MSM: Only one side mourns

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.

UPDATE: A couple of commenters here and at Israellycool pointed out that the relatives of the victim requested no media coverage, so this is perhaps a bit unfair - in this case.
