Another Arab work accident

The BBC has this report. It states among other things that
...two Palestinians have been killed in the southern Gaza Strip.
The Israeli army says they were militants trying to plant a bomb at a Jewish settlement near the town of Khan Yunis. The device went off prematurely.

Some Palestinian sources said the two men had been shot at by an Israeli tank, but the army said it was not involved in the incident.
Don't you just love it when that happens? Fuck around with explosives when you don't know what you're doing, and you may well be toast. And I can't help but cheer when the intended victims are Jews. Again.

But did you notice the BBC headline? "Three dead in Mid-East violence" Two of these assholes KILL THEMSELVES THROUGH SHEER STUPIDITY AND INEPTNESS, and the BBC neutrally reports "Three dead in Mid-East violence". It's not a lie, technically. But of course, given the context and history, it IS.
