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 settlers seize Palestinian land for Israeli-only road

HEBRON, (WAFA) – Jewish settlers Monday built a new dirt road and surrounded it with barbed wires, adjacent to the Israeli settlement of Sosiya, which was built illegally on Palestinians’ land south of the town of Yatta, in southern Hebron, according to witnesses.

The Popular Committee Coordinator in Yatta, Rateb al-Jabour told WAFA that the new road’s length reached almost 2.5 Kilometers which took about 10 dunums of Palestinian land.

He said that settlers also destroyed a number of olive trees, while they were opening the road, adjacent to Khirbet Um Nir, in Hebron governorate, south of the West Bank.
