For those seeking the truth of the situation along the Gaza border, the leaders of Hamas, which rules the coastal enclave, are only too happy to oblige.
"…when we talk about 'peaceful resistance' we are deceiving the public," Hamas leader Mahmoud Al-Zahar unabashedly pronounced in an interview with Al-Jazeera.
In fact, Al-Zahar seemed somewhat miffed that his interviewer suggested that the Gaza protests were "peaceful."
Hamas' rivals in the Palestinian Authority are likewise pulling no punches when it comes to the real nature of what's happening in Gaza…at least when they speak in Arabic.
In a Friday sermon two weeks ago, Mahmoud Habbash, a senior adviser to PA President Mahmoud Abbas, lambasted Hamas for sending children to the Gaza border to violently confront Israeli soldiers.
The truth is out there, and readily available.
But it's convenient for the international community, and in particular the mainstream media, to ignore what's said in Arabic as they pursue an agenda that's grossly biased against Israel.
