When checkpoints don’t matter

The rarely reliable Ma’an news agency, the voice of the Palestinian Authority (Fatah branch) is reporting today that

“Hamas security forces prevented a Fatah official from leaving the Gaza Strip to attend a meeting in Ramallah on Thursday. Amal Hamad, a member of Fatah’s central committee, said Hamas security forces prevented her from traveling despite having previously coordinated with Hamas through a Fatah official. “


For years Palestinian radicals and their sycophantic media allies have breathlessly declared that Israeli checkpoints and other security based travel restrictions constitute human rights violations of the highest order. Yet a Google search today reveals that not one news agency other than Ma’an (and The Mike Report) is reporting on this horrific violation of Ms. Hamad’s civil rights. 

Which is the inspiration for our Mike Report Cartoon of the Day…
