Media/Gaza
« on: January 21, 2009, 08:44:42 PM »
Something was brought up on another topic about the media. Something I have noticed about the media and the Gaza thing. I have never heard the body count of Israelis. Just the Gazans. Surely some of those rockets fired into Israel killed somebody.

rockets were fired every day into israel.  every day, people took cover in bunkers.  in one of the last bunch of attacks, a school was hit.  the only reason no children were killed is that they had canceled school for that day.  fewer Israelis die because they all have bunkers and there are bunkers around the towns.  when the rockets are fired, everyone goes underground. 

there were no tears in the press over the years about the psychological impact on people, especially children, who live under constant attack.  nothing about the tunnels constantly dug into israel so that the soldiers who watch the borders and watch for the rockets can be killed, or kidnapped.

remember Lebanon a couple of years ago?  almost no mention in the MSM of the fact that the UN observers watched as the terrorists prepared to attack israel.  their excuse?  they were there to observe, not warn of attacks.  hezbollah fighters even took cover behind UN observation posts.  if you search google, you'll find page after page condemning israel for hitting a UN post and killing observers, but  not one word about the behavior of those observers.

Or any condemnations of the Palestanians for using women, children, hospitals, UN offices and officials, and even the news media as defensive shields.  When the Palestainians used the news media as sheilds the Israwli's were condemned for endangering innocent bystanders.
