This Ongoing War..

We're not the first to report this. Still it's quite remarkable how very little attention the brand-name news-reporting businesses around the globe are letting their consumers know how manipulated the news coming out of Gaza is, and especially about the way Hamas holds Gaza's population hostage to its human-shield strategy.
Isra Al-Modallal is a 24 year-old woman whose job today, literally, is to help Hamas change its public image. Her roots give her a boost. Born like so many self-styled Palestinian Arabs (Arafat among them) in Egypt, she attended high school in Bradford, England, the city of half a million people whose parliamentary representative Galloway, in a video-recorded rant ten days ago, embarrassingly declared it "an Israel-free zone". Living for some years in the UK, she says, was useful in helping her "to understand Western culture", for which we now have the evidence.
