The Case of Tuvia Grossman
By Rick Gordon
Tuvia Grossman is an American student with dual Israeli citizenship, millions worldwide viewed the image on this page of the bad-ass Israeli Jewish cop brutally beating a helpless Palestinian. In reality, the Israeli cop was defending Grossman from a violent Moslem mob that had stabbed and beat him bloody. The photograph, taken in 2000 during the Second Intifada was published in The New York Times, Associated Press and other International newspapers who fictitiously reported that the Israeli police officer had brutally beaten a Palestinian.
The NY Times headline read “an Israeli policeman and a Palestinian on the Temple Mount”.
Grossman was attacked, when his Taxi driver 'mistakenly' entered th Arab neighborhood of Wadi al-Jozwas, an area known for violent anti-Semitism, in which outsiders - particularly Jews, are routinely beaten and slaughtered.
The NY Times pro-palestinian spin was exposed by the victims father, Dr. Aaron Grossman of Chicago. Due to lobbying by Dr. Grossman, the times was forced to print a correction. Below is an excerpt from Dr. Grossmans initial complaint to the times:
" that Palestinian is actually my son, Tuvia Grossman, a Jewish student from Chicago. He, and two of his friends, were pulled from their taxicab while traveling in Jerusalem, by a mob of Palestinian Arabs, and were severely beaten and stabbed. That picture could not have been taken on the Temple Mount because there are no gas stations on the Temple Mount and certainly none with Hebrew lettering, like the one clearly seen behind the Israeli soldier attempting to protect my son from the mob."
2016 A Muslim women was knocked down by a hit and run driver in Belgium, mainstream news sources immediately labeled it a hate crime perpetrated by a right winger. As the story unfolded and more facts became available it turned out that the hit and run driver was another Muslim named Mohamed. Meanwhile around the world the left wing media will go out of their way to avoid labeling acts of terrorism as Islamic terrorism until they have no choice.
Media Matters for America [MMA] was excreted from the anal minds of David Brock and George Soros back in 2004. They make the effort of presenting themselves as a 'research and information center' dedicated to monitoring analyzing and correcting any information presented to the Public that is not in line with the official progressive agenda
They monitor all conservative news and media - print, broadcast, cable, radio, and Internet sources. In many cases they dictate the content of progressive Democratic Party controlled media.
Wading through scores of old news stories and columns I was amazed at how diligently the liberal press of his day endeavored to depict him as a choir boy who ascended to Sainthood. That alone aroused my suspicion, if the liberal press is promoting somebody or something - then yes, he/she/it is connected. If not connected to the classical Italian mob, then that other great organized crime cabal - The Democratic Party. Now none will deny Saint Mario's connections to the Democrats he was one of the dirt-bags, but his connections to the Mafia itself is a tad more suspect, it is largely based on guilt by association.
