One particular event cast a sickening pall over the entire year, and in doing so reminded us that our world became ever more violent and perverse in 2009. Although this event itself ended in January, its fallout continued and will be felt for years to come.

The event is significant not only because it was premeditated slaughter, but also because it did incalculable damage did to Israel’s propaganda industry.
