As Israel steps up it's offensive, why does the story drop further and further down in the headlines?

The death toll is not slowing down in momentum, they've moved in more troops, there's footage of them using white phosphorus bombs and yet today the story was only on the second page in the New York Times, 10 minutes in on BBC after being the top story for 2 weeks, 15 minutes in on CNN.

Was this nothing more than a passing entertainment for the people not directly effected?

    I think this should be on every news broadcast:

    Excerpts from a speech by Hamas MP Fathi Hammad, broadcast on Al-Aqsa TV on February 29, 2008:

    Fathi Hammad: [The enemies of Allah] do not know that the Palestinian people has developed its [methods] of death and death-seeking. For the Palestinian people, death has become an industry, at which women excel, and so do all the people living on this land. The elderly excel at this, and so do the mujahideen and the children. This is why they have formed human shields of the women, the children, the elderly, and the mujahideen, in order to challenge the Zionist bombing machine. It is as if they were saying to the Zionist enemy: "We desire death like you desire life." (THIS IS THE MOST MORALLY BANKRUPT STATEMENT I HAVE EVER HEARD!!)

    From the Hamas Charter:

    "Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it." (The Martyr, Imam Hassan al-Banna, of blessed memory).

    "There is no solution for the Palestinian question except through Jihad. Initiatives, proposals and international conferences are all a waste of time and vain endeavors."
