Busted! Haaretz scrubs story about IDF impersonating Hamas
“By Way Of Deception Thou Shalt Do War.” – the official motto of Mossad
The story of Israeli Defense Force troops impersonating Hamas militants somehow made it onto the Haaretz news wire. Blacklisted News was able to snag a screen capture before Haaretz purged the story from the site. For proof that the story was in fact memory-holed a la “1984″ click here.
What I find most interesting is why Haaretz printed this story in the first place, and then obviously, why it was removed and replaced by this story: “Obama: Gaza war underscores need for immediate Mideast solution.”
You’ll notice that the first sixteen or so comments are in response to the article of the IDF troops posing as Hamas, and then the remaining comments are in response to the Obama article.
Update: Ha’aretz’s information management department has now changed the original link to re-direct to the front page of it’s Hebrew online version. The new link to the article entitled “Obama: Gaza war underscores need for immediate Mideast solution” has no comments listed in the comment section.
