Images the Media Fails to Report

While reports from Israel seem more and more designed to vilify Israel, images such as the ones in this video are rarely shown by the mainstream media.

Last month, a group of sick Palestinian children from the West Bank along with their parents traveled to the Jerusalem Zoo for a day. Their trip was organized by the Civil Administration and Hadassah where the children are receiving medical treatment.

Talking Points, Talking Points, Talking Points...

The following video represents a clear example of what politicians have become today. Zombies manipulated by political consultants, with calculated talking points and unable to answer a simple question.

The person interviewed is Ed Miliband, leader of the Labor Party in Great Britain, discussing the strikes taking place in his country.

OBAMA ADMINISTRATION PUTS ISRAEL ON LIST OF COUNTRIES THAT SUPPORT OR PROMOTE TERRORISM

The Obama administration has added Israel to a list of 36 ‘specially designated’ countries that have ‘shown a tendency to promote, produce, or protect terrorist organizations or their members.

The ‘specially designated country’ list is used by Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to screen detained foreigners with an extra step, called a “Third Agency Check.” Overall, the countries on the list are unsurprising, with two exceptions this year. Israel was not on the list in 2008, but now in 2011, it has been added. North Korea, on the other hand, was dropped from the list this year but was on it in 2008.

The Department of Homeland Security published the list of “specially designated countries” as an appendix to a publicly released report on May 11 report entitled “Supervision of Aliens Commensurate With Risk.”

As reported by CNS News, ICE Spokeswoman Gillian Christensen claims the creation of the list began at least seven years ago during the Bush administration, and ICE was not responsible for creating it. According to a written statement by Christensen:

“The U.S. does not and never has considered Israel to have links to terrorism, but rather they are a partner in our efforts to combat global terrorism. Countries may have been included on the list because of the backgrounds of arrestees, not because of the country’s government itself.”
There are only five countries on the list that do not have majority Muslim populations, and those countries have had serious internal problems with radical Muslim terrorist groups or insurgencies.

Here is the list posted by Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency (ICE):

Afghanistan
West Bank
Algeria
Bahrain
Oman
Bangladesh
Pakistan
Philippines
Egypt
Qatar
Saudi Arabia
Indonesia
Somalia
Iran
Sudan
Iraq
