Hamas media bias Middle East Brutality

Hamas Machine Gunned Peaceful Protesters Murdering Two…….

It’s because that’s what they do. Life and the sanctity of that life means next to nothing to the fanatical religious supremacists called Hamas. Via Backspin, Tom Gross from NRO lends a few hardened words of contempt for the main stream media.

Note: I have yet to see anything being reported about the cold blooded machine gunning here in Finland, if any of my Finnish readers have seen it reported by the Finnish press, please let me know.

I have followed YLE, MTV3, Nelonen, Helsingin Sanomat and the Keskisuomalainen during the same time period of the shooting, and there hasn’t been any word of the shooting. I am not surprised by the blackout. It’s what they do. *L* KGS

Did Anyone Say Double Standards? [Tom Gross]

If Israelis machine-gunned protesters at a peaceful demonstration, I think we can safely say that the BBC, New York Times, and others would cover it in a major way.

From Ha’aretz:
Before noon, two civilians were killed during a protest held in Gaza City under the banner “Stop the Killing.” Some 1,000 Palestinians marched in the city, calling for an end to the fighting, but when they approached a Hamas position, militants fired at the protesters, killing two.

  1. Finnish media has a way of condensing news so that details are lost in the process.

    I haven’t followed Middle East news from Finnish media in ages, but I try to look up any references I can find.

  2. Most of the newsmedia publish the news items provided by Finnish News Agency STT. So literally the same pieces of news appear everywhere.

    But the trend is clear. Actions of Israel are reported, but actions of Palestinians are not. This makes it look like that the Palestinians are just passive bystanders in the conflict.

  3. Thanks Vasarahammer, I apprecriate your insight. The Finnish news media is hamstrung with a lot of built in mechanisms that inhibit a freer dissemination of the facts, the whole facts.

    A dear friend had the opportunity of being in the Helsingin Sanomat foreign news room a few years ago, he said that they relied heavily on the BBC (as well as the news wire services) for all of their material, never checking the veracity of the content.

    Copy and paste and then print it…and never look back!
