The United Nations reportedly funds ANERA, but that doesn't deter Hani Almadhoun, the NGO's director of donor development, from completely disregarding or misusing UN Gaza data on everything from truck crossings to reconstruction.

As The Los Angeles Times promises truth, accuracy and quality journalism, CAMERA calls on editors to either substantiate or retract the dubious claim that the flow of water into Gaza is facing increasingly severe restrictions.
The New York Times claimed that the Gaza Strip "has been racked by shortages of medicine and water after years of a blockade by Israel and Egypt." In fact, the West Bank-based Palestinian government is responsible for a scarcity in medicine, and overpumping from Gaza's aquifer has degraded the territory's water supply.
The Gaza Strip is ruled by a terror organization that has attacked Gaza's border crossings, violently seized absolute power, and built attack tunnels into Israel. Still, the amount of goods Israel transfers into the territory has exponentially increased. All this information, and more, is missing from Viceland's program on Gaza's tunnels.
According to the UN, more than 40,000 truckloads of construction material have crossed from Israel to the Gaza Strip since June 2010. So why are many media outlets reporting that Israel this week lifted a five-year ban?
On a regular basis, The Huffington Post is a wasteland of biased and context-free reporting about Israel. During the current conflict between Israel and Hamas in the Gaza Strip, The Huffington Post has hit a new low.
