Jewish Children Have Value; Palestinian Children - not

On Christmas Day, this news item:

Israeli serviceman shoots 5yo Palestinian in the face 

Did think it worthy of reporting? I scanned for the next several days and there is no mention of this.

Let's do a thought experiment: If an Israeli 5-year old had been attacked and harmed like this, would not treat it as headline news?? Probably, it would.

Just as CBC ignored the Israeli car that killed a 5 year old in the West Bank and gave headline coverage to the Jewish child killed by car by a Palestinian in Jerusalem just a week later, it is only news when Jewish children are hurt.

Is it really just a coincidence that all the people responsible for so-called "journalist ethics" at are Jewish, and this kind of imbalanced coverage is happening???
