Crickets at Electronic Intifada Over UN Finding Hamas Responsible for BBC Reporter's Baby Death
Electronic Intifada, the anti-Israel web site run by activist Ali Abuminah, was extremely agitated over what it saw as the failure of the BBC to vociferously condemn Israel for the murder of the 11 month old infant son of BBC journalist Omar Misharawi. In an article titled, When BBC ignores Israeli murder of its own cameraman’s baby, what hope for other Palestinians?
Electronic intifada was shocked by the BBC's behavior:
One cannot possibly imagine the BBC underplaying the death of family of its own staff in a similar way if they had been killed by, say, Palestinian rocket fire.
Asa Winstanley, the web site's associate editor, expressed outrage that the BBC exhibited some caution about blaming Israel outright, commenting:
Israel only "accused" of killing 11-month-old son of BBC cameraman Jihad Misharawi by "what his father says was an Israeli shell."
Now that the UN investigation has concluded that it was a Hamas fired rocket that most likely killed the child, Electronic Intifada has been notably silent.

Ali Abunimah is a known liar.
He posted this last year.
Now Twitter helps fuel hateful Arab incitement Friday night, I discovered that on his Electronic Intifada blog, Ali Abunimah had put up a post claiming that Likud leaders were planning to go to Al-Aqsa early Sunday morning and that they were calling for “cleansing” Jerusalem and building a Jewish temple instead of the mosque. At the bottom of the post, Abunimah added an update that half-heartedly acknowledged that there was no basis to the story.
Abunimah realizes that his 1 state solution propaganda to eliminate Israel isn't working, so now he's calling for a 3rd intifada.
Anyone who thinks they can make peace with these hate minded Arabs needs to get their head examined.
