This is a purely subjective take on the TV reporting in the past few days. On BBC News it led with the deaths outside the synagogue and showed the grieving parents of some of those killed, including a highly emotional (understandably) statement by the son of a man who died. Only at the tail-end of the report did it mention that 10 Palestinians had been killed by Israeli forces prior to this. There were no interviews or scenes showing the parents and friends of those killed.
ITV news covered the same events and included the same or similar footage of grieving family and friends. But it also included a segment (not brief) of the 10 Palestinian deaths and we saw the grieving mother of one of the dead. So there was an attempt at balance and some sort of context, which were lacking in the BBC report.
I'll leave it there.It will cost the UK taxpayer £132bn to decommission all the UK’s civil nuclear sites and the work will not be completed for another 120 years, according to latest estimates. Report -- May 2022:
Israel launched one of its deadliest operations in years in the occupied West Bank on Thursday, sending soldiers on an unusually fierce raid to kill militants stationed in the Jenin refugee camp. Ten Palestinians, mostly gunmen, but also two civilians, including a 61-year-old woman, were killed.
The attack sparked back-and-forth violence, including the exchange of rocket fire between the Hamas-run Gaza Strip and Israel. On Friday evening, a Palestinian gunman killed seven Israelis outside a synagogue in East Jerusalem. It was the deadliest Palestinian attack in the city in years.
Over the weekend, violent incidents were reported in Jerusalem and the West Bank, including fights between Israeli settlers and Palestinians.
Why is this happening now?
Attempting to mark the beginning of a flare-up in a crisis that stretches back over generations is a near-impossible task. Still, current tensions have risen since last spring, when the Israel Defence Forces (IDF) launched Operation Breakwater – one of its most extensive campaigns outside wartime – after a surge in Palestinian knife and gun attacks.
Breakwater, which focuses on Palestinian armed groups in Jenin and Nablus, has so far contributed to the highest death toll in Israel and the West Bank since the second intifada ended in 2005, with about 150 Palestinians and 30 Israelis killed in 2022.
Conveniently the fraud pick the Jenin raid as the starting point so they can ignore the 25 or so Palestinians killed by Israel in January.
Then there is a "surge in Palestinian knife and gun attacks" and yet 150 Palestinians have been killed v. 30 Israelis. Seems more like a surge in Israeli attacks no?
All the other pro-Israel framing is present as always....no amount of cajolery, and no attempts at ethical or social seduction, can eradicate from my heart a deep burning hatred for the Tory Party...So far as I am concerned they are lower than vermin.

Lloyd Scott read out the 5 a.m. news. Scott is a particularly sensitive and intelligent man, and he was clearly affected by having to read the following: “An Israeli military investigation into its own killing of nine peace workers has found there were errors of planning, intelligence and coordination but the killings were justified. It also rejected calls for an independent inquiry, saying that it would have been biased.” As he read this last sentence out, his voice rose in dismay. He read some more items and then the weather forecast.
Then, several minutes later, Scott returned to the item about the “inquiry” into the murder of nine peace workers. He said: “That last bit really gets me, you know. Especially the last sentence: ‘An independent inquiry would have been biased.’ Does that mean the Israeli report into their own killing of peace activists was NOT biased?’
