Israel Palestine Peace Holding...Just

Interesting that the shaky peace between Israel & Palestine is still holding although there is mounting pressure on Israel to respond to the 4 rockets that have been fired into Israel by Palestinian militants.
Probably suits many to depict Palestine as the one attempting to break the truce but of course there has been little mention that since the deal, Israel has continued raids into Palestinian territory, killing two people which prompted the Islamic Jihad rockets landing in Israel.
The tit for tat killings will probably sadly return but to see and hear the likes of Fox News urging Israel to 'defend itself against militants hell bent on wrecking the peace deal' is ignoring the fact that it if anyone, it has been Israel who have been doing their level best to wreck things since the announcement.
Just wanted to put this down as a marker for the inevitable future arguments over who broke this particular deal.

You know, it never occured to me until just now that we aren't the only people afflicted with Fox News. How sad.

However, if it makes you feel any better:

We get it via Sky TV which is also a Murdoch enterprise. CNN also. The amount of advertising breaks annoy me no end but it never ceases to amaze me what Fox can get away with there.

It's very hard to know what to believe, and we tend to shade our views on the truth in regards to our opinions.

Very true cody, many things depend on where we get our information from and how that source interprets the facts.
