New on the HP: Rocket Attack from Gaza

To the Huffington Post's credit, it actually covered the rocket fired from Gaza today, which shattered the cease fire that has been in place for the last three months. But it naturally used a biased picture for the outside headline, and no picture at all for the inside:

Who knows, and who cares? Who fired it? We've got Gazans like the innocent child (who loves rockets) above, to weep for.

Suddenly all the concern for "international law" and "human rights" goes right out the window.
