Far be it from the press to suggest that there's any controversy surrounding Qana, but it would seem that the Associated Press is absolutely delighted to provide us with pictures of people who hate Israel. Unquestionably, of course:

Norman Finkelstein, center, a vocal American critic of Israel who resigned last year as a political science professor at DePaul University in Chicago, walks inside the grave of Qana victims who were killed in an Israeli attack during the 2006 summer war between Israel and Hezbollah, in the southern village of Qana, Sunday Jan. 6, 2008. Finkelstein met Hezbollah's commander in south Lebanon, Nabil Kaouk, in his office in the coastal city of Tyre also toured the border village of Aita al-Shaab, the location from where Hezbollah guerrillas triggered the war after they crossed the border, killing three Israeli soldiers and capturing two others in hopes of trading them for Lebanese prisoners in Israeli jails, according to the report.

So, what are we to take from stuff like this?!?! The press are biased against Israel. There are people who hate Israel. There are governments who hate Israel. There are press reports that bring all 3 together to hate Israel as one. And sometimes, you can get all 3 in one picture.

First off, I thought it was pretty well proven that while Israel may have bombed the area of Qana, that those people were either pre-killed or were just used as bait for Israel's bombs.

My, how times have changed. During WW1 and WW2, the press would have been all over those who put civilians into harms way and used them as shields. But low, how far they have dropped to where now they gleefully blame those who had no other choice but to defend themselves.

"..walks (*inside*) the grave of Qana victims who were killed in an Israeli attack during the 2006 summer war between Israel and Hezbollah, in the southern village of Qana, Sunday Jan. 6, 2008." Shouldn't that be... alongside, or among, or around.... Also, is there just one grave for all the dead people?

I really should do this regularly If you haven't read Fun O'Malley Factoid at Maryland Conservatarian; you must. For a guy who's supposedly so politically in tune, his choices have been bewildering. At least this time his choice was defensible. If you haven't read Crablaw's Games Club of Maryland; you must. If you haven't read RIP Netscape at the Fireant Gazette; you must. If you haven't seen My Hike through Tel Shiloh at Shiloh Musings; you must. If you haven't read The useful idiocy of Norman Finkelstein at Little Green Footballs; you must. And while you're at it also read,...
