RCG Quoting Arutz Sheva

Arutz Sheva is a news organization from Israel that caters for national religious Israeli Jews, is closely associated with the religious Israeli settlers in the West Bank and is trusted by PCG, UCG and LCG. All three organization have quoted Arutz Sheva without ever bothering to inform their readers that Arutz Sheva happens to be far to the right in regard to politics or criticizing anything that they quote from Arutz Sheva.

Dave Pack's group, the Restored Church of God, has also quoted Arutx Sheva. It is never even mentioned that Arutz Sheva happens right wing in regards to politics and closely associated with the religious right in Israel. Just like UCG, PCG and LCG it is never even mentioned Arutz Sheva is right wing, happens to be linked to the Israeli religious right and it is never criticized by RCG.

Ms. Rice’s comments were met with severe criticism by Israeli Industry and Trade Minister Eli Yishai.
“I would like to know how it would look if someone would say that the U.S. has no right to develop Washington,” he said. “Rice doesn’t consult with anyone before approving a new city in the U.S.” (Arutz Sheva, Israel National News). (Housing Project Threatens to Harm Israeli-Palestinian Relations, June 18, 2008.)

Despite its population being 98 percent Arab, Jordan is one of the only Middle Eastern nations to oppose the Palestinian Authority’s September bid to gain United Nations acceptance as a state.
According to Israeli newspaper Arutz Sheva, “Jordan is continuing its efforts to convince the Palestinian Authority leadership to abandon its attempt to secure membership as a new country at the United Nations this September.” (Jordan--Old Meets New, September-October 2011.)

So much has happened in just one month in world events. Surely everyone is aware by now that the U.S.-mediated peace talks between the Palestinians and the Israelis have essentially collapsed. A very serious matter is developing on the world scene. Late last week, Israel halted the final (fourth) release of 26 Palestinian prisoners after hearing that Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas was only staying in the negotiations to manipulate Israel and get what he wanted. A report in Arutz Sheva stated, “Much of the objection to the fourth release came after the PA chief negotiator, Saeb Erekat, admitted earlier this month that…Abbas was staying in talks solely for the sake of the terrorist releases.”
Israel had already released 78 prisoners in three rounds of 26, but decided not to free more convicted murderers in light of the doubt cast on the motives of the Palestinians. Arutz Sheva went on to report about the Palestinians’ response to Israel’s decision: “The Palestinian Authority (PA) said Friday that Israel would regret its decision not to go through with the release of the fourth batch of terrorists it undertook to release as a ‘gesture’ to the PA…” (David C. Pack, World News Report: April 2014 -- Inside the Mid-East Crisis, April 4, 2014.)
