Are you party to the below?
I think this is not why you created The Oz!
IS THAT ALL THERE IS TO MANIPULATION!?

IE - FIND A QUOTE! Any quote.
Shame on you for editorial Israel moves on child justice 11/2
You quote President Obama:
''Obama warned, that Palestinian children on the West Bank grow up regarding the Israeli Defence Forces as a “foreign” army.''
You laud Israeli Justice Minister Livni via:
''WISELY, Israeli Justice Minister Tzipi Livni has moved swiftly to correct the worst excesses of the treatment of Palestinian children...''
And you have the gall / chutzpah to laud Lyons multiple attacks on Israel merely now via the ABC vehicle - simultaneously lacerating them currently in scores of current articles!
You have contradicted from better times when you did not have the ‘support Lyons agenda’ - your own earlier editorials like THE OZ: 21/1/13 Israel settles down for election.
Here you criticise Obama.
It would have been honest of your editorial writer to point out LIVNI’S outrageous apartheid and pogrom accusations against Israel![ see above]
And you ignore the multiple references your own great Greg Sheridan makes lacerating Obama - with adverse defacto compliments / comparison with the lamentable Carter. Yes - Carter was a better President: he did not dare to do / say in office what he did afterwards!
Never mind what Sheridan must have written about the disparate treacheries of Livni: your editorial even implies that there are ''worse [other] excesses'' that Livni has to solve by apparently salving your hide! Shame on you: where is any context to the mass - murderers in the so - called Palestinian 'justice'' system? How many Palestinians murdered in the middle of snowstorms?... who even think of speaking their minds?
Livni is Justice Minister merely to enable government.
Basis of what she has said - she is a leftist disgrace.
And you have the gall / chutzpah to laud the ABC having simultaneously lacerating them currently in scores of articles and editorials.
