The rancid nature of Fairfax propaganda journalism can no better be summed up by the opening paragraph of Paul McGeough's effort in today's Age:
"THE Israeli attack was timed for dawn prayers - when a large number of the men aboard the Mavi Marmara were praying on the aft deck of the Turkish passenger ferry, as she motored steadily through international waters in the eastern Mediterranean Sea."
Good try Paul but we've seen the vision of what really happened. The thugs who attacked Israeli troops as they boarded the flotilla's suicide ship were wielding metal pipes, guns and slingshots - not prayer books.
Joseph Goebbels would have been proud of your efforts.
Thanks to all those who pointed out the sheer stupidity that came from one of the imbeciles quoted in McGeough's article (and therefore a reflection on the writer):
"Matthias Gardel, a leader of the Swedish Palestinian support group, confirmed that the soldiers had been beaten, but insisted that those involved were unarmed and that in keeping with the ship's non-violent charter, the soldiers' weapons were thrown overboard."
(oh, I forgot to mention that in keeping with our peaceloving principles we also threw the unconscious soldier overboard)
