Tendentious head lines in Vårt Land

Vårt Land claims to be “balanced” in its coverage of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict. Evidence would suggest  otherwise, as can be seen in choice of words for head line in story below and the fact that there has been no mention at all about the rocket from Gaza that landed smack in the middle of a neighborhood in Ashkelon?


Israeli air strikes against targets on the Gaza Strip
A three -year-old Palestinian girl was killed in an Israeli air strike on the Gaza Strip Tuesday , according to medical sources told AFP .

The same source reports that three of the girl’s relatives were wounded in the attack . A fourth person is also injured , according to another medical source in Gaza.

The attacks against several targets in the Gaza Strip Tuesday came as a response to a sniper , according to the Israeli military killed a civilian Israeli man who was about to repair the security fences along the border between Israel and Gaza. The man is the first Israeli  who are killed in the border area of more than one year.

The air attacks Tuesday were directed against two military training camps run by Hamas. The girl who was killed was supposedly near by one of these camps , reports Reuters .

And also, if they had ventured past their copy and paste journalism, they could easily have found out that the murdered Israeli was  22-year-old Saleh Abu Latif from the predominantly Bedouin city of Rahat, was working between Nahal Oz and Kfar Aza as a civilian employed by the Israeli Defense Ministry on repairs to a section of the Israel-Gaza border fence damaged in last week’s storm.

Lazy journalism is always bad journalism…

    Chrismast with eyes of a Christian is Jews that still take a eye for a eye and are babaric and need a savior.

    I was suppriced when they spoke on NRK that it has to be ok for non Christians to perform Christians song. Talk about apartheid, do Christians want lower quality on music just to have it perform by Christians?

    That VL are Jew friendly what kind of beer glasses had the Jew on that made that hypotesis? Its a Christian news that write for Christian readers in general from the free churches her in Norway. Or the lost teen tribe of Israel to put it more on the map.

    Norwegian, another group of the lost tribe pf Menashe has recently landed in Israel.

    You can check this out on the excellent Israel National News blog Arutz7. These people have been living in north east India and have kept the Jewish customs and regulations as from the times of the expulsion. How wonderful to see Jews who have kept their dreams alive and even more so, when one family was welcomed by a family member of the uniform of the IDF

    Have a happy and rejoice how Israel will take in Jews of all exterior cultures, colour and nationality. Such fantastic news.
