"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

So, the Financial Times bears no anti-Israel bias, so they say. I wonder then, how they can even try to claim that this headline is not intentionally making Israel out to be the architect of a massacre?

No Mention of Massacre in Jenin Report

The byline:

UN says it was in no position to judge

The story makes not one mention of the report's harsh words fr Palestinian wrongdoing in militants hiding in areas that would lead to batlles where innocents would die. This is sickening and morally bankrupt reporting that makes no pretense at being fair or as the Arabs like to say 'even-handed'.

The report does not say the battle that left the Palestinian refugee camp in ruins was a massacre, as some Arab leaders alleged. The report was compiled by the political office of UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan completely from secondary sources after Israel refused to give a UN fact-finding mission access.
