ISRAEL STRIKES GAZA
As West Celebrates Christmas Eve, Israel Lights up the Global Press
- Border Killing Ignites Fresh Tensions. Israel launched a series of air strikes shortly after a Gaza sniper shot an Israeli civilian laborer as he performed maintenance work on a border fence. The man was airlifted to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
- Mainstream Media Lays Low as Israel Launches Air Strikes on Christmas Eve. The mainstream media was virtually silent after Israeli air strikes launched against Gaza killed a three-year old Palestinian girl on Christmas Eve. An independent report found that the DrudgeReport.com, FoxNews, along with several other major news outlets kept silent on the story. Meanwhile, the story was top news across numerous international outlets.
- Israel Announces New Settlement Construction. Tensions were increased when Israel announced new plans to build another settlement in disputed territory.
- Report: Israel Passes U.S. Military Technology to China. Yet another investigation has revealed that Israel recently transferred secret U.S. missile technology to China. The revelations forced the head of defense exports for the Israeli Defense Ministry to resign amid U.S. anger. But this should be no surprise to those who have long observed Israel’s selling of U.S. state secrets. Whether it was the 69 Patriot missiles that Israel attempted to sell to China, or the sale of U.S.-style jet fighters and tanks, the booming Israel-Chinese trade in secret U.S. military hardware and technology is worth several billions of dollars.
