Three Strikes Against the Boston Globe

A Boston Globe staff-ed on the peace talks just struck out.

Strike one: The Globe assumes the Palestinians support a two-state solution. Actually, that support is falling.

Strike two: The Globe also assumes that the Israeli government's incitement index is aimed at extremists. But the index is aimed at the PA and its media services.

Strike three: The Globe equates radical settlers and Islamic extremists in terms of being part of the Israeli and Palestinian mainstream. Radical settlers are not part of Israel's mainstream. But as a Palestinian Media Watch study shows, the glorification of terror among Palestinians comes from the PA itself, not fringe elements.

A little fact-checking should have caught the first two strikes. But the third strike is a sad, sad, consequence of the MSM being out to lunch on issues like the West Bank's Abu Jihad sports complex.
