The role of a shill is to conceal any nefarious intent by the huckster, to protect the sheen of the product.
The PA and its leaders have a long and tragic history of rejecting peace and proliferating terror, irrespective of who sits in the White House. And the press, responsible in large measure for crafting the first draft of history, would do well to record it.
Palestinian rulers oppressing and brutalizing their own people seldom make the front page. The reason is simple: The media is often uninterested in reporting on Palestinian affairs unless Israel can be blamed.
When Christian peacemakers come into the presence of Palestinians who say hateful things against Israel and promote acts of violence against its citizens, some of these folks get really excited in an unwholesome sort of way. It’s creepy.
The Washington Post minimizes—and often fails to report—Palestinian anti-Jewish violence. The paper has increasingly underplayed threats facing the Jewish state.

Journalists keep treating Hamas claims with undue credibility—missing the terror group’s motives and history.
