The BBC starting the year as they ended it — with half a story. They don’t have to straight-out lie to show bias. They have all tricks of semantics, positioning and omission to do it for them. Continue reading

Unashamed self promotion

star-HASBY-2016_150Second 5MFI’s nomination for a 2016 Hasby Award

Among pro Israel blogs there are whales like Elder of Ziyon and minnows like Five Minutes for Israel. Each year Elder of Ziyon promotes the annual Hasby (as in hasbara) Awards for the best examples of pro-Israel advocacy for the year.

Although our chances of winning in the BEST PRO-ISRAEL BLOG category are slim even being on the list of candidates is great publicity. It drives readers to the blog and hopefully some are impressed enough to stay.

If you have enjoyed Five Minutes for Israel in 2015 please comment at Elder of Ziyon (http://elderofziyon.blogspot.co.il/2015/12/2016-hasby-award-nominations.html#.VoOpnxV95to) and second the nomination.

To the Honourable Julie Bishop MP
Minister for Foreign Affairs
