The Miami Herald’s coverage of the Israeli-Hamas war in Gaza is the kind of biased reporting fanning flames of anti-Semitism around the world.

The headline Airstrike kills wife, child of Hamas figure, followed by an account of the Israeli airstrike a day after the collapse of ceasefire talks in Cairo and a tally of all the Palestinians killed since the fighting began, most of them civilians.

Much is made of the tough talk by Benjamin Netanyahu but nowhere does it say Hamas incurred the airstrike by breaking the cease-fire yet again, firing dozens of rockets into Israel, which defended itself.

If Hamas had honored the cease-fire, no Palestinian would have been killed.

This is like saying the U. S. declared war on Japan on Dec. 8, 1941 without mentioning the attack on Pearl Harbor the day before.
