Article: Israel hit on blockade

Date: Wednesday, December 1, 2010

This article reported on mostly unnamed groups, referred to as human rights organizations, criticizing Israel and claiming its easing of its "economic blockade" has had little effect and done little to improve the lives of Palestinians."

Bias. Omission. Misleading: The article omitted any mention of the reason for Israel's naval blockade: the prevention of weapons smuggling to terrorists in Gaza. It also omitted mentioning that so many goods are being transferred from Israel to Gaza that merchants in Gaza are actually exporting some of those goods to Egypt, where supplies are scarcer are prices are higher.


Factual Accuracy: 7
Bias-Free: 3
Pro-Israel: 0
Anti-Israel: 5
