The Lie Lives - Vote "no"! Inside the Battle of Jenin is about as even-handed as Captain Hook. The text is not too terrible - but in conjunction with the photo essay, the net effect is to show the "poor Palestinian" victims. No picture of Israelis accompanies the text. And as far as I know--though I generally avoid Time--they've not shown the inhumanity of the Arabs toward Israelis or toward themselves, this way. There is a poll on the page, and ostensibly 4 million people have taken it, of whom - as of today - two-thirds believe that Israel committed human rights violations in Jenin.

For what it's worth, go there and vote "no."
