My heart goes out for the dead Palestine people and also for the dead Israelis. War is never an answer but have you noticed how since the war started back up in Palestine - the news agencies reporting these Palestine atrocities appear to be one sided? Why is that?

Palestine dead is just over 1,000 - what is the body count in Syria? Why isn't the world screaming their heads off about the atrocities in Syria or Libya or Iraq like they are doing in Palestine?

Whatever happened with the shot down jet liner MH-17? Nothing and nothing will happen. 298 murdered people not two weeks ago but Palestine wounded are shown on TV every ten minutes.

The UN can quickly jump up and demand the fighting to stop between Israel and Palestine (calling it a massacre) and make real pushes for force meanwhile around the world the UN does not use that same type of zealous attitude in other war torn countries.

Clearly you can see an agenda between the fighting of Palestine and Israel?

Why is it that Palestine gets all of the attention meanwhile the killing (often worst) in other regions do NOT get the same press time as the Palestine? Every time!

What do you think?

They are not news agencies as much as they are propaganda outlets - designed to deliver "news" to your TV and ram it down your throat to the point that you are distracted - deliberately.

Same answer as above - Agenda driven Propaganda - get everyone really pissed and full of hate, then control is easy, as is war.

Love is hard, hate is easy - people are more than happy to allow the TV to dictate their views on things.

Sad really

I think these people are overgrown children. On both sides.

And sometimes you just have to let bad little boys duke it out. Last kid standing is king of the jungle gym.

At this point, I see no reason why "peace" is still considered a viable option for these retards. They want to annihilate each other? Let them annihilate each other.

I believe it has to do with the fact that a more developed nation is inflicting these deaths as opposed to another country doing it to themselves.

Can the Jews be blamed for the war in Syria or Libya or Iraq? If they cannot be blamed then the Anti Jewish propaganda machine is not interested.

Absolutely.

And then we have some people here who show their "humanity", not so much because they actually care for those people who are involved, but because of their hatred towards some other country.( hm, I don't know, like Israel, Russia)

Since I'm not an English native speaker, is it better to call those people ignorant or hypocrite? Or both?

They have received coverage. It's mostly to do with the 24-hour news cycle:


The 24 hour news cycle (or 24/7 news cycle) refers to 24-hour investigation and reporting of news, concomitant with fast-paced lifestyles. The vast news resources available in recent decades have increased competition for audience and advertiser attention, prompting media providers to deliver the latest news in the most compelling manner in order to remain ahead of competitors. Television, radio, print, online, and apps for news all have many suppliers who want to be relevant to their audiences and deliver news first.

en.wikipedia.org...

Simply put, the news cycle is constantly running, so the media is always on the edge, ready to report on breaking news. You will find that most major outlets continue to focus on the stories, so long as it gives them an audience, and an edge over competitors. When one story becomes obsolete, or another one occurs, the news cycle will proceed to devour the next event. You will notice that with the 24-hour news cycle, the media will focus on one major story for a couple of days (or weeks, even), until another breaking news story occurs. For example:

ISIS invades Iraq ->

Israel bombards Gaza ->

MH17 crash ->

Israel invades Gaza ->

And on, and on, and on, and on.

---

The events in Syria, Iraq and Libya have been reported on. It's just that with the speed of which the news cycle runs, one would be easily forgiven if they missed it.

Overall, it's not that the media hasn't reported on it. It's just that the media has reported on it, and has since moved on.

I'd absolutely agree with you except the part you say love is hard and hate easy.
I find love extremely easy, the hate is much harder to achieve, this is why the huge propaganda machine runs overtime convincing us to hate someone we don't even know or understand, it also teaches us that some parents really don't care about their children.
We are all the same, except for a few power hungry psychopaths that every time are able to divide us then conquer us.

More toward the OP, why should we just accept any killing on a grand scale at all?
But we have had the massacre in Palestine for a bit longer than the other conflicts.
It also could be argued that all of these other conflicts originate from one little spot in the world via a nasty little regime.

Zionism is not Judaism and assuming everyone against Israels actions are Anti Jew is idiotic. Most Zionist's are Atheist's, how are people Anti Jewish when condemning Zionist actions?

True. And they know that the viewing audience has a very short attention span. There are stories that SHOULD be covered continually and get attention (like Fukushima) but those are pushed aside in order to bring the next attention getting headline so the audience will stay tuned in. $$$$

The founder of Zionism (Theodore Herzl) was an Atheist and despised Religious Jews yet had this amazing vision of bringing them back to Palestine... Zionism is Political and nothing more. The two are contrary to each other and should never be used to describe each other.

The Palestinians have been working to perfect their public relations machine since the P.L.O. hijacked their first airplane in 1968. It's been a few years, but they have largely achieved their goals.

If the people in Tibet had half the sympathy and support of the Palestinians, there would still be a nation listed as 'Tibet' to find on a world map. As it is, you can't find one. Unlike Israel, China didn't even hold their stolen land as occupied. They simply annexed it outright and erased it from maps as if it had never existed.

There are many peoples across the world who need sympathy but none more skilled at playing the P.R. game than the Palestinians.

First of all, no one screaming. Second of all, I don't know where you've been but all those ME nations and their problems have been and continue to be discussed here. One only needs to go to the ME forum to see this. The discussion of the Gaza war is because it's the most recent event at the moment so it will dominate ATS's ME dialogue, for now.

But it's not only here on ATS that these problems are addressed. For all the UN's faults, if you think they are ignoring all the problems in the world you'd be mistaken.

Agreed. This is not a conflict between rebel groups or militias. This is Israel, an economically and militarily powerful country, attacking a smaller relatively defenseless nation.

Truth be told, we have come to expect more from the world's so called leading democracies. We don't expect them to kill indiscriminately, we expect restraint and for cooler heads to prevail. We would hope that leaders would stake their political careers on upholding our most cherished ideals, and not give in to the calls to arms often shouted by the masses, and other right wingers at times like these. Nelson Mandela and Mahatma Ghandi put their reputations on the line, and stood for what they believed even in the face of a majority, calling for conflict.

South Korea demonstrated this after the sinking of the Cheonan, India after the Mumbai bombings. Sure this had a lot to do with the threat of Nuclear retaliation from their respective "enemies", but if that's all that stands between war and peace, then that does not say much for our so called leading democracies.

This deserves the press, if only to highlight the fragility of our world politics and how fast we could let it all fall to pieces.

Funny how you totally ignore that Hamas terrorists have been firing thousands of rockets at Israel - but the fact that Hamas did that does not fit your agenda!

The Palestinians are under very different rule between the two sides of Palestine.

The leaders in the West Bank are in Cairo, trying to establish a peace agreement for future stability in their land and Israel.

The leaders of Hamas in Gaza are refusing attempts at peace and are very determined to continue a war they can never win in any military sense of the term.

Israel is at war with only one of those two and only the ruling party at that. When Hamas joins their compatriots who were run out and killed in Egypt, perhaps the efforts of the PLA to forge a lasting peace for a true State will have some hope.

I think what the coalition did to Iraq/Afghanistan is far worse than Israel/Gaza/Ukraine put together...ESPECIALLY since a lot of the evidence to invade Iraq was fabricated!

www.motherjones.com...

Plus, the US shot down a passenger plane and didnt even offer an apology..
