Lebanon Victims Get Israeli Treatment with Latest HP Headline

I'm not sure why, but the Huffington Post gave a recent suicide bombing in Lebanon "Israeli treatment." It's suspected that Hezbollah was the target of the blast, so possibly the Huffington Post supports those fighting Hezbollah and covers the news accordingly. Check out what I mean:

Two people were wounded in the blast, but the Huffington Post (much like when Israelis are injured), didn't put that fact in the headline. Apparently the suicide bomb just exploded and nothing else of note happened. CNN mentioned the wounded, though.

I just thought it was interesting that the Huffington Post will so blatantly skew the coverage when people it likes gets hurt vs. people it doesn't like.
