CBC Unbalanced

Today's article on the Gaza situation was full of meaningless crap quoting Israeli sources. It ignores the real story completely, by pretending the murdered Palestinians were mostly Hamas, as if the killing of unarmed protestors of that political affiliation, is somehow OK.

And CBC always makes this statement:

Gaza has been controlled since 2007 by Hamas, an Islamist group that denies Israel's right to exist and has fought three wars with Israel in the past decade. 

CBC has no space to report on the medics and journalists killed and injured by Israeli snipers (killers), but they have space for this.

So what if Hamas denies Israel's right to exist? Israel not only denies, but makes it impossible for Palestine's right to exist. Does CBC qualify every reference to the Israeli Government by saying it is making a Palestinian State impossible? Why qualify Hamas with this, but give Israel a free pass?

To be balanced CBC should a;ways qualify references to Israel by noting the settlements campaign which is stealing the last vestiges of a possible Palestinian State.
