There isn’t room for any doubt about “The Independent’s” obsession with the Palestinian narrative and how driven they are to portray the conflict through their limited lens. The owners son, Evgeny-Lebedev confirms all our fears by choosing his first interview subject with none other than “The Prime Minister of Gaza”. So any thoughts of feeling slightly apprehensive when using his formal diplomatic title despite Hamas’s appalling human rights record, and without seemingly looking as if they’re championing him in the court public opinion are completely out of question. As the Independent is a card carrying member of every aspect Palestinian cause no matter how brutal and morally corrupt he so-called resistance is.
There’s no mention of Hamas being a theocratic dictatorship who stone women on public beaches and throw political opponents off rooftops regardless being bed-ridden in hospitals. Perhaps its too much detail for our Evgeny and his excitement in having access to controversial figures wont allow him to cast a critical eye.
Little Evengy thanks to Daddy has much wealth but no class and imagination and the interview is full of the party line where in the end you wonder why Hamas weren’t given the noble peace prize years ago.
The fact the owner of The Independent makes his first formal appointment with the “Prime Minister of Gaza” is all you need to know him and the politics of the Independent newspaper. Absolutely no mention of Hamas racist charter calling for Israels elimination (Which guys is still fucking important to include) Plus the indiscriminate acts of mass killings on women and children inside Israel well the list goes on and on and on….
So here’s the bullshit interview in full view and photos of the cuddly Haniyeh.
History will not judge the Independent newspaper favorably and when Russian oligarchs tire of losing money and not needing trophy assets such as running a British newspaper, these journalists who act as usefuls will have a lot of time perhaps to regret how allowing murderers and abuses of women, human rights were portrayed so positive and easily so.
