The 'Jeninization' of Lebanon

At first the Liberal press did not know what to make of Israel's response to the kidnapping of two and the murder of eight IDF soldiers just south of the frontier between Lebanon and Israel. The violation of international law was so flagrant that there was little mileage to be had in the usual anti-Israel editorial that is passed as news in both press and television.

But as the situation carries on the usual refrains are starting to be heard and not surprisingly from the same sources.

Shortly after Jenin hit the headlines, Janine di Giovanni of the Times wrote regarding the IDF: "Rarely in more than a decade of war reporting from Bosnia, Chechnya, Sierra Leone, Kosovo, have I seen such deliberate destruction, such disrespect for human life."

The following day The Guardian commented that Israel had acted in a way that was every bit as repellent as Osama Bin Laden's attack on September 11th.

It was only later that a few (and only a few) voices from the Liberal media began to admit that they got wrong. Phil Reeves of The independent wrote, "It was clear that the debate over the awful events in Jenin four months ago is still dominated by whether there was a massacre, even though it has long been obvious that one did not occur."

The Independent's Robert Fisk has today ( http://news.independent.co.uk/world/fisk/article1193097.ece ) once again laid the allegation of war crimes at Israel.

Predictable.
