Et tu, VOA? - Israel on Alert as Pro-Palestinian Activists Plan ‘Fly-In’
Israeli security forces are on high alert ahead of the arrival of a large group of foreign activists who oppose the occupation of the Palestinian territories.
Really? Even the “activists” never claimed to be protesting “occupation of Palestinian territories”. They claim to be protesting the legal sea blockade of Gaza. Where are these “occupied Palestinian territories”? Does the VOA realize that Israel performed a unilateral pullback from the entire Gaza strip years ago? Does whatever dimwitted journalism school dropout passing him/herself off as an editor know that much of the West Bank is under near-autonomous Palestinian control? And that no land has formally been deemed “Palestinian”? Historical facts flushed down the journalistic toilet by lazy government employees. By using this phraseology, without further definition, the VOA has allowed all of Israel to be deemed “occupied”. Nice work. I want my tax dollars back.
