Hezbollywood e as mentiras do "jornalismo de causas"
Media Lies and Hezbollah's Human Shields. Por Jacob Laksin.
Whereas Israel makes every effort to avoid civilians, Hezbollah not only does not have a similar policy but actually regards attacks on civilians as a legitimate strategy--even when those civilians are Muslims. As Hala Jaber has noted, “Religious scholars have, according to Hezbollah, deduced that if the enemy uses Muslims as human shields, then Muslim fighters can kill them in their quest to eliminate the enemy.” Hezbollah has justified its own use of human shields on similarly utilitarian grounds, reasoning, in Jaber’s summary, that “any action which constrains the enemy and foils their schemes is permissible under Islam.”
