Suck it, Syrians. No Journos for You.

Some (ahem) 'journalists' never even travel to Israel before writing a book about it. Other journalists and 'activists' love going to Israel. Why?

Tal Dror:
I asked them once this one clichéd question that always comes to mind – "So why Israel of all places? Why not SyriaEgypt? Russia or China?" One of them put on a serious face. "Are you insane?" he asked me. "These are all extremely dangerous places!"
It's also about the beer at the end of a long day.

As Dror notes, that's why you'll have wall-to-wall coverage if an Israeli soldier smacks someone in the face. Whereas if a Syrian is merely shot in the street, nobody even notices.

Read it all.
