Palestine

I think KBOO has really lost its voice for the people by taking sides on the Israeli/Palestinian issue. Supporting a culture of violence and terrorism via its support for Hamas undermines peaceful communities in Palestine and ignores Israel's efforts to create a two state solution. There seems to be some kind of weird guilt thing going on where KBOO always supports the underdog, even if the underdog is a violent ignorant self-destructive idea. A Palestinian state could have been a reality a long time ago, but for a culture of violence. Hamas is the enemy of Palestinians and of peace loving communities every where.

Stop the rockets, stop the bombing.

kboo does support peace

I challenge you to point to one example where kboo has supported hamas - that's a ridiculous claim.  how strange that simply by reporting BOTH palestinian and israeli deaths and casualties, instead of just israeli deaths and casualties (which are comparatively few), kboo gets accused of being one-sided, and on the side of hamas.  kboo frequently highlights efforts for peace by the palestinians and israelis, including the weekly non-violent protests held in villages like Bil'in, Naileen and Jayyous which are routinely met with brutal and deadly force by the Israeli army.  Why is it not news when non-violent demonstrators are attacked and injured or killed on a weekly basis?  KBOO does a good job of delving deep in the Israeli occupation of Palestine, bringing out the history and the context, instead of just making it out to be an intractable religious conflict, as so many other media outlets do.

palestinian/israeli trouble

what?  not clear.
