Sky News Turns Iron Dome Into Offensive WeaponNovember 15, 2012 15:03 by Simon Plosker
It doesn’t take much to portray Israel as an aggressor. Take this photo of Israel’s Iron Dome, part of a gallery on Sky News.
The caption underneath reads:
The Israeli military launches a missile from the Iron Dome missile system in the southern Israeli city of Beer Sheva into the Gaza Strip.
Iron Dome is, of course, designed to intercept incoming missiles as a means of defense. Therefore, despite Sky News’s caption, there’s no way that Israel would be firing Iron Dome missiles into the Gaza Strip.
A minor mistake maybe but a major change in context to Israel’s detriment.
