Once again, an Associated Press story smearing Israel conceals more facts than it reveals.
In this week’s “Israel Prevents Palestinians From Free Movement”, an AP “reporter” describes the sufferings of the Palestinians while concealing the true authors of their plight.

The UN won’t help: it has a long history of abetting and enabling the murderous thugs who have gotten their people into this fix. The UN seems to exist only to condemn Israel; 21 out of the 27 General Assembly resolutions condemn Israel — the one true democracy in the Middle East.
And the AP doesn’t help matters by trying to distract readers from the real issue.
