Double standards…between the war in Ukraine and the Palestinian cause

1 min read

The report emphasized the stark difference in the media coverage in regards to language, headlines, and narratives. The language used in the Western media to discuss both crises uncovered the duplicity and double standards of the US and European media in their claims of objectivity. Their objectivity was simply thrown out of the window in their coverage of the war in Ukraine. They are mostly positive in their coverage of the Ukrainian resistance, but when they cover the Palestinian resistance, they are either negative, or rarely “objective” at best, although both cases express resistance against the illegal occupation.
Moreover, they are fiercely positive of the condemnation and sanctions imposed on the Russian Federation. On the other hand, they are wary at best of any sanctions or boycotts of the Israeli state. In fact, most acts of support to Palestine by celebrities are portrayed as “antisemitic”.
