Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has come out swinging against liberal media networks, exposing their journalists for being embedded in photographs with Hamas terrorists during a recent attack. Netanyahu did not hold back, calling these photojournalists “accomplices in crimes against humanity.” He specifically condemned mainstream media outlets such as Reuters, The Associated Press, CNN, and The New York Times for working with known terrorist groups.

The Prime Minister’s office is taking this matter seriously, viewing the actions of these photojournalists as a violation of professional ethics. The National Public Diplomacy Directorate is demanding immediate action and has reached out to the media organizations to seek clarifications. Israel’s Minister of Communications, Dr. Shlomo Karhi, echoed these sentiments and wrote a scathing letter to the liberal outlets, challenging them to choose between “life and good” or “depraved terrorism, inhumanity, and evil.”
Photographs circulated online showing journalists standing near Hamas terrorists, raising allegations that they were complicit in the attacks that resulted in the deaths of over 1,400 Israelis. This incident further highlights the ongoing criticism faced by news agencies for their use of photographers sympathetic to anti-Israel terrorist groups. Breitbart, an influential conservative news outlet, expressed their thoughts on the matter, emphasizing that these biased photographers are often the only ones permitted to work in the region by groups like Hamas and Hezbollah.
