It's a special weekend bonus podcast with Tamar Sternthal (camera.org), Director of the Israel office of CAMERA. More than 500 journalists signed an open letter recently calling for more pro-Palestinian coverage and less flattering reports about Israel. She discusses the letter and her organization's response to it. She points out how many of today's journalists have thrown the clearly-defined code of ethics in their profession out the window.
It's always important to remember that reality always becomes real. But often we are blind to what's really going on because the media choose to focus on unimportant things. Not so with us. In today's boralogue, John looks at the results of the Israel-UAE peace deal which was brought about largely due to a change in the philosophy among Middle East peace narratives. After years of Palestinian leadership refusing to negotiate, the new strategy is to apprehend reality and upend the status quo. This has brought about alliances no one could predict, but once the old paradigm assumptions were removed, it became obvious those alliances were actually needed.
We remember the 9/11 victims and their families who suffered 19 years ago today when reality became all too real in New York, DC, Pennsylvania, and across America. Our prayers are with them.
