HP Bias in Pictures Part 9: Jewish Extremists Banned from WB

The Huffington Post covered the news of Israel temporarily banning some settlers from the WB for extremist activities, or what I'd like to call "a good start". The photo choice to accompany the story, though, was informative as always.

The rollover text, in case you can't read it, says, "An elderly Palestinian man stands next to a torched car Palestinians say was set on fire by Jewish extremists, in a West Bank village, Wednesday, Dec. 14, 2011. (AP)".

Even when Palestinians aren't the subject of the article, and even when there is no proof that this was done by Jews, the HP can't help but post pictures of their suffering. As always, contrast this to their photos for the Itamar massacre and the Jerusalem street bombing.  More blatant bias you cannot find.
