The Terrorist/Media Convergence

No matter how many times I see this, I can't help but wonder if the press would give coverage as glowing to certain other groups as it collectively does to these terrorist thugs.

After all, the Izzedine al-Qassam Brigades openly espouses violence against civilians—which is something that the "Social Justice"-seekers in the press stand firmly against, isn't it?

Palestinian militants from Izzedine al-Qassam brigades, the Hamas military wing, speak to press during a news conference in Gaza City, Tuesday, Jan. 15, 2008. Israeli troops killed the son of Gaza's most powerful leader and 18 others Tuesday in the bloodiest day of fighting in the coastal area since Hamas militants seized control there last summer. As fighting raged in Gaza, a Hamas sniper shot and killed an Ecuadorian volunteer working in the potato fields of an Israeli border farm. That killing, and Tuesday's high death toll, stoked the flames of violence at a time when Israel and Palestinian moderates are making halting attempts to talk peace. (AP Photo/Adel Hana)

relating to the strike that killed the hamas dudes son; quoted from this article:

"Nineteen Palestinians - including three civilians, according to hospital officials in Gaza - were killed in the ensuing gunbattles and air strikes. One was Hussam Zahar, 24, son of hard-line Hamas leader Mahmoud Zahar, who is viewed as the mastermind behind the violent Hamas takeover of the Gaza Strip in June. Zahar's eldest son, Khaled, was killed in 2003 when an F-16 dropped a bomb on his house in a failed attempt on Zahar's life.

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas condemned what he described as "the Israeli massacre in Gaza." According to the PA leader, Israel carried out barbaric actions that damage the peace process. "[We] cannot remain silent in light of these crimes," he said. "

16 out of 19 killed were terrorists. That means there was NO massacre. Furthermore, it does not specify whether or not the civilians were killed by Israeli's or terrorists; probably caught in the crossfire, and it's a shame (assuming they were civilians, and even then the civilians are often the ones supporting hamas) but hardly a massacre.
