The Guardian’s Atomic Omission

The Guardian’s Atomic Omission

I hate to ruin the mood The Guardian‘s trying to create. It picked up on a report by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (Sipri) about the state of nuclear weapons in the world today.

Why Let An Inconvenient Truth Spoil a Great Mood?

The Guardian broke out the violins by publishing a Palestinian boy’s open letter to President Obama — in the paper’s news section.

Everything you need to know about today’s coverage of Israel and the Mideast. Join the Israel Daily News Stream on Facebook. Today’s Top Stories 1. According to an academic study (pdf) funded by the US State Dept., Israeli and Palestinian school textbooks both present “one-sided narratives” and maps with blind-spots, but little demonization of “the
