4/7/10: The HuffPost-PallyWood propaganda machine, unplugged



2009 Pew survey: 68% of Palestinians claim suicide bombings against civilians are "justifiable."


With those survey numbers in mind...

... on the morning of April 7, 2010, this was the splash front page story on "The Internet Newspaper," whose management claims it is a "nonpartisan" source of news that is "not left wing, and not right wing":


Let's take a closer look at that propaganda picture, shall we?

With this image in mind, return with us now to those wistful days of yesteryear...

... when such syrupy shilling was paid for with hard currency --- and the one paying the bill was clearly identified...

Slightly more relevant stories on Palestinians that HuffPost refuses to cover, or glosses over:

Below are pasted some of the stories that HuffPost has willfully ignored from the recent past (as recently as yesterday; see first item), while it continues its daily drip-drip-drip of incendiary libels against Israel --- and its campaign of silence on anything positive regarding Israel and Jews:

(4/6/10): Palestinian PM Fayyad: Next Year We Will Celebrate In Church of Holy Sepulchre in Our Capital Jerusalem (Jerusalem Post, via Gateway Pundit)
Can you imagine what HuffPost would do if Israeli Jews said they were going to celebrate in a Palestinian mosque next year? Yeah. But when it's Palestinian Muslims making the inverse claim about a Christian church... well, there's that old HuffPost double-standard again.

(8/21/08): Palestinian support for jihad terror attacks against Israeli civilians increasing (Jerusalem Post, via JihadWatch)
Robert Spencer: "Remember [these new poll numbers] the next time someone tells you that the Palestinians voted for Hamas because they were tired of the corruption of Fatah, and not because they support the jihad terror agenda that Hamas espouses... [T]he number of Palestinians who support attacks against Israelis continues to rise and more than half of them favor suicide bombings, according to a poll published this weekend..."

4/8/09: One-sided coverage of "Outlandish Statements" from the Middle East
When a member of the Israeli government makes controversial statements, it makes the front page of HuffPost. When Hamas, Fatah, Hezbollah or any other militant Islamist group makes statements that urge and justify the mass murder of Jews, HuffPost either doesn't report them, or at a minimum, only does so with very little fanfare.
Here are some examples; more will be created with the $900 million of U.S. taxpayer dollars that the Obama administration recently sent to the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip:

And yet, none of the above, or similar media, ever shows up on HuffPost --- period. However, when PallyWood propagandists furnish HuffPost with a snappy new "Coke commercial" picture, such as a cuddly new picture of Hamas's terror leader... well, that's a different matter.

3/7/10: HuffPost's total blackout of Israel's heroic relief efforts in Haiti (Huff-Watch)
When Israel is accused of some wrongdoing, as the long list below shows, it's a good bet that HuffPost will not only feature the story prominently, it may well manipulate the headline to make it even more incendiary or misleading. Or, it will generate a headline that accuses Israel or Jews of something, on a false or misleading basis. So what do you think HuffPost did when Israel accomplished something so extraordinarily positive that it earned the admiring coverage of the world media (including those that HuffPost routinely relies upon for Middle East news)? This special report documents the fact that HuffPost completely ignored the story... day after day, week after week --- while at the same time, prominently promoting its standard fare of Israel-bashing, Islamist-sympathizing, and nonsensical "news" stories.

(10/21/09) HuffPost's ongoing blackout of credible rebuttals to the anti-Israel stories it publishes (Huff-Watch)
Since the egregiously-biased Goldstone Report was published, HuffPost has routinely published "news" stories that support it, on its front page. Yet when one source after another produced detailed rebuttals to these libels, HuffPost has chosen either to not publish them --- or, in a few token cases, "buried" them in positions well away from the its readers' immediate focus. This article also documents HuffPost's willingness to put anti-Israel propaganda by Human Rights Watch on its front page --- yet no stories documenting this organization's anti-Semitism and corruption, including even a scathing indictment of it by its founder.

9/24/09: HuffPost's blackout of Netanyahu's blockbuster speech at the U.N.
On September 23, there were two notable speeches at the U.N. Israeli PM Netanyahu gave a passionate, fact-based, point-by-point rebuttal to the most egregious libels to which the State of Israel, its military, and the Jewish people in general, have been subjected in recent years. Libyan dictator and madman Moammar Gaddafi gave a 95-minute rant. Guess which speech HuffPost put near the top of its front page, and asked whether it contained "valid points" --- and which it refused to even acknowledge the existence of? Need you ask?

More to come.

8/1/09: Hamas: "Hello, HuffPost? Yes, we have a new cuddly picture of our chief terrorist for you." (HuffPost: "Thanks!!!")

5/13/09: (Kennedy-esque) Obama "warns" (sinister-looking) Netenyahu; predictable Israel-hatred ensues (with approval!!!)

If you'd like to make your voice known to HuffPost's management on its coverage of Middle East affairs, here's how.
