Perhaps the New York Times, Washington Post and other major dailies are living in their unique rarefied spin zone... but Israel is losing support on the American "street." And no, it's not just the career peaceniks and leftists. Israel is making a HUGE mistake slaughtering Lebanese people, every small town newspaper is filled with accounts of local students, businessmen and families (not all of them of Lebanese origin!) who are relating their harrowing escapes from the country, the hardships and danger and fear, and their sickness with worry for their loved ones. I am telling you that if newspapers in Middle America are giving full voice to those who were in Lebanon, Israel cannot afford to be smug in thinking that the usual cast of powerful Washington and New York suspects will help them out of this mess. The DC and NYC elites are NOT in touch with the American people who are at best, disgusted, and at most, horrified about the Israeli overreaction.
