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.

Almost a perfect start to a day when the Independent and Robert Fisk has been caught out.

BBC Website reports: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-14390301

On 15 April, the Independent published a feature headlined “A long time coming”, in which Mr Fisk gave his account of the so-called Arab Spring, a series of revolts in the Arab world. The article was reproduced on the newspaper’s website entitled: “The Arab awakening began not in Tunisia this year, but in Lebanon in 2005.”

In the article Mr Fisk said The Independent was in possession of the “extraordinary and outrageous” order from Prince Nayef and said it was “worthy of investigation by the International Criminal Court at The Hague”.

The allegation was not put to Prince Nayef, who is also second deputy prime minister and has been interior minister for more than 40 years, before publication, said Mr Earle.

It was reproduced in its entirety on various websites and paraphrased in numerous news stories published by leading Arabic language media, he said.

“In fact the ‘order’ was a fake and bore numerous features which any genuine orders issued by the Saudi Minister of the Interior would not bear,” said Mr Earle.

One wonders how many of Fisk’s reports have been products of his imagination?
