Jerusalem Post reports on snowfall in 'Palestine'If you need a data point about how far Left the JPost has gotten since Steve Linde took over for David Horovitz, you now have one. In a story about the biggest snowstorm since 1992, the JPost has reported on the snow in 'Palestine.'
At least 17 people have died in the winter storm in Lebanon, Jordan, Turkey, Israel and Palestine. Meteorological agencies in Israel and Lebanon both called it the worst storm in 20 years.Yes, I know, they're going to tell us that the sentence was copied from Reuters because it says 'Reuters contributed to this report,' but the byline is "JPOST.COM Staff, Melanie Lidman."
The bottom line is that the Leftist media - of which JPost has sadly become a part, is trying to subconsciously get us used to the idea that there is a 'state' called 'Palestine.'
Here's Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat talking about the snow in Jerusalem.
Let's go to the videotape.
There has not been a plow or a salt truck in my neighborhood as of 9:00 am. There are no buses, and if you must get around the only ways to do so are walking (which isn't really an option outside the neighborhood) or by car. This morning, on the way home from synagogue, I saw two ambulances struggling to make it up one of the hills, with their chains.
But then again, why would anyone expect otherwise? I live in a Haredi neighborhood. We're always the last to receive city services.
