Luker Baker of Reuters Continues to Demonize Israel

You may recall my recent encounter with Luke Baker, Reuters bureau chief for Israel, and chairman of the Foreign Press Association. Let’s just say it did nothing to inspire my confidence in his objectivity or that of Reuters.

I decided to visit his Twitter timeline to see how he covered the Paris attacks.

The only Israel-related tweets are this one Baker decided to retweet:

And this one:

Regarding the retweet, bear in mind the plethora of gestures the Israeli government and Israelis made towards France.

Like the PM’s statement:

And the numerous lighting of landmarks in French colors.

And the thousands upon thousands of Israelis who changed their Facebook profiles to the French colors.

But no. To Luke Baker of Reuters, none of this is of interest. Not like some callous statements by a couple of Israelis.

As for the Shalev article he tweets about, while I don’t have a subscription to Ha’aretz, the article begins:

10 Commenters on the Paris Terror Attacks I Can Do Without

Those who equate Palestine with ISIS to erase the occupation, and those who blame Palestine for ISIS to erase Israel.

So I think you get the drift.

This is the Reuters bureau chief for Israel. Is it any wonder there is no fair coverage from them?
