Gaza Docs Claims- Almost Libelous

Stories like this are just infuriating. I have a hard time believing that the docs and people involved really believe any of this. But they know that the media will cover these stories even if there is no proof.

I added the emphasis in bold.

While a report from the Hamas-run Ministry of Health said the injuries raised the possibility Israel could be using “unprecedented” projectiles with “radiant” substances, the medics acknowledge that there is no proof so far of their claims. They also admit that the difficulty of establishing the exact cause of death is greatly exacerbated by the reluctance of most bereaved Palestinian families to allow autopsies.”

Am I the only one who is troubled by this. Am I the only person to question the media’s lack of accountability here and their abdication of their responsibility to try and provide proof of allegations prior to airing them.

This is just shameful.

    Their homosexuality. Hmm, I hadn’t heard that one.

    I’ve also read reports in “credible” press that we’re poisoning the water, radiating them via the checkpoints, and that we began their drug culture and (my personal favourite) their homosexuality.
