Jay Tea at WizBang is angry over the Ass. Press's flippant reporting of the acts of two Palestinian terrorists.

You see, these two young men are freedom fighters, struggling to "strike a blow" for their people against the brutal oppressor.

The AP doesn't go into much detail as to just what sort of blow they intended to strike, describing it first as "a target." Later, it's called "an Israeli vehicle." At the end, they say that the two young men killed "two Israelis" and wounded "four others."

The real target, that the Ass. Press fails to mention is revealed by Meryl Yourish...who found the story at the Jerusalem Post.

The army closed the Gush Katif junction to Palestinian traffic hours after the Kols were murdered and five Israelis wounded by two Palestinian gunmen who opened fire at Israeli cars traveling on the Kissufim road, the main access to Gush Katif.

Dov, 58, and Rahel, 53, had spent Shabbat with her sister in Ganei Tal, and were returning to Jerusalem.

Thousands attended their funeral at Jerusalem's Har Menuhot cemetery on Sunday night. The couple are survived by their three children, Yehonathan, 15, Tamar, 17 and Hila, 24....

Aside from the Kols, five civilians were wounded, one moderately and the rest lightly. Three required hospital treatment, and were taken to Beersheba's Soroka Hospital, while others were treated at the site by medics.

Among the wounded were Tsuri and Efrat Mor of Mitzpe Jericho, and Shaked, who refused to leave the area.

The terrorists are news, the innocent people they murder are just peripheral. Even then the AP won't call them terrorists.

Well, they certainly are working hard to maintain their infamy as the Ass. Press, aren't they.
