UK Indymedia on Hamas
It's not very surprising, but when the USA came barging in and tried to impose democracy on the middle-east at gunpoint, the people have overwhelmingly voted for religious parties that hate the USA. The Shia and Sunni religious parties in Iraq ( the former connected to Iran, the latter deeply connected to the Iraqi resistance ), and Hamas in Palestine.Like Indymedia. Elsewhere on the site, an article asks "Why don’t we know what is going on in Israel & Palestine?"
If it wasn't tragic it would be funny.
Could it be Indymedia is part of the problem? UK Indymedia has repeatedly censored comments which were not critical of Israel. Melbourne Indymedia's contribution to current affairs, is recycling two year old material.
Terrorist group Hamas, win an election yesterday, and the best you can do is recycle some anti-Israel 'news' from two years ago?... Who said Indymedia couldn't compete with mainstream media...
