Stories that the US media largely ignores (aside from other issues)

News that is remarkably absent from the US media that the American public is not being presented with (besides the almost daily violations of international law by the Israeli government) - a work in progress.

People the world over sympathize with the plight of the Palestinians, including me. They are not all terrorists nor are they all terror-supporters. Collective punishment of millions of people for the actions of a few is immoral and unjust. As an American, I can no longer be silent and allow this to go on in my name.

Anything involving the USS Liberty except the news that doesn't make Israel look bad (for example, each time A. Jay Cristol comes out with a new 'find' that purportedly exonerates Israel - that usually gets headlines).
