      AP Falsely Casts Israel As Responsible For Providing Palestinians With Vaccines

      "Palestinians are not taken seriously as agents of their own fate,” charged former AP correspondent Matti Friedman in his scathing 2014 critique of international coverage of Israel and the Palestinians. AP's article Thursday falsely casting Israel as responsible for the Palestinians' supply of coronavirus vaccines perfectly illustrates this old formulation.

Any reporter who fails to ask such questions is either unaware of the basic facts, or is a propagandist. Either way it is inexcusable.
