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:

  1. The Israeli disengagement.
  2. The Egyptian border, which is also blockaded.
  3. Hamas's genocidal intentions towards Israel, as set out in its charter.
  4. 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.
