The New York Times ran a story today entitled, “Four Militants Killed Near Gaza Coast by Israeli Navy”. The story itself reveals that the men were divers from the al Aksa Martyrs Brigades trying to penetrate the blockade. But what picture does the Times run with it? This one:
Those poor poor terrorists! They’re so misunderstood! Can you imagine the reaction if that kind of picture were run with a story about the U.S. Military killing terrorists? I can guarantee you the picture would be of some stoic-looking marines, not the grieving families of the slain terrorists. Why the double standard? Why is it good when we kill terrorists but bad when Israel does it?
