The Huffington Post covered this sad story yesterday, but as usual the truth is not sad enough for them:
Naturally the Huffington Posters were quick to call it a whitewash, but they would say that if Israel did anything less than execute everyone from Benjamin Netanyahu all the way down. I'm not sure what to think about the story myself. Israeli soldiers would have nothing to gain and everything to lose from intentionally killing more than twenty Palestinian civilians, so there is no motive there. In situations like this I go back to my usual standard of judging others: what would my country do or has done in similar situations? I know that America does stuff like this all the time so it would be pretty hypocritical of me to demand more from Israel.
That being said, take a look at that picture again. We get our crying Palestinians in a funeral just like always. Of course, the caption says that "according to Palestinian sources" the people in the picture were killed by Israel, which means nothing.
And as we all well know, the number of Huffington Post articles showing Israeli victims of violence or Israeli funerals continue to stand at exactly zero. The bias remains as transparent as ever.
