UK: Lancet medical journal accused of extremist hate propaganda

This is not a one time thing.  The Lancet often publishes articles which incite hatred against Jews and Israel.

In fact, the Independent, which like all other British media also incites against Jews and Israel, is giving us an example of how to incite right here.  The article includes a clip from al-Jazeera about the sad situation of the poor Gazans.  There is no mention of Hamas attacks on Israel.  There is no mention that Israel is transferring tons of cement and other supplies into Gaza.  There is no mention that the neighborhood being shown was a Hamas stronghold from which Hamas intended to attack Israel.

I'll leave the analysis of weasel words in this article to the experts.

Via the Independent:
One of the world’s oldest and most venerable medical journals is under attack from an international group of more than 500 doctors over its coverage of the humanitarian disaster caused by the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

The Lancet and its editor, Richard Horton, have been targeted over what the group claims is the “grossly irresponsible misuse of [the journal] for political purposes”. The controversy was sparked by an article deemed to be critical of Israel’s conduct in Gaza.

The protesting doctors, including five Nobel laureates as well as Lord Winston, the broadcaster and IVF pioneer, style themselves “concerned academics”, and accuse the journal of publishing “stereotypical extremist hate propaganda”. They also accuse the journal’s owner, the publishing firm Reed Elsevier, of “profiting from the publication of dishonest and malicious material that incites hatred and violence”.
