Here is a short list of a few of the hundreds of examples of the media intentionally manipulating the public to support Israel’s recent offensive against Palestinians

Please reblog or message with additions as you see/think of them and I will edit with the additions. I am sure we can create quite a large list of examples.
America’s major news channels can’t afford to take a side, the second we say that Israel is scum (which they are) we have a whole new set of problems on our hands that we can’t afford, you know with us currently still involved in hopeless Afghanistan and what looks to be WWIII looming on the horizon. Israel being an ally of the US for decades has brought all sorts of problems for us, and this is just the latest of those problems. There’s not a single (logical) American soul that doesn’t cry out for help for the hundreds being killed, but the crazy times are instilling fear into Americans that maybe those same shells will be dropped on our schools and our children.
I’m afraid you misunderstand the situation. The U.S. isn’t afraid of Israel’s military power. The U.S. created Israel’s military power and uses it as a foothold in the region to further acts of imperialism/domination (mostly for oil). The U.S. gives Israel 3 billion dollars every year in military aid to that end. That’s $8,219,178 every. single. day.
