"GA: Being the subversive mind who coined the above observations, I wasn’t surprised to read the following expose by Nafeez Ahmed. I urge you to read this superb piece of Journalism. The Guardian is clearly a mere symptom of the colossal ethical bankruptcy of the ‘liberal’ and whatever is remaining of the Left. It is a glimpse into the Kosherization and the corrosive impact of Zionists in our midst."
Nafeez Ahmed 'Palestine is not an environment story’
How I was censored by The Guardian for writing about Israel’s war for Gaza’s gas
"After writing for The Guardian for over a year, my contract was unilaterally terminated because I wrote a piece on Gaza that was beyond the pale. In doing so, The Guardian breached the very editorial freedom the paper was obligated to protect under my contract. I’m speaking out because I believe it is in the public interest to know how a Pulitizer Prize-winning newspaper which styles itself as the world’s leading liberal voice, casually engaged in an act of censorship to shut down coverage of issues that undermined Israel’s publicised
Gaza’s gasI joined the Guardian as an environment blogger in April 2013. Prior to this, I had been an author, academic and freelance journalist for over a decade, writing for The Independent, Independent on Sunday, Sydney Morning Herald, The Age, The Scotsman, Foreign Policy, The Atlantic, Quartz, Prospect, New Statesman, Le Monde diplomatique, among others.On 9th July 2014, I posted an article via my Earth Insight blog at The Guardian’s environment website, exposing the role of Palestinian resources, specifically Gaza’s off-shore natural gas reserves, in partly motivating Israel’s invasion of Gaza aka ‘Operation Protective Edge.’ Among the sources I referred to was a policy paper written by incumbent Israeli defence minister Moshe Ya’alon one year before Operation Cast Lead, underscoring that the Palestinians could never be allowed to develop their own energy resources as any revenues would go to supporting Palestinian terrorism.
Please continue reading the article by Nafeez at the link beside his nameThe article now has 68,000 social media shares, and is by far the single most popular article on the Gaza conflict to date. Contrary to the conventional wisdom, Israel has seen control of Gaza’s gas as a major strategic priority over the last decade for three main reasons.Firstly, Israel faces a near-term gas crisis — largely due to the long lead time needed to bring Israel’s considerable domestic gas resources into production; secondly, Netanyahu’s administration cannot stomach any scenario in which a Hamas-run Palestinian administration accesses and develops their own resources; thirdly, Israel wants to use Palestinian gas as a strategic bridge to cement deals with Arab dictatorships whose domestic populations oppose signing deals with Israel.
This article that unbelievably caused Nafeez to lose his employment at the "liberal" Guardian was used by myself in this post from July 10/2014 IDF's Gaza assault is to control Palestinians Gas. And so much more In that July piece I had relinked older posts on the same topic to demonstrate that what Nafeez had written was widely known, having been covered by others elsewhere, without dispute.
However in an alleged news outlet such as the Guardian, with many readers, this factual truth must have just been a bit too much for the "Guardian of Judea" (I just love Gilad's observation) Lefty/Liberal censorship when it comes to Israel is equally as subservient as that practiced on the Righty/Conservative side. No facts. All politics. Sick.
