Shock as Israeli press shine a light on Israeli state terrorism
In a shock move that smells of some other agenda, one of the leading newspapers Haaretz has published the pictures of 67 of the Palestinian children murdered by the Israeli Defence Forces (IDF). While this is a very welcome exposure of what has been going on, it does beg the question of why now. For the Zionist state has been killing Palestinians for years and has created the largest open air prison on the planet.
That other agenda could be related to the power struggle going on with Netanyahu and may be away to apply pressure to have him removed. The only thing is that neither he nor any other potential leader is likely to bring peace.
The publication of the pictures has been widely welcomed by human rights activists and journalists.

Human rights advocates and journalists applauded the Israeli newspaper Haaretz for its “unprecedented” cover story Thursday—one featuring the photos and stories of 67 Palestinian children killed in the latest bombardment campaign by the Israel Defense Forces.
“This is the price of war,” the headline read.
The article came a day after the New York Times published its own extensive account of the youngest victims of Israel’s most recent 11-day offensive, in which the IDF frequently targeted residential areas of Gaza, known as the world’s largest open-air prison.
Haaretz‘s focus on the children killed in Gaza was especially noteworthy, said author and Brooklyn College professor Louis Fishman, considering the newspaper’s “readers also send their children to fight in Israel’s wars.”
“This is unprecedented,” Fishman tweeted.
While Haaretz leans to the center-left editorially, Israeli’s mainstream media has traditionally not covered the Palestinian casualties of the IDF’s military campaigns and the Israeli government’s violent policies, said journalist Khaled Diab.
As Diab tweeted, previous attempts by organizations in Israel to publicize the human cost of the IDF’s assaults have been repressed.
