Undoubtedly, within minutes it would be transmitted throughout the global corporate mainstream media to promote the idea of regime change in Damascus. But because it happened in Palestine, you will not see it. This, and much worse levels of apartheid brutality and depravation have been allowed to carry on in Palestine for the last 65 [...]

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The gloves are off.
The special election to replace Congressman Anthony Weiner has turned downright nasty.
