We already knew The Guardian had an anti-Israel bias (heck, even their music writer once attacked me), but in a piece entitled What we got wrong: the Guardian’s worst errors of judgment over 200 years, they go beyond even peak Guardian:
When Arthur Balfour, then Britain’s foreign secretary, promised 104 years ago to help establish a national home for the Jewish people in Palestine, his words changed the world. The Guardian of 1917 supported, celebrated and could even be said to have helped facilitate the Balfour declaration. Scott was a supporter of Zionism and this blinded him to Palestinian rights. In 1917 he wrote a leader on the day the Balfour declaration was announced, in which he dismissed any other claim to the Holy Land, saying: “The existing Arab population of Palestine is small and at a low stage of civilisation.” Whatever else can be said, Israel today is not the country the Guardian foresaw or would have wanted.
But that’s ok. I am glad they revealed who they really are. Besides, I consider The Guardian to be one of the worst errors of judgment over the last 200 years.
