The Guardian is scared.

That’s what I gather at least, from their use of scare quotes (or “sneer quotes,” whichever you prefer) in this article’s headline, Israel seizes ‘leader of kibbutz raid’.

Perhaps someone more knowledgable than I could tell me exactly what journalistic standard is being upheld by constantly throwing into doubt any and all statements made by Israelis while accepting at face value the aggressive mendacity of Palestinian spokesmen.

As the article demonstrates, Israel just has “claims,” while Palestinians are always “witnesses” with no such words expressing subjectivity or doubt attached.

Careful al-Guardian, you’re letting your true colors show.
