The vileness of the liberal media has no bounds in Israel. Years ago I cancelled my free subscription to the International Harold Tribune which carried several pages of the Hebrew language Israel self-hating newspaper Ha'aretz translated into English. I could no longer take reading about how the terrorists who daily attacked Jerusalem and killed and maimed my neighbors, friends and co-workers were actually "militants."
Friday the editor of Ha'aretz was "outted" for advising Secretary Rice at a dinner-party for the "beautiful people" last time she was here, that the USA should "RAPE Israel." That quote has been reported as accurate by several who were present at the dinner and heard the words spoken. Not bad enough?
Over the weekend to young soldiers, friends who lived near each other in Kirat Arba near Hebron, together with a female friend went for a hike. Each soldier was from Top Elite IDF Commando Unit (the real deal!) They had their personal firearms with them because the hike was in area controlled by the murderous, hostile terrorist Palestinian Authority. The soldiers were ambushed and killed in the ensuing fire-fight (likely from running out of ammo). The entire country mourns these two elite members of the IDF who managed to save their female companion.
Today Ha'aretz published a story about the murders. The newspaper used the soldiers' deaths as a basis for a story about Jewish terrorists. Now perhaps folks will understand why I refused offers of free left-over copies of Ha'aretz as a donation to my beloved Jerusalem SPCA. I would not even use that rage to line the cages of the animals in our clinics!
Have a good week.
