AP/HP Apply Healthy Skepticism for Israel, Again

Once again, the Huffington Post and Associated Press report news from Israel, but give it plenty of healthy skepticism. After all, the Huffington Post has the highest journalistic standards and would never report anything that wasn't completely true. This time, it's about an Al Qaeda plot foiled in Israel:

Yes, we can't trust what those Israelis say. Everything that comes out of there is "reportedly" or "allegedly." But as I pointed out before, when Hamas or some other Gazan source reports something, there's no doubt in the HP headline.

Double standard? Nah. I'm sure I'm just being paranoid.
