The Wash Post reporter at least makes an effort here to probe the "asymetry" of the death toll in Gaza (large) and Israel (zero) this week, which mirrors previous air battles there. He doesn't quite make the contrast as stark as it could be--the Palestinian rocketry is far worse and far more inaccurate than described and the Iron Dome results are always overly-hyped--and includes such as understatements as: "Even with these new weapons, Israel clearly outguns Palestinian fighters." But at least this is a start.
Meanwhile, NYT, long with head in sand on this, discovers Israeli "extremism" today.
