Hebrew and English

By Gilad Atzmon

According to sources in Iran, a nuclear scientist was killed in Tehran today by a bomb placed on his car by a motorcyclist. It is very clear to most of us who stands behind these continuous attacks on Iran’s scientists and military personnel.

However, the discrepancy between Hebrew and English press reporting on the incident is pretty staggering and demands some deliberation.

While the Israeli  English outlet Ynet reports  on the incident in a pretty cold manner, it goes as far as reporting  on “mysterious explosion in Iranian capital”, the Hebrew Yntet is happy to suggest that Israel is probably behind all those ‘mysterious attacks’.

The Hebrew publication ends its coverage of the story stating that yesterday Chief of Staff - Major General Benny Gantz,  said that 2012 would be a “critical year for Iran”. he refered specifically to “continued pressure (on Iran) from the international community and the things that happen to them  unnaturally". It doesn’t take a genius to gather that if General Ganz speaks about future “unnatural” events, he must be closely familiar with the details of such events!!!

While the English Ynet, operates as  a Hasbara outlet, spreading Israeli propaganda for the Goyim and English speaking Jews,  the Hebrew version, is there to boost the Israeli moral. And as it happens, Israeli love to see their ‘enemies’ being, terrorised,  slaughtered and  murdered.

The true ‘mysterious’ nature of the Jewish state  and its relation with the world is indeed a disturbing one and a reason for serious concern.
