Article: Israel says it won't allow aid ship to reach Gaza

Date: July 12, 2010

This is a short article reporting on Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman saying "an aid ship sent by a Libyan group" would not be allowed to reach Gaza.

Misleading: The article refers to the ship as an "aid" ship without referring to the fact that it is primarily a propaganda effort.

Omission. Bias: The article refers to this ship coming "just over a month after Israeli commandos killed nine activists in a raid at sea" without mentioning the fact that the "activists" were armed and trained IHH operatives who attacked the Israelis.


Factual Accuracy: 8
