The Henkin family.

HenkensOn October 1, 2015, Palestinian terrorists machine-gunned to death Rabbi Eitam Henkin (31), an American citizen, and wife Naama (30) in front of their four children, ages 9, 7, 4, and 9 months. Security forces arrested members of Hamas cell responsible.

The Huffington Post never published this story on either its front page or World page.  This stands in sharp contrast to stories about alleged Israeli wrongdoing, and Palestinians who make allegations against Israel, or meet misfortune, which HuffPost consistently places on its front page and/or World page, and often leaves them up for 2, 3 or more days in a row (details). Nor did HuffPost give any coverage to the funeral for the Henkins, which was attended by thousands of Israelis – in contrast to the front-page, graphic coverage it gives to Palestinian Muslims.

The only thing HuffPost published about the Henkin murders was a sidebar editorial, near the bottom of a page that was well beyond view of the casual reader (“Middle East”), and was removed soon thereafter.

This may explain why, as of November 28, 2015, it generated zero reader comments:

HuffPost also ignored the fact that members of Fatah, the terrorist group that’s part of the Palestinian Authority (which the U.S. funds), were photographed handing out candies in the West Bank, to celebrate the “heroic” murder of the Henkins:

So which “news” stories did HuffPost decide were more deserving of front-page coverage than Palestinian terrorists murdering the Henkins – in front of their children?

And not just coverage – but stories in which HuffPost included pictures of the faces of the victims, and their personal stories?

A cat that was killed:

A convicted murderer who was executed:

And “the grossest thing in your home”:
