Our video, “The Huffington Post’s Anti-Semitic Bias During the Third Intifada,” demonstrates that even in the face of near-daily Palestinian terrorist attacks on Jews during the Third Intifada, HuffPost did not run one story about any of the victims that featured their faces, names or stories, or the plight of their grieving loved ones – things that it routinely showers on Palestinians.
This page is designed to provide categorized examples of how HuffPost develops and gives top publicity to sympathetic stories about pretty much every category of living being, no matter how depraved, instead of a single Jew. By doing so, it is SaveTheWest’s contention that HuffPost is exhibiting its anti-Semitic bias that rises to the level of dehumanizing Jews, in much the same way that the “news” media controlled by Adolf Hitler did, in the lead-up to World War II, and the Holocaust.

(2) Palestinian civilians
Whenever a Palestinian civilian is suffering legitimate or bogus grief, or makes an accusation against Jews that is either untrue or cannot be proven true, HuffPost often rushes it to its front page or World page, where the story may remain for days at a time.
The following is but a sampling of such items – all of which contribute to spreading the false narrative that Israel is oppressing the Palestinian in much the same way as the Nazis oppressed the Jews, in World War II.
This picture, of a Palestinian woman weeping over the casket of her terrorist son (shot while throwing rocks at Israeli soldiers), was one of the first images that HuffPost published of the Third Intifada. For several weeks in the fall of 2015, Palestinian terrorists had been attacking Jews on a near-daily basis. HuffPost gave these attacks no coverage on its front page or World page. On October 6, however, it published an inflammatory, misleading story that implied Israel was the aggressor against the Palestinians – and beneath a picture of an angry Prime Minister Netanyahu, HuffPost positioned this picture. See the details in Incident 1 here.
From HuffPost’s story page about the “suspected Jewish extremist” attack on a “human rights rabbi”:
An original, picture-and-video story developed by HuffPost, of a Palestinian man who claims he was wrongfully subjected to arrest and tazing by the Israeli police, after a riot at an East Jerusalem water park. HuffPost promoted the story on both its front page and World page:
(6a) “Pussy Riot,” the vulgar Russian punk rock band
According to Wikipedia, Pussy Riot is:
…a Russian feminist punk rock protest group based in Moscow. Founded in August 2011, it has a variable membership of approximately 11 women ranging in age from about 20 to 33 (as of 2012). The group stages unauthorised provocative guerrilla performances in unusual public locations, which are edited into music videos and posted on the Internet. The collective’s lyrical themes include feminism, LGBT rights, and opposition to Russian President Vladimir Putin, whom the group considers a dictator, and to his links with the leadership of the Russian Orthodox Church.
In February 2012, Pussy Riot stormed a famed Russian Orthodox cathedral and burst into a vulgarity-laden hate protest against Christianity, the Russian Orthodox Church, and Vladmir Putin. In August 2012, they were sentenced to two years in a penal colony for “hooliganism.”
Since then, HuffPost has regularly run sympathetic depictions of the females in Pussy Riot, and featured editorials by the members and even their relatives. The climax of this ongoing train of sympathy occurred on August 19, 2012, when HuffPost had nine separate references to Pussy Riot on its World page at the same time:
