Anything Israel related, no matter how irrelevant, becomes huge news on the Huffington Post because they know they have a hate brigade waiting in the wings to descend at the slightest provocation. Naturally they've milked as much as they can out of Israel's "prisoner X" story, about a former Mossad agent who betrayed his country then hung himself. They managed to get one last bit of blood from the stone with a story that Israel paid compensation to his family. Naturally the haters charged in with off topic whining, insults and lies, conspiracy theories and of course moaning about "my tax dollars."
And the grand finale:
As always, Huffington Post approved.
