CBC continually tries to pretend that there is some form of equality of firepower between Israel and Palestinians, or even tries to pretend that Palestinians are bigger and therefore a terrible threat, as in the following today:
"Palestinian militants had fired 460 rockets and mortars into Israel in a 24-hour period, while the Israeli military carried out airstrikes on 160 Gaza targets. Seven Palestinians, including five militants, were killed. In Israel, one person was killed in a rocket strike and three were critically wounded."
The truth is that Israel is a thousand times stronger and the Palestinians are almost helpless.
Somehow it is an unbearable travesty when one Israeli is killed, but later in the article there is virtually a throw-away line about a 20-year old Palestinian fisherman being killed on the beach near the border. Killing unarmed, helpless Palestinians is so routine, even when butchered in cold blood, it is only worth a throw-away line.
