Look at this headline. It is so typical:
Israel strikes Gaza sites in response to airborne 'arson kites'
Flaming kites and balloons launched from Gaza have destroyed forests, killed livestock, Israelis say
Israel is always responding. Israel is never provoking. The Palestinians are assumed to do nasty things for no reason whatsoever, except perhaps their untermenschen irrationality. The Israeli, the superior beings, are reluctantly forced to "respond".
It would be humorous, if this upside down reporting did not actually work at convincing people that the opposite of reality is the reality.
