Israel's New "Offensive" in Gaza

CBC's total failure to provide context and balance to events in Israel-Palestine makes this article as misleading as all the rest. It implies strongly that Israel is responding legitimately to attacks on itself, and completely ignores the violent incursions into The West Bank made by Israel just before the rocket barrage began. So Israel is responding, not the Palestinians responding to Israeli abuses. This is simply nonsense.

Also CBC tries to create a kind of equivalency between the tiny Hamas rockets and Israel's powerful military. Yes, some Israelis are frightened and some inconvenienced, but Palestinians are helpless and they are dying again. How can this be equivalent?

Again CBC is reporting as if it is an organ of the Israeli Government. How can this be explained?
