Wars on the news
Why is Israel and Hamas war the only war mentioned on the news in US when there are over 40 armed conflicts around the world today?

I truly would like to know!
I'm not conceited, but god knows I have reason to be!

Well, one segment of the US population shares the beliefs of one side of the dispute, while another segment of the population shares common beliefs with the other side of the dispute. Then there is the portion of the US that believes the dispute is necessary in order for the return of their messiah.
Lastly, there is another segment of the population that is either concerned about the larger economic impact of the conflict, or something more basic, like the cost of gasoline.

It all comes down to the big "R" my friend... Ratings.

Israel is militarily superior by far but the Palestinans/Iran/etc are far more PR savvy.

How Hamas became so deadly Funded and equipped by Iran, it could overwhelm Israel's Iron Dome

A guiding ideological goal of the Islamic Republic, especially in its first decade or so, has been to export its Islamic Revolution; it has courted Islamic across groups the region for almost 40 years. Iran supported Hamas from its beginnings in in 1987 as an offshoot of the Islamist group the Muslim Brotherhood. But it was only when the Palestine Liberation Organisation *PLO* began to consider peace with Israel in the 1990s that their relationship really blossomed. Mousa Abu Marzouk, a Hamas leader, visited Tehran and reportedly extracted a promise of $30 million annually — as well as military training for thousands of Hamas activists at Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps *IRGC* bases in Iran and Lebanon.

When Israel withdrew from Gaza in 2005 the relationship was sealed; Hamas’s victory in the 2006 Palestinian elections meant a terror group, supported by Tehran, was now in charge of Gaza. International aid dried up, so the Iranians pumped in money, and with it of course, an influence that was now unrivalled.

It has been that way ever since. In the words of Mahmoud Abbas, President of the Palestinian National Authority that governs the West Bank: “Hamas is funded by Iran. It claims it is financed by donations, but the donations are nothing like what it receives from Iran.”




Leftist luvvies have long fallen for the PR.

So, clickbait.

The reason why you do not know the answer to your question is becuase you refuse to believe that the USA is fully owned and controlled by Israel.

Maybe not entirely true but not too far off either, IMO
