Subject: PLEASE READ to understand media: Some Deaths Really Matter - Coverage of Israeli And Palestinian Killings
Some Deaths Really Matter – The Disproportionate Coverage of Israeli And Palestinian Killings

Shameful on the part of our media !
  The missing, ugly reality is that over the last 13 years, on average, one Palestinian child has been killed by Israel every 3 days. Since the outbreak of the second Intifada in September 2000, 1,523 Palestinian children have been killed by Israel's occupation forces. Over the same time period, 129 Israeli children have been killed. Thus, the ratio of Palestinian children to Israeli children killed is more than ten to one. You would be forgiven for not having the slightest inkling of this from Western media coverage. Even in the past few days, in reporting the massive Israeli operation to find the teenagers, only the briefest of nods has been given to the 'five Palestinians, including a number of minors, [who were] killed' in the process.

Museum spends $500K on re-brand following Tory-mandated name change

Joe--we have little healthcare, people are dying because they can't afford treatment, food banks are over used but the government uses our dollars to rebrand a name of a museum??  I wonder how much of the history they will change to pat themselves on the back???
