In the case of Israel/Palestine, the journalistic portrayals become totally bizarre - if the IDF razes buildings, fires rockets on cars or persecutes Palestinians, this is "self-defence" but if Palestinians do it, it is "terrorism". So Hamas is a "terrorist" organisation, but the Israeli state isn't. It's the same in Ireland - the IRA are terrorists, but the Ulstermen aren't. What a load of codswallop. ------------------------ Jurrian what you say about Isreal is accurate enough, but the general media portrail of Northern Ireland was that both the IRA and the UDF were equally terrorist organisations.
