Since the shooting of Michael Brown by a white policeman and the ensuing riots and looting in Ferguson, MO, Americans have been told, yet again, that there is an epidemic of crime against black people in this country. But is there really a race war, and if so, which side is actually waging it?
It is a historical moment in Hawai’i politics; two native Hawaiian’s running for the two highest offices in the State. James “Duke” Aiona is running for the governorship, and Elwin Ahu is running for lieutenant governor.

Translation: OK, Here are at “Hamas Rocket-R-Us”, are busy setting up our effort to kill our children and women! We know that firing these rockets at Israel will bring massive destruction and death to our people!
We Love It! That’s our goal at Hamas and Sons, to bring more death and destruction to our lives! No need to thank us! We love death!

In a surprising segment, CNN’s New Day discussed the role of the media in the Israel-Hamas conflict and whether they are providing proper context regarding the two sides. In an interview with co-host Kate Bolduan, guest Lee Habeeb, columnist for National Review, slammed the media for its biased coverage of the issue, going so far as to suggest that they have acted as “co-conspirators to Hamas.”
When Bolduan asked where Habeeb believed the media was lacking, he argued that “the point of the spear is the media and dead children and dead women…and I don’t believe the media is covering it.” Toward the end of the segment, Bolduan cited Hamas political leader Khaled Mashal, who claimed that the U.S. has now adopted the Israeli narrative. The New Day co-host wondered how it could go both ways. Habeeb blasted the media again:
"I just wonder in the newsrooms of America and the world, are you wondering, are you pausing to reflect upon the idea that maybe you’re being used as dupes by very evil regimes to make the case that Israel and Hamas are the same, that they have the same world vision, that they have the same visions for their citizens and their people? I’d ask this. Where would you rather be a woman or someone who is gay? Israel, or anywhere else in the Middle East?"
Earlier, Habeeb elaborated on the importance of properly contextualizing Hamas and Israel. The National Review columnist objected to the notion that the two sides are the same, ripping the pro-Hamas coverage: “And I think presenting this story as a story of the Hatfields and McCoys, as a moral equivalency between Israel and Hamas, is a tragedy and a fatal error by the media. These are Nazis, Hamas. They’re making life miserable for the people of Gaza.”
Habeeb hoped that the world would recognize “that radical Islam is the problem, whether it’s Hamas, whether it’s ISIS, whether it’s Al Qaeda.” He labeled Hamas and radical Islam as the “monster in the room,” and stated it was clear that “the good guys in this case are Israel and the bad guys are Hamas.” While the media in general has been overwhelming in its anti-Israel slant, CNN did well to bring on a guest to criticize that coverage and denounce the moral equivalence that is often made when discussing the Israel-Hamas conflict.
