26 Palestinian Arab convicts were freed by Israel last night, and are now on Day One of their conversion into giants of the Palestinian Arab blood-lust. That’s not what most parts of the mainstream global media are calling them, but it’s the truth.
Over at Aljazeera.com this morning, in a report headlined “Jubilant crowds welcome Palestinian prisoners“, they say, typically of the genre:
Jubilant celebrations kicked off on Wednesday morning in the occupied West Bank and the Gaza Strip, where the prisoners are seen as heroes who fought for independence, and were received by their families and Palestinian leaders. “We greet and welcome our brothers, and we confirm that they will return to their homes and nowhere else,” Mahmoud Abbas, the president of the Palestinian Authority, said in a speech to a roaring crowd in the West Bank city of Ramallah. “Today we talk about the 104 prisoners, and our journey will not be completed until all the rest of the prisoners are released,” he said. “There will be no agreement while there is still a prisoner who remains behind bars.” [Aljazeera.com]
