Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast strongly condemned Israeli attacks and atrocities, saying:

"We believe one of the objective of these crimes is covering up the domestic problems of the Zionist regime."

Syria also denounced what it called "barbaric Israeli crimes." It called on the international community to condemn them. Condolences were extended to the families of victims. Arab solidarity is needed. So is worldwide support for a people victimized by Israeli savagery. 

US television so far ignored it. Print media reports one-sidedly support Israel. Naked aggression is called self-defense. On November 14, The New York Times headlined "Another Israel-Gaza War?" saying:

"No country should have to endure the rocket attacks that Israel has endured from militants in Gaza, most recently over the past four days. The question is how to stop them permanently."

Blaming Israel's victims is official editorial policy. Hamas and other resistance groups are condemned for defending themselves against savage Israeli attacks.

At the same time, The Times called another full-scale ground war "especially risky." Concern isn't about mass killing and destruction. Cast Lead didn't "solve the problem," it said.

The unexplained problem is millions of Palestinians wanting to live free in their own country, on their own land. They want occupation harshness ended. They want Israeli aggression condemned and punished. They want long denied equity, justice and freedom.

Hamas is Palestine's legitimate government. The Times calls it "a dangerous adversary that may never accept Israel's right to exist." 

It won't ever accept Israeli belligerence and oppression. Nor do millions of Palestinians and worldwide supporters. The Times and other media scoundrels won't explain. 

Haaretz did no better. It editorialized irresponsibly. "Calm thing down," it said. Assassinated Hamas leader Ahmed Jabari "dedicated his life to war against Israel." Killing him tells Hamas to choose "more moderate" officials.

Southern Israeli security "became impossible in recent days." Gaza rocket attacks threaten residents, said Haaretz. Calming things down depends on pointing fingers the right way.

Hamas, other resistance groups, and all Gazans are victims. Israel provocatively committed aggression. Days of bombing, shelling, and killing were premeditated. Self-defense is inviolable.

Responsible journalists should explain it. Running cover for lawlessness is unconscionable. So is global community silence. 

International law obligates world leaders to condemn crimes of war and against humanity. It's long past time Israel was held fully accountable.
