Network TV Spins the Massacre
Just watching ABC's coverage of the Israeli boat massacre, and they certainly mention today's worldwide protests, but they also label them all as Muslim protests, and only show footage of the visually-identifiable Muslims among those on the boat, thus attempting to marginalize the outrage, so some just see the facial hair and the veils and forget.
Not so. Everyone is furious. The very first picture you will see in this slideshow
is orthodox Jewish activists protesting Israel's massacre.
It isn't just Muslims who care about this. It's people with a sense of decency and justice, who believe Israel is a vicious bully that believes it can commit atrocities at its whim. As an Israeli roommate of mine once said, it's run by old men with old grudges who discourage younger people from getting into their government, which is why it always seems to be the same people shifting back & forth like musical chairs. As long as that's the case, and as long as they never face sanction for crimes they commit, that government will continue doing things like this.
An attack on people bringing humanitarian aid, without guns, in international waters. Israel's government honestly thinks they can call that self-defense.
