Israel Protests the War
By Tali Shapiro at Jan 06, 2009
The Israeli mainstream media would have you believe that the majority of Israeli citizens
support the current war in Gaza. And that the ones that don't are a minority of kooks. Here are some heartening words from the Jewish Peace News blog:
"To read the English internet version of Haaretz of January 4th, you wouldn't know that some ten thousand marchers had protested their government's policy and attack on Gaza the night before in Tel Aviv or that earlier that day, many tens of thousands (some estimates have quoted 70 to 100 thousand), Jews and Palestinian Arab citizens of Israel, marched their protest through the Arab town of Sakhnin in the Galilee. They're not part of the reality constructed by Haaretz's English website."
