Today's Biased Headline and Picture

The Huffington Post never fails to run out of sympathy for Palestinians, no matter who they are or what they have done. This stands in stark contrast to their complete lack of sympathy for any Israelis. This latest article works very well to prove my point:

The inside headline is even more misleading:

Israel didn't promise to release anybody, and it certainly wasn't because of the hunger strike. These guys were arrested for militancy, released, violated the terms of their release, and were placed in administrative detention. Then they started hunger striking, served their terms, and the chief prosecutor decided not to push for an extension of those terms.

Regardless, it's amazing how the Huffington Post is more interested in drumming up sympathy for militants and criminals than they are for the innocent people that they murder.
