U.N. report indicates that a stray Palestinian rocket, not an Israeli airstrike, likely killed the baby of a BBC reporter during fighting in the Hamas-ruled territory last November, reports the Associated Press.
Omar al-Masharawi, the 11-month-old son of BBC employee Jihad al-Masharawi, was tragically killed in the midst of fighting between Israel and Palestinian terrorists last year. The horrific event was quickly turned into a symbol of what Palestinians and much of the Western world’s media sees as Israeli aggression.
But the U.N. office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights said in its March 6th report that the incident was caused by “what appeared to be a Palestinian rocket that fell short of Israel.”
Similar stories of alleged Israeli aggression against civilians, such as this reporting from the BBC’s Jon Donnison, emerged throughout the ‘Pillar of Defense’ campaign, in what was a major media war for Israel. Donnison was eventually summoned to a Government Press Office Hearing.

What does the increased pace of the Norks’ bellicosity mean?
It took Dennis Rodman to make Hillary Clinton and John Kerry look good. When the former NBA star reported on his “basketball diplomacy” mission to North Korea, he informed us that Kim Jong-un was really a nice guy, someone who didn’t want war and only wished for a phone call from President Obama.
Before Rodman arrived, North Korea conducted its third nuclear test. And soon after Rodman’s return, Kim Jong-un threatened a nuclear attack on the United States and his neighbors, adding that his nation was pulling out of the ceasefire agreement that ended the Korean War in 1953. It has “cancelled” the armistice before, in 2009, when South Korea joined the “Proliferation Security Initiative” which calls on the nations belonging to it to interdict shipments of nuclear and missile technologies that emanate primarily from North Korea.
A few days ago, Kim told his troops to be ready for “all-out war.”
Rodman’s attempt at diplomacy-by-idiot failed spectacularly but probably wasn’t any more damaging than our other idiotic attempts to engage the Norks. Under Defense Secretary William Perry’s“Agreed Framework” of 1994, we were supposed to ship fuel oil to North Korea in exchange for their stopping the construction of nuclear enrichment plants. That failed when the Norks immediately broke the agreement and continued construction of facilities to produce highly enriched uranium for nuclear weapons.

Although these predisposed, mindless sheep of academia differ somewhat from their quadruped counterparts, they are also of value because, as a veterinarian noted, both can be worked on […]
http://sultanknish.blogspot.com/ At the end of last week we were consumed by the question of whether the President of the United States can order a drone strike on an American in the United States. But why ask that question only about a drone? Suppose that Obama decides that he wants Rush Limbaugh gone once and for […]

http://bit.ly/Xid2uV The Middle East is burning.

http://www.centerforsecuritypolicy.org/2013/03/11/investigative-benghazigate/ After Iraq was liberated from Saddam Hussein’s despotic misrule, critics denounced the then-incumbent president with the charge that “Bush lied, people died.” It never ceases to amaze that among the most prominent of those making this slanderous accusation were past and present Democratic legislators who had publicly pronounced exactly what George W. Bush did: […]
