Truth about Israeli casualties is being ignored in this war

By Barbara Amiel

Frankly, were I the Israelis, I wouldn't bother with a semi-effective job of keeping the press out of the war zone. I'd offer directions -- the war is down that street, ma'am -- and see how the press likes finding itself in crossfire or booby-trapped buildings.

The media seem to have taken the vocabulary of a "theatre" of war literally, as George Jonas points out in his Ottawa Citizen column, and believe this is a production in which they should have a lead role. Never mind that many of them have been doing the work of Goebbels without bothering to wear the brown uniform identifying their agenda.

How do you say 'media
bias' in Hebrew?

By Joel Mowbray

In a recent lead of a Page 1, above-the-fold story, the Washington Post stunningly announced that Israeli forces were pulling out of two "conquered" West Bank towns. Conquered?

Is the bias of the Post -- and other media -- so thoroughly ingrained that it can nonchalantly bandy about brazen words uttered only by fierce Palestinian partisans? Going town-by-town in the disputed territories to dismantle Arafat's terrorist infrastructure in a defensive effort can hardly be considered in the ilk of Spanish conquistadors plundering to acquire new land.

Holy sanctuary or terrorist shield?
By Diana West

A visit to Jerusalem's Temple Mount in the fall of 2000 by Ariel Sharon was enough to kick off this second Palestinian war of terror on Israel known as the Intifada. Or so the legend goes.

In fact, as even Palestinian Authority spokesman Imad Al-Faluji has stated on more than one occasion, Palestinian military action against the Jewish state was planned long before Sharon's "provocative visit" to Judaism's most holy site, which adjoins a site revered by Muslims as Haram-as-Sharif.

But imagine: If a mere day trip by Sharon into the vicinity of an Islamic holy site -- which, frankly, as Islamic sites go, ranks way below your Meccas and your Medinas -- could be considered reason enough to go to war, what about the armed Palestinian occupation, now into its second week, of one of Christianity's most sacred sites, the Church of the Nativity?
