    Israel retaliates after Gaza rocket attacks

    This is the real story:
    The Israeli attacks, mostly from the air on a clear, bright day, were aimed at stopping rocket fire from Gaza into Israel, especially after the large city of Ashkelon, 10 miles from Gaza, came under fire from more advanced, Katyusha-style rockets smuggled in from Iran.
    But the anti-Israel mainstream media reports it like this:

    At Least 45 Killed in Israeli Strikes in Gaza

    Israeli aircraft and troops attacked Palestinian positions in northern Gaza on Saturday, killing at least 45 Palestinians, 19 of them civilians, and wounding more than 100 in the deadliest day of fighting in more than a year.

    Israeli air strikes killed 26 terrorists is the story. The 19 civilians were colateral damage, but the way it's written, it makes it sound like Israel was intentionally going after civilians.

    Perhaps you prefer to get it from israeli resources.

    2 IDF soldiers, 56 Palestinians die in Gaza clashes

    Deputy Defense Minister Matan Vilnai went as far as threatening a "shoah,"
    the Hebrew word for holocaust or disaster. The word is generally used to refer to the Nazi Holocaust, but a spokesman for Vilnai said the deputy defense minister used the word in the sense of "disaster," saying "he did not mean to make any allusion to the genocide."

    Hamas will therefore have to concentrate its efforts not only on the Israeli offensive or on getting the support of the Arab countries, but mainly on shattering the Israeli definition of this war - from one directed against a terrorist organization to a full-fledged war on the entire Palestinian people.

    I am outraged that the US mainstream media slants stories to make it look like the Palestinians are innocent victims (albeit it's feigned outrage).

    Israel attack Palestinians...Palestinians attack Israel
    One side drops bombs from the air, the other side sends in a suicide bomber.
    Same story different day.
    At this point I think its unrealistic and biased to take sides.
    Its such a cluster**** I cant identify whos right and whos wrong anymore.
