When Associated Press reporting ignores their subjects active roles in violence at the Gaza border - by Joe Truzman

...The article isn’t entirely misleading, but it does not give us the entire story on some of the Palestinians discussed. Their membership in Palestinian border units commanded by members of militant groups, and their active roles in violence at the Gaza border, puts them in grave danger of being injured, a factor which is entirely missing from the article. More research on the subjects would have revealed their membership in these violent units and would have likely changed the article dramatically.

Mohammed Al-Esawei

According to the AP article, Mohammed Al-Esawei was shot several times while throwing rocks with a slingshot. What the article does not mention is Al-Esawei’s membership in one of the Palestinian border units and his violent activities against IDF soldiers at the Gaza border.

Here we see Al-Esawei’s Palestinian border group, called “Confusion Unit.” One of the members throws an explosive towards the security fence at the Gaza border. You can see Al-Esawei when he shows his face to the camera.
