The Palestines even though they have the Israeli’s citizenship, don’t want to establish alliance. This done. Ex: USA and many other countries.

Another illegal land grab by the Netanyahu government. When is President Obama going to send the Israeli government a message that these illegal actions have got to stop and stop NOW! And when will the Palestinians declare unilaterally their state with its capltol in East Jeruselem.

Also, by the way, your reporter refers to Queen Elizabeth II as "the Queen of England." The reporter in question needs a geography lesson. Queen elizabeth II is the Queen of England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland; better known as the United Kingdom. How about a retraction or correction in your next broadcast?

When will the press step up to the plate and call it like it is? We've seen enough...enough bloodshed, enough land grabbing and enough international laws being broken by a rogue state that is making mincemeat out of democracy.

And the press/media just ignore these facts. How about asking WHY DOES ISRAEL CONTINUE TO IGNORE LAWS that are made to keep the peace?

In the long run, the press will be responsible for not reporting how THEY see it, and HOW it is, and only reporting what they are told by lobby groups-told what NOT to say-and told what and when to say it.

Its fair to say Palestine is an occupied territory -a term Media was told to stay away from for quite awhile.

CNN has done a fair job in Europe. When it comes to the USA, CNN is following another network in the US viewed by many as tabloid material and NOT worthy of real news. Stop trying to be like them and be your true selves like you are in Europe.

At least CNN USA called it when they investigated 'Who broke the cease fire in the Mideast'. It was clearly Israel like you found out and reported.

So, be brave and call it like it is. Stop pandering to the Lobby groups and fake watchdogs backed up by lobby groups. Stop having money dictate what you report.

The press/Media can be the torch bearers lighting the road to peace.
