There are people who job it is to screen the American media for any hint of deviation from a pro-Israel slant. If they detect such a thing they call press conferences, command lawyers, and martial verious Jewish money to put the offender back in line. American media does not want this headache. This is why very little news is reported in America relating to the Arab/Israeli conflict. This is why the Arabs are always portrayed as the bad guys and the Jews are always the good guys when it is reported at all. The American media is allowed to report that Islamic extremism is rising, but they are not allowed to make any connection to Israel, even when it comes directly from the extremist groups. Years ago Osama Bin laden made a tape played in Arab nations and in the EU describing how American support of Israel was a major motivation for the 9/11 attacks. This was not allowed to be reported in America. I can go on and on, but I will just wait for Oliver Stones movie.
