I just read an article from the Washington Post written by Ephraim Sneh, former Israeli minister. Must be nice for Israelis to have such access to OUR media outlets in the states. In his pseudo-article, Sneh claimed that Hamas had Iran's Revolutionary Guard elements in Gaza since 2006 training Hamas militants. This would have been an incredible feat for Hamas to pull off. Israel has controlled the border since 2005, and has executed one of the most immoral sieges of an area in modern history, effectively blocking medicines, fuel, tax revenues owed to the Palestinians, food aid, etc. Israel has controlled every element of the border. Now Sneh claims, without a shred of evidence mind you, that Iran is working inside the Gaza. Please! Another Israeli lie. In fact, after having perused CNN, the NYT, the WP, and other "mainstream" media in the US I found that these media outlets are simply mouthpieces for the standard Israeli line of bullshit and propaganda. The first honest article I could find was on page 5 or 6 of googlenews .... the Rocky Mountain News!
