  •  MSM didn't report armistice Jabari was to sign! (9+ / 0-)

    We have to read an Israel newspaper to learn the important fact that Jabari received a truce document a few hours before he was assassinated by Israeli forces.

    Shame on the MSM for aiding and abetting this death and destruction by omitting to report that an armistice lies unsigned on the assassinated Hamas leader's desk!  

    Israel lost 3 people because they attacked a Hamas leader just as he was about to sign a cease fire.  How can Israeli leaders justify this deadly hypocrisy?  

    This attack clearly had nothing to do with saving Israeli lives, quite the contrary.  It served to sabotage the peace process and perpetuate war.

    Hundreds of Palestinians were injured, at least 7 killed, including a 7 year old girl and a baby, and 3 Israelis lost their lives, and now that the peace agreement won't be signed, this killing can continue.

      They simply parrot the line in the DC conventional wisdom. Israel is infallible, anyone who opposes them are the enemy. That's how the brass in the MSM thinks.

      The Grand Bargain must be stopped at all costs to protect the 99%.

        be returned some day to the people and tell the truth.  More and more people are here on DailyKos and other websites, because they know that their newspapers are owned by warmongers who lied to them about yellowcake and mushroom clouds.

        Look at the trouble these rags are in for lying to us!  I cut back on my subscriptions, and so did scads of others.

        Look at how Murdoch's media empire is being exposed for hacking e-mails and yellow journalism.

        Don't give up so easily.  Don't ever forget how evil tyrants have gotten their due throughout history.  They want you to feel helpless and be apathetic.

        I've spoken to many journalists who tell me how their articles get snipped and edited by editors who have a war agenda.

        They're not all bad.  

        My comments here are my way of fighting back.  I'm an older person who lived through the Viet Nam War, and I felt hopeless, but that war did eventually end, and the creeps who lied us into it are mighty ashamed now.  They're not considered heroes by any stretch of the imagination.  

        The truth is a formidable adversary for liars and thieves.
