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.

Israeli forces ransack home of acting Palestinian supreme judge

Ma'an -- Israeli forces ransacked the home of the acting supreme judge of Palestine and deputy chief of the Higher Judiciary Council Sheikh Yousif Id'eis early Saturday morning in Biddu near Ramallah.

The sheikh was not home at the time, and soldiers gave his wife a warrant ordering him to go to the Ofer military base near Ramallah, his assistant Muhammad Kaffiya said.

An Israeli military spokeswoman said Yousif Id'eis was not issued a warrant overnight.
