Kelo in Gaza: Detroit News’ Halal Reporter & Other Media Lies About Israel’s Disengagement

By Debbie Schlussel
As Israel continues its embarrassing kowtowing to terrorists–forcing its citizens to give up their Gaza homes to those who NEVER owned the land beneath them, ask yourself why America was so up in arms over the Supreme Court decision in Kelo, but not more angry when our government pressures Israel to do the same in Gaza–this time, based on ethnicity.
Imagine if the Kelo case had the government condemning homes in suburban Connecticut because the owners were White, and they wanted to give them to Muslim Arab relatives of Mohammed Atta to develop them. Not a stretch, because the terrorists won here, and the Jews in Gaza are being forced to turn over their homes to those who support terror.

Then there are the LIES the press is pimping us on. Here are a few of the most blatant ones:
* Detroit News (a/k/a Detroit Spews) Halal “reporter” Gregg Krupa, in a front-page story on the Gaza pull-out, again, lies about the number of Palestinians in Metro Detroit. He claimed, “there are 15,000 to 20,000 people of Palestinian descent,” but in fact, the 2000 Census says there are only 3,275 persons of Palestinian descent in Metro Detroit, and less than 4,000 in the ENTIRE State of Michigan. Did Louis Farrakhan use Krupa as his people-counter at the “Million” Man March, too? (Only 100,000 attended.)
This is not the first time. Krupa constantly pulls these phony Arab population numbers out of his rear end. When I once called him on it, he responded by telling me that I was “the dumbest woman alive” (wait, aren’t some of his gullible editors and readers women?) and that he was going to call the police on me. A little insecure on your apocryphal “reporting”, aren’t you, Gregg? (Tight with “former” Palestinian terrorist, FBI Award revokee, and now Islamic leader Imad Hamad, tows whatever is the Islamic community’s party line, in all of his slanted–that’s being charitable–stories.)
* USA Today’s front-pager, “Historic Pullout Begins,” shows a photo (on the cover of the print edition) by Ronen Zvulun of Reuters, clearly showing Israeli settlers throwing the belongings they cannot salvage into a fire. Except, that’s not what USA Today wants you to think. The lying caption says, “In protest: Jewish settlers opposed to the forced withdrawal start a fire Sunday near Neve Dekalim, Gaza.” WRONG.
As reported on NBC’s Sunday Night newscast, as well as in many other media sources, these fires are for that property which they cannot move. And who can blame them for not wanting to leave it for the Palestinians who murdered and maimed many in their midst for decades? USA Today, apparently. Even at one of the darkest moments in Israeli history, the Gannett national jewel cannot stop its continued .
* In news stories of the Gaza surrender, how many times have you heard reporters say, “giving Gaza back to the Palestinians”? I counted at least ten such reports on TV, radio, and in print–and I was barely noticing (that includes Monday’s NBC Nightly News report by Martin Fletcher, who stated, “and handing the land BACK to the Palestinians”). Yet, what was Gaza before Egypt attacked Israel in 1967? It was EGYPTIAN land. NOT Palestinian land. The idea that it is now being “GIVEN BACK” to the Palestinians is a LIE. It was never theirs in the first place. And, by the way, where was that pressure from the State Department on Egypt to give the land “back” to the Palestinians for the decades that Egypt held it? Only when Israel does so.
The color of my t-shirt, today, is ORANGE.

MSM lie # 39 of 2005 – Detroit News inflates numbe

[I guess the Detroit News must have found its extra 11,000 to 16,000 on the Democratic Party voter registration rolls.]
The MSM/DNC is always overstating the number of Arabs and Muslims in this country. MSM/DNC has done so since 9-11. This populat…

According to the Torah,the southern boundary of Israel is 20 miles south of Gaza,but you can’t blame Egypt for not wanting to put up with their mass murdering Islamic brethren-which is another example of how lucky the worst lowlifes are to deal with Jews.For anyone delusional about the mentality this is really about-check out about the culture of those “poor Palestinians” and about what it has been like to live under Syrian occupation in Lebanon.

Not only does the news say “back to the Palestinians”, but the news also repeatedly fails to mention that the Pals turned down Gaza when the opportunity to form their own country was offered to them in 1947, instead choosing to gamble and try for the whole package, and they lost (also turning it down a 2nd time via the Three No’s of Khartoum once Israel gained control of it from Egypt in 1967, and a 3rd time in 2000). It COULD have been Pal land the entire time if they would’ve wanted. Is this the only time in history where the losers not only received spoils, but had to have them literally forced upon them?
One small point, though. Egypt didn’t attack in 1967. Egypt started the war by blocking off the Straits of Tiran, which violated the UN Convention on the Territorial Sea and Contiguous Zone, which put Egypt and Israel in a state of war. There’s no doubt that Egypt started the war. Just not by attacking. Not all wars are initiated with combat.

MSM Lie # 40 – Another Gaza lie

It has long been part of the MSM/DNC playbook to provide undue “props” to the “Palestinian” cause by providing designations that are not merited.
