My Mideast Punchlines: we are not amused …..

Israel’s Foreign Ministry has released a 50-second video cartoon mocking the international press coverage of Gaza for its inaccurate reporting. Described by Robert Mackey in the New York Times as a “broadside,” he writes:

The Foreign Press Association in Tel Aviv was not amused by the video. The group said in a statement that it was “surprised and alarmed by the Israeli Foreign Ministry’s decision to produce a cartoon mocking the foreign media’s coverage of last year’s war in Gaza.”

“Posting misleading and poorly conceived videos on YouTube,” the journalists added, “is inappropriate, unhelpful and undermines the ministry, which says it respects the foreign press and its freedom to work in Gaza.”

Small FistI would suggest that the FPA extracts its head out of its backside. The international media’s posting of misleading and poorly conceived reports is what is really inappropriate, unhelpful and undermines the truth. Anyway, there is no foreign press freedom in Gaza. Everyone knows the foreign press relies on local reporters, who just happen to be paid lackeys of Hamas. You couldn’t make it up — but they do.
