HP Bias: Schoolchildren in Gaza v. Israel

In war, the children are always the first to suffer. But in the Huffington Post's war on Israel, there is only one kind of child who suffers, the Palestinian child. Israeli children are forgotten.

The Huffington Post, in an incredible but unsurprising display of bias, published the following article in its World section:

The headline reads Gaza's Children Return to School, and as you can see, it generated well over 900 comments.

But you know who hasn't returned to school, and haven't been since late October due to rocket fire from Gaza? Israeli children. Do you know who hasn't gotten an article written about them for the Huffington Post? Israeli children.

I guess if you can't go to school,  you'd better hope you're Palestinian, otherwise the Huffington Post could care less.
