    Well, Gideon Levy, listen to a good (by definition foreign) news service and you will understand the difference immediately. It's sad to have to say this, but it is in great part the media's fault. The news programmes on TV and radio never hesitate to tell you what you ought to think, it's considered so normal, no-one even notices. And not only with domestic news. There is no independent, neutral stance taken with world news either. If it doesn't have some influence on Israeli imports or exports, or our interests in the Middle East, it doesn't get reported at all. In other words, "is it good or bad for the Jews?" rules OK. Today we heard about Greece's financial woes. Q to expert: "Are we more corrupt than Greece"? A: "Oh no, Greece is much more corrupt". No comparative study, no supporting evidence, a flat, feel-good statement that couldn't possibly put you off your breakfast. After a lifetime of this + the propaganda programmes that pass for entertainment, what do you expect?
