Children killed on a Gaza beach, Palestinian deaths now over 200 with Israeli deaths numbering only one – the mainstream media is in full anti-Israel mode, as it always is whenever Israel acts to defend itself against the relentless jihad that is determined to destroy the Jewish state. But its attempts to demonize Israel and portray the Palestinians as innocent victims of Israeli aggression founder on the facts, as they always have in the past. The question is increasingly becoming that of whether the mainstream media has any actual interest in the facts. Here are seven that mainstream “journalists” are overlooking:

7. Palestinians cheer as Gaza rockets fly toward Israeli population centers.

Reuters reported that “West Bank Palestinians cheered on Saturday as Hamas militants fired the largest salvo of rockets yet on the Tel Aviv area since the start of the recent escalations.”

This is to be expected from a culture that celebrates death – and the Hamas statelet in Gaza certainly does that. A Muslim child preacher once taunted those he has been taught to hate most: “Oh Zionists, we love death for the sake of Allah, just as much as you love life for the sake of Satan.” This taunt is derived from the Qur’an: “Say, ‘O you who are Jews, if you claim that you are allies of Allah, excluding the people, then wish for death, if you should be truthful.’” (62:6)

And if the Jews won’t wish for death, the Palestinians will wish it upon them.
