Kevin Myers writes, in the Irish Independent of Friday 25 May, 2009:

“Google Amnesty International and Hamas, and you will find many, many condemnations by Amnesty of Israel; but you will have to work very hard indeed to find Amnesty’s condemnations of Hamas. Yes, there are some, but they are seriously muted in comparison to Amnesty’s almost daily condemnations of Israel, though the latter has not executed any prisoners.”

Challenged by Colm O’Gorman of the Last Word later on Friday evening, Myers asserted that he “had to find, look very hard up googling on the search engine I was using for a condemnation of Hamas.”

Well, actually…

And in case you’re wondering, I checked Bing too. The third hit is an Irish Amnesty page condemning Hamas.

I don’t think I need continue until I reach 200 words. It is demonstrated.
