In 2008, Reuters published a "fact box” on Jerusalem, omitting any mention that Arabs attacked Israel in 1947 and 1967 or that the Bible records the purchase of the city by King David.

Reuters dedicated three paragraphs to the Muslim claim to the city, failing to note that the Koran does not mention the city even once.
So Reuters didn't mention the Bible or the Koran as sources?

Those anti-israel bastards

I do not see this as a black and white issue, it's a very complex, sad, and misguided issue. And I find anyone who takes a hardline stance either way to be sad and misguided.

I agree.


So lets try this simple question.

Possibly.

Possibly, without seeing the knife.

Possibly, to focus on the main focus of the picture.

There are a dozen reasons.

Pictures get cropped, they have since the dawn of photography.

We don't really know the reason for the cropping, or the knife.

But knives are just tools, so don't worry.

The one where a vessel was clearly warned, multiple times, and chose not to comply.

IDF dropped down one-by-one with paintball guns, and got their asses handed to them with knives and steel poles. Unfortunately the real guns came out, and we know the result of that.

Anyone except for dear, sweet, lovable Helen Thomas who you'll defend when she calls the confrontation a "deliberate massacre, an international crime..." while scolding the press secretary in the White House Press Room.

you know, INDY, you're wielding anti-semitism in the way that you feel others wield racism.

yeah, it's kinda fun. I can see why much of the Left is so enamored with the technique as it sure beats the hell out of looking up facts and debating issues on their merit.

Guess I'll "move on' since the jig is up.

i think Ms. Thomas' comments were anti-Semetic.

however, i do not think that any and all criticism of Israel is anti-Semetic, though it's treated as such by many if not most conservatives.

i think Huckabee's wish for all the Arabs to be deported from the West Bank and sent "elsewhere" is racist.

Yeah, 'cause the majority of the left never does that, look up facts and talk about the actual issues. They just make wild, baseless accusations all the time with nothing to back it up.

Please.

Indeed. What Huckabee is arguing is to ethnically cleanse the area of Arabs. And whereas plenty of liberals have denounced Helen Thomas' comments as deplorable and inexcusable, not one conservative of note has spoken out against Huckabee's comments.
