Media outlet ADMITS most 'peaceful' Gaza protesters were terrorists — but there's a PATHETIC catch

It’s genuinely refreshing to see a mainstream media outlet call the “peaceful protesters” in Gaza what they are: terrorists. Too bad they couldn’t quite bring themselves to do it more forcefully than this:

“Opinion”?

At this point, there’s no disputing the fact that Hamas has sent terrorists to the Israel-Gaza border and used women and children as human shields. For crying out loud, Hamas is out there bragging about it. This isn’t a matter of opinion. Not even a little bit.

Daniella Greenbaum writes:

A few weeks ago, as the “protests” were first ramping up, I wrote a primer on Hamas’s history of violence for readers unfamiliar with the terrorist entity. One part in particular is worth rereading:

“Fathi Hammad, a Hamas official, once said explaining his organization’s tactics: ‘For the Palestinian people, death has become an industry, at which women excel, and so do all the people living on this land. … The elderly excel at this, and so do the mujahideen and the children.’

“He went on to explain that ‘this is why they have formed human shields of the women, the children, the elderly … in order to challenge the Zionist bombing machine.’ It is, Hammad said, like ‘they were saying to the Zionist enemy: ‘We desire death like you desire life.'”

This is the kind of context that should be present in discussions the violence in Gaza, or about Hamas’s participation in the conflict. So far, it largely hasn’t been. That omission, along with the absence of meaningful coverage about the victims, is indicative of the way the mainstream media extinguishes fruitful exchange about the realities of the conflict.

And in pushing Greenbaum’s article as an “opinion” piece, Business Insider is helping to bury “the realities of the conflict.”
