As reported below, the Israeli army killed seven Palestinian youngsters in a strawberry field yesterday. Most news outlets have focused on Abu Mazen's verbal response in calling Israel the "Zionist enemy". The Guardian. , via Cobal Urquhart, decided to firm up on Israel's hasty excuse for the murders. Accordiing to Urquhart, the youngsters, aged 11 to 17, were "killed in crossfire". I have looked up - "zionist enemy" "abu mazen" - on google news and many English language news sites have picked up on the story. At the time of writing this, not one, not British, not American, not Israeli, refers to "crossfire". No reporter, it seems, will stoop as low as The Guardian. in covering up for what was an Israeli massacre.
