The above photo is part of a photo essay on the conflict in Gaza. The caption:
A child collects shell casings from near the wreckage of his home in the Tawam section of Gaza City. Residents said that Palestinian militants took up positions in some of the houses, which were bombarded by Israeli forces.This explains why Israeli forces have bombed selected schools and other civilian areas. Al Qaeda and Hamas terrorists both place civilian lives in jeopardy by hiding out in civilian areas. Then, when civilians are killed or injured, they parade the dead and wounded for propaganda purposes. Dion Nissenbaum dutifully reports the stories of the Palestinian dead and wounded -- but never gets around to explaining the role of Hamas.
If there was sanity in Gaza, the populace would not tolerate Hamas putting civilians at risk. And if there was sanity at McClatchy -- the truth about Hamas would be front page news instead of hidden deep inside a photo essay. (Photo: Shashank Bengali/MCT)
