To the US MSM, it’s always the Palestinians who “started” it. This blindness comes from over-consumption of the Zionist narrative.
According to this narrative, it’s never the Palestinians responding to being dispossessed and caged into open air prisons, but the poor Israelis responding to “terror.”
It’s not the Palestinians upset at having their land forcibly “partitioned” out from underneath them in order to provide primarily European Jews a safe haven from persecution, it’s Zionists simply “defending themselves” against hordes who are attacking them for no apparent reason other than their “anti-Semitism.”
When it comes to “peace talks,” it’s not the Palestinians agreeing to part with nearly 90 percent of historic Palestine despite having been forcibly imposed upon all these decades, it’s the Israelis who are graciously parting with their land to these irrational and ungrateful natives.
What started out as a propaganda ploy and an effort to ease the consciences of the well-intentioned, has now transformed over time into the frame through which all news MUST be portrayed.
That is why this carefully crafted and nurtured narrative poses such an obstacle peace and should be exposed whenever and wherever it is spouted.
