More News the HP Doesn't Cover: Hamas Won't Recognize Israel

The Huffington Post is dedicated to its mission of depicting Hamas as reasonable and tolerant, while making Israel out to evil and rogue. Is it any wonder, then, that they missed this story?
"During the rally, Palestinian Prime Minister in Gaza Ismail Haniyeh addressed the crowds and declared: "We will not recognize Israel."
Haniyeh urged the Palestinian Authority to put an end to all negotiations and security cooperation with the Jewish state. He added the group would accept "a Palestinian state with full sovereignty in the 1967 borders, with Jerusalem as its capital.""
Typical Palestinian rhetoric. Demanding a state for themselves, but refusing to accept the possibility of a state for the Jews. Note also that they demand all of Jerusalem for Palestine's capital, not simply east Jerusalem as some HPers claim. Contrast this story with one that the Huffington Post did cover, but in which Hamas said that they would be open for peace. It seems that when Hamas says something that makes themselves appear moderate, the Huffington Post will pass it along. When Hamas says something that undermines that image, the Huffington Post is no longer interested.

  1. What the Arabs say in Arabic is of no interest to the Western media. They prefer to parrot their moderate sounding lies in English that are just as quickly retracted before a domestic audience.

    That's not responsible journalism and the Western media has yet to catch on to the truth about the Middle East: its a pretty extreme place.

  2. Hamas occasionally needs to remind the world that they are a terrorists group disguised as an illegitimate governing body.

Hey guys we've started to employ a slight comment policy. We used to have completely open comments but then people abused it. So our comment policy is such: No obvious trolling or spamming. And be warned: unlike the Huffington Post we actually enforce our comment policy.
