Introducing France 24 Watch

France 24Why watch France 24?

France 24 (pronounced “France vingt-quatre”) the wholly state-owned international news and current affairs television network broadcasts in French, English, Arabic, and Spanish via satellite and cable operators around the world and apps for mobile phones. It aims to compete with leading English-language international news channels BBC World News and CNN International. With a €100 million budget each year it certainly has a shot.

It occurred to me that although France 24 (and occasionally other French media in English) generally don’t show the degree of nastiness and anti Israel advocacy of the BBC, the Guardian or the New York Times it would be a public service to keep an occasional eye on their Israel reporting.

Truly spooky!


Arafat Irfaiya, Palestinian suspect in brutal rape, murder of teen Ori Ansbacher will probably spend years in prison. The Palestinian Authority will pay him a healthy salary while inside as a nationalist fighter.

Look at the Arafat Irfaiya and Anthony Perkins in his signature Norman Bates role together. It is as if the real killer of a random 19-year-old woman was practising the pose for his 15 minutes of fame. Murderer, terrorist or psycho?

Feel free to share.

The Tao of Petitions

How little is too little?

Five Minutes for Israel was created on the principle that Israel advocacy need not take much of a supporter’s time. Commenting on social media; voting in an online poll; signing a petition all let Israel’s voice be heard are all valuable.

Then I wrote that some petitions I was requested to join were factually faulty or badly written or rants and shouldn’t be signed. Suddenly I was a combination of Hitler, Stalin and Mao.  Continue reading
