Studies show that US coverage is Israeli-centric. The main bureaus for CNN, Associated Press, Time, etc. are located in Israel and often staffed by Israelis. The son of the NY Times bureau chief is in the Israeli army;"pundit" Jeffrey Goldberg served in the IDF; Wolf Blitzer worked for AIPAC. Because the U.S. gives Israel over $8 million/day - more than to any other nation - we feel it is essential that we be fully informed on this region. Below are news reports to augment mainstream coverage.

Limited goods to be allowed into Gaza

Ma’an- Israeli authorities will allow limited deliveries of goods and humanitarian aid into the Gaza Strip on Monday, Palestinian officials said.

Liaison officer Raed Fattouh told Ma’an that Israeli officials notified the Palestinian side they will allow entry of 260 truckloads of supplies into Gaza through the southernmost Kerem Shalom crossing.

Fattouh said 8 trucks would bring building materials for a project funded by the German Development Agency, while ten trucks would bring cement for water authorities’ projects. Meanwhile, 50 trucks would bring gravel for UN-funded projects.

Limited quantities of domestic-use gas will also be pumped into the Gaza Strip, Fattouh added.
