When You Lie Down with Dogs, You Wake Up with Fleas

Reuters is at it again. And their deception, as usual, is at an all time high. Yesterday, they lost a cameraman in Gaza to an Israeli attack on Hamas. So naturally, those awful Israelis are completely to blame:

Israeli shell killed Reuters cameraman: Gaza doctors 


A medical examination showed on Thursday that metal darts from an Israeli tank shell that explodes in the air caused the death of a Reuters cameraman killed a day earlier in the Gaza Strip, doctors said.X-rays displayed by physicians who examined the body of Fadel Shana in Gaza’s Shifa hospital showed several of the controversial weapons, known as flechettes, embedded in the 23-year-old Palestinian’s chest and legs.

Shana was covering events in the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip for Reuters on a day of intense violence when 16 other Palestinians and three Israeli soldiers were also killed.

“The markings on Fadel Shana’s vehicle showed clearly and unambiguously that he was a professional journalist doing his duty. We and the military must work together urgently to understand why this tragedy took place and how similar incidents can be avoided in the future,” Schlesinger added.



Uh wait just doggone Arafat minute. Did someone say the cameraman was Palestinian? He is a Palestinian, ostensibly working for Reuters, and he’s HANGING OUT WITH Hamas?

Several hundred people, mainly local journalists, marched in Shana’s funeral procession on Thursday. His body was draped in a Palestinian flag and his shattered camera and flak jacket were borne aloft on a separate stretcher. 


I’m sure he and his fellow ‘journalists’ were reporting for Reuters OBJECTIVELY. Ignored in all of this- of course– is the fact that Mr. Shana was traveling with Hamas….and Israel was responding to an earlier premeditated AMBUSH by Hamas. An attack that killed 3 Israeli soldiers!

Whatdya expect Einstein? You’re a Palestinian traveling with Hamas. They’ve just ambushed and killed 3 Israelis. So, UNDERSTANDABLY, Israel responds with force. Any culpability on your part? Yes.
