Yesterday was the third anniversary of the massacre-that-never-was. Front Page’s extract from Natan Sharansky’s book, The Case For Democracy includes a reminder of the less than glorious performance of the British press. Remember these words next time you read another editorial denouncing the bloodthirsty Israelis:

The vilification rang out across the world, but the British press was in a class all by itself. The Independent called the Israeli opera­tion "a monstrous war crime." A. N. Wilson, writing for the Evening Standard, called it a "massacre, and a cover-up of genocide." The Guardian, not to be outdone, ran a lead editorial opining that "Jenin was every bit as repellent in its particulars, no less distressing, and every bit as man made, as the attack on New York on September 11."
