Gee, could that be because Israel was (and has been)
attacked by Hezbollah and Hamas, after giving back
Gaza and leaving Lebanon...those signs of good will
and peace and following treaties helped a lot didn't
The coverage is generally skewed against Israel
in my view.
Sadly, the news media generally leave out any
historical perspective for our viewing, don't give
us the history leading up to the kidnappings and
the Israeli reaction.
Nor does the news media give us the history of
Hezbollah and Hamas against the west and
the USA and in Lebanon.
They are supposedly lobbing bombs at the poor
defenseless civilians on purpose, and with way
too much firepower. The terrorists are just
reacting, and accidentally hitting civilians.
The media is openly parading for more talks.
They want Bubba Clinton to open up a new peace
That will do what? Nothing. But, it will make for
good headlines and the coverage they like. As most
in the media in the USA are very anti-Bush and very
anti-Israel. They've become the BBC in my opinion.
Where we don't use the word terrorist, we say militant
or detainee or reactionary or the always helpful
words student or refugee (mind you, one with an
Uzi or Iranian supplied weapon in hand).
