Palestinian Arabs celebrate death of 6-year old Gazan

After ten frustrating days of not being able to provide the media with any pictures of dead kids that could be blamed on Israel, the Palestinian Arabs finally got their wish:

Never mind the fact that Israel had nothing to do with this explosion. Lying Palestinian Arabs claim that it was from Israel and gullible wire services are more than willing to believe it, because it fits in with their script. As AP reported in he caption for the picture above:
The Israeli military, backtracking on its previous denial of responsibility, said an airstrike in the area targeting a group of militants did not hit an open field, as it previously reported, but struck a street on the outskirts of Gaza City.
What AP failed to mention is that the two incidents have nothing to do with each other. So Israel has not backtracked at all on its denial - it has strengthened it.

So now the Palestinian Arabs who killed Ruwan Hajaj can smile as they blame Israel for her death, as they try to turn her into a new symbol of Jewish evil.

Meanwhile, something interesting happened in Reuters reporting in Australia. For some reason, the headline provided to every Australian source by Reuters was an unbelievably biased, while not for any other country:

I don't know exactly how wire services provide headlines, but someone at Reuters came up with a doozy to give Australians, making it look like warmongering Israel is rejecting Hamas' "peace" overture which doesn't include returning Gilad Shalit. Also not mentioned was what the peaceful Hamas thought of stopping rocket attacks:
Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) on Saturday denounced Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas' call for immediate stop of firing homemade rockets at southern Israeli target.

In a written statement, the ruling movement also condemned Abbas' call for releasing an Israeli soldier abducted by the three militant groups including Hamas armed wing during a deadly attack on an Israeli army post near Gaza border on June 25.
