Gaza, The Media and the ‘Terror Tunnels’


Israeli and US control over the media agenda for what is happening in Gaza has been masterful. Did anyone see CNN reporting live from the ‘Terror Tunnels’ the war was started to prevent. Apparently they are hidden avenues into Israel for the terrorists.

The reality is that they are more about smuggling than anything else and in a state cut off from the rest of world by its neighbors one of the only ways of getting goods in.

This blogger asked for evidence of terrorists using the tunnels for that purpose and a few accusations but no evidence at all was forthcoming. You think you’d need more than that for it to be legal to use your US supplied weapons to turn a neighbouring country into rubble?
