LA Times: Terrorists Conspired With Those Hamas 'Militants'

LAT logo.jpg

Major media outlets all too often mislabel Hamas as "a militant organization," despite the fact that the United States, the European Union and Israel, among others, have all designated it as a terrorist organization, given its countless suicide bombings, rocket attacks, and shootings of Israeli civilians.

A case this week in The Los Angeles Times is particularly striking. On Sunday, a news brief reported:

Egypt's chief prosecutor charged 200 people with carrying out more than 50 terrorist attacks, killing 40 policemen and 15 civilians and conspiring with the Palestinian militant group Hamas.

The defendants, 98 of whom have not been apprehended, are suspected members of Ansar Bayt Maqdis, or Partisans of Jerusalem, which has claimed responsibility for the bloodiest attacks since a wave of violence picked up after the military overthrow of President Mohamed Morsi last summer.

The prosecutor's statement refers to the group as "the most dangerous terrorist group."

So, while the Egyptians are charged with "terrorist attacks" for, in part, conspiring with Hamas, The Times still whitewashes Hamas as a "militant organization."
