When is it OK to be a "settler"?
As an example, consider the following Ha'aretz headline:
Settler group takes over two compounds in E. Jerusalem
(West Bank Mama does a great job highlighting the extreme media bias found in this headline - and article - in her post: Since When is Buying an Apartment Building "Taking Over a Compound"?)
That being the case, when is it ok, in the eyes of the media, for a Jew to move into an apartment in eastern Jerusalem?
When you're Mordechai Vanunuu - the man who betrayed the Jewish People and State by releasing highly classified information relating to Israel's nuclear program, as is apparent from the following headline:
Vanunu to move into east Jerusalem apartment
Could it be that there is a double standard at play here?
For instance, if you are a proud Jew who seeks to strengthen the Jewish State and its hold on the Land of Israel by legally purchasing an apartment in eastern Jerusalem, then you are a settler who is taking over a compound. However, if you happen to be a Jew (who has since converted to Christianity), who is an enemy to both the Jewish State and People, then, in the eyes of the media, you are just a regular guy moving into an apartment that coincidentally happens to be located in eastern Jerusalem.
