Where's the Coverage? Hamas Video Promotes Destruction of Israel, Murder of Jews


In “honor�? of Israel’s Independence Day, the terrorist group Hamas, which is in the process of forming a unity government with the so-called moderate Fatah-run Palestinian Authority (PA), released a video parodying Israel’s national anthem, Hatikvah. But the Hamas version is a bit different:

The Zionist army was built of wax
And now it has melted and has no hope.
The bastard Jews that were once here,
Somebody tell what is left of them.
Two parts: the first will be deported
To their country of origin, if they choose that.
Whereas the stupid ones who persist in staying
Their fate is sealed underneath the dust.
The name of the holy city will revert to what it was,
Our capital – Bayt al-Maqdis – not Jerusalem.

Note Hamas hopes Jerusalem will be known as Bayt al-Maqdis. This is ironic as the Arabic “Bayt al-Maqdis�? derives from the Hebrew “Beit ha-Mikdash,�? referring to the ancient Jewish Temple which preceded the founding of Islam by centuries. This, even as Palestinian leaders frequently deny the Jewish connection to Israel or that there ever was a Temple on the Temple Mount. Oops.

But that is a side show.

Much more important is the fact that the video’s imagery is chilling, featuring computer animation of Jews being loaded onto transport ships with the bodies of Jews and IDF soldiers littering the ground. This video clearly advocates the destruction of Israel, as well as the murder and ethnic cleansing of Jews.

Yet, none of the mainstream media covered this video. Only some blogs, Jewish and Israeli press found it newsworthy.

Now, it’s not as if The New York Times didn’t know it was Israel’s Independence Day, the paper even celebrated the holiday in its cafeteria.

Yes, the Grey Lady felt diners should know that Israel’s food is delicious but did not see fit to let readers know that Israel’s enemies are genocidal. Apparently Times executives are more concerned with Hummus than Hamas.

In its coverage of the Hamas deal, The Times called Fatah “moderate.�? So did many other news outlets.

Is joining with a terrorist group that advocates murder of civilians, ethnic cleansing and the destruction of a U.N.-member state moderate? No. Is painting a full and accurate picture of Israel’s enemies the responsibility of the news media? You bet. So… Where’s the coverage?

A thank you for ALL the work you've been doing over the years. This is but another PRIME example why CAMERA is such a necessity.

Why this isn't reported is that the "media" thinks it's all talk, or too inconvenient a truth.

Bin Laden declared war on the U.S.; and we had the same response, right up to the minute the second plane hit the tower. By then, it was too late.

Keep it up! Happy Yom Ha` Atzmaut.
