Consider today's interesting NBC news headline:
Note the use of the term "Assasinates
" - not killed or some other euphemistic apologist term. Of course this is not FOX news but still....
On a somewhat related note, despite all the one sided pro Israel propaganda in the US media, younger Americans are surprisingly much more likely to sympathize with Palestine than Israel compared to their older generations.
For 65+ age group, 60% sympathize with Israel and 9% with Palestine.
For 50-64 age group, 56% with Israel and 9% with Palestine.
For 30-49 age group, 47% with Israel and 15% with Palestine.
For 18-29 age group, 44% with Israel and 22% with Palestine.
Survey was conducted by the Pew Research Center.
So for 65+ folks, for every 6 Israel sympathizer there's only 1 Palestine sympathizer, while for 18-29 age group, for every 2 Israel sympathizer there's 1 Palestine sympathizer. Things are changing although it's gone unnoticed. At this rate who knows where things will stand in 20 years.
