The media, in all of its glory, wholeheartedly participating in the celebration of a new weapon designed to kill Jews:
More details will follow shortly, as soon as I have the time. I hope to track down the news articles attached to this event, photographs from other wires that might have attended, etc. In the meantime, the only other photo I've found on the wires so far from this "celebration" follows in the extended article.Update:
Reuters is beginning to weigh in on this event, sending in a photo bylined Abed Omar Qusini. It's interesting to note that Reuters' version of this story is significantly different than the story presented by the AP.
Reuters is beginning to weigh in on this event. Their version of events sounds somewhat different than the AP's version, with the group
, rather than the rocket
being given the euphemistic title, and completely ignoring the new and improved
Jew-killing weaponry. Could this be Abed trying to spin events? Did Reuters misunderstand
what is going on there? Or is the Associated Press wrong?
Somebody has some 'splaining to do.
For those of you who might be new to Snapped Shot, this is not
the first time
that the press has coddled up to terrorist "press conferences." Just close your eyes for a second and see if you can picture the media showing up to a press conference organized by the Klu Klux Klan
, and reporting on the Klan as glowingly as they do these
murderous scum. After seeing photos like these, that picture really isn't
all that hard for me
to picture any longer. How about you?
The blind one-sidedness of the press continues to amaze me.Update:
The AFP has weighed in on this story. It appears to me that the truth, as usual, lies somewhere in the middle: The most likely explanation I'm able to come up with for this is that the group is
called "Jondallah," and the weapons are too
. The only reason this still seems odd to me is that there really isn't any need to come up with another offshoot of al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade
, as that group has not, to my knowledge, ever
agreed to any
cease-fire with the Israeli state.
Details, details. Too bad there aren't any actual investigative
reporters in the middle east, but instead are only an endless fleet of gullible
sycophants, who serve only to remind us that the press as a whole is a mere shadow
of what it once was.
