Sorry that was a typo, the media portrayed both the
IRA and the UVF and UDA as equally terrorist.

  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.
