Hamas media: In Arabic, bloodthirsty celebrations of death. In English, liberal rhetoric and victimhood.

This is what the autotranslated Arabic version of Hamas mouthpiece Al Resalah looks like for its Arab audience:

Articles extolling rocket fire, celebrating dead Israelis, exhorting Israeli Arabs to start an uprising, promises for more bloodshed.

Here's the English version, directed at the Western anti-Israel, primarily leftist audience:

Here, the emphasis is on victimhood, quoting Ilhan Omar and Tayyip Erdogan on how awful Israel is, and "defending" Al Aqsa. 

The two messages are exactly opposite. And the West insists on believing what Palestinians say in English without realizing that everything is propaganda - in both languages.
