Does News Have to Be Logical?

Did you know that, as the Palestinian Authority's Minister for Prisoners' Affairs, Issa Qaraqe, has claimed that

Israel arrests 700 Palestinian minors on an annual basis, including some as young as 12 and 13. In a press statement, Mr Qaraqe said that 90 per cent of the children who are detained by Israel are subjected to torture, abuse, undue pressure and bargaining. He added that Israel is dealing with detained children as ticking bombs, lifting their immunity as minors, and it does not respect international laws with regard to dealing with children in detention. He called on the international community to launch a campaign to protect the children of Palestine.

Qaraqe is assured that 280 Palestinian children are languishing in Israeli prisons, and that a number of children, particularly those from different areas of Jerusalem, have been sentenced to "homestay", or removal from their places of residence.

Did anyone reading this think to him/herself - 'does Israel only arrest or does it also release'?

Or - 'does Israel just sweep the streets looking for minors'?

Do people look for logic in their information about our region?

This is logical. Will someone please bring to the attention of conservative american press/radio, that when confronted with what the opposing party states as a fact... that conservatives are racist and oppose BO because he is black. 99 percent of conservatives would vote for Herman Cain because he really is a black American. Bo is not a black American he is a three shades of gray, his culture is arabic, his hardrive is islamic, and he his opposed to everything America stands for including all their christian religions. He is an Islamic freak of nature, he is not black, Herman Cain is an american black, put their pictures side by side and you can see the difference.
