And if this had happened in America?…
It wouldn’t be a top Issue for Wolf Blitzer, but if it was an American cop and black youth, then sure it’d be top news. You have to put on the rose colored glasses when you look at Israel news, just like the pundits do.
Re: cop vs black youth – to be fair, it is only top of the news now because of the riots. The cops have been abusing the black youths for a while now, and are complicit in no small terms for what is happening.
Having said that, I am usually suspicious when sensational events blot out the news for days on end, knocking other news from the headlines – sometimes bread and circus are intended to distract us from something more sinister happening in the shadows. Corenerd rats and all that…
As for the Palestinian child, when a dog bites a man, it is not news…
You kinda expect it.
