THERE ARE FOUR PRESENT QUESTIONS THAT MUST BE RAISED WITH RESPECT TO MEDIA COVERAGE OF ISRAEL, HAMAS, AND GAZA --
ESPECIALLY AS BOTH HAMAS AND FATAH ARE IGNORING NO OPPORTUNITY TO CRY THAT ISRAEL IS "MASSACRING" GAZA AND THAT ISRAEL IS PERPETRATING A "CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY":
(1) Is anyone asking, "What percentage of the death toll of Gazans is caused directly or indirectly by Hamas enforcement (including acts of murder) to maintain a civilian population (a) as cover for their ordinance and (b) as inevitable sympathetic martyrs?
(2) Is anyone asking, "What percentage of the Gaza population remains there voluntarily, because they support Hamas (and who therefore are actually combatants), even though they may appear to be non-combatants?"
(3) Is anyone asking, "Why is it, that Hamas has not established a population relocation program in order to evacuate non-combatants from the combat zone?"
(4) Is Israel asking, "Why is it, that all of a sudden the Israeli Military is being spoken of in the media (at least in the BBC and in NPR) as a "conscript" military?"
