Dishonest Headline of the day

The Financial Times authored the following headline, "Israeli civil defence drill raises regional tension", which is attached to an article which can be found here:,Authorised=false.html?

As more articles than can be counted have pointed out, the Israeli drill was conducted in response to the neverending barrage of Hamas rockets, the ominous threat of more powerful and renewed rocket attacks from Hezbollah, and the growing threat of Iranian missiles being launched at Israel (which the Iranians would dearly love to fire). Yet, in the Financial Times' world, it's Israel's DEFENSIVE drill which is increasing tension.

Nope, no bias here. Just keep moving along............
