I have Sympathy for the Devil, but not for Israel

One very nice thing about living overseas is that unlike in the US you are not subject to constant media bombardment praising every action of Israel and condemning all criticism of Israel as antisemitism.

Dear Mr. Pohl,
I do appreciate your work very much. But the posted headline is too confrontational. It is very undifferentiated. Of course the current conflict in the Middle East is very questionable, and it is legitimate to think it is wrong. But still, the headline is neither thoughtful nor intelligent. It is very confrontational and not solution-friendly.

Is there media anywhere in the world that has unbiased reporting? In Australia our reports tend to be pro-Palestinian.

thats true, but obviously its not an excuse to say that other media may also not be objective. I think we should all work at it.

Dr. Pohl, remember i wrote my paper on this conflict and i use all these stat. figures to explain how Gaza's economy suffered due to Israeli blockade. guess what, now it is ruined completely because of Israel... and i am not anti-semite just trying to be rational person here...
