Hamas Propaganda of the Day

From the February 15th Jerusalem Post:
The CLA [the Israeli army's Gaza Coordination and Liaison Administration] gave the Post the names of several fatalities who it said had been classified by the Palestinians as "medics," but who it stated were Hamas fighters, including Anas Naim, the nephew of Hamas Health Minister Bassem Naim, who was killed during clashes with the IDF on January 4 in the Sheikh Ajlin neighborhood of Gaza City.

Following the clashes, the Palestinian press reported that Naim was killed and that he was a medic with the Palestinian Red Crescent. The Gaza CLA, however, produced photographs of Naim posing holding a rocket-propelled grenade launcher and a Kalashnikov assault rifle that had been posted on a Hamas Web site.

And yet, despite this revelation, the MSM will continue to quote the sources which claim him to have been a medic.

Al-Tiquaya (or something like that) encourages Islamic people to lie to nonIslamic people. How can we believe anything uttered by Islamic people?
