“In the usual process,” writes Greg Mitchell, “the U.S. government — and media here — are playing down questions about whether Israel overreacted in its massive air strikes on Gaza, while the foreign press, and even Haaretz in Israel, carries more balanced accounts. The early reports on Sunday already reveal the bombing of a TV station and mosque and preparations for an invasion.” Mitchell cites eyewitness accounts that describe morgues full of civilians, along with editorial stating that Israel’s bombing of Gaza “within the span of a few hours … sowed death and destruction on a scale that the Qassam rockets never approached in all their years.”
