WND's Klein Again Grants Anonymity to Terrorists
Topic: WorldNetDaily

We've detailed how WorldNetDaily loves to grant anonymity for seemingly everyone he interviews -- including terrorists, in total contradiction of WND editor Joseph Farah's assertion that Klein "doesn't use anonymous sources when he quotes senior terrorist leaders in Gaza and many of the most prominent Islamists in the world."

Klein does exactly that once again in an Oct. 11 WND article, in which he cites anonymous "Hamas leaders" as denying that an agreement has been reached for the release of Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit, who was captured in 2006 by Palestinian militants during a raid on his military outpost.

Klein curiously cites only the Middle East satellite network Al Arabiyya as reporting Shalit's imminent release. In fact, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has also made the claim.

So Klein is apparently taking the word of Middle Eastern terrorists over the right-wing head of Israel. Nice.
