Israel’s story must be told

I appreciate President Obama saying that Israel has a right to defend herself – that any country that is attacked has that right.

It seems that so much of the media ignores Israel’s plight, and rather sympathizes with the Palestinians.

Why is that, when it’s the Palestinians who caused the trouble by sending missiles into Israel first? The Palestinians were given the Gaza strip in exchange for peace. Where is the peace that was promised? I think that both sides of the story should be told in a balanced way.

If you look at the Balfour Declaration, written at the end of WWI, you will see that England was supposed to give Israel four times as much land as they finally got in 1948.
