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.

Ma'an -- Israeli forces entered the northern West Bank city of Tulkarem Sunday and searched students at the Kadoorie Technical University.

At least four jeeps were stationed at the entrance to the university and Israeli officers inspected students' ID cards around the campus, witnesses said.

A Ma'an cameraman was among those stopped. He said some students were detained for more than 30 minutes and subjected to body searches.
