A total of 19 Israelis and an American seminary student have been killed by Palestinian attacks, mostly stabbings, while at least 112 have been killed on the Palestinian side, including 75 people said by Israel to be attackers.
----Notice how CBC makes it clear Israelis were killed "by Palestinian attacks", but do not state clearly who killed the Palestinians who "have been killed". This is not by accident. CBC regularly avoids charging Israelis with the killing that they do, and tries to leave the wording ambiguous. Also doesn't the discrepancy of 112 Palestinians killed versus 19 Israelis need some clarification? Why so many attackers killed and so few victims?.
In the latest unrest, Israeli forces shot a young Palestinian woman Sunday after she allegedly attempted to stab a pedestrian in the West Bank.
The military said the woman was evacuated to a Jerusalem hospital. It did not say how close the woman got to her target.
-----Did the Israelis just shoot her or did they kill her? Also why repeat the allegation made by the Israelis without letting the Palestinians side speak? Palestinians claim that Israelis are killing people then planting knives on their bodies to justify the killings. This might help to explain the discrepancy between the numbers of attackers and the number of Israeli victims. It is only an allegation, but why are Israeli allegations always worth repeating and never the claims of Palestinians?
The incident occurred Sunday in Hebron, a frequent flashpoint of violence. Several hundred Israeli settlers live in heavily guarded enclaves in the city, which is home to 270,000 Palestinians.
-----Why call these people "settlers"? They are illegal colonizers who have severely disrupted the lives of the 270,000 Palestinians in Hebron. They are also amongst the most vicious racists and militants in the Israeli population. This wording suggests they are guarded and protected, but in fact, they victimize Palestinians at a rate one hundred times greater than they are attacked.
Israel says the violence is fuelled by a Palestinian campaign of lies and incitement. The Palestinians say it is the result of frustrations rooted in Israel's nearly 50-year occupation.
----Does the meaningless Israeli claim deserve to be placed before the highly reasonable Palestinian one, suggesting they have equal merit, or perhaps the Israeli one which comes first has more merit?
Also it is relevant to note what CBC does not deem worthy of reporting. In the last month, on two separate occasions, first a sister and then her brother, both young adults, were shot and killed on dubious grounds by Israelis. Two young people from the same family. Is it even imaginable that if two Israeli siblings were killed, in separate incidents, just weeks, apart that it would not be big news? No, it would be headline news for many days. But because they are Palestinian, it is not even worth mentioning. They are just 2 or the 112 killed in the last three months.
How can Canadians even begin to understand the plight of Palestinians and the racist brutality of Israel, if CBC refuses to tell the truth? Who is CBC working for?
CBC continues to publish news on Israel-Palestine that sounds as if it were drafted in Jerusalem. Can someone explain this?

I understand the powerful distrust of Iran that motivates those who believe the danger from that unpredictable and secretive regime is so life and death, so existential, that no compromise is possible.
Does this genius, Brian Stewart, not understand that the possibility exists that this whole claim of an existential threat to Israel from Iran MAY be fabricated to deflect from Israel's crimes? Is this not even worth mentioning? Of course, not. Not if you are working for Israel against Canadians.

Israeli settlers attack historic Church where Jesus broke bread
19 June 2015
The human rights and Palestine solidarity organisation BDS South Africa condemns yesterday's attack by 16 Jewish Israeli settlers on the Church of Multiplication of Loaves and Fish. Any attack on a religious site is unacceptable but this Israeli attack on a historic site of such importance to Palestinian Christians and Christianity more generally is reprehensible.
The Church of Multiplication of Loaves and Fish near the Sea of Galilee in Palestine-Israel is on the site where Christians believe Jesus Christ performed the biblical miracle of feeding 5000 people with five loaves and two fish. The Church stands in the destroyed Palestinian village of al-Tabigha, ethnically cleansed of its indigenous Palestinian inhabitants by Israeli forces in the 1948 Nakba. The village is where Jesus is said to have plied his trade as a carpenter.
According to reports, the church building suffered extensive damage, with the roof partly collapsed and stone walls charred. Several members of the clergy suffered smoke inhalation, and one 80-year-old monk was reportedly hospitalised. Several bibles and prayer books were also destroyed.
Some Israeli officials have criticised the attacks, however, analysts are skeptical suggesting that no action will be taken against the Israeli settlers.

"Israel and Egypt imposed the blockade on Gaza after Hamas violently seized the territory from forces loyal to the Western-backed Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas. Israel says the blockade is necessary to prevent Hamas from getting weapons and building militant infrastructure, while critics say it amounts to collective punishment.
Since its takeover, Hamas has fought three wars with Israel, including 50 days of fighting last summer in which thousands of Gaza buildings were either destroyed or damaged. Over 2,200 Palestinians, including hundreds of civilians, were killed during the war. On the Israeli side, 67 soldiers and six civilians were killed."
