Top Ten MidEast Media Mangles for 2014: 1. Hate-Indoctrination and Incitement Ignored No issue was more glaringly and indefensibly neglected by most of the media than the often grotesque demonizing of Israel and the Jewish people by the Palestinians and the wider Muslim/Arab world. Instead of reporting the hate-indoctrination prominently and continuously for what it is -- a central driving force for violence and fundamental threat to peace -- media outlets such as The New York Times typically ignored the phenomenon or characterized it as merely an accusation by Israelis rather than an objective reality. Few instances of such media malpractice were as blatant as The Times' censoring of Secretary of State John Kerry's strong denunciation of incitement as the cause of the massacre of Jews at prayer in Jerusalem's Har Nof synagogue. Kerry's emphatic statement was first included in an online version of the New York Times story but later entirely excised by the time the printed account reached readers. For the ...
How many Aidas is enough? The Metropolitan Opera’s revival, which opened in late October, marked their 1,140th performance of Verdi’s elephantine spectacle Friday night. Surely after the first 1,000 or so, it’s difficult to bring something fresh to an opera and pleasing the crowd becomes the point.

Fabulous building, the Metropolitan Opera House at Lincoln Center.
What happens when they hire a publicist before the libretto has even been started?. Protests Greet Met’s 'Klinghoffer’
BRAVO FILIPINO (1200) features pianist Cecile Licad in Schubert, Granados and Chopin. Soprano Evelyn Mandac sings in a recording of a 1975 appearance at the Metropolitan Opera House, New York.
Shame on the Metropolitan Opera to stage Death of Klinghoffer by wanting us to believe that it was written by the 2nd President of the United States, John Adams, who had a mini series and looks a *** of a lot like Paul Giamatti. All kidding aside, did anyone who was protesting actually see the opera? Was the composer glorifying terrorism and anti-Semitism or relaying a story as any writer, photographer or artist would. Unfortunately so many people protest without good cause it is impossible to determine if the protestors are doing so with good cause or just because they are following a herd mentality. I am curious as how it will be reviewed. Many great thinkers, artists and writers have been the victims of smear campaigns because their work was deemed unsuitable and subversive but without them we would still be living in the dark ages.
Protests and threats at New York's Metropolitan Opera: The 1991 work by John Adams, one of America's mo...
The Metropolitan Opera’s production of John Adams’s “The Death of Klinghoffer” could become its most controversial in more than a century.
Strange times when an old art form like opera can inspire more of a cultural frisson than pop music.
Night at the opera: Ruth Ginsberg in the audience, Giuliani outside protesting, an arrest, but Klinghoffer sang.
i am appalled that the metropolitan opera would perform a blatantly anti-Semitic opera. I am ashamed.
First there was now there is some interesting similarities though.
I got a request from the Metropolitan Opera for a donation however since I believe they are promoting Anti Semitism and glorifying Palestinian terrorists in their so called opera about Klinghoffer Shame on the Met ! iwrote in bold letters I Don't Support Antisemitism I mailed it today they may not act in a responsible way but we can hit them where it hurts Your wallet has a nice loud voice
It amazes me that so many people protest a work of art that they have never seen or heard.
If the Metropolitan Opera is going to exercise their right to hate speech, why are they entitled to use public funding to do so?
I stand with Americans Lisa and Ilse Klinghoffer. Shame on the Metropolitan Opera of NY for sullying their father's memory instead of allowing them to mourn in peace.
Controversy a poor substitute for musicality MT Amid firestorm, composer prepares for "Death of Klinghoffer."
If the defense of the Metropolitan Opera's right to hate speech is that they are a private org, they should forego public funds.
Protestors interrupt premiere of the opera which glorifies terrorists at
BRAVI TUTTI to the Metropolitan Opera on a magnificent Death of Klinghoffer! Art is about CHANGE & CONVERSATION. Art is about DISCUSSION & DISCOVERY. Let it continue.

Amid a firestorm, composer John Adams prepares for "The Death of Klinghoffer."
Rudy Giuliani, a former New York City mayor, led a rally outside the Metropolitan Opera on Monday to protest the company’s production of “The Death of Klinghoffer,” which some have called anti-Semitic and sympathetic to terrorism.
Met officials say a man was arrested on charges of disorderly conduct at "The Death of Klinghoffer"
I think both sides were represented fairly. It is performed and stage exquisitely. Neither side is favored, and the terrorists are most certainly not excused or "glorified". It is exciting, moving, powerful, honest and wonderful. Bravo, Metropolitan Opera. Bravo.
FU Metropolitan Opera! You will never see a dime of my money!. Z’L Mr. Klinghoffer
The production being staged by the Metropolitan Opera of New York rationalizes, romanticizes and legitimizes the terrorist murder of Leon Klinghoffer, his daughters write.
