When one reviews the statistics of recent Middle East/African conflicts, one can wonder why the Israeli-Arab conflict registers so highly on the megaphone of the world's media. The fighting between Israel and the Palestinians, as well as Israel and its current conflict with the Hezbollah in Lebanon, is to a degree one of the smallest scale conflicts in the region - yet it gathers 100x more media attention then something like the violence in Darfur.
