Just a quick one today.
When the Israelis got shot at when their soldiers approached and were then lifted over the border fence between Israel and Lebanon, they jumped up and down screaming about what a dastardly deed the Lebanese had done. The world’s mainstream media grabbed the story and made headlines out of it.
Yet, a few weeks ago when Israeli soldiers near the border fence with the Gaza Strip took shots at Palestinian farmers tending their crops inside the Gaza border, the mainstream media said virtually nothing; not a dickybird.
Seems it’s OK for Israelis to shoot Arabs and Palestinians when they’re in or just close to no-mans land but still on their side of the border, but when Arabs and Palestinians take a shot at Israelis for actually being over the border all hell breaks loose.
Hypocrisy. Hypocrisy from the Israelis; hypocrisy from the mainstream media as well.
