Bloggers from Canada and the United States visited the Fogel family home in Itamar, where the two parents and three of their young children were slaughtered on Friday night. Ynet reports that blogger Chuck Devore of California

explained that Israel is depicted around the world as Goliath, while the Palestinians are presented as the underdog. He cited a Los Angeles Times article, which reported that the attack on the Fogel family came as revenge for the uprooting of olive trees and the burning of Palestinian cars by settlers.

"The LA Times implied in their article that the Jews instigated their own killing," Devore later wrote in a Twitter message.

He said that while the world does take notice of what goes on in Israel, he came to the country in order to report on the situation in a way that is different from that of the Western media.
