Mourning terrorists

I noticed this earlier, and quietly wondered to myself why the media seems so obsessed with showing the pain and misery Palestinians display -- when their militants are killed by Israel. "Israel Kills Nine". Hmm. They were all Hamas.

Elder of Zyon at Israellycool blog notices this too, I hope he doesn't mind me reproducing it here:

Here is one of the few pictures on the wire services about the funeral of 73-year old Lyubov Razdolskaya, victim of yesterday’s terror attack:

Israelis stand near the grave of Lyubov Razdolskaya, 73, killed in a suicide attack in Dimona Monday, after her funeral in the southern Israeli town of Beer Sheva, Tuesday, Feb. 5, 2008.

Meanwhile, I see dozens of pictures of Palestinian Arabs mourning - not mourning innocent victims of attacks, but mourning terrorists killed by Israel:

The Israeli mourners are seen from a distance, dispassionately, disinterestedly.

The Palestinian Arab mourners, on the other hand, are shown close up, as individuals who have gone through a tragedy.

And there are dozens of photos of Arab mourners, but only a handful of pictures from the Dimona funeral.

To the wire services, only one side is deserving of sympathy - the side that mourns and supports terrorists.

You have to admit though that the relatives of murderous terrorists always put on a good show for the cameras when one of their thugs is executed.
Discharging firearms into the sky, wailing uncontrollably, and beating ones breasts is probably considered more photogenic by the media whores than a typical western style funeral.
