Killing versus Kidnapping

CBC reported on the kidnapping of the three Israeli teenagers, but so far has not reported on the killing of two Palestinian teenagers which occurred as a result of the Israeli violent search for the missing teenagers.

The Israel army has run roughshod over the Occupied Territories, ostensibly in the search for the teenagers, actually brutalizing thousands of innocent Palestinians in the process. BBC reports that at least 1,000 homes have been invaded. They are kicking down doors, on the flimsiest of pretexts, and terrifying women and children by the thousands.

We do not know the fate of the three teenagers, but we do know that Israel's behaviour in this search is disgraceful and should be scorned by all right-minded people.

But CBC clearly thinks the KILLING of Palestinian teenagers by a brutal army attacking their homes, is less newsworthy than the DISAPPEARANCE (as yet unexplained) of Israeli teenagers.

If there is an doubt about CBC bias, this can certainly lay it to rest.
