You Don't See this on U.S. Television
I guess this post will cause a minor explosion.
Hopefully not literally so.
So let me first state, that I understand the Israelis. After all, this is a country surrounded by nations committed to eradicating Israel. Not cool.
But I also understand the Palestinians. Innumerable of them have been displaced for generations and live under terrible circumstances.
There is no simple solution. Jews should have their home country and are entitled to living in peace and safety. So are Arabs.
We all watch the U.S. news.
That news is decidedly pro-Israel, more so than most of the other "Western" countries.
So, whatever you think, and I DON'T personally support what is being said in the following news clip, but I do think it helps us understand how "the other side" is thinking.
It is the kind of interview U.S. television wouldn't dare to show. And it's done by Ruper Murdoch's conservative U.K. Sky News.
And here a recent headline from Kuwait Times. Gives you an idea of how the Arab population get their news. Then again, just yesterday the New York Times had another terrible picture of a suffocated baby dug out of a house, with his mother's arm still clinging around him.
Awful, just awful.
