Hamas really are an ungrateful lot. Foreign journalists could not be more cooperative. Already predisposed to seeing Palestine as the victim and Israel as the aggressor the articles on the conflict seem to be always biased in Hamas’s favour. When Hamas store weapons and fire rockets at Israel from inside hospitals, schools, and mosques the press dutifully report that the terrible Israelis attacked hospitals, schools, and mosques which are not legitimate military targets. When Hamas damages with rockets an Israeli power station that supplies power to both Israel and Palestine, the media dutifully report that the terrible Israelis have cut off power to Palestine.
Despite this Palestine friendly coverage, Hamas is restricting the work of foreign journalists in the Gaza Strip.
