Untold stories.

As shown before (read here and here), not only what the Spanish mainstream media tells must be taken into account in order to understand the way it treats Israel; for this purpose, what the media doesn't tell is also important. Misinformation and deception don't only come from half-truths, exaggerations and fabrications, but also from deliberate omissions.

Spanish mainstream media usually denounces how a Palestinian refugee problem was prompted by Israel; what the media doesn't tell here is that the Palestinian Ambassador to Lebanon, Abdullah Abdullah, declared in September, 2011, that the Palestinian refugees in countries such as Lebanon or Jordan, as well as even inside the Palestinian territories, wouldn't be eligible to become citizens of the proposed Palestinian State, if created.

Does it make sense when it is usually alleged that a hypothetical Palestinian State would be created in order to serve precisely as a national homeland for the Palestinian people? If the Palestinian refugee problem is so important for the Spanish media from a humanitarian perspective, why not to denounce Abdullah and for this future policy he is announcing?

Is it maybe because Abdullah Abdullah is Palestinian instead of Israeli and works for the P.L.O. but not for Israel?
