Hamas Loses Satellite, Not Legitimacy
The Hamas-run Al-Aqsa TV will lose most of its viewers when a French satellite provider drops service on Thursday. In explaining the significance, AP hits the nail on the head:
The Hamas station - best known for its children's programs glorifying violence against Israel - is the centerpiece of a growing media operation of Gaza's Islamic militant Hamas rulers. Losing the satellite provider will hamper the group's attempts to spread its message and raise funds abroad.
Heh: Hamas is enjoying more than enough legitimacy without Eutelsat.
