The Guardian's Terror Link
There's links to terror and then there are hyperlinks to terror. On The Guardian's Israel and the Palestinian territories page, the paper has decided to include in its list of "Useful Links" a web site labeled "Hamas military wing".
Clicking the link takes you to an English language site calling itself "The Ezzedeen Al Qassam Brigades Information Office." I'm not linking to this so-called Info Office precisely because it is a terror site. Here's a screen grab.
And here's a screen grab of the Hamas web site The Guardian considers useful:
This Hamas "armed wing" is listed on the UK Home Office's Proscribed Terrorist Organizations. So in addition to making the paper arguably culpable for Hamas' incitement, The Guardian's link may be illegal.
Legal issues aside, just who is Hamas' web site "useful" to? How can The Guardian make a statement that Hamas -- which introduced suicide bombings to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and brainwashes children for martyrdom -- has any equivalence to the other organizations whose links are also listed?

Its unprofessional and embarrassing, if not illegal. And if its not illegal in the UK, it should be.
I wonder what US and Canadian laws say about this.
What is with so many Brits and their anti-Semitism? The Independent, The Guardian, BBC...it's quite sad.
