The Genius of Charles Johnson

In response to this piece by AFP (Which he headlines 'AFP Shills for Hamas again'), it is quite obvious that Charles Johnson is either so ideologically blind that he reads bias and twists news at will or that he is a complete and utter moron.

Here's the AFP piece.

RAFAH, Gaza Strip (AFP) - Seventy-year-old Naim Ahjazi needs just a half-hour — 45 minutes at most — to run across the border to Egypt and pick up the desperately-needed farm supplies that he paid for last week.

But the Hamas gunmen standing guard at the frontier are not moved — after nearly two weeks of unfettered access between Gaza and Egypt, the border is shut again.

“I paid for the supplies, but the shop was closed all day yesterday so I couldn’t pick them up,” says Ahjazi, his tanned face etched with despair and resignation as he looks over at the border just metres away.
Quite how this is 'shilling' for Hamas when the piece quite clearly points out that the Hamas gunmen were'nt moved by the plight of Naim Ahjazi. How is this 'shilling' for Hamas?

Oh and Charles Johnson's advice to 70 year old farmer Naim Ahjazi regarding his problems?

Easy way to make things better: stop trying to kill people.
Yes, because all Palestinians are terrorists aren't they Chuckles?

Why the use of "or"?

MJ, the reason I'm not giving the guy benefit of the doubt is this kind of crap. Notice that both posts are less than 24 hours apart.
