When rockets fall and no one cares

Comment

Media reports which only show Israeli retaliation to the rockets that have been shot at its civilians, make it look like Israels actions came for no real reason. As if they were just someones whim.

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. Im not making this up Its a true story. If you dont believe me, look: Reuters reported it.

So how come you havent heard about it? Why didnt it make any real sound? Thats a really good question. For some reason, if you look for a headline about it on the big news sites you wont 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, its even worse: I found stories only about the Israeli retaliation to the rockets that have been shot at its civilians, making it look like Israels actions came for no real reason. As if they were just someones whim.
