Travel back in time almost a year, to July 21 2017, and read Media selectively report on Jerusalem unrest; the clock keeps ticking... So much goes on in Israel-Palestine every single day, that we don't hear about: when Palestinian rights are trampled, the media is generally silent. But when a Palestinian sins, it is broadcast widely.
