Absolutely Incredible 'Revised' AP Headline: Hamas Mouse Preaches 'Resistance'Topics: Follies of the Mainstream Media
As we wrote in our previous post on the original AP story: "In yet another clear sign that Palestinian society is not now and never will be, ready for nationhood - at least for the next few generations, Itamar Marcus and Barbara Crook at Palestinian Media Watch report that Hamas Television is using a clone of Disney's Mickey Mouse to teach children to hate Israel and America, and aspire to Islam's inevitable and impending world domination.
The title of the AP story we referred to was, "Hamas 'Mickey Mouse' wants Islam takeover." But that was before the AP changed it's title.
Let's just say that if you ever had any delusions in the past that the AP was not an apologist for radical Islam, you can now rid yourself of such ridiculous naiveté (hat tip - Little Green Footballs).
Again, in the AP's original "honest" edition, the headline read: Hamas 'Mickey Mouse' wants Islam takeover.
In the AP's latest edition, the story has a very different message: Hamas 'Mickey Mouse' preaches resistance.
As Palestinian Media Watch's Itamar Marcus explained to Fox News, "resist" is a Palestinian euphemism for terror, and apparently the AP's DIAA HADID wanted didn't like exposing the Palestinian terror group Hamas as the Palestinian terrorist supporter that they in fact are. Not meaning to be tacky or politically incorrect, with a name like Diaa Hadid it's more likely that the AP's reporter is at least a supporter of Islam than, say, an Irish Catholic.
