LibMSMWatch: wrong kind of child killers

Four children among the 17 dead as Gaza fire fights rage

- headline in the Indie. Nothing quite as judgmental as 'Palestinian gunmen kill four children' - after all, they obviously didn't mean to kill children, it's just one of those things that can happen when you have a fire fight.

But at least the children are mentioned, which is more than can be said of the Grauniad's version, headed 'US bid to revive peace process falters on Gaza streets' (those Americans, can't do a darn thing right, can they?). Or of the Beeb's.

On past occasions the killing of even one Palestinian child has been a very emotive topic indeed. Today four are dead and they barely rate a mention. I wonder why.
