Rockets hit Lebanon despite cease-fire

I’m a huge fan of Opinion Journal. They caught this little bit of biased reporting against Israel on their Best of the Web Today column:

Stop Hitting Yourself!
“Rockets Hit Lebanon Despite Cease-Fire” reads an Associated Press headline from yesterday. Oh, those treacherous Zionists, blasting away at Lebanon despite the cease-fire! Well, actually, no. As the second paragraph of the story reports:

Hezbollah guerrillas fired at least 10 Katyusha rockets that landed in southern Lebanon early Tuesday, the Israeli army said, adding that nobody was injured. The army said that none of the rockets, which were fired over a two-hour period, had crossed the border and so it had not responded.

This casts the headline in a somewhat different light, no?

Immediately following was this little gem:

Why Not Let Israel Find Them?
“Bush: Hezbollah Lost”–headline, Middle East Online, Aug. 15

Shalom.
