HP Headline/Photo Bias: Palestinian Camp Bombed

The Huffington Post has once again made editorial decisions that prove its anti-Israel bias for all to see. It covered the news story of a Palestinian refugee camp being bombed but took its biased headlines and bloody shirt waving photos and threw them away. Here is the outside headline for the camp bombing story:

And here is the inside photo:

This photo is captioned "In this Saturday, Dec. 15, 2012 photo, a Free Syrian Army fighter aims his weapon during heavy clashes with government forces at a military academy besieged by the rebels north of Aleppo, Syria. (AP Photo/Narciso Contreras)".

Compare and contrast these two photos to the recent West Bank clashes that resulted in one Palestinian death, not 25 people hiding in a mosque:


Why isn't the number of the dead in the headline? Why did the Huffington Post elect to use pictures of a destroyed car and a generic Syrian soldier to illustrate their article rather than mourning relatives or children picking their way through destroyed buildings? Could it be because these Palestinians were killed because of Syria, not Israel? No, couldn't be!

Even the evil Zionist newspaper the Jerusalem Post had a more sympathetic picture and headline:

When the Jerusalem Post is more sympathetic to the Palestinians than the Huffington Post, something is seriously wrong.
