Make with the white flags already.
There really isn't any other way to describe Ibrahim Abu Mustafa's recent series on the Al-Ansar Brigades published on the REUTERS wire than to say that it looks like he thinks he's a terrorist group's official PR agent. The menacing gun (complete with march), the accomplished tunnel rat, the repurposed surplus vehicle, and the traditional extreme limbo contest—All arranged as carefully as can be, to ensure that this previously unknown offshoot of Hamas looks as scary as humanly possible.
Dare I say the fact that he does so as Hamas gets reprimanded by Egypt is quite... convenient?
At least it's good to know that Reuters staff is being as impartial as ever.

Palestinian militant leaders in the Gaza Strip promised on Wednesday to stop firing rockets against Israel after Egypt warned that any further shootings may prompt another war, officials said.
