Lancet Medical Journal under Attack for “Extremist Hate Propaganda” over Coverage of Israeli-Palestinian Conflict


british-medical-journal-lancetThe Lancet medical journal and its editor, Richard Horton, have been targeted over what an international group of more than 500 doctors claims is the “grossly irresponsible misuse of [the journal] for political purposes.”

The protesting doctors, including five Nobel laureates, accuse the journal of publishing “stereotypical extremist hate propaganda” and threatened to boycott the journal if publisher Reed Elsevier does not “enforce appropriate ethical standards of editorship.”

The trigger was an article published last July during the Gaza fighting, which included eyewitness accounts of the medical impact on civilians but did not include an acknowledgement of Hamas’ role in the war.



  1. Boycott is the only answer.

    Anti -Israel/JEWISH sentiment is taking over the world and we are sitting passively while this is happening.

  2. Don’t insult all the Jews who have been victims of anti-semitism over the years by implying that they could have done something to prevent it. Our fate lies with HKB”H, and it is to Him that we must direct our actions.
