“I’ve been in the news business for 37 years. I’ve never seen a story about that factory we visited today. 6,000 workers, half of them Palestinians, all treated the same. The fact is that people in the States don’t hear those stories. What they hear is: something’s blown up, somebody’s been shot, something’s been bombed and there’s a conflict going on. They don’t hear the good news.”
Why would you not find this kind of article in the Guardian?
“I think there’s a sense that they want to side with the Palestinians because they perceive the Palestinians as the underdog. I think that’s a flawed perception, because when you look at the Arab states that are allied against Israel, their history of wars against Israel, their public statements that they’ll only be happy when all the Jews are gone and Israel is erased from the map, and then you perceive the Israelis as the powerful entity and the Palestinians as the underdog? It’s just the opposite, as a matter of fact.”
