary the way it backed Obama earlier, ignoring their high crimes instead of denouncing them - like it fails to condemn rogue Israeli policies, its lawless apartheid rule, its ruthless Anglo/Zionist agenda and wars at its discretion.

Last March, it called Hillary “by far the best known commodity on either side of the US presidential primaries…a liberal (sic) interventionist of the old school,” adding:

She’s “the only candidate (for) decapitati(ng) a dictator (sic),” meaning any independent leader Washington opposes - a policy Haaretz supports regardless of how in violation of fundamental international law.

“Clinton’s (interventionist) worldview…asserts that the United States must ‘lead’ the world to maintain liberal (sic) values internationally,” said Haaretz.

She considers it “defending our way of life.” International law experts call it lawlessly interfering in the internal affairs of other countries, waging naked aggression, committing the supreme crime against peace.

Addressing the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) last year, an imperial mouthpiece, Clinton asserted America’s right to “lead a worldwide fight (using) every pillar of American power” to defeat ISIS and ‘radical jihadism’ “ - scourges Washington created and supports, she failed to explain.

Haaretz accused WikiLeaks of “a deliberate attempt to scupper Hillary Clinton” instead of praising its important expose.

Thousands of leaked emails showed DNC officials (for certain with Hillary’s involvement) rigged the primary process to anoint her party standard bearer, making her nomination illegitimate.

Haaretz suggests perhaps Russia was involved, adding its voice to the disreputable Western media Putin-bashing echo chamber.

Print and electronic media may endorse political candidates they prefer freely. Substituting propaganda for credible news and information is out-of-bounds. 

Yet it’s standard mainstream practice. Believe nothing these scoundrels report. Rely solely on credible independent sources - the only way to stay informed.
