AP Reeking of Bias As Usual

• Views: 1,384

The incredibly biased wire service reporting from the Palestinian territories is relentless, no matter how often they’re criticized and caught lying. Today Associated Press propagandist Ibrahim Barzak reports on a clash between Hamas terrorists and the IDF in which a terrorist’s daughter was killed, and gets seven paragraphs into his slanted article before mentioning that the heavily armed thugs inside the house started shooting first: Palestinian girl killed in heavy Gaza clashes.

And of course, in risible pieces of agitprop like this, you’ll never find a hint of awareness that Hamas creeps regularly surround themselves with children on purpose, as human shields.

It’s a win-win for the terrorists. If the children get killed in the crossfire instead of serving their purpose as shields, Hamas still gets a propaganda bonus from the Associated Press.

The only real loser here is the 14-year old girl.

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip - Israeli forces grabbed a Hamas field commander from his Gaza home Saturday, setting off heavy fighting that killed the wanted man’s 14-year-old daughter and wounded 10 Palestinians, including seven gunmen.

The battle in the northern Gaza town of Beit Lahiya pitted Israeli helicopter gunships and tanks against Hamas men with mortars, homemade bombs and automatic rifles.

The fighting illustrated that Egypt’s latest attempt to broker a truce between Hamas and Israel remains a long shot at best. Hamas has offered to hold its fire for six months, provided Israel ends its nearly yearlong blockade of Gaza, but Israeli officials have been cool to the idea.

Damascus-based Hamas chief Khaled Mashaal said Saturday that acceptance of a cease-fire would be merely a “tactic” in the group’s struggle with the Jewish state.

The target of Saturday’s arrest raid was Talat Hassan Marouf, a Hamas field commander in northern Gaza. Hamas did not provide details about Marouf, but as a field commander in the border area with Israel he would presumably be involved in firing rockets at Israeli border communities.

The Israeli military did not publish his name, saying only that troops had seized a wanted militant.

At some point, Israeli forces surrounded Marouf’s house, with the family inside, and heavy fighting erupted. The military said troops came under fire from inside the house.
