The other day, a rocket fell in Israel. It was fired by Hamas in Gaza and fell into a civilian city, right next to a kindergarten, wounding a 16 year old girl. I’m not making this up It’s a true story. If you don’t believe me, look: Reuters reported it.
So how come you haven’t heard about it? Why didn’t it make any real sound? That’s a really good question. For some reason, if you look for a headline about it on the big news sites you won’t find it. Some of the headlines report tension on the border, some, like the Guardian for instance, report nothing at all, and on some, like CNN and BBC, it’s even worse: I found stories only about the Israeli retaliation to the rockets that have been shot at its civilians, making it look like Israel’s actions came for no real reason. As if they were just someone’s whim.
