Take no side, tell all sides*

Following the award of the Nobel Peace Prize to President Obama, Reuters hits the pavement to gauge sentiment in the Middle East from Gaza to Iran. Though mixed overall, opinion is decidedly negative in Gaza with featured responses like this quote from Jehad Al-Rayes:

"He does not deserve anything. He deserves to be brought to trial just like the Jews on charges of war crimes. He backs Israel and whoever backs Israel is a partner in the crime."

We would have liked to compare this view with that of an Israeli but alas, Reuters doesn't interview any.

  1. Why should they? Who cares what an Israeli thinks? Certainly not Reuters!
