the journalism of Rami Jarrah: or beautifying Israeli terrorism
So Rami Jarrah (whose cited by all mainstream media without telling us why an individual's tweets and Facebook comments are reliable news sources, and why tweets and Facebook comments by the other side are NOT reliable news sources) cites the authority of his father to tell us that the Israeli enemy used to provide maps (and maybe sandwiches and beverages) when they drop leaflets from the air. I was in Lebanon in 1982, when there were leaflets being dropped from the air by the Israeli terrorist forces and I don't recall one map on them. And why do some people use the Syrian issue in order to beautify Israeli terrorism? It makes you wonder, does it not?
PS These are leaflets dropped by Israeli terrorist planes which have no maps on them.
