What More Context Could Possibly Be Missing Here?
I just discovered that the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review has its own Mideast correspondent, Betsy Hiel.
How much context could this Gaza dispatch be lacking? An awful lot. There is no mention of:
- The Israeli disengagement.
- The Egyptian border, which is also blockaded.
- Hamas's genocidal intentions towards Israel, as set out in its charter.
- Gaza's slowl improving economy, including Israel's lifting of many restrictions.
And the Hamas takeover of Gaza? That was just a "violent clash" with Fatah.
I can't remember reading a more useless piece of journalism.
