-- and move on because -- This year.
To talk about -- -- looking at bias in the media and something we're gonna get into with that greater depth here later in the hour.
Is the war in Gaza as we bring -- in Cal Thomas.
I wanna talk about the a disparity there in the disparity in treatment of Israelis and the Palestinians.
And not one thing that's been pointed out.
It Islamic militants.
Always played of the camera that was really something that was started in late in the Lebanese civil war that fire from the mosques the counter fire would come back -- -- they -- -- fishy that the mosque.
And that I spent a lot of time and guys have seen in a million times but people -- to the cameras and we got an incident where CNN either rough played along.
Or or they got snookered right.
Exactly right I'm -- compare this in my column tomorrow of the movie Groundhog Day no matter how many times that happens -- the same scenario over again Israel puts up with rocket after rocket terrorist attack after terrorist attack.
Longer than any other nation would put up with this kind of behavior then finally -- -- -- -- and strikes -- the world wakes up.
-- everybody's condemning Israel.
Out of the UN and Arab world leaders say now we have to have restraint on both sides as just a predator and the -- -- morally equivalent and then of course the media right hand and the Palestinian side has all of these scenes ready for them didn't take especially the BBC which is very hostile all things Israelis you -- having been there and I don't we -- scenes of people who are allegedly.
Wounded or killed because some of those nasty mean -- sooner the end in Israel.
The video you're talking about unseen matter where Anderson Cooper got to sandbag was -- this man who claimed to have been wounded and then later was going to be walking around perfectly OK and Cooper had a long career and and and generate traction for the wrong video so this kind of stuff goes well all the time in every war and every terrorist act.
And it never changes Israel's always the bad guy the Palestinians -- the victims even though they hide their missiles within civilian areas knowing that when Israel strikes back you're gonna get some collateral damage.
You know -- there are times when I think it is willful certainly on the part of the Islamic militants.
They know what they're doing they don't have the military might to go up against Israelis and so they use the media as a weapon.
And if -- lets hope it doesn't happen but it seems unavoidable if there's a ground invasion there will be terrific civilian casualties horrific civilian -- out.
And in the day of electronic media whoever looks more pathetic on camera wins particularly when you're dealing with a sympathetic media -- wrong.
-- -- you're absolutely right and I -- as -- cynicism part of the strategy and has spent the other thing that the media -- as they always accept the notion either outright or subtly that all that what is necessary for peace to break out in the region is for Israel to do more while Israel has done more over many decades given -- landed seized for its own security.
Hundreds of terrorists in exchange for a single captured armed Israeli soldier it is every time it gives it does this it doesn't get more PC gets more war.
Most of the media were ecstatic when.
A relinquish Gaza I was not one of those people who are static are -- the time it's a big mistake you don't have to be prophets and old testament prophet to predict what's gonna happen the terrorists are gonna movies are gonna fire rockets at Israel and that's what happened and opinionated on yesterday Aurilia -- to believe the opposite.
He's done exactly that and cal -- -- -- -- I've got to record their coach net your memorable little of the last time not operation cast lead as it was called.
Wrapped up the goal was supposed to be close down smuggling tunnels and stop the rocket fire.
Smuggling tunnels are working we know that because the rockets are coming in and the rockets are still coming out so that -- successful if you want to talk about more.
About the media coverage of what's going on in Gaza apple.
