More fence mending

Writing in The Australian, David Ignatius of the Washington Writers Group informs that Barack Obama is "seriously considering" proposing a US peace plan to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, according to two top administration officials" - Obama's latest Middle East peace plan a case of back to the future.

In other words, Obama is seeking to impose a solution to the conflict on the Israelis and Palestinians (or more particularly, some Palestinians).

Good luck with that - it's an impossible dream as long as you have Hamas threatening to destroy Israel and the PA refusing to recognise Israel as a Jewish State and inciting its population through its media and the pulpit.

Ignatius quotes an official with saying that "(W)e want to get the debate away from settlements and East Jerusalem and take it to a 30,000ft level that can involve Jordan, Syria and other countries in the region".

No innocents at the Age

Age version

.....the daily newspaper Haaretz published a story accusing senior IDF commanders of approving the assassination of Palestinian militants and civilians.

and the "liberal" (LOL) descriptor of Haaretz not here as well.

So the question is - did the Age add drop the liberal and innocent bits or did the SMH add them in.

But still factually wrong by including civilians innocent or not as being approved targets.
