CNN wonders: Did Israel strike Gaza because they celebrated the reconciliation agreement?

Well, only if one counts rockets fired into Israel as “celebration.” The IDF struck targets in Gaza this week as Hamas continued firing rockets at civilian targets in Israel, which happened to coincide with the announcement of the Palestinian reconciliation agreement between Hamas and Fatah. CNN’s Jim Clancy spends four minutes discussing the agreement with PLO official Hanan Ashrawi without once mentioning the years-long rocket attacks from Gaza by Hamas, or even whether the PLO will push Hamas to stop the attacks now that it’s back in the Palestinian Authority government.

However, as soon as former ambassador Dore Gold appears on the show, Clancy suddenly wants to know why Israel attacked Gaza and ended up creating civilian casualties on the ground, starting off by accusing Israel of attacking civilians deliberately because they were celebrating the agreement:

I used to read the Jerusalem Post every day - rockets after rockets after rockets for years. I kept wanting Israel to level Gaza. CNN is nuts.

I watched CNN yesterday most of the day because they were constantly staying on the Nevada rancher stomping on him as being a racist and dumping on every conservative who has supported him, including Fox News, and Hannity in particular. Really, it went on all day. It bumped their continual coverage on the plane and ship that went down. Those two things were hardly mentioned, it was Bundy is a racist, conservatives must dump him, Fox News is wrong, Bundy is a racist, etc., etc........
