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 teenager girls charged with torching Palestinian car

IMEMC – Two Israeli teenage girls have been charged with torching a Palestian car in Hebron as part of a "pricetag" retaliation attack, according to YNet.

The girls, who deny having been involved in the attack, are accused of putting two bottles of petrol obtained from a local gas station and igniting two tires under a Palestinian car parked near the Israeli settlement of Kiryat Arba.

Israeli settlers are regularly involved in "pricetag" attacks on Palestinians and their property in the West Bank in response to Israeli legal measures being imposed against them.

In June a mosque near Ramallah was burnt down by settlers as part of a price tag attack.
