Newspaper from San Francisco, California, shows its primitive anti-Israeli bias

A few months ago the San Francisco Chronicle, the largest newspaper in the San Francisco Bay Area, reprinted an article from the anti-Israel Egyptian press without telling its readers (click here for more details).

On August 19, Islamic terrorists executed two homicide bombings in Baghdad, Iraq, and Jerusalem, Israel, killing dozens and injuring hundreds, including many children (click here for details).

Biased headlines from the San Francisco Chronicle

The next day, the San Francisco Chronicle clearly showed its anti-Israeli bias by printing two very different headlines describing the Islamic homicide bombings. Headlines are powerful elements of any news story, for a headline is the first (and oftentimes the only) item seen by the reader.

On first headline, describing the attack in Iraq against the United Nations, we can read the following:

Suicide bomb hits U.N. in Iraq, kills at least 20

In a smaller font, at the bottom of the page, to describe the murder of 21 Israelis, including 6 children, we read:

Suicide bomber threatens Mideast road map

Let's analyze the first headline, describing the Islamic homicide bombing in Iraq:

1) The verb "kill" is used. The main story is that 20 people were murdered as a result of a homicide bombing - this is indeed the story.
2) We also learn that the victims were U.N. employees, since the U.N. was "hit".
3) There's no mention that the terrorist was Muslim - even in this case the liberal politically correct San Francisco Chronicle could not bring itself to explicitly mention that Islamic murderers were responsible for the bloodshed.

Let's now look at the second headline, describing the deliberate murder of Israeli women, children and babies:

1) There is no mention that the homicide bombing was executed by a Palestinian mass murderer from Islamic Jihad or Hamas.
2) There is no mention of the fact that the deliberate targets of this mass murderer were Israeli women, children and babies (not the Israeli military).
3) There is no mention on the number of killed or injured.
4) In fact the main story for the San Francisco Chronicle is a danger to something called a "road map", a political plan to create a Palestinian state. So much for respecting the memories of those that were killed a few hours ago in simply mentioning their tragedy.
