Say What??


I just couldn't believe this when I saw the King of Jordan describing the Israeli Palestinian conflict as "the core issue of the Middle East". I can't really believe that this is THE only thing thats going on. I don't know, revolutions left and right? Then again, there is so much reporting about Israel its not hard to see why he might think that!

  1. He didn't say it was the "only" issue, but that it was the "core" issue, which I think makes the whole difference. Not that I think that he is right but I think that the abundant coverage of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is simply due to the fact that the partisanship on this topic is really strong and therefore the topic probably sells well.
