Israeli airstrikes on Gaza.

Among those killed in the Israeli air strikes in the last two days was the 11-month-old son of a BBC Arabic Service cameraman in Gaza City.

air raids on Gaza

 BBC News and SKY News placing great emphasis on the three Israeli's being killed by rockets fired by "militants" from Gaza. Live interviews with Israeli government spokespersons, neighbours, police and emergency services at the scene, are filling the lead news slots and the reporters seem almost as hysterical as the people being interviewed.  There has been little, if any, mention of the eleven Palestinians including at least two children,  killed by Israeli airstrikes in the last 24 hours. No mention of the bombing of civilians and their homes and infrastructure in Gaza City.  So much for the balanced reporting of the British media who are resorting to type and perpetuating the Israeli/United States inspired myth that Israel is always the victim. Message to Tel Aviv and Netanyahu. Forget the peace process, you have never been interested in it anyway. Forget the two state solution to which you have only paid lip service while frantically building your illegal settlements. The only way forward now in a one state solution. That one state is called Palestine.
