Time Magazine Still Thinks It's All Up To Israel

Ruthie Blum notes the media's fixation on Israel and the absurd things it makes they say:
Meanwhile, as the mullahs and their mad scientists work tirelessly to perfect nuclear warheads, and as the rest of the Middle East is in the midst of internal Islamic takeovers, Time magazine has devoted this week’s cover story to Israel’s prime minister.

“King Bibi,” is the headline, referring to the only leader in the entire Middle East who is not at the helm by virtue of his lineage, religious decree, or through the slaughtering of his opponents (other than at the ballot box, that is).
The sub-headline reads: “He’s conquered Israel. But will Netanyahu now make peace — or war?”

It never ceases to boggle the mind that anyone exists on this planet who refuses to accept the fact that neither Netanyahu or any other Israeli prime minister has the ability to “make peace” with any entity that refuses to relinquish its aim at annihilating the Jewish state. Nor has Netanyahu or any other prime minister before him ever “made war.” War is and always has been waged against Israel.
The media's job is to make money--which is a good thing.
Because if the media's job were to provide intelligence, analysis and policy--we'd really be in trouble.
