It is neither CST’s desire nor role to act as a public relations outlet for Israel.
However, when antisemitism arises, directly, because facts have been deliberately omitted from an anti-Israel article, we will say so.
Today’s Independent provides one very small example of this. In this instance, the anti-Israel criticism, with not a word about Jews, is provided by columnist and comedian, Mark Steel.
Steel’s article is a disgraceful perversion of a Jerusalem Post interview with Israeli commandoes from the Turkish flotilla clash. Steel claims that Israeli “Sgt S” said the six people he shot “were without a doubt terrorists”.
