Ha’aretz Goes Full Onion

You remember how I pointed out The Onion seemed to stop being The Onion? Some might even say they began being Ha’aretz.

Well, it looks like Ha’aretz has started being The Onion, with this piece from Chief palestinian propagandist Saeb Erekat.


Palestinians will continue to believe, resist, and insist that Israel’s decades-long military occupation will eventually end – with or without Mr. Greenblatt.

His statements only serve as a distraction. Palestinian efforts to liberate Palestine from Israeli oppression is not about who constitutes the Palestinian leadership – the same leadership that is criticized by its own citizenry and press, such as the Al Quds newspaper that ran Mr. Greenblatt’s article in Arabic, in the same manner as in any democratic society – but about the Israeli occupation and those that help perpetuate Israeli oppression. Which is more than we can say for Israel, which continues to criminalize freedom of speech, but continues to garner U.S. support.

Just let that sit and percolate for a bit.

An Israeli newspaper is publishing Saeb Erekat’s lies and demonization of the Jewish state, which include his claim that Israel criminalizes freedom of speech.

Thank you Ha’aretz for the laugh!

As for Saeb, keep serving up the comedy gold.
