Hamas as victim

When a Grad Katyusha rocket fired by Hamas lands in an Israeli shopping mall and injures 90 people why isn't that news?

The Western media has become one-sided in its' portrayal of violence with respect to Gaza, painting a simplistic view of Israelis as oppressors and Palestinians as victims even when Hamas targets civilians.

Can you imagine what the U.S. response would be if Canada fired a rocket into a mid-western shopping mall?

And yet the Israelis' respond with little-more than precision strikes.

It is a safe bet that if a Palestinian civilian is harmed in response to these acts of war it will be deemed news and possibly an outrage.
