Look at this New York Times title: “Eviction in Jerusalem Become Focus of Israeli-Palestinian Conflict”; and then the text goes on like this: “The effort to evict six Arab families from a contested neighborhood has drawn attention to the Israeli effort to remove Palestinians from parts of East Jerusalem and led to protests.”

Now what is really happening is Palestinians are being forced out of their homes, where they were living forever. The effort to ethnically cleans Palestinians from their homes has drawn attention to the Israeli crimes to remove Palestinians from parts of East Jerusalem and led to protests, where Israeli forces started to oppress them.

If you’re not writing the truth about crimes against humanity, you’re culpable in them. News agencies lie, for their own benefit. This benefit can be support for their political side, gaining attention and support from those in power, or even get paid for lying.

News agencies are our sources for truth, sadly. But happily, every political side, every ideology has its own news agencies and journalists so by following different sources and different people, by comparing what they say and by searching for truth, we can be a little sure that we receive the correct news and understand what is really happening, instead of being manipulated by those in power.
