The AFP Goes Beserk Over Israeli 'Rock Throwing'

This article that came fluttering over the French news agency AFP today is tbe best example I could find recently of the egregious bias that afflicts media coverage of Israel.

Note the title: "Israeli protestors throw stones at UN commissioner's convoy." Imagine the suffering! Poor, poor, UN officials being bombarded with stones, blood splattering, injured people filling the hospital.

Actually, if you look closely, you find that somebody maybe threw something at a car, and nobody was hurt. Even a UN spokesman downplayed the incident as it was, which was a big fat nothing.

Meanwhile, three Italian aid workers are kidnapped and that gets the same amount of coverage from the AFP.
