"Whitewashing" The Israeli Contribution in Haiti

Please listen very carefully to the reporter as he tells about the great job the Israeli team is doing rescuing people in Haiti.


And then, towards the end, few of his lines seem scrubbed of necessary and obvious details.

  • Why can't he say that the injured man was taken to the Israeli field hospital, which is the best equipped of all? 
  • And why can't he say that the baby shown at the end of the report was born in that Israeli hospital?
  • Why this "whitewashing" of facts to downplay the role of Israel rescuing people in Haiti?

Davka this morning, I received the perfect youtube film clip "response" from Boris.
