Reuters Blames Israel For Doomsday

December 4, 2012 12:03 by

It’s an otherwise forgettable analysis of Israeli plans to develop E1. Could Reuters possibly have come up with a more sensationalized headline?

“Doomsday” hill may be one Israeli settlement too far

Doomsday?

By whipping up hysteria, Reuters distracts readers from the real doomsday of December 21, when the Mayan calendar ends and the apocalypse begins.

Take a deep breath. As Elliott Abrams explains, the E1 controversy is “much ado about little.”

And as I explained earlier this week, despite the hype, E1 doesn’t divide the West Bank in two.

Now where can I get one of those doomsday survival kits?
