9. Some headlines from Israel/Palestine that Americans don't see thanks to bias towards Israel

I mean bias in favor of Israel.


The Missing Headlines
Below are news items largely going unreported by US media, which are consistently Israeli-centric in their coverage. The main bureaus for CNN, AP, Time, etc. are located in Israel and are often staffed by Israelis. Many US journalists have ties to Israel: the son of the NY Times bureau chief is in the Israeli army; "pundit" Jeffrey Goldberg served in the Israeli military; Wolf Blitzer worked for the Israel Lobby. For more information on media coverage see our Media Bias section.


Gaza boy killed by Israel dreamed of becoming soccer player
Middle East Children Alliance - Hamid Younis Abu Daqqa, 13, always wore his Real Madrid shirt when he played soccer with his friends. He died wearing the same shirt, killed by Israeli forces before the second half of a game with friends could be finished. His father said Hamid would imitate Real Madrid star Ronaldo while playing in front of his Gaza home.


Israel To Illegally Seize Palestinian Lands Near Bethlehem
IMEMC - Under the pretext of “military considerations”, the Israeli army informed Palestinian residents of al-Fordaes village, near the West Bank city of Bethlehem, that it intends to seize large areas of their lands in al-Oqban area, the Palestine News Network (PNN) reported.


Israel plans to build 1,213 new illegal settlement homes on Palestinian land
Ma'an News - PLO leader Hanan Ashrawi on Tuesday condemned reported plans for Israel to construct new settlement units in occupied East Jerusalem and in Ariel in the West Bank. The Israel Land Administration on Monday published notices inviting bids from contractors to build on plots in Ramot and Pisgat Zeev, urban settlements that Israel has declared part of Jerusalem.


Israeli soldier that shot 10-year-old Palestinian in the head acquitted by courts
IMEMC - An Israeli Court in Lod acquitted Tuesday an Israeli soldier who shot and killed a Palestinian child during a nonviolent protest against the Annexation Wall in Ni’lin village, near the central West Bank city of Ramallah, in July 2008. The soldier admitted to firing two rounds of live ammunition at the child, 10-year-old Ahmad Mousa, leading to his death.
Sounds like this IDF soldier empathizes with US General Sherman who is quoted as saying that the only good Indian is a dead one.
