Palestinian journo: Hamas uses civilians as human shields

And he doesn’t like it. The mainstream media in the West, meanwhile, continues to pretend that Israel is indiscriminately targeting civilians. “PA Newspaper Editor Attacks Hamas’s Use Of Gaza Residents As Human Shields,” from the MEMRI Blog, January 7 (thanks to James):

Hafez Al-Barghouti, editor of the Palestinian Authority daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, has attacked the use of civilians as a human shield by Hamas’s military wing.He also said that the release of videocassettes showing Hamas members digging secret tunnels beneath Gaza residents’ homes permits Israel to excuse their strikes on the homes, and called on Hamas members to keep their distance from populated places, and to protect the lives of the citizens instead of using them.
