This was a very busy week at EoZ.

My "Israeli peacenik meets the reality of Palestinian Arab intransigence" article received a bit of attention, and for good reason. But that paled next to my other major post yesterday, "Why are human rights organizations silent about Arab and Muslim anti-semitism?", which received over 500 Facebook Likes and was republished in The Algemeiner. Lost in the glare of those two posts was my article, also Thursday, about B'Tselem's bias in their latest report.

Another notable post was about the BBC's biased headline on the apparent Israeli airstrike - a headline which ended up being changed because of all the complaints.

I wish the same could be said for my other post about extreme British media bias, where The Economist falsely claimed that some 400 Arabs were evicted from the West Bank. I emailed, tweeted and commented on their site multiple times, and yet they kept their erroneous statistic in the article. (Even an anti-Israel commenter at the site agreed I was right.) It is a shame that a prestigious magazine refuses to correct its glaring error. If anyone else wants to complain to them, feel free - even though it is way too late to make a difference to the readers, The Economist should know that it cannot lie about Israel with impunity. Right now, apparently, it can. (That post of mine was also reproduced in The Algemeiner.)

This week, one of my most-read posts was actually from 2011. It is gratifying to see that every time some idiot on Facebook posts "the map that lies," one of the good guys can easily find my post to debunk it.

Also this week I managed to squeeze in some history , some marketing and some more proof that lazy journalists often just play telephone with each other. And a few dozen other posts, besides.

Thank God for Shabbat!

Here's a very inside Shabbat joke/pun:

UPDATE: I just saw this nice Yom Yerushalayim video - on an Arab site, meant to make their readers angry at how much Jews love the city. (Apparently, they also had a rally for kicking the Jews out of Jerusalem on Friday morning, so this is a wonderful contrast:)

So who deserves the City of Gold more?

One thing is for certain: there were never any celebrations like this praising Jerusalem when Jordan occupied the city.
