Ilene Prusher strikes again! The Christian Science Monitor staff writer on Palestinian affairs can never disappoint. Give her any assignment and she is sure to screw the Palestinians with it.
And ruin my morning. And it's mother's day today!
Her latest handiwork is this article on the increased influence of Al Qua'eda in Gaza. I just posted an article by Khalid Amayreh on the same topic. Unlike Amayreh, Prusher manages the amazing feat of talking about Gaza and the increased influence of the salafis without once, not once, mentioning the Israeli occupation or the international embargo. Gaza, according to her article, exists in a vaccum or a bubble. Israel is light years far a way and is only mentioned when its experts comment and analyze as neutral observers who watch from a distance. These experts hardly have anything to say about the topic at hand, but they do go on and on about Iran and Hizballah, who have nothing to do with Al Qa'eda, to create the spooky Hizbo effect Prusher insists on for her articles.
Bravo Prusher! You did it. Again and again.
