Blatant Idiocy

This is simply blatant idiocy on the part of the media. (via LGF)

Outrageous anti-Israel bias, still business as usual at Agence France Presse: Three more Palestinians shot dead in West Bank.

So what were these three more Palestinians doing when they were “shot dead?” They were Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades terrorists, shooting at Israeli troops from inside a house full of bombs.

The three Palestinians died inside a house that was surrounded by Israeli troops and inside which various explosions were heard, the sources said.

They all belonged to the radical Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, a nebulous faction loosely affiliated to Palestinian Authority president Mahmud Abbas’s Fatah party.

Medical sources named the dead men as 32-year-old Hamudeh Shtewi, Mohamad al-Surakji, 20, and Mohamad Abu Khamis.

An Israeli army spokeswoman told AFP that troops identified “hitting” three gunmen inside a house in the Balata camp after Palestinians opened fire on soldiers conducting an arrest operation.

This is almost as bad as the one yesterday:

Insane anti-Israel bias—business as usual at Agence France Presse: Palestinians denounce roadblocks outside Jericho.

JERICHO, West Bank (AFP) - Palestinian officials denounced Israel for reimposing two roadblocks outside Jericho, saying the move violates a 2005 deal giving them security control over the West Bank city.

The Israeli army confirmed that the roadblocks, one on the route to Jerusalem and the other leading to Ramallah, had been reestablished because a number of wanted militants had been freed from jail in Jericho.

“As a result of the release of several dozen prisoners from the jail in Jericho, the (army) has decided to step up security checks around the city in order to ensure the safety of Israeli civilians,” the military said on Wednesday.

So why isn’t the headline, “Palestinians release terrorists from jail”?

I have nothing to add. This stuff speaks for itself.

  1. It's an oldie, but nevertheless not outdated.

    A sad joke.

    A guy in Paris sees a pit bull attacking a toddler.
    He kills the pit bull and saves the child's life.
    Reporters swarmed the fellow.

    "Tell us! What's your name? All Paris will love you!
    Tomorrow's headline will be:

    "Parisian Hero Saves Girl from Vicious Dog!"

    The guy says, "Well, I'm not from Paris.

    "Reporters: "That's OK. Then the whole of France
    will love you and tomorrow's headline will read:

    'French Hero Saves Girl from Vicious Dog!'"

    The guy says, "I'm not from France, either."

    Reporters: "That's OK also. All Europe will love you.

    Tomorrow's headlines will shout:

    "European Hero Saves Girl from Vicious Dog!"

    The guy says, "I'm not from Europe, either.

    "Reporters: "So, where ARE you from?

    The guy says, "I'm from Israel."

    The next day's headlines read:

    "Israeli Murders a Dog, Leaves a Girl Bleeding!"

    "Israeli Brings Violence to Paris: a Pet is Murdered, Girl Wounded"

    "Israeli Attack: One Dead, a Wounded Toddler Rescued".

  2. Woland - Funny, in a sad sort of way. I've heard similar ones, and sadly you're right - they're never outdated.
