More Syria Strikes, More Headline Bias

The Huffington Post once again was on top of the news of Israel's latest conflict with Syria, showing 200% more dedication to that than the renewed rocket attacks from Gaza. But once again, the headline was nice and biased:

Israel shells Syria after "Golan Heights Mortar Blast"? What the heck does that mean? A mortar just exploded in the Golan out of the blue?

Even the article is biased in the text: "An Israeli tank struck a Syrian army vehicle Monday after a mortar shell landed on Israeli-held territory." Dang those naturally occurring mortar shells! I hate it when they randomly appear for no reason!

This kind of anti-Israel headline bias is as common as it is blatant. Shame on the Huffington Post and its editors.
