Must-read: An analysis of the current Gaza war that explains why there are still rockets falling on Tel Aviv.
Isn’t it ironic: You just have to love this. A pro-Hamas rally in Tel Aviv was broken up by–rockets fired by Hamas at Tel Aviv.
Don’t worry, the AP has Hamas’ backs: Yeah, take a look at how they portray the killing of three civilians by rocket. Note the passive use of “died” as opposed to “killed,” which they use when Israeli rockets kill Palestinian civilians. Note the use of “projectile” for “rocket” or “missile.” And note how they manage to make it seem like Tel Aviv has nothing to worry about. Three million people under rocket fire? Doesn’t matter. “No casualties were reported there.”
Fighting between the two sides escalated sharply Thursday with a first-ever militant attack on the Tel Aviv area, menacing Israel’s heartland. No casualties were reported there, but three people died in the country’s rocket-scarred south when a projectile slammed into an apartment building.
Now let’s look at how they describe Gaza.
The death toll in the densely populated Palestinian territory climbed to 19, including five children, according to Palestinian health officials, as waves of Israeli fighter planes and drones sent missiles hurtling down on suspected weapons stores and rocket-launching sites.
Early Friday, 85 missiles exploded within 45 minutes in Gaza City, sending black pillars of smoke towering above the coastal strip’s largest city. The military said it was targeting underground rocket launching sites.
What a difference a bias makes.
Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood helping Gaza: Egypt’s prime minister visited Gaza to help Hamas, enabling Ismail Haniyeh to come out of his underground bunker at Shifa Hospital and play it up for the Arab press. Meantime, Israel promised not to fire on Gaza while the PM visited. The terrorists launched 60 missiles. So yes, it was a calculated plot to harm Israel. The IDF knows where you are, Haniyeh, and the ground force is gathering. I think this time, it isn’t going to stop until the rocket launchers are all destroyed.
