AFP Reports False Accusation, Conceals True Facts

Agence France Presse is dutifully reporting on the Arab League's charge that Israel is engaged in a "massacre."

"The Arab League on Saturday condemned Israeli air strikes on Gaza that killed 15 Palestinians, calling it a "massacre" and urging an international tough stance against the Jewish state."

Would you think the AFP reporter or editor would consider it relevant to the story that most, or perhaps all, of the Palestinians killed were members of terrorist groups, and some were in the process of firing rockets into Israeli towns?

Think again. The AFP report, as retrieved on 3pm on Saturday, only points out that one of the dead was a fighter.

The Arabs think Israelis defending themselves is a massacre.
