All the Israeli Propaganda Fit to Print

Here is the headline on August 24:

Renewed Israeli airstrikes signal escalation in fight with Hamas

This is perfect Israeli propaganda. CBC says Israel, the country, is fighting Hamas, the political party.

The reality is that Israel the country is not fighting a political party, it is fighting an occupied territory - the occupied country of Palestine.

Israel wants to pretend they are fighting a political entity, but they are killing Palestinians who voted, democratically, for the Hamas political party.

Why does CBC let Israel write their headlines for them?

If the entity being fought in Gaza is just a political party, then for balance (something alien to CBC on this issue) they should write that Likud, the elected Israel government, is fighting Hamas.
