Did God Promise Palestine To The Jews?

For some reason or the other the Sri Lankan print media has, in recent times, taken a very pro-Israel stance. When they carry stories of the Middle East conflict from western agencies like Reuter, AFP or BBC it can be excused because such agencies are heavily biased in favour of Israel. But when editorials and articles by ‘readers’ appear frequently you begin to raise an eyebrow or two. It becomes worst when they papers refuse or deny the reader of a ‘right of reply’. Such is the case with The Island, once a progressive newspaper, but no it has joined the ‘mainstream’ carrying different stories and editorials whilst following the same pro-Israel and pro-establishment theme as other newspapers.
