Misuse of words and phrases
By the use of words such as "clashes" or "fierce fighting between the Israelis and the Palestinian militants", the corporate media give the impression that there is a parity between the two sides. As the chart on the right shows, this is far from the truth. This explains why the number of Israeli military casualties in the 'clashes' is almost always zero.

For a list of misleading words and phrases see Alternative Media and Criticism of Western media -- Read it .. u neeed to know it ..

When zionis (real ones) not fakies speak .. they will use these terminologies..
