Israel: On Oprah's Visit

Israeli blogger Desert Peace is appalled that talk show Diva Oprah Winfrey accepted to pay Israel a solidarity visit.
“I only hope that if she comes here she will visit places like Ramallah, Jenin, Gaza, Bethlehem…. the list goes on. Let her see with her own eyes who the real terrorists are in this area. Let her watch the demolition of a home in East Jerusalem, let her visit the site of the disabled children's home demolished a few weeks ago.
“Let her visit with Bassam Aramin, the father of 10 year old Abir, murdered by Israeli soldiers while at play in her schoolyard. Let her stand at a checkpoint and watch a pregnant Palestinian woman be prevented from going to the hospital to have her child,” he writes.
