Hamas's Misinformation Spree

Barry Rubin, the Director of the Global Research in International Affairs Center (GLORIA), criticizes the New York Times' and Washington Post's decision to publish Op-Eds by Hamas leader Ahmad Yousef, arguing that

Since these articles are completely disinformation, they do not reflect Hamas’s doctrines, policy, or strategy. As a result, they are worthless for anything other than mobilizing support for the group and disguising its nature. This is not the purpose of op-ed articles.

For more on the Hamas misinformation spree, see the rest of Rubin's article here, and CAMERA's comments on Hamas's Op-Ed in the LA Times here.

It is myopic not to see the evil of the Hamas organization. If they would attack your country you would do everything possible to protect yourselves. If Hamas attacks Israel's you only have gentle comments for Hamas? That is a judeophobic, bigoted slant.
