Israeli War Deaths Go Largely Unnoticed

You know, Ismael hasn't been home in three weeks.

Hours after 60-year-old Fadia Jumaa and her two daughters, Samira, 31, and Sultana, 33, were killed by a Hizbullah rocket attack on their home in the Israeli-Bedouin village of Arab al-Aramshe, the international media has so far largely ignored their deaths.

But you're reporting it. So you noticed. Obviously this news outlet has a very low self-esteem and opinion of itself by not considering itself as a part of the media. These problems usually start at childhood.

The lack of coverage of the Israeli civilian war casualties stands in marked contrast to the swift response by many sections of the international media to reported Lebanese casualties.

Because focusing on the deaths of Islamic country's civilians and the controversy caused by such incidents sells more papers and rasies ratings. Why? Cause the world's fucked up that's why. And the world veiws Israel and Western nations as aggressors and spinning the news to make it seem a truth brings in money.
