Ahmed Shihab-Eldin: My Job is to "Humanize" Palestinians

Found by Huff-Watcher, this is a video of HuffPostLive Editor Ahmed Shihab-Eldin explaining his role on the Hufffington Post, and it is not as an unbiased journalist. Try not to be deterred by the parentheticals:


  1. Wow Wow Wow…

    Ahmed Shihab-Eldin, MJ Rosenberg, James Zogby, Robert Naiman.

    All separated at birth.

  2. And don't forget, American tax dollars are being used to enable all this: Cadillac (which US taxpayers own a quarter of) is one of the official co-sponsors of HuffPostLive, the platform atop which Shihab-Eldin gets to spew his vitriol and act as a PR tool for Hamas and Iran:

  3. :Ahmed Shihab-Eldin: My Job is to "Humanize" Palestinians"…..While DE-humanizing Israelis and Jews" is how it should read.

    Ahmed subscribes to the theory of attempting to make one look good simply by virtue of making another look bad. Regardless of truth.

    Arianna should be not only ashamed, but held accountable for this travesty. The bias, racism and bigotry of the Huffington Post should be covered in every single news outlet around the world for the frauds that they are. They are not a "news outlet", they are a hate site, with a pro-Arab, pro-Muslim, pro-terrorism; anti-American, anti-Israel, anti-Jewish website that is made obvious through their employees such as Shihab-Eldin.

  4. Are you kidding me? Where was the hatred in this video? Yes, Ahmed does often criticize Israel for its handling of the Palestinian situation. As a Jew, I often criticize Israel, too. Does that make me filled with hate?

    I do HATE violence against Israel and I do HATE violence against Palestinians. If that makes me a hate monger, then I'll wear that moniker proudly.

    There's a difference between disagreement and hate. If you consider anything positive about the Palestinians a sign of hatred towards Israelis, then you're ready to commit Middle East to eternal war and suffering -- and eternal HATRED.

  5. Think you missed the point. He is an editor. The question is whether he wants to be objective and can be trusted to paint an accurate picture, even if it makes Palestinians look bad. Or if he will make it his job to "humanize" them?
