Palestine: What Corruption?
But it's AP, right? So there's sure to be something really stupid in the story. And sure enough, one paragraph from the end they let 'er rip:
Gaza's economy was already in the doldrums before the Israeli assault, a result of five years of Israeli-Palestinian violence and an international aid boycott that followed Hamas' parliamentary election victory in January. The Israeli assault threatened to turn a bad situation into a disaster _ underscoring the extent to which hopes have been dashed following the optimism that accompanied Israel's pullout.Nary a word about the billions of aid dollars stolen by Yassir and his Yass Men, not a peep about rampant corruption. The Israel-Palestine violence as opposed to the Palestine-Israel violence?
Israel has the power to turn the massive mess that is Palestine into a disaster? Oh, please. Palestine is the definition of disaster.
