al Reuters up to its old tricks
    #3197332 - 09/29/04 10:01 PM (13 years, 20 days ago)

Reuters omitted some important information from its report on an Israeli missile strike on Gaza. Here is the entire Reuters report http://olympics.reuters.com/newsArticle.jhtml?type=worldNews&storyID=6330743 :

Quote:

GAZA (Reuters) - An Israeli helicopter fired a missile into a Palestinian refugee camp in Gaza early on Saturday, killing an elderly civilian man and wounding at least three people, witnesses and medics said.

They said the missile crashed near a mosque in Khan Younis camp and that Israeli armored forces were gathering on the edge of the large urban camp, a Palestinian militant stronghold, in the southern Gaza Strip.

Khan Younis's hospital director told Reuters that a man of about 60 was killed by the missile and and three people he said were also civilians were wounded by flying shrapnel.

An Israeli army spokesman said the report was being checked and had no further information for the moment.

The reported air strike followed a mortar attack by Palestinian militants on the nearby Jewish settlement of Neve Dekalim Friday that killed a 24-year-old woman.

The Islamist militant group Hamas said it had targeted Neve Dekalim, a day after three Palestinian gunmen killed three soldiers on the fringes of another settlement to the south.




Straightforward reporting, right? The evil Jooooooos offed some civilians for no apparent reason. Sigh. Happens all the time, old chap. Sad, really, but what can one do?

Well, for starters, one might tell the entire story. Even the BBC report http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/3688656.stm , filed at the same time as the Reuters report, got this much right:

Quote:

The Israeli army said its strike targeted Palestinian militants ... The Israeli army said it had targeted a group of militants preparing to fire a rocket into the Jewish settlement.




Ha'aretz http://www.haaretz.com/hasen/spages/481479.html had this to say :

Quote:

The Israel Defense Forces said the air strike was aimed at four men about to launch a rocket or rocket-propelled grenade into a Jewish settlement, and that at least two of those involved in the launch were hit.

It's the anti-semitic liberal media up to it's shenanigans again.

The question is, why does the liberal pigs hate the peace loving jews so much?

In essence, why do they hate America?

The arabs and the jews are both bad. Its a constant attack and retaliation. The jews and arabs will have to decide whether they want peace or not. Violence will only multiply more violence.

..... Reuters:::::

The Israeli army said it had intercepted a group of militants preparing to fire a rocket into the adjacent settlement of Neve Dekalim, where a mortar bomb launched from the same spot on the camp's edge killed the woman settler.

"We identified the terrorist cell from the air and fired at it, scoring a hit on at least two men, although we know there were at least four of them," the spokesman said.

I'd just assume it takes longer for the Reuters reporter to make her Isreali Defence source cum.
