The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

Selective Outrage Syndrome

When news began to break a handful of years back that there may be something going on underneath the Temple Mount / Al-Aqsa Mosque compound that was destroying the history that lay quietly inside the mountain, it was quickly buried and forgotten in the mainstream media.

Contrast that with today, when a similar storyline becomes near-front-page news.

Can you figure out why?

In the space of one day, a small archaeological dig in Jerusalem's Old City became a rallying call aimed at uniting Palestinians against Israel. The dig — a few waterlogged sandbags and black buckets of earth behind aluminum walls — is meant to prepare the way for a new pedestrian walkway up to one of the world's most explosive holy sites, the compound known to Jews as the Temple Mount and to Muslims as the Noble Sanctuary.

How anti-Israel can you get? The media is so biased that they don't even care any more. But then, most of their readers and listeners are to ignorant to know the difference.

Unfortunately, ignorance is not bliss for Israel.
