The media's anti-Israel bias and the importance of truth

by The Philos Project Podcast

In June, the IDF completed a highly skilled mission to rescue four Israeli hostages, which sadly demonstrated the media’s anti-Israel bias and the importance of truth.

The hostages, Noa Argamani, Shlomi Ziv, Andrey Kozlov, and Almog Meir, were held in two apartment buildings near the Nuseirat refugee camp. The apartment holding Noa was the home of an Al-Jazeera journalist, Abdullah Al-Jamal.

While the media was quick to condemn the mission for the hundreds of civilians killed, few have pointed to the story as an example of the thin line between civilian and combatant in Gaza. The UN condemned the rescue mission, publicly stating Israel is under investigation for war crimes. The Office of the High Commissioner failed to name Hamas in the statement and omitted that the taking of Israeli hostages is a violation of international law.

This all points to the inherent media bias against Israel. Almost every event of this war has been internationally condemned while a blind eye is turned to the barbaric and inhumane tactics of Hamas.

Philos Project Director Luke Moon joins Dominique to discuss the anti-Israel bias both in the media and at the international level and why language and definitions matter in the pursuit of truth. Luke speaks from a Christian perspective on war and how faith is a lens through which to view current events and history.
