1. More people need to be examining this disparity.

Its sad that our media is so unwilling to, you know, do "journalism" that when the Israel-Palestine coverage is discussed it almost always includes the caveat that "Israel has the right to defend itself". Does the lop-sided nature of the deaths in this conflict, especially the one currently underway, suggest 'defensive stance' to anyone?

Kudos to Stewart for once again covering the things that others avoid.

2. good on you Stewart. I loved the question "where are they supposed to evacuate to?"

showing where Gaza is on the map, makes it pretty clear, there's no where to escape.

4. Roger Waters

Did you read his letter to Neil Young? Waters called Israel a colonial apartheid regime. not sure how accurate that is but it is very inflammatory.
