Israeli Arabs against Mubarak (Egyptian el presidente): Learn from Israel
Yes, really. Arab Israelis protested the way Egypt handled a bus accident and said they should have learned from Israel. Do you see this on Reuters, the AP, or AFP? Hellllz no! Relatives of Sinai accident casualties hold demonstration opposite Egyptian embassy in Tel Aviv, claim that Egypt authorities failed in treating injured, and protested a lenient sentence handed to bus driver. Egypt had forbidden the injured to be shipped to nearby Israel for treatment, which had resulted in at least one of the passengers dying. Meanwhile, Israelis, Jews, Muslims, and Christians alike, had lined up at blood centers to donate blood to help the Arab Israelis. Again, this got absolutely no mainstream media attention - but this also does not fit into the paradigm of Israel being an evil/racist regime.
