How the media supports terrorism in the middle east
...In Iraq the enemy makes militarily insignificant attacks on non combatants in order to get media coverage. It appears that the media is a central character in the Palestinian strategy too. Then there are the media hoaxes they perpetrate.
“Lots of Qassams hit this city,” Shika said. “Most people killed by the Qassams live here.”
“How many rockets are hitting the city right now?” I said.
“Not as many today,” he said. “Because of the war in Lebanon.”
“What does Lebanon have to do with it?” I said.
“All the journalists forgot about us during the Lebanon war. So the terrorists are waiting for the media to come back before firing rockets again. They don’t want to waste those they have.”
