Where is the connection between French public TV and Hamas?

In France yesterday, France 2 – a public national television network – aired footage they indicated was shot the morning of Jan. 1 after an Israeli bombing raid. Unfortunatley for France 2, the report – surprise, surprise – is fake.

So, is there a mole in France 2 that has ties to the terrorist organization Hamas? Maybe a sympathizer? Ya gotta ask the question. I guess this is my first example of Europe’s drive by media.

From Haaretz.com, with a hat tip to Powerline.

The footage aired on Channel 2 on Tuesday afternoon showed dozens of dead bodies, including Hamas gunmen and citizens, which the channel said were killed by an IAF bombing raid on January 1st. It later came to light that the channel had instead aired footage of the devastation caused after a truck full of explosives blew up in the Jabaliya Refugee Camp.

Yup, the guys – terrorists – blew themselves up while moving through a refugee camp. Just their style.

Just think how much crap environmental organizations give the military when they want to move ordinance around the United States.

Update: Atlas Shrugs picked up on the story today.
