Today is a sentence. March forth!
Can you say, “fake outrage over a visit that hasn’t even been planned”? If it’s starting to feel like 2001 all over again, that’s because Hamas and its puppets are manufacturing outrage over the rumor–rumor–that President Obama might visit the Temple Mount. Of course he won’t. I know that. You know that. And Hamas knows that. But the outrage mill is working overtime, and it’s getting media attention, and it’s a way for the terrorists to pretend that riots and threats against Israelis are “protests”. You can always count on the anti-Israel press for that.
Speaking of the anti-Israel press: The AP Headline: Israel blames Hamas for keeping shut Gaza crossing. The actual story: Hamas is pressuring a Palestinian contractor not to go to work in order to keep the crossing shut. So while the headline is technically true, the Fox News headline is far more accurate and unbiased.
Israeli military says Hamas pressured Palestinian contractor to keep Gaza cargo crossing shut
This is where I remind you of how much I loathe the AP anti-Israel writers and editors. Meantime, Xinhua, the Chinese state news agency that also tends anti-Israel, manages to get the facts straight.
Gaza’s Hamas government mulls changes on the mechanisms of operating the only commercial crossing point between the coastal enclave and Israel, which might lead to the closure of it, a Palestinian National Authority (PNA) official revealed Sunday.
The West Bank-based official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said Hamas’ “meddling” may obstruct the work at Kerem Shalom crossing.
When the house organ of a Communist state is more accurate than the Associated Press, you have to just hang your head in shame if you belong to the AP. Or you would, if you had any shame.
Gaza’s Hamas rulers say they will begin a new campaign to find Palestinian collaborators with Israel.
Note how blithely the AP uses the word “collaborators” when naming Palestinian spies, and yet, people like, say, Mordechai Vanunu, an actual traitor who stole nuclear secrets and gave them to the British press, are “whistleblowers”. Yet another example of the subtle anti-Israel bias that runs through the AP and the anti-Israel media.
And now, I think I’m going to go find some videos of kittens on YouTube to get the ugliness of the AP out of my head.
