AP’s Self-contradicting Settler-Editors
Staffed almost exclusively by Israeli nationals and Jewish immigrants living illegally as settlers in the Palestinian West Bank, The Associated Press' West Jerusalem bureau is the global central hub for Israeli apologetics.
Not a day goes by in which editors like Josef Federman and bureau chief Steven Gutkin do not perpetrate a fraud on their readers for the sake of minimizing Palestinian suffering and Israeli culpability therefor. (This is on top of Mr. Gutkin's blatant and unrepentant lies about the so-called threat of the Iranian nuclear program.)
Sometimes in their efforts to demonize the victim, they forget to act like editors, making the silliest mistakes. These can include basic spelling, punctuation, and sometimes grammatical errors; while on rarer occasions, they'll repeat entire paragraphs, back-to-back.
But these are honest mistakes.
