    Egypt accused of poisoning Palestinians

    Source: Morning Star
    Date: April 29, 2010

    Hamas has accused Egypt of pumping poisonous gas into a cross-border tunnel used to smuggle food, medical supplies and other necessities into the blockaded coastal enclave, killing four Palestinians

    Why has the mainstream media not picked this up? Is there any doubt that if Israel had gassed Palestinians this would be all over the headlines?

    Hamas' allegations have zero credibility.

    The tunnel has most likely collapsed.
    It's not the first time it happens and certainly not the worst of them all.

    Why create a thread in the "Breaking News - Mainstream Media" forum questioning why the Mainstream Media has not picked up the story?

    Fortunately, the MM HAS picked up the story:

    My point is that if Israel had gassed Palestinian tunnels this would be headline news. It is not, why?

    I wonder what the domestic and worldwide reaction would be if the USA blew up tunnels leading to/from Mexico and killed 100+ people.

    I agree, Hamas allegations have zero credibility. That also applies to Hamas claims of war crimes by Israel against the Palestinian people and any other claim by the terrorist organization Hamas.

    Absolutely correct.

    Heck, I remember reading a headline in the news during the Haiti earthquake about some dude who was claiming that Israel's rescue team to Haiti was harvesting organs from the quake victims that it has saved.

    It's the already based double standard.

    Haha - so true, so true. Best illustrated by their photoshopped depictions of Israeli attacks with honorable mentions to the screaming old lady they were caught carting around for photo-ops and the Mickey Mouse doll they were caught planting at several sites.
