    thank you for covering the sad story of the two little children wounded in Gaza/Israel. It's tragic and yet the Israeli's care for both...would the Palestinians? I doubt it. they kill "suspects"..not even convicted and drag them through streets.that is the difference and worth nothing and showing as you did implicit in your report. I'm happy since much of the time you are not as fair to the Israeli side I'm afraid.

    Obama pardons Thanksgiving turkey, then eats it the next day!

    President Barack Obama continues the traditional Thanksgiving presidential duty of pardoning a turkey, sparing Cobbler and Gobbler, two 19-week-old birds.

    Information and emotion all wrapped up in one. President Shimon Perez is a great statesman. He offered us all a glimpse into the chaos in the Middle-East, all the while expressing hope and optimism.
    No hype, no spin.
    Respect for all the parties involved.
    No hysteria.
    Just the facts, plain and simple.
    What's not to like.
    Thanks.

    Perez needs to realize there are more and more people in the US and around the world that can see right through Israel's propaganda and their attempt to discredit Hamas. Israel is carrying out systematic genocide against the Palestinian people in Gaza and elsewhere throughout Palestine/Israel. Why does he conveniently leave out the walls and razor wire and checkpoints around Gaza when speaking?
    Israel has the right to defend but Palestinians don't. They exist under the thumb of Israel, funded to the tune of over $8Million dollars a DAY for decades.

    .Without trying to appear anti semetic,how in the world can"impartial" journalist report on what has just happened in
    Garza as the result of Israeli aggression. Hamas prided itself on hiding among civiliians who safety they had no concern for while tossing rockets into Israel. Can you imagine the hue and cry that would have gone up should the Lsraelis replied in kind. My solution is to level !,!! The area and let the. Chips fall where they may. Remember "don't tread onme"
