Studies show that US coverage is Israeli-centric. The main bureaus for CNN, Associated Press, Time, etc. are located in Israel and often staffed by Israelis. The son of the NY Times bureau chief is in the Israeli army;"pundit" Jeffrey Goldberg served in the IDF; Wolf Blitzer worked for AIPAC. Because the U.S. gives Israel over $8 million/day - more than to any other nation - we feel it is essential that we be fully informed on this region. Below are news reports to augment mainstream coverage.

Israel bulldozes Palestinian homes in Naqab

Wafa– Bulldozers of the Israeli Ministry of Interior, under police protection, Tuesday demolished Palestinian homes in several Arab villages unrecognized by the Israeli government in Naqab, in southern Israel.

Three homes have been demolished so far, and Israeli army forces are roaming additional areas in Naqab to demolish more.

The Regional Council for Unrecognized Villages considered the demolishing operations as ethnic cleansing to empty the land of its Arab residents and give it to Jews.

Villages and communities in Naqab face constant Israeli harassment and oppression with the aim of removing their Arab residents.
