    How bad are things in the Gaza strip really?

  • The NYTimes ran a very similar piece yesterday, prompted by a UN “report”.

    When Israel pulled out, NGOs funded the purchase of hi-tech greenhouses from the Israelis, for the purpose of giving them to the Palestinaians. They trashed the greenhouses, and were proud of themselves.

    They deserve their misery.

    I was listening to John Batchelor’s program daily back 05. The week the Israelis pulled out of Gaza, he broadcast the whole week from the border there. If I remember rightly, he reported that, in their typically ergetically self-destructive fashion, the esteemable Palestinians managed to completely destroy the greenhouses and stip the pipes and cart off every saleable piece of equipment and metal in just a matter of hours.

    How could it be anything but prejudice?

    ” One doesn’t know whether to blame this pattern of one-sided reporting on ignorance, prejudice, or stupidity. ”

    This “one” does. The ignorance is willful, the prejudice is of long standing.

    “Incompetence or bias…”

    Google BBC+Israel+bias = 4,650,000 entries.

    In 2004, the BBC commissioned a report on its own bias, then refused to publish it.
