What? Terrorists Lie?

If they are willing to fire missiles randomly at innocent people, why would anyone expect the murderous thugs of Hamas to be scrupulously honest? Having figured out that victimhood is the measure of righteousness in the eyes of Western liberals, the terrorist regime in Gaza is busy exploiting this propaganda angle with the assistance of useful idiots in the media, as Melanie Phillips reports:

Last Friday, a number of papers along with outlets such as CNN in the US published prominent footage of the Egyptian Prime Minister Hisham Kanil weeping over the body cradled in his arms of a dead child, Mahmoud Sadallah, who Hamas claimed had been killed in an Israeli air strike. Blogger Elder of Zyon smelled a rat and, piecing together convincing circumstantial evidence, had concluded by this morning that the child was almost certainly not killed by an Israeli strike – not least because on Friday morning when the child died the Israelis had paused their bombing missions to allow for cease-fire talks in Gaza to proceed — but by a Hamas missile that was fired at Israel but had fallen short in Gaza. Now experts from the Palestinian Centre for Human Rights who visited the site on Saturday have said they believe that the explosion that killed Mahmoud Sadallah was indeed caused by a Palestinian rocket.

Via Memeorandum. And as Tom Blumer at Newsbusters points out, CNN’s Sarah Sidner proclaimed this dead girl “a symbol of civilian casualties . . . another victim of an airstrike.”

Sidner’s report was missing exactly one word: “NOT.”

    Of course terrorists lie.

    The economic terrorism being conducted by Obama against the citizens of his own country was preceded by tons of lies before Nov. 6 and he continues to lie. It’s the one thing you can always count on from him.
