A Friendly Exchange about the US Media
between Laila Yaghi and her good friend Paula

I don't know whether to believe this or not. There's a lot of propaganda out there to get people to hate Americans or anyone who works side by side with the Americans. The news that's reported here has to be verified and there's just so much the media can do. They have so much to report they couldn't possibly report everything that happens. I wish they would report more good news myself. It's so depressing hearing bad news and mistakes like this all the time. There have been so many mistakes made these last days - Americans getting killed accidentally and I'm sure Afghans, Palestinians, Israelis, etc. have made mistakes or have had accidents. Especially during war it occurs more frequently because, I believe, more people are emotional or in a hurry and not thinking clearly. Much of the time too it's poor communication. Look at the FBI and CIA. They don't communicate with each other much of the time, and they should. They are on the same side, or should have the same objectives.
Really you can be much smarter than this! First of all nobody is trying to get anyone to hate Americans! This has nothing to do AT ALL with Americans. Second, Israel does not work side by side with America. In fact, Israelis have jailed and killed many Americans who have gone to Israel to help Palestinians! Third, this article has nothing to do with propaganda. An American Jewish writer has written this article and he also writes for the Washington Report, which is a very popular magazine here in the USA and it has many articles written by Americans and American Jews against what the Zionists are doing in Palestine. You will be outraged to see and hear the truth. The media here is controlled by Zionists and pro-Israelis and unless you read else where you will never know the truth.
Lastly, it is not a war that is going on in Palestine. It is an illegal occupation of one country over a nother. Palestinians do not own weapons while the Israelis own tanks and appache helicopters. The UN has called over and over for Israel to withdraw from the occupied territories, but Israel refuses to comply with the UN orders!
And why is it also so easy for us to believe any news against Arabs, but the Israelis are always innocent?
Seek the truth Paula for your media is lying to you. You must understand this game or else you will be lost in this world
I am not defending any country or people against the other. Americans are my people and so are the Palestinians. I read all the time articles that are written by Americans who are very educated and smart and know exactly what is going on and who have gone to Palestine and seen what is really going on there. I could send you the Washington Report and you can see for your self and then decide
