NYT Once Again Unaware of Terrorists in Gaza

The New York Times once again appears to be unaware of the presence of terrorists in the Gaza Strip. In a new report on developments in the latest round of Israel-Hamas violence, theTimes says:

On Sunday, Israeli forces attacked two buildings housing local broadcasters and production companies used by foreign outlets. Israeli officials denied targeting journalists, but on Monday Israeli forces again blasted the Al Sharouk block, a multiuse building where many local broadcasters, as well as Sky News of Britain and the channel Al Arabiya, had offices.

That attack, which struck a computer shop on the third floor, sparked a blaze that sent plumes of dark smoke creeping up the sides of the building. Video footage showed clouds of smoke billowing.

The Times leaves out the story’s single most relevant piece of information: Four senior Islamic Jihad terrorists were using the media building as a hideout. They were killed in the Israeli strike.

    It is my understanding that Israel took out a Hamas broadcasting station and kind of changed the programming to something a bit more …. wholesome, I guess you could say.
    Kudos to Israel. I would love to be part of the IDF.

    Israel is justified in what they do:

    “Muhammed Shamalah, commander of Hamas forces in the southern Strip and head of the Hamas militant training programs, was targeted by an Israeli air strike while driving a car clearly labelled “TV”, indicating it to be a press vehicle, abusing the protection afforded to journalists.”

    There are NO terrorists in Gaza–there are “freedom fighters” and those brave journalists covering their inspriational struggle; the NY Times said so and they wouldn’t lie. [sarcasm off]

    Remember when “Gaza” was “The Gaza Strip”–just a bit of land left over from the Ottoman Empire?

    Now it is probably some mythical holy spot where Mohammed (spit) ascended to Aisha’s crib on a golden unicorn. And we’re probably paying for the Gaza sooper mosque they’re no doubt building.

    National Geographic shares the same ignorance. In this month’s edition of NG, there is an extensive article about the tunnels of Gaza, and how they are used for commercial merchandise, and what a lifeline they are for the poor Israeli oppressed Palestinians. There is fleeting reference to weapons smuggling and that’s it…
