And the cover-up begins

Wow, that was quick. Hrothgar of Undernet's #politics chat channel noticed it and referred me to it, I had to see it to believe it.
Remember "Islamic Relief Worldwide" about which I wrote here only last week, and whom I caught creating imaginary orphans (or listing the world's first 13 years long pregnancy, take your pick)? Well, the orphans in question have been erased from their website. Smells like a cover-up to me, and thank god I kept the screencaps.



Now would you look at that? 6 orphans turned into 1, and the made up orphan gone. They are miracle workers indeed.

Also, and I know this came as a bit late work of cover up. Remember the Nazi imagery at It was mysteriously removed from the site.



And would you look at those Waffen-SS lightnings just disappearing away from the image? And if you're asking yourself whether an apology was published or any mention of the incident remains in the page, you're sadly mistaken. They think that if they change the images it'll all go away. Think again.

Define "moderate".

All the news are filled with stories about the "moderate" Fateh's new security force. For the people who haven't kept up with the news let me explain.

The Hamas, a murderous terror gang which won the Palestinian elections is in control of the government and the parliament. The Fateh, a murderous terrorist gang which lost the Palestinian election, controls the presidency. Anyhow, a few weeks ago, the Hamas murderous terrorist gang has established a giant armed military force in Gaza, the Fateh murderous terrorist gang responded by establishing a giant armed military force in Jenin. Now since Fateh are classified as "moderate" by most Reuters stories, their choice of a salute for the new force seems somehow odd. I mean a new force needs a new salute, but I think I saw this kind of saluting elsewhere.

The new "moderate" Palestinian force salutes.

And if you're thinking the AP acknowledged that Nazi salute in their description of the photo, you're wrong, they described it as follows:
Members of a newly deployed Fatah militia salute as they parade in the West Bank town of Jenin Saturday June 3, 2006. The Fatah movement of moderate Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas deployed the new militia, in a show of force against the militantly anti-Israel Hamas government.
If neo-Nazis are moderate for AP, I wonder what militants look like.
Such lovely people! Why would anyone want to build a fence to separate away from them?
