Terrorist Balloons: Ethan Bronner would call them Hamas strongholds

"Israeli authorities broke up a series of Palestinian cultural events in Jerusalem on Saturday, disrupting a children's march and bursting balloons at a schoolyard celebration in a crackdown that underscored the emotional battle over control of the disputed holy city." Look at the last sentence: I can always tell when a foreign editor of a US media unit inserted a sentence to a dispatch by a correspondent in order to soften the impact of Israeli crimes. "Underscored the emotional battle"? What the duck is that? Imagine if a US media inserted a sentence after a Palestinian act of violence and saying: the act only underscores the emotional battle over the holy land. (thanks David)
