Bob Simon's report was excellent and for once, we got the Palestinian view on mainstream broadcasting. Oren came off as what he is: a deceiver, distorter and propagandist for indefensible positions of the government he represents. He must have been furious that Simon didnt include anyone from the zionist christian front groups. We saw and heard the plight of the Palestinian Christians who as Arabs have been targets of extreme religo/nationalist zionism that views them as Arabs and impediments to their achieivng a Greater Israel for Jews above all others. The attempt by oren to prevent the segment from being aired is a reflection of how concerned Israel is over the truth getting out to a wide public. Congratulations to CBS and Bob Simon for such an excellent report and for not caving in to this attempt by Israel to silence the truth. The propganada of oren and his ilk is being successfully undermined by the day and more and more US Christians are coming to see Israel's propaganda over this issue for what it is. Jews and Christians alike must work ceaselessly to expose the lies put out by Israel's propaganda machine.
