My wish is for this post to help those non-Muslims who may be struggling to understand the conflict in Gaza.  When the media only spins one narrative it is not an easy era to ascertain truth from falsehood, but numbers cannot lie…

      Peace John,

      You’re very welcome, glad to have you here at LTML.

      Unfortunately mainstream media coverage of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is far from objective and accurate. Please do pass the link on to others who you feel may benefit from the post.
