Believe it or not, one of these two photographs is real.
Masked Palestinian Hamas militants speak to the press during a press conference in Gaza City, Wednesday, Sept. 30, 2009. Israel and Hamas militants announced a deal Wednesday that will see Israel release 20 Palestinian women from prison this week in exchange for a videotape proving that a captive Israeli soldier held in the Gaza Strip is still alive. The decision was the first tangible sign of movement in more than three years of talks over the release of the soldier, Sgt. Gilad Schalit, who has not been seen since he was captured by Hamas-linked militants in a cross-border raid in June 2006. (AP Photo/Hatem Moussa)
For the first time in a while, the press has decided that it's safe to run glamor shots from a Hamas press conference again. Those of you who are new to this site might not remember, but Snapped Shot was involved in loudly protesting such thug conferences back in the day, which I believe had led to these photos being barred from the newswires.
Until now, that is.
What is plain and true and good is lost on the erudite barbarians in the press:
So, again I raise the same questions as before to the morally-challenged members of the press who allow this to continue:
Would you have attended these press conferences if the Ku Klux Klan was hosting one about the evils of the civil rights movement? Would you be going out of your way to provide the Nazi German point of view during coverage of World War II?
And editors, would you allow glowing coverage of either of those two groups to dominate your news coverage?
Because Hamas, an organization which has genocide written into its constitution, is no better than either of those two groups—and yet, you seem to think that the news consumers of the world are dying to know what Hamas has to say.
Coverage of these disgusting murderous thugs must stop. Unless you don't mind destroying every last shred of your credibility, that is.
