Getting his Bloomies in a twist

You could forgive Dubai's Bloomberg cubicle slaves for getting a little hot under their collars. Uber-boss Michael Bloomberg - 100% owner of the media corp - has gone on a well-publicised (naturally) tour of Israel to pledge his support.

Bloomberg (the man, not the newswire) issued some heart-felt quotes after he was "hustled" to a bomb shelter. "It gives you great comfort to know that the Israelis are doing everything they can to protect their people, but sadly there is no defense against a rocket if it hits you."

All in all, a worry for the large and growing bureau based in DIFC?

shame on gulf news for an editorial both disgusting and embarassing even by their own non-existent standards:

"Today, the whole world stands as a witness to the fact that the Nazi holocaust was a mere lie, which was devised by the Zionists to blackmail humanity. The same Zionist entity swindled the world out of billions of dollars over the years to compensate the wrong and unjust which they claim to have been inflicted on their people.

It is evident that the holocaust was a conspiracy hatched by the Zionists and Nazis, and many innocent people gave their lives as a result of this inhuman plot."

that gulf new piece is awful, i cant beleive they would print such a thing?!?! really, that is so bad. that is actually inciting hatred!

i am sympathising with the palestinians at the moment, i dont take sides but they are really getting it bad at the moment - someone in power should do something about it definately 100% BUT the GN should NOT be printing this stuff. what's next, advocating putting blacks back into slavery?
