Backgrounders on Hamas

It is interesting to see how media outlets are writing their background, color articles on Hamas.

Somehow, suicide bombs and attacks against civilians are now relegated to minor side points. Here are links to articles that are backgrounders on Hamas and which paragraph they mention attacks against Israeli civilians:

Times of London: paragraph 7.
BBC - paragraph 5.
Xinhua - paragraph 11 (barely)
AP - paragraph 4

On the contrary, the Jerusalem Post printed parts of the Hamas charter, and Arutz Sheva listed major terror attacks by Hamas.
