Finally the media gets the recognition it deserves. (via Elder of Ziyon)

Gaza’s Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh praised the media and journalists as “partners in the victory” against Israel.

During a ceremony to honor “martyrs of the media,” which was organized by the Hamas-controlled Ministry of Information, Hanieyahsaid that the media “contributed to the steadfastness of the Palestinian people.”

He said, “The Palestinian people has triumphed over the Israeli aggression on all levels, including militarily, politically and morally and in the media.”

Haniyeh said that “the men of the Palestinian media have formed the source from which the world’s media derived all that was going on in Gaza…”

Haniyeh is referring to Hamas media outlets such as Al Aqsa TV, which mainstream media outlets sometimes describe as journalists, and praises them for influencing Western mainstream media.

    Ah, PalllyWood! “Quiet on the set! Action! Roll ‘em! Come on, kid! You gotta look pathetic! Look afraid! Your “dad” just got zonked by a Jew rocket! While he was in the bathtub! You, you wizened old biddy, let’s see those tears! Cry like your lottery ticket was off by one digit, and you won’t get a zillion bucks! Wail like a banshee! Or a Jin! Squeeze the kid’s hand until it hurts! Look miserable, homeless! Okay, let’s see you wander over there and climb over those concrete slabs and stones!”
    Of course, this is the making of the sequel, “Western Media Are Easy XXXIX,” starring Jeff Goldblum. Well, not that Jew, but an actor who looks like him.

      I loved the video of the Palestinian funeral a few years ago when one of the clowns carrying the stretcher with a “dead” Pally stumbled and the body rolled off the stretcher and landed on the ground. The Chinese fire drill as the “dead” guy jumped up and got back on the stretcher was hilarious.

        that did not stop the western media to still support Hamas and celebrate their victory over Israel. The word idiot is just not sufficient.
