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.
