Obsession, thy name is Reuters

Michele Kambas, Reuters go-to correspondent in Cyprus, has just had her -- we kid you not -- 33rd story or update published in the last four days on the flotilla headed for Gaza.  This type of breathless play-by-play publicity for a propaganda stunt launched by a group enabling Palestinian terrorism and operating under false pretenses is simply grotesque, although par for the course at Reuters.

And in 33 iterations, Kambas fails to disclose any of the details on the "Free Gaza Movement" or its history of duplicity as revealed by the Elder of Ziyon website.

UPDATE MAY 31, 2010 5:52 AM: Following the inevitable clash at sea which turned violent after several members of the flotilla attacked Israeli marines who had boarded the ships, Reuters added 35 additional stories and updates to its website overnight including the predictable:
Palestinian leader calls killings at sea "massacre"
By way of comparison, Reuters published a mere 20 stories and updates during the entire week following the killing of 192 people in China in ethnic riots in July of 2009.  A further illustration of Reuters' obsessive focus on Israeli efforts to secure itself in a region openly hostile to its existence.

UPDATE MAY 31, 2010 8:38 AM: Thanks to the indefatigable Elder of Ziyon, here is a video from Israel's Channel 2 of one of the Hamas operatives on the boat stabbing an Israeli soldier in the back:

Will Reuters embed this video in one of its now 70+ stories on the flotilla?  (Rhetorical question).
