The Forward Still Stuck in Gear

Another Jewish Forward piece I found slightly intolerable.

Quoted a Reuters release.

I left this comment:

If the military, i.e., COGAT, does respond with a reply, you will give it adequate coverage, yes?

By the way, quoting Reuters when one presumes you have your own local correspondent seems a bit tawdry.

And including this claptrap: "Israel has occupied the West Bank and sown it widely with Jewish settlements since capturing it in the 1967 Middle East war along with East Jerusalem and Gaza - land Palestinians want for a future state.  Most countries consider the settlements illegal. Israel, which disputes this, cites historical and Biblical links to the West Bank and Jerusalem" is a bit cheap.

"Sown"?  Only "historical and Biblical links", or perhaps also legal ones, if you are already allowing Israel to 'dispute'?
