Israellycool reader Estikat final night time watched a Sky Information programme on what’s going on in Yemen, with the Iranian-backed Houthis inflicting dying and destruction. One half particularly irked her: Sky Information correspondent correspondent Alex Crawford adopted up footage of the Houthis chanting their antisemitic slogan: “God is nice, dying to the U.S., dying to Israel, curse the Jews, and victory for Islam” with the assertion that one of the vital notable issues was how united they had been of their condemnation and hatred of the West. And by West, she means those that had been “a part of the coalition that was making the North Yemenis endure a lot.”
Hello @SkyNews @AlexCrawfordSky Yemen has simply ethnically cleansed the final of their Jews and also you utterly gloss over the overt antisemitism on show right here by merely referring to “the west”. Please clarify… pic.twitter.com/v2DttEjR31

Whereas Israel has by no means concerned itself straight within the battle, some anti-Israel parts of the media have alleged we’ve got been offering logistical assist for the coalition established by Saudi Arabia in 2015 to counter the Houthis’ effort to take over the nation. Nonetheless, the Houthis adopted their antisemitic slogan again in in 2003, after the second Iraq battle deeply radicalized their motion. Briefly: the Houthis are deeply antisemitic, and their cursing the Jews can’t be merely defined below “hatred of the West” as Crawford makes an attempt to do. Plus as Estikat writes, Yemen has ethnically cleansed their Jews.
This appears to be a typical theme with Crawford’s reporting of this battle. Again in November, that is how she described those self same chants (with the very same footage).
No point out of ““God is nice…curse the Jews, and victory for Islam,” which shines a light-weight on the Islamic fundamentalist and antisemitic nature of their beliefs.
By ignoring the Jew hatred and portray this as merely some type of resistance to Western and Israeli army motion, Crawford is following the identical inaccurate script that so many within the mainstream media undertake in relation to reporting the Center East battle.
