Actually, the El Al coverage is borderline “fair and balanced” as Fox News used to say (but no longer makes a pretense). For all its warts, El Al, is the best we have and are likely to have given the self-destructive constraints of trying to simultaneously run a profit-making cpommercial scheduled airline and operate under the supervision of a gazillion rabbonim who think they know better than the Rabbanut about airline management and halacha.
As a sort of adjunct to LH’s concluding words, perhaps you could add that since most of the world is against the Jewish people, and particularly frum people — we ought to show extra sensitivity before presenting what are often hyper-critical reports, news items and allowing comments about this or that group whose,main fault is being “more extreme” than we are. If we won’t stick up for each other, who will? Less dirty laundry in the open will definitely contribute to clearing the air.
I agree 100% we are the creators of the poisen. Vote for unbiased frum reporting especially when dealing with other yidden.
