Top of Mind Thursday July 17, 2014: Missing What Counts in the Middle East

Top of Mind Thursday
Sadly, the conflict between the Palestinians and Israel has escalated dramatically.

Leverage2Market LogoMany Western media are reporting this in terms of body counts. In this conflict, there have been more Palestinian deaths than Israeli ones.

All of these deaths are terrible. But there are two key points missed by just looking at body counts.

First, the Israeli Iron Dome is working to deflect and destroy most of the artillery shot into Israel so that it is not hitting civilians.

Second, many of the missile launcher sites in Gaza are purposely put inside schools, mosques, hospitals, and homes. This means destroying those launchers by definition kills civilians.

It’s easy to be misled by media portrayals that focus on the sensational without looking for the real story underneath. We need to use our judgment to understand what’s really happening. Only then can we create the kind of dialog that will get us to what really counts: de-escalating the tension to move towards peace.
