The Hamas' PR campaign and MSM complicity

Soccer Dad has done a roundup that will leave you agape. Really. Some people disagree that Palestinian PR leaves its Israeli counterpart standing, but here you are. I especially love the candles piece:

In the first case, journalists who were invited to cover the Hamas government meeting were surprised to see Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh and his ministers sitting around a table with burning candles.

In the second case on Tuesday, journalists noticed that Hamas legislators who were meeting in Gaza City also sat in front of burning candles.

But some of the journalists noticed that there was actually no need for the candles because both meetings were being held in daylight.
Some may say that it's just crude and obvious propaganda, but after reading Soccer Dad's review you will agree that the results are simply amazing.

Ehehe. There are some people that need some candles... or some hot pokers. But it's definitely not the Hamas' spin masters who do an excellent job.
