Turning Rocket-Fire into Fibs, Fabrication and Fraud at Reuters

...Reuters creates the false impression that the Israeli victims of this terror are somehow partly to blame, that the terrorism isn’t really terrorism, and that Israel’s highly restrained response was somehow heavy-handed or provocative. This kind of irresponsible journalism emboldens terrorists, giving them an impression that the world will not notice, or care, about their aggression. The end result of this irresponsible journalism is a greater risk of even more human tragedy: for Israelis and Palestinians alike.
