Hamas Strong-Arms Photo-Op
Why did Gaza’s Christian leaders attend Ismail Haniyah’s speech last week? According to WorldNetDaily, Rev. Artinious Alexious and Father Emanuel Salum had no choice:
According to sources in Gaza's Christian community speaking on condition of anonymity, Alexious and Salum were intimidated into attending the speech.
The P.R. value was limited as only reporters with Hamas-issued credentials could cover the speech. Nonetheless, this photo hit the wire services:
