Don't trust the NY Times

I saw this headline, Hamas Fires Rockets Into Israel, Ending 16-Month Truce , and then looked again, certain I had been hallucinating.

The Arabs from Gaza have been firing rockets into Israel daily for weeks if not months!

The communities near Gaza have sustained more than 500 rocket attacks since Israel withdrew from Gaza in August 2006, said Moyal. He estimates that more than 3,000 rocket attacks have been launched against the area since April 2001.

It's obvious that such a "mistake" is not unintended; it's part of a systematic effort to re-write the news to fit its political agenda. It's totally constant with the fact that The New York Times ignored last summer's prayer gathering at the kotel, even though more than a half a million Jews, 10% of the Jewish population of Israel came to pray that Disengagement would be cancelled. Instead of being front page headlines, it wasn't mentioned at all. Actually, they distorted the protest movement to give the impression that it was a tiny, insignificant fringe element.

I love the "end truce" comments, however they are written. Either I'm going "what truce where?" or they are accusing Israel of ending the truce (calm, whathaveyou) in response to some attack or another.

Yeah, they are making no bones about their lies, but people just still repeat the tired lines.

My husband said the same thing. OTOH the Jerusalem Post used the same language that Hamas is ending the truce, so they may be taking responsibility for the rockets and other attacks now. Bad all the way around. I will consider this post for HH.

The lies we read in the foreign papers are meant to mirror the same goyish culture we Jews have adopted and even cherish. Aslong as Jews want to continue this charade, the goyim will continue theirs.
