Media Gets it Backwards on Israel

Dailymail headline during Operation Enduring Silence in Gaza

Headlines like the above screenshot from the Dailymail are upsetting to Israel and the people who care about Israel: “Israel’s army ‘is ready to launch a ground invasion’ into Gaza after militants fired more than 450 rockets into its territory in the past 24 hours”

They’re upsetting because they get things exactly backwards, so that the implication is that Israel is the aggressor, which is definitely not the case. That title should have been:
“Gaza militants fire more than 450 rockets into Israel in 24 hours. Israel prepares to launch ground invasion response.”

Is it any wonder that Israel is losing worldwide support with the media shooting out headlines like this as Israeli children sleep in bomb shelters?
