Aftenposten sure has an interesting way of reporting on Israel. No word what so ever on the rocket rain that fell over southern Israel last weekend, during the last days of the High Holidays (even anti-Israel news outfit Reuters managed to get that story…), nor have they bothered to follow up with the latest development bv , that Israeli’s living in the South have been advised to stay within 15 seconds from a bomb shelter. And really, what it this business with insisting on calling terrorists ‘militants’. They would throw a fit and hiss and spit if anybody suggested that that awful creature, ABB, is a mere militant. But apparently Palestinians have got a free pass to blow themselves and anybody else they feel like dragging along to to bits in an untimely death without any critical press coverage.
