The vanishing Palestinian Christian

I'm a big fan of David Warren, one of the few sane political writers left in Canada. He has a great Op-Ed in the Ottawa Citizen about how Christians in the Palestinian "territories" are rapidly being erased, generally through intimidation that is forcing them to relocate: Ironically, this relocation is often to Israel, though the MSM seems to believe that it is Israel which is forcing them to leave (see my previous post on this subject). However, as Mr. Warren writes, it is Islamic oppression which is causing the move.

The nicest thing that can be said about the reporting on this subject is that if ignorance is bliss, then the MSM reporters on this subject must be one incredibly happy lot. However, I think that there is a darker undercurrent here, which is that the MSM reporters know very well that what they are reporting is wrong. They simply don't care, because Israel is in their view always wrong, and they start with that premise and then build their story around it.
