What Others Are Saying
Our media have very little moral fiber left
Kay Wilson is a British-born Israeli. She is a jazz pianist, cartoonist, a licensed tour guide and a writer whose articles are published in The Tower, Arutz 7 and the Times of Israel.
Kay is also the survivor of a horrific machete attack that occurred in December 2010 while guiding her American friend and client, the late Kristine Luken. The two women were attacked and held at knife point and eventually tied up and then brutally stabbed. Kay watched helplessly as her friend was executed. Despite sustaining horrendous injuries herself, she managed to play dead and later escape. After nearly four years of physical rehabilitation and trauma therapy, Kay began working as an inspirational speaker, speaking for non-profits on issues of human rights for global victims of terrorism and campaigning against hate speech on university campuses.
The following content is what she had to say about her frustration with the British media that she posted this week on her Facebook page:
Following the Manchester attack, I wrote a post that until now has been shared nearly 28,000 times. Being just a mere mortal of the general public and not in any position of media, the amount of shares clearly shows it touched an important point.
I approached several British papers and asked them to publish it as an op-ed. No response so far. I also asked to appear on Piers Morgan show – no response so far. Only the Daily Mail and MailOnline has ever covered my story concerning the British tax payers funding of Palestinian terrorism.
And then I began to see a pattern.
Although I am an articulate speaker (which is seen in my TED talk below) that too has frankly surprisingly never been uploaded onto TED’s main site. Further, even though my articles have won awards, when I submitted one to the HuffPost, it was rejected as unsuitable – with no given reason.
I believe that I have a possibly globally unique story of survival with a deep ethos of the important things in life. For those who follow me know, I have always helped those of a different creed and colour, and have even risked my own life for a young Muslim Arab. There is not a bigoted or racist bone in my body.
I would like to know therefore, what I am doing wrong and how to amend this, in order that my voice and ideas of how to stop Islamic terror and make a better world, can be more widely heard.
Thank you for any feedback or help
