A Ray of Hope

Naomi Ragen shares a wonderful hospital encounter between writer Mike Levine, a freelance journalist living in Israel since 1985, and an Arab doctor (who was actually the patient) and his family. This short article is must reading. It is filled with hope, but also illuminates something very scary on the horizon.

That's incredible, and he makes such a good point- why is this sort of thing never briadcasted to the world?

Probably because it doesn't fit the virtual narrative MSM is trying to construct of the situation.

That is really great.

And Ms. Roman(a), there's a saying in journalism: Buildings not on fire don't get reported on.

It's quite an encounter, but not one anyone wants to complicate. People prefer a simpler story, a story of absolutes.

It's time to face the fact that there is a type of gang culture built up in Palestine, and that culture is its own trap. Ireland faced the same situation.
