Both common sense and experience should tell journalists not to trust Hamas, a genocidal U.S.-designated terrorist group that uses human shields. Both journalists and policymakers, including the U.S. Secretary of State, have warned not to do so. But the Washington Post is advocating for trusting the terror organization.
Historians will have to treat the Post's first- and second-day coverage of Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's Jan. 4 stroke skeptically. Glenn Kessler's analysis repeatedly misrepresents U.S.-Israeli and Israeli-Palestinian diplomacy. The Post's editorial commenting on Sharon's incapacitation is superficial and mistaken. Scott Wilson's news articles misleads on fundamentals of the Arab-Israeli conflict.
