Is it fair to vote down answers because you think they are biased?
How do you KNOW their opinions are more biased than yours? If a quotation was reported in a publication you think has a bias, that doesn't mean it isn't factual. A "quote" or "fact" in pro-Arab Al Jazeera may be as true or could be as false as one in the pro-Israeli settler Arutz Sheva radio and internet network. Either's "facts" could be out of context, too!
Let me tell you a personal story: In 1996 I was with my family for my daughter's bat mitzvah in Jerusalem. During our first days there, there was a lot of Arab publicity about how they were going to build an addition to Al Aqsa Mosque in Solomon's Stables -- which were not neither stables nor Solomon's, but was part of the Herodian Temple complex and should have been excavated by archeologists before any building commenced. The Waqf -- the Moslem caretakers of the mosque would have nothing to do with archeologists. Archeologists were demanding something be done, but the government wasn't taking the bait, I though. They figured that Arafat was looking for a fight, and was looking for an excuse. Nothing happened that day.
On the day after Yom Kippur we planned to see the Kotel tunnel tour, which at the time was an archeological dig underneath the housing in the Arab quarter adjacent to the Wall of the Temple Mount (aka the Kotel). From the Kotel plaza, where people pray at the Wall, the tunnel runs directly north in the direction of the Dome of the Rock, but on the other side of the mamouth walls placed there by Herod and are about six feet wide, I'd guess. No way did we ever go east of the Western Wall. Impossible. Until that day, the tunnel patrons had to exit out the same door they entered, at the plaza. But that day, for the first time ever, an exit into the Arab quarter had been opened and my tour was the first to go out it. We were told that the city government wanted us to buy from the Arab merchants in the Old City, and also, the exit would solve traffic jams inside the tunnel. Fine.
We were also told, that since we were the first, we would be on television, and should not say anything provocative. We didn't. Before we left, we saw a well dressed Palestinian Arab in white clothing come down the exit to inspect us. I never saw or heard of that man again, despite all of the events soon to occur. On our exit, I saw lots of tv cameras, but never saw myself on television (probably because we were too well behaved -- bad television). I saw lots of police in riot gear, and all of the Arab shops but one were closed in protest of our exit. As far as I knew, I was no threat to the Arab people or Palestinian statehood.
We walked from the Arab Quarter to the Jaffa gate and went to the post office to buy stamps to mail postcards. Just then, I saw cars of riot police heading for the Kotel. I told my wife that there must be trouble. When we got to our room, CNN showed Yassir Arafat claiming that my tunnel tour had gone underneath the Al Aqsa mosque (to do so we would have had to have gone to the other side of the six-foot Herodian wall and south and east -- we didn't -- also construction was completed seven years before). That announcement, apparently, started four days of rioting and heavy casualties. Today, a Palestinian "fact" site does not attribute the claims of damage to Al Aqsa to Arafat -- although I heard it from his lips when he said it -- and have it has twisted the incident into a claim of an attempt to judaize the Arab quarter -- something that hardly seems worth four days of rioting.
So let me turn the question back to you: given my personal experience, should I trust "Arab propaganda"? If you quoted that site to me, should I vote it down? Not everything it said is a lie. It might only earn two pinnochio noses on the Washington Post fact checker column. And my gut feeling -- that Arafat was looking for an excuse to have a small riot, may not be the correct context, or then again, it might. Who knows?
There is much that goes on where we only have half of the facts and context. It is difficult for any of us on the outside to know what is the whole truth. It is similarly impossible for those closest to the facts to understand the context.
If my house has been destroyed by a missile or members of my family killed, I don't want to hear context. I don't care. And whether I'm an Arab or Jewish Palestinian, I'm not going to go on television and discuss the politics or the military reasons or even the depths of international law. All I'm going to do is cry, and maybe even want vengence. And if I'm a reporter at the scene, I'm not going to ask the survivors about that, but I will take video images because death destruction and tears of the grieving make good television. The truth might not come out, really, but leet those who want the truth wait for 100 years the historians from the eventual winner's side to sit down and figure out which truth suits them best.
