Last week as you may remember the Mufti of Jerusalem called for the killing of Jews. More specifically he quoted the hadith about Jews hiding behind rocks and trees. Do you remember that from the Hamas Charter? Anyway he is now under investigation by the Israeli police.
The Huffington Post, of course, stayed as far away from the story as possible. But not even they could stop Ed Koch from writing a blog post about it. Here is a brief selection:
"Imagine what the outcry worldwide would have been had either of the two chief rabbis of Israel made a comparable call to kill Muslims. You know and I know there would have been U.N. Assembly and Security Council Resolutions denouncing Israel, not only calling for the removal of the chief rabbi, but sanctions against the state itself."Now this puts the Huffington Post editors in a tough position. You see, they don't want this news to be getting out. So what should they do?
Well, for starters, they put the story in the New York section. Even though the story has nothing at all to do with New York except that Ed Koch wrote it. Then they proceeded to keep it out of the World and Religion sections, and put it only in "Hamas" and "Israel," sections which are not read by most users. (I guess they needed room for MJ Rosenberg's latest) Go and take a look at the article keywords if you do not believe me.
This now leaves one to wonder: What other important news stories has the Huffington Post buried so deep that no one will see it?
