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.

The Maan News Agency reported that dozens of students marched on Thursday morning in support of the Palestinian bid at the United Nations, and that soldiers attacked the protest, leading to clashes.

Israeli settlers also gathered near the camp, and clashed with dozens of residents.
