HOW TO VIEW THIS TIMELINE

This timeline contains news reports from the 20th and 21st century to display how so-called experts, a lot of journalists, and of course the Israelis themselves try to deflect your attention away from the fact that there is also an Israeli missile and space program in full swing. 

News reports may either look identical, similar or the same but are written in the views and/or policies the agencies and other sources may have. Therefore:

The views as expressed in the content of each of the news reports are solely those of the news agencies, broadcasters and any other media outlet. GLOSM.ORG is not responsible for the way events has been processed into interpretation to meet any editor's policy which is often the cause of biased reporting.
