In the aftermath of Israel's operation to prevent pro-Palestinian radicals from violating the naval blockade on the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip, media organizations are again focusing on Israel and its opponents in a way reminiscent of the onset of the second Palestinian "intifada."
Radical Europeans, far-left Americans and pro-Hamas Islamists may have little else in common, but they've come together for a week of agitprop called the "Freedom Flotilla" aimed at pressuring Israel to relax its naval embargo on Gaza. The question is will journalists report who the players really are and what they're up to?
Time.com senior editor Tony Karon wrongly suggests that U.N. Resolution 242 calls on Israel to withdraw to its 1967 boundaries. He cites the view of the Arab world and the "international community" to make his case, but ignores the explicit words of the resolution's drafters.
