THE MIDDLE EAST: Israeli misinformation

Hank Levin charges that in the Middle East both sides are spreading misinformation: "Yes, there is horrible misinformation on both sides. and this must be recognized. How about the Jenin massacre which was broadcast throughout the world, including the U.S., even though an investigation by a UN team found no evidence of anything approaching a massacre ? The US has a strong Israeli bias; Europe has a strong Palestinian bias (based upon my continuous contact with European media and colleagues and our conversations in Spain, Holland, and France). We need to find a basis for both a Palestinian state and a just peace, and it is not attainable by asserting that only side provides misinformation in the propaganda war".
