How AP’s Arab journalists lie to the world

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip — Hamas militants called Sunday for a fresh wave of attacks against Israel after troops killed nine Palestinians in weekend fighting, straining a five-month-old cease-fire.

In response to the bloodshed, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas’ more moderate Fatah movement urged him to consider breaking off contacts with the Israeli government, despite his pledge to the United States to hold regular meetings with Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert. Hamas and Fatah are partners in a coalition government.

1. The so-called “five-month-old cease-fire” between Palestinians and Israelis never existed because Palestinians have been lobbing rockets into Israel almost on a daily basis.

2. You can’t blame Israel for “breaking a cease-fire” that never existed because Palestinians never adhered to it to begin with.

3. Fatah is not a “moderate movement”. It is no less a terrorist ogranization than Hamas is. An implication that Fatah is “more moderate” than Hamas is just a plain lie. And by saying that Fatah is “more moderate” than Hamas, AP’s Arab journalists make you think that Hamas is moderate but not as moderate as Fatah.
