Unbiased? Four of HuffPo's five most extreme statements on Gaza war are Israelis

They call this unbiased news? HuffPo has done a spread on the 'five most extreme statements' on the Gaza war. The first four all come from Israelis.
It seems that everyone these days has an opinion on the conflict between Israel and Hamas - and inflammatory rhetoric is becoming rife.
Twitter has allowed for real-time updates from both sides, desperate to get their version of events out to the wider world as soon as possible.
Added to the mix are a number of political and religious figures who have waded in with bizarre and offensive statements; statements whose sole purpose seems to be to incite even more anger, hatred and violence.
The only statement from Hamas that HuffPo found offensive was one from the al-Qassam Brigades website that "Occupation opened hell gates on itself."

Among those it left out were Hamas threats to resume suicide bombings against Israeli cafes and bus terminals,  Hamas' 'justification for murdering a suspected 'collaborator' in front of kids on a Gaza street, and Hamas' tweets of images of dead kids that it killed, or who were killed in Syria. 

But hey - who ever said HuffPo was supposed to be unbiased?

Yes of course. There's at least two full time websites that do nothing but archive HP's antisemitism; HP Monitor, and Huff Watch. In any case, what I've been saying for a long time is that while that work is useful and interesting, it would be better if they took all that material and dropped it on the board members of AOL which owns HP and bang away at the fact that their property is engaged in a sophisticated program of antisemitism in THEIR name under the AOL brand. Here are those people:

If they're ok with this antisemitic program then fine, that's that and we can go about our day advertising it to the news (Not CBS which sits on their board) and let everyone know that the Board of AOL and its members freely hands out its brand, its name and its reputation to this.

I do think the Left, the Green Slush people, possibly some of your consulate people, etc have joined the US New Left, with their contingent of Jewish Dems... Some of the opinions and comments seem almost psychotically paterinalistic/suicidal to me at this point. Not to mention the leaders (yes, Shy Guy, the *rabbis*, includin the Israeli Rabbis delegitimizing rather than friendship building) holding their turf like our borderland gangbangers... here's some passing by. Read in their comments sections, too. OMG:
