This article is yellow journalism at its finest.  Most egregiously, this article intentionally leaves out the word "rubber" when it claims that police "entered the compound, firing bullets."  The original article being quoted says "rubber bullets".  That's not an honest mistake.  That's intentionally trying to mislead the reader as to what happened.  What an embarrassingly obvious and amateurish smear attempt.  

The entire article is in the same vein.  "[V]iolence has broken out"?  No, Palestinians attacked police.  "A tree caught fire"?  No, Palestinians intentionally or accidentally set fire to the tree while hurling "fireworks" at police.  "Fireworks" my ass, or do you think they're throwing ladyfingers at the cops or entertaining them with Roman candles?  This all occurs as Palestinians attempt to kill random civilians by shooting rockets into population centers.

This is an editorial, a childishly simplistic one at that, and should be reported as such and not grouped with news.
