More and more like the 1930's...

So a group of German and Israeli researchers decided to analyze German textbooks to see what exactly German schools are teaching their students. They examined 1,200 history, geography and social studies textbooks from five German states, and concluded that these books portray Israel almost exclusively as a militarist, warmongering society.
Israel’s robust democracy, respect for human rights and other achievements are absent in these books. The illustrations consist of “tendentious and one-sided photographic presentations” of Israeli soldiers threatening or inflicting violence on Palestinians.
And the BBC has admitted it's on the enemy side:
“A BBC documentary has substituted the word ‘Israelis’ for ‘Jews’ in its translation of interviews with Palestinians, its maker has admitted.”

The New York Times: If the facts of a story don't suit the narrative, they'll change things.  Because the Preferred Narrative must be pushed at all costs to truth.

And now I'm going to try to get the mowing done before the heat index hits 'disgusting'.
