I looked at CNN’s website this morning and thought this was worded oddly:

The Israeli security Cabinet declared Hamas-controlled Gaza a “hostile entity” today in response to continued Palestinian rocket attacks. The unanimous Cabinet vote represents a major escalation in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Gaza has–every day–launched rockets into Israel. But Israel’s cabinet votes to express the obvious, that Gaza, controlled by the terrorist group Hamas is a “hostile entity” and this “represents a major escalation?” Silly me, I’d have thought shooting rockets at Israel was a bigger escalation than a harshly worded statement. Why is it that Israel is always the bad guy, not the jerks shooting rockets, sending out suicide bombers, or broadcasting Nazi-like anti-semitic statements on their radio, TV and in their schools–every day?

    What level of hell did Dante assign to journalists? I don’t recall Niven & Pornell dealing with them either. They tended to come up with extremely appropriate punishments.
