Israel in the Australian Media

By Tzvi Fleischer

Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs (JCPA), Fall 2005

The author argues that the Australian media focuses disproportionately on Israel and particularly on the Arab-Israeli conflict. To explain the derivation of this bias, the author cites trends imported from international sources, especially certain "narrative frames," and from domestic influences within the Australian media. The author also provides examples of the "new anti-Semitism" in the Australian media, including the extreme demonization of Israel, the alleged financial and media power of the Jewish lobby and conspiracy theories about American Jewish neoconservatives.
