How the media values lives - a sporting perspective

When Palestinian Arabs lose their lives while attempting to commit terror attacks on Israel, you will always find certain of our media gnashing their teeth and fingerpointing at the Jewish State in an attempt to find the convenient scapegoat for their stupidity. But when 50 Arabs in Irak die as a result of the tumult of celebrations because their nation made the finals of the Asian Cup football tournament, they don't even blink, do they?

Meanwhile, I've heard that the British Union of Journalists is considering boycotting the Melbourne Storm NRL team because of Israel. It seems that one of the Storm's first year players is called Israel Folau and that should be enough to have those pommy journos turning up their wrinkled noses in disgust!
