and as for the 'global outrage' it is and has been trending against Israel and the IDF for years, it is like gay marriage, a slow but steady move in one direction.
Well, the article never said they might've been Palestinians, so naturally I would've thought they were Israelis.

Also, the article has been updated since I posted it. When I originally read it, it was shorter with less detail and background.

I really don't want to stir up any drama and turn this thread upside down, even if it seems that way, so why not send me a PM if you think something needs to be addressed?

I understand. I saw the article that called them Israeli spies. The reporting is just terrible these days. One has to filter everything and do multiple sourcing and still that may not be enough. Benghazi and the Petraeus affair are examples of early information that was out for days and then later it turned out to be not completely factual.

I don't think anything needs to be addressed. All I see is you getting ultra-defensive over nothing. Hence, my post. Nothing more to it. BoMac corrected you in a very polite manner.

Just going to add on that I too hope you will be safe, AchtungBono. I can't imagine what it must be like over there right now. Take care.

He did, but he's been doing this for a long while now. I used to ignore it, but now its starting to bother me. Its like he gets upset every time I make a mistake and I'm being watched by a hawk. I don't see how that's very effective in learning anything.

I'm sorry if you feel like I'm being a hawk. I would have had the same response had someone else made the same comment you made, so it's not like I'm singling you out.

I don't want to derail this thread any further.

He does do it all the time, to deny that is a crock. Sorry. If someone did that to me here I wouldn't like it either. I don't get the need to single out a person like that and police them. We ALL make mistakes. Even those doing the policing.

Thank you, BoMac.

Let's all get back to the topic and move on...

Hello Bomac,

So I guess you'd prefer me to rely on news channels like the BBC and Al-Jazeera, right? because everyone knows that they are true paragons of honest journalism.

Israel fakes: BBC Gaza correspondent tweets old photo of dead child killed in Syria

I promise you right now in front of this entire community that if you can prove to me that Fox News has ever deliberately released a story that wasn't true (and they didn't publish a rettraction after), I will from here on in not say one more word about them on this board.....AND I will rethink my attitude towards them.

During this time of crisis, Fox News has been practically the only news channel that has reported fairly about the situation.

In the meantime, here's what happened to us today - half an hour away from my office......

http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7...309791,00.html

Israel accepting a cease fire now would be exactly like a storekeeper paying protection money to the mob to prevent them from bombing his business. Sure it buys him some peace and quiet but in the end he pays heavilly for it and the thugs keep coming back again and again to take their payment.

What I want is for law enforcement to come and put those thugs away for good. Any agreement which enables Hamas to remain in power and in control is totally unacceptable because we know they will be back....just like cockroaches - you spray and spray but you can't get rid of them. Well, since up to now a can of RAID hasn't worked I guess it's time to send in the exterminators with the big tanks to do the job.
Hamas cannot be allowed to remain where they are - they must be eradicated by any means necessary not only for OUR sake but mainly for the Palestinians who are enduring terrible suffering because of them.

By the way, Remember what I said about if Mexico had targeted NYC? Well, apparently my hero Glenn Beck was thinking the same thing - here's what HE had to say - I humbly ask that you take 5 minutes to listen.

Glenn's special message for Israel - YouTube
