CotDs: Hate for Israel Pervasive on the HP

Everyone's favorite HP blogger Karin Kloosterman has written one of her standard articles about how Israeli technology is transforming the Negev desert. Typical environmental article, I recommend you check it out.

There were very few comments on the thread, but those that were posted were about, well, you guessed it:

So here's the rule for the HP: Any article about the Palestinians, you're not allowed to talk about Israeli achievements or success (that's ____washing). Any article about Israeli successes or achievements, you are allowed to talk about the poor suffering Palestinians (tm), because double standards are OK when you are talking about Jews Zionists Israel.
