Gaza Flare-up: Netanyahu Resists Pressure for War, but Flames Getting Higher

However, the prime minister had to make it look like something was being done, in light of the fires that keep raging in Israeli border communities. The media and right-wing critics have already pushed Netanyahu into a military operation he didn’t want in the Gaza Strip, twice: Operation Pillar of Defense (2012) and Operation Protective Edge (2014). This time, he looked better prepared to stand firm in the breach, but not to take responsibility.

Hamas chief: ‘March of Return started and will not stop before we return’

Haniyeh removed the curtain from the mural for Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King and Nelson Mandela. This event was organised in commemoration of the 50th anniversary of Luther King’s assassination.

“On this day 50 years ago, one of the greatest men who fought for humanity was buried,” he said. “There is no difference between men because of skin colour or morality.”

He added: “We are talking about Martin Luther King, who was assassinated at the hand of hatred and racism on April 4, 1968 and was buried on April 9.” Martin Luther King’s goal “is consistent with our culture and principles.”

NPR verdreht die Tötung von 17 Palästinensern nach dem Drehbuch der israelischen Armee

Wie FAIR im Laufe der Jahre festgestellt hat (z.B. 8/14/01, 11/01, 2/5/02, 11/15/12, 10/10/14), vertritt NPR (National Public Radio – der US „Kultursender“) bei der Berichterstattung über die Angelegenheiten von Israel/Palästina standardmäßig eine pro-israelische Linie. Seine Korrespondenten leben fast immer in Westjerusalem oder in Israel selbst, sind selten Palästinenser oder Araber, und sie arbeiten konsequent daran, die Schuld für israelische Gewalt abzulenken – entweder indem sie die Schuld auf palästinensische Opfer abwälzen oder sie durch falsche Parität zerstreuen.
