NPR’s Six-Day War Series — Agenda-Driven and Biased

BBC: Obstacle to Understanding on Jerusalem

The BBC News Web site's series about obstacles to peace in the Middle East finds one culprit: Israel. Terrorism and incitement to genocide are not part of the one-sided equation.

Guardian Defames Israel with False Apartheid Charges

A recent series of articles in the Guardian by Chris McGreal charges that Israel is an apartheid state similar to the old South Africa. According to the paper, "after four years reporting from Jerusalem and more than a decade from Johannesburg before that, the Guardian's award-winning Middle East correspondent Chris McGreal is exceptionally well placed to assess this explosive comparison."
