I don’t expect honest coverage from corporate media regarding the war crimes Israel is committing right now, but ABC’s coverage was so terrible that they were forced to apologize:

Red-faced ABC News officials apologized early Thursday morning for misidentifying shell-shocked Palestinians as Israeli victims of a Hamas missile attack.

The gaffe came during an “ABC World News” report on Tuesday about the rapidly escalating crisis between Israel and the Palestinians. Anchor Diane Sawyer described an Associated Press photo as Israelis “trying to salvage what they can” after a Palestinian missile attack. The image, however, actually shows Palestinians walking through rubble with their belongings following an Israeli air strike.

The mistake was identified by pro-Palestinian journalist Rania Khalek late on Wednesday.

During Thursday’s predawn hours, “ABC World News” posted a statement to its Facebook page acknowledging the error: “On Tuesday night `World News’ aired a report on the conflict between the Palestinians and Israelis, including attacks from both sides. In the introduction to the story, we mistakenly identified a family depicted in a still photo. They are Palestinian, not Israeli. We regret the error and will correct it.”

I guess ABC couldn’t find any images of destroyed Israeli homes, like the home that was intentionally targeted, resulting in the death of 5 children, all from the same family:

The exchange of Israeli air strikes and Palestinian rocket fire has continued to escalate into a third day, as health officials in Gaza reported that the deadliest pre-dawn bombardment yet has killed five children from the same family.

Israel also targeted a beach cafe, killing 9 people who were clearly plotting the demise of Israel while watching the World Cup.

How else should we expect the poor, victimized nation of Israel to act? Bomb shelter selfies?

Israel will continue committing war crimes with impunity. Because they can. The result of this barbarous behavior from the apartheid state of Israel ensures there will be new generations of traumatized Palestinians harboring acute hatred of the people inflicting collective punishment on them.

And the cycle continues…
