Hamas Ends Truce With Israel

Our pals in Palestine are at it again, and their pals at the AP are right on top of it with an "it's all Israel's fault" slant to the story:

Hamas militants fired a barrage of rockets and mortar shells toward Israel on its independence day Tuesday, and said they considered it the end of a five-month truce with Israel.

Palestinian Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh, whose Hamas-led government negotiated the cease-fire with its militant wing, blamed Israel: "We made great efforts at keeping the truce and there was a positive Palestinian position, but unfortunately this position was met by expanding the aggression and escalating it against the Palestinian people," he said. "It's not a Palestinian problem, it is an Israeli problem."

Here's a journalism tip for the AP: replace "militants" with "terrorists" in the first sentence and give Israel equal time in the "he said/she said" portion of the article, and maybe, just maybe, it'll be considered to be less of a Palestinian press release and more of an actual news story.
