As hundreds of rockets were raining down on Israel, HonestReporting CEO Daniel Pomerantz spoke live on South Africa’s E.tv News. From a Tel Aviv bomb shelter, he explained how media are confusing cause and effect in their reporting on the most recent escalation.

“Hamas, an extremist militant group that wants to appear relevant, started firing rockets indiscriminately at Jerusalem, including at all of the holy sites such as the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, Al-Aqsa Mosque, the Western Wall, and now at Tel Aviv as well. That’s the story of what happened,” Pomerantz asserted.
