This is typical behavior of our politicians. They are the ones who put our nation's finest into impossible conditions, but instead of accepting responsibility if anything goes wrong, they will be the first to blame the messenger. Of course the media are far from perfect, each of them has its own interests, but in all the controversial cases mentioned in the article the basic facts were not incorrect, only in some of the cases the context should have been stressed more explicitly. Obviously almost all IDF actions in the territories are weakening Israel's international standing, but hey, the main reason for that is the simple fact that we should have left the territories ages ago already. I am sure of the moral standards of most Israeli soldiers, less so of the moral and ethical standards of our politicians.
