Vultures; AP, AFP reporters trash Israel in secret Facebook group

A “secret” Facebook group of foreign correspondents and human rights activists quickly devolved into an anti-Israel hate-fest on Tuesday following the release of a new Israeli government report that cleared the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) of wrongdoing in the 2000 death of a Palestinian boy.

The Israeli government report contests the claim that the IDF killed a Palestinian boy, Muhammad al-Durrah, in a famous 2000 incident in Gaza that helped ignite the Second Intifada.

Journalists and activists mocked the report, attacked the IDF, and claimed pro-Israel lobbyists were influencing the media coverage, in a private Facebook group for foreign correspondents known as the “Vulture Club.”

Peter Bouckaert, a senior official at Human Rights Watch, dismissed the report as “typical IDF lies.”

I’m beginning to think this whole AP wiretapping was a ruse to cover the fact that they were really investigating Rosen and 4 other Fox reporters. Now they secretly trash Israel. They don’t seem to be to concerned about the DOJ investigation.

No surprise that Al Gore sold his network to Middle Eastern jihadists.

Thanks Nachum.
