The headline is the problem- and it bears calling out.

Duly noted. I have modified to address your point.

Bullshit.

Same sort of headline for Turkey:

On Turkey's Syrian frontier, fears of a sectarian spillover

[Link: www.reuters.com...]

Which shows the following comment from you as pure bullshit:

As with the reporting of Turkey’s response to shelling from Syria a few weeks ago, the media’s coverage of this important statement by NATO’s Secretary General shows no concern about possible “spillover” or “escalation”.

Play the delusional "American media is bias against Israel" sympathy somewhere else.

re: #3 Destro

That didn't take long, did it. Typically, however, your response is factually and intellectually challenged.

Today's AP headline appeared only hours after Israel took limited action in response to shelling by a Syrian mortar battery. It specifically purports to report that Israel's response has raised concerns about spillover.

The Reuters headline you cite is neither temporally nor contextually analogous. First of all, the headline you cite appeared fully three weeks after the Turkish military began an extended artillery barrage against Syrian targets (to say nothing of the open secret concerning Turkish military assistance to those fighting against the al-Assad regime).

Second, neither the headline nor the article to which it was attached raises the spectre of "spillover" as a result of the Turkish military action. Rather, the Reuters piece addressed the concerns of residents in a region of Turkey long known for inter-communal tolerance that the sectarian strife in Syria will spill over into their quiet corner of the world:

(Reuters) - An influx of Syrians fleeing President Bashar al-Assad's military onslaught is stoking tension in an area of Turkey known for religious tolerance and setting Turks who share the Syrian leader's creed against their own government.

In the Turkish frontier province of Hatay, home to the Antioch of the Bible and a mix of confessional groups rare in an overwhelmingly Sunni Muslim country, Turks of Arab origin who share Assad's Alawite beliefs are increasingly critical of Ankara's open support for rebels fighting the Syrian leader.

The Syrian refugees, like the insurgents, are overwhelmingly Sunni Muslims, most of whom support the 19-month-old uprising, making for a combustible mix that echoes the increasingly sectarian nature of Syria's civil war.

While most Alawites said the conflict had not yet divided Hatay's indigenous communities, some fear reprisals and spoke of isolated incidents between Sunnis and Alawites.

Indeed, your example, if anything, only highlights the point of my original post. But thank you for playing, anyway.

Bullshit. The Turkish cross border incursions are reported on in real time. You can Google yourself.

[Link: www.telegraph.co.uk...]

Turkey shells Syria for sixth day

And the idea that the article you cite as biased is only biased in your biased mind. So I can't speak to how your mind concieves of reality but I am not reading any biase against Israel and what she did vs what Turkey did.

Is the American media pro Turkey and anti-Israel? Only if you are a wannabe freeper I guess.

re: #5 Destro

As predictable as the time told by a broken clock. Yawn.

Oh, and since you missed the point, as usual, you might want to look again at the latest headline you cited, which again proves my point by how it reported the event, compared to the reporting cited in my post.

re: #6 sliv_the_eli

The only peopel seeing a media conspiracy against Israel in the Syria conflict by the American press (which somehow is anti-Isreal in relation to Syria?) are you conspiracist mongering goofballs.

And yet there is only one person on this thread who has even mentioned the concept of a conspiracy. Go figure.

You've never understood what that's about, only that it offends you in some vague way, so it must be lashed out at.

Come to think of it, you've never understood what I was saying about that, either, only that I was in opposition to you somehow.

re: #10 sliv_the_eli

What else is it to be called other than a conspiracy if there is this pattern of American media being anti-Israel, which is the most ludicrous statement you can make.

American media, tends to be pro-Israel or more considerate of Israel if anything. Same with the media of Canada, of England, etc.

Maybe because you are super biased towards Israel you see any indication of less support than your own as being "anti-Israeli"?

re: #11 SanFranciscoZionist

You told me exactly what that was about. It was silly.
