Now campare this to the viral NY Magazine article based on “reporting” by Sheera Frenkel of Buzzfeed and Jon Dannisson of the BBC, NY Magazine’s contribution to the propaganda war against Israel:
Assuming the translation of the speech is correct, NY Magazine owes not just a large, prominent correction, but an apology. And the two reporters should stop pretending that they were anything but sloppy.

to the full extent allowed by law.
If there is justice, a few weeks or months from now, an ordinary fellow of nondescript appearance will approach Haruri, who will feel a brief pinch that he will ascribe to having been bumped into, or old age. Some time later, he will feel ill, then take to bed, then dying after more days or months, probably in considerable pain. Blaming it on the Mossad will seem like the typical Arab conspiracy theory, and will be laughed off by most. But Haruri will be dead, his compatriots will be afraid, and a few gentlemen in Israel will raise a drink to a job well-done.
I said it before: if I was a father in Gaza, I would be hunting Ham-ass.
Doing what Allah tells them:
ARTICLE SEVEN – The Universality of the Islamic Resistence Movement
… The Prophet, Allah bless him and grant him salvation, has said:
“The Day of Judgement will not come about until Moslems fight the Jews (killing the Jews), when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The stones and trees will say O Moslems, O Abdulla, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him…
ARTICLE THIRTEEN – Peaceful Solutions, Initiatives and International Conferences
Initiatives, and so-called peaceful solutions and international conferences, are in contradiction to the principles of the Islamic Resistance Movement.
… There is no solution for the Palestinian question except through Jihad. Initiatives, proposals and international conferences are all a waste of time and vain endeavors.
And this is part of the reason that I strongly advocate TRUE war with Hamas, and Napalm bombing of the Gaza Strip until EVERY fighter throws down their weapon and BEGS FOR MERCY, and then agrees to leave and go anywhere except the West Bank and NEVER return.
I’ll paraphrase it again: WAR isn’t about playing nice. There is only ONE rule: WIN. War is about defeating and killing your enemies until they throw down their weapons and adopt YOUR way of life.
It’s well past time that Hamas understood the HORROR of what they have wrought, revisited upon them.
Sheera Frenkel and Jon Dannisson should’ve been the defense counsel at Nuremberg.
“You can’t blame the Nazis for what some Nazi cells did.”

Getting good and timely translations of what Islamists say amongst themselves is a necessity.
Gee, what a shock. Not.
