The media in Israel, and around the world generally, are liberal. They tend to focus more on the Good guy-Bad guy scenarios. Same in movies, and even Islamist propaganda - it gets people rallied and as they say in the media - "give the people what they want". Israelis know full well what is going on in Gaza and watch it intently, with shock and sympathy - from other news outlets than mentioned in the article. Having some media outlets ignore the plight there are two fold: 1) By acknowledging it, Israel could be attacked as "glorifying the Pals misery" - even though no Israeli runs in the streets handing out candies. 2) Because inter-Pal disputes are considered internal, there is no "good guy-bad guy" scenario - just mass victimization which unless blamed on an outsider (Israel, UN, the planet Mars..) is of no interest to anyone. It's very telling as to the ignorance of more massive world issues like Darfur. Maybe the world should demand more truth and less bravado.
