|Discredited anti-Israel propaganda in the JC (click to enlarge)|
Yet on 18 April the Jewish Chronicle (which could not find room in its 60 pages to mention the Palestinian terrorist attack that took place on Passover Eve three days earlier) managed to find space for Gisha's spokesman Leora Garton to repeat the same propaganda and lies that had already been discredited a week earlier.
It would be wrong to say that the Jewish Chronicle has morphed into an exclusively anti-Israel propaganda organ, because it does still publish occasional features and letters that are supportive of Israel. Rather, the Jewish Chronicle is increasingly towing the line of the New Israel Fund (NIF) with which it now has a close relationship. The NIF is at best ambivalent about the future of Israel as a Jewish state, but most importantly it funds a large number of anti-Zionist NGOs that are active in the campaign to boycott and delegitimize Israel. Gisha is one such NGO funded by the NIF.
