And why reporters wont talk about it.
The idea that one of Hamas main command bunkers is located beneath Shifa Hospital in Gaza City is one of the worst-kept secrets of the Gaza war. So why arent reporters in Gaza ferreting it out? The precise location of a large underground bunker equipped with sophisticated communications equipment and housing some part of the leadership of a major terrorist organization beneath a major hospital would seem to qualify as a world-class scoopthe kind that might merit a Pulitzer, or at least a Polk.
So why isnt the fact that Hamas uses Shifa Hospital as a command post making headlines? In part, its because the location is so un-secret that Hamas regularly meets with reporters there. On July 15, for example, William Booth of the Washington Post wrote that the hospital has become a de facto headquarters for Hamas leaders, who can be seen in the hallways and offices. Back in 2006, PBS even aired a documentary showing how gunmen roam the halls of the hospital, intimidate the staff, and deny them access to protected locations within the buildingwhere the camera crew was obviously prohibited from filming. Yet the confirmation that Hamas is using Gaza Citys biggest hospital as its de facto headquarters was made in the last sentence of the eighth paragraph of Booths storywhich would appear to be the kind of rookie mistake that is known in journalistic parlance as burying the lede.
But Booth is no rookiehes an experienced foreign reporter, which means that he buried the lede on purpose. Why?
reporting only the news that Hamas deems fit to print from Shifa Hospital isnt actually reporting at all: Its propaganda.

Because the LSM hates Jews as much as Hamas.
Islam is against western civilization. So is liberalism and the main stream media. That makes them allies.
You have to read the foreign press to know what’s happening that the US press won’t report.
Those towel-headed cockroaches will hide anywhere.
You’d think a military headquarters underneath a hospital would tell reporters something. Apparently not.
I agree, but I believe this particular news/website is based here in the states (NY).
which would appear to be the kind of rookie mistake that is known in journalistic parlance as burying the lede.
Or if you’re not a rookie, it’s called hard-hitting reporting. To non-reporters it’s known as lying.
Blow it all up.
FNC has been very high-pitched all day about this... apparently Israel is going to open up a much-delayed and deeply necessary infernal can of whoop-ass.
Do it, Bibi, speak to them in the only language they understand. They want to drive you into the sea? Drive them into hell.
There’s mountains in Gaza??
Here is the one in Gaza.
It's all bad when it comes to Islam.
Uh... I goofed.
Gaza Delenda Est
I wouldn’t doubt it. With lipstick imprints, no less.
GOOD! Bibi.....do eeeeeeeeeeeeet!!!!!1!!1!
Monte Cassino, thought to be an observation post, was bombed into ruins by the Allies in 2/44. A command center with a hospital facade is little different.
Once it sets into ‘Palestinians’ that Israel is fed up - and if I were in Gaza I’d sure realize - they SHOULD turn Hamas over to IDF.
When ‘Palestinians’ support Hamas, they get rubble. When they obliterate Hamas, they will get first-world, first-class infrastructure: hospitals, universities, food distribution systems, housing. Jobs.
I’m hoping the worm is turning against Hamas....
I hope so. in the mean time, Israel can do us all a favor and ‘splain to the savages what happens when you poke a nation state often enough.
And we bombed it into gravel.
All your base are belong to us.
How many Palestinians are worth one Israeli life?
According to Hamas, its over 1,000: “On 18 October 2011, he (Gilad Shalit) was released in a deal that secured his freedom after more than five years in isolation and captivity, in exchange for 1,027 Palestinian prisoners, including some convicted of multiple murders”
Most part I have to follow foreign press to see what’s happening at home. US press is on the side of Hamas and also incorrectly reports the fighting. It’s the Israelis that are doing all the war crimes according to ABCNBCCBS etc ....
There must be a bunker buster or flammable gas bomb big enough to take it out leaving a large sterile crater.
Yep. Rush said CNN is the Hamas Channel. They all are.
Even FNC has been showing rubble and putting reporters into the field that can only be needled by Prince whatsis from Saudi.
The anchors are revulsed by it, but paid footage of ‘Palestine’ is getting the air.
They are sheets.
Well I’m coming home after a four year job in Australia. I will still follow the foreign press to learn what’s really happening in the world. I read the Jerusalem Post and others.
Hospitals use a lot of water. Blow the water main, Water travels down hill... fill the bunker with water, preserve the hospital. Post snipers at mail exits, finish them off as the flee. As a demo, This happened near UCLA just this afternoon... http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/water-main-break-floods-ucla-campus-sunset-blvd-article-1.1884801

Drive ‘em into the Sea - it worked for Moses.
