Example of a Post: Turkish Hypocrisy

What is it about Israel that makes HPers willing to abandon logic and reason in their pursuit of bashing it? Let me give you an example. I'm sure we all remember the flotilla raid from last summer, in which a group of activists attempted to run an Israeli blockade and then attacked the soldiers coming to stop them. Israel investigated and published its results in something called the Turkel report. The HP covered the news, and the HPers responded accordingly:


Indeed, a country who has a self interest in the report coming out a certain way shouldn't necessarily be trusted to create a fair, impartial report. But then, what happens when the shoe is on the other foot?


So when Turkey releases their report, which places blame on Israel, that report is fair and accurate. But the first post's logic could easily be applied to Turkey, Turkey finds Turks' actions legal. Just another example of the kind of hypocrisy common on the Huffington Post.

  1. Why, the anti-Zios accept Turkey's report because it condemns Israel! If it had been the other way around, you can be sure they would have ignored it.

  2. The answer is antisemitism pure and simple: it´s a visceral emotion and those people just can´t hide it, using each and every occasion to lash out their simmering hatred.

  3. In all the articles on HuffPo talking about Turkey's condemnation of Israel in regard to the MM, wonder why they have never posted this one, originally posted in ILK KURSUN

  4. They are hypocrites, I remember when people around the world were making out Turkey was something to be "Admired" for "Standing up to Israel"

    Yet the world ignored the fact they have illegally occupied North Cyprus since 1974 and that they oppress Kurds, Cobra gunships attack Kurdish civilians, a Nation that still denies the Armenian Genocide and has laws on "Insulting Turkishness"

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.
