The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

Iranian Peaceplanes

Reuters can never seem to restrain itself from saying "Israeli warplanes" every waking moment, yet somehow, in the alternate universe of Tehran, the wire news agency can't seem to spot good old-fashioned warmongering as captured by stringers on the ground:

An Iranian hardliner registers his name as a volunteer to fight against the Israeli troops [Ed.:—In other words, to "make war" on Israel—right?] in Gaza, during a rally in Tehran December 30, 2008. The rally was held to condemn the Israeli attacks on Gaza. REUTERS/Morteza Nikoubazl (IRAN)

One wonders why Reuters sees fit to live by such a double standard?

Would modern Reuters editors have drawn such distinctions back during World War II? Because from where I'm sitting, the parallels are fairly stunning.

i would still like to know where the condemnation for Hamas' decades long attacks on Israel are?

I like to know where the calls for Hamas to ceasefire are? Instead of blaming Israel as an agressor, when they are clearly defensive.

I just wish the US administration was not so wishy-washy. they claim to support Israel but then demand Israel stop protecting itself. They need to come out and say, loudly, "What can we do to help you WIN".
