Updated: CNN Conceals Islamic Jihad Casualties

Update: CNN has commendably inserted the relevant information into its article.

CNN posted an article at 6:19 am EDT this morning stating:

An Israeli airstrike killed two men in Gaza Thursday evening, while a mortar attack knocked out power at a border crossing into Israel, Israeli military officials and Palestinian security sources reported.

Palestinian sources said the Israeli airstrike targeted two men on a motorcycle west of Gaza City. The Israeli military could not immediately confirm the report. . . .

The attacks were the latest in a week-long round of violence that began with a series of attacks on Israelis that left at least seven civilians and one soldier dead. Israel has responded with attacks on what it called "terrorist infrastructure sites."

Nowhere does the article state that those killed, "two men on a motorcycle," were members of Islamic Jihad, a fact widely reported, including by the Palestinian Maan News Agency, as early as yesterday.

how can anyone expect negotiations,when your adversary doesn't even recognize Israel as a state.
Where's the U.N. in this case? You would think that at least the European countries would have the courage and speak up for the sake of fairness.
The corruption and one sided-ness in the U.N. is
just over the top. Martin
