The Yemenite Babies Affair is the emotionally laden, yet still unresolved, story of the alleged kidnapping of hundreds of Yemenite babies upon their arrival to Israel during the 1950s. This book examines bias within the state of Israel and the media at large, through the lens of the news coverage of the Yemenite Babies Affair. In analyzing fifty years of public narratives, Shoshana Madmoni-Gerber argues that the media played a major role in the concurrent framing and silencing of this story. This eye-opening study exposes the clash between the European Zionist ideology of unity and the reality of Israel's diverse society, where at least half of the Jewish population is of Arab descent.
