HP Bias: Struggling to Worship

The Huffington Post has engaged in some original reporting for once, and as usual the reporting is insanely biased and one sided. Here's the latest example:

Every year Israel lets in thousands of Muslims into Jerusalem to pray from Ramadan, and this year has been no exception. According to Palestinian news agency Ma'an, 75,000 Muslims prayed at the Al-Aqsa Mosque on the first Friday of Ramadan, including any Palestinian woman or Palestinian man over the age of 40. 75,000 people. But does the Huffington Post write an article about that? Or even bother to mention in in the body of the article, much less the headline? Absolutely not! Then the article would be almost news, not blatant anti-Israel propaganda.

But the bias doesn't stop at the headline and photo. There's a gallery of photos describing "Palestinian Struggles to Pray in Jerusalem", which also include as the last one a shot of hundreds of Palestinians praying in Jerusalem. Also, there's this line in the article:
"It is also Al Quds day, an annual anti-Zionist protest against the Israeli occupation of Palestine that has been commemorated with worldwide demonstrations. According to the Islamic Human Rights Commission, this year's theme is "the liberation of Palestine.""
Isn't it hilarious that the Islamic Human Rights Commission is more honest than the Huffington Post? Quds Day is an anti-Zionist event, but it's not against "the Israeli occupation of Palestine," unless you consider all of Israel to be Palestine, which most anti-Zionists do. It's usually the day Iranian leadership say such nice things as "The nations of the region will soon finish off the usurper Zionists in the Palestinian land.... A new Middle East will definitely be formed. With the grace of God and help of the nations, in the new Middle East there will be no trace of the Americans and Zionist." But why mention that inconvenient fact either if you're the Huffington Post?

Lastly, we once again check out the Huffington Post article's "Around the Web" section:

Yup, second from the bottom, a link to Electronic Intifada, a Palestinian propaganda site. Think we'll see any links to AIPAC or Stand With Us on there any time soon? 

The Huffington Post has shown in this latest article that it has fully embraced its role as Palestinian propagandist
