Politiken-artikel bygget på HAMAS-løgne

I mandsags kunne jeg blogge om endnu et terrorist-forkælende angreb på Israel i Politiken. Terror-organisationen HAMAS´ påstande om en Israelsk blokade af Gaza-striben hvad angik lattergas til at bedøve kirurgiske patienter blev taget for gode varer, og brugt som afsæt til at lade Human Rights Watch give landet endnu et par hug.

Mens jeg i mandags pillede HAMAS´ og HRW´s forlorne påstande om Israelsk forfølgelse af syge arabere fra hinanden var det dog lidt svært at pille selve historien om lattergassen fra hinanden, da de relle begivenheder endnu ikke var kommet for dagens lys. Det er de imidlertid nu, og som forventet viser HAMAS´historier sig endnu engang at være løgne:
Hamas is unnecessarily endangering Palestinian civilians in the Gaza Strip by generating phony humanitarian crises, head of the Gaza Coordination Liaison Administration (CLA) Col. Nir Press said Monday.

On Sunday night, Gaza's Shifa Hospital claimed that due to tight Israeli restrictions on imports into Gaza, it had run out of anesthetic for surgeries, and as a result had canceled all but the most critical procedures.

In an interview with The Jerusalem Post on Monday, Press dismissed the claims and said that in a meeting he held Sunday afternoon with Palestinian Health Ministry officials he was informed that the hospitals were running "low" on the anesthetic. On Monday morning, less than 24 hours after making the request, Israel transferred 151 nitrous oxide gas balloons to Shifa Hospital.

"It is the Palestinians' responsibility to order the supplies," Press said, noting that despite the daily rocket attacks on Israeli towns - on Monday 10 rockets and shells pounded the western Negev - Israel continued to transfer medical goods and supplies into Gaza whenever they were ordered.

Press said that orders were usually placed by the Palestinians days in advance and that Sunday's sudden announcement "was a spin by Hamas and an attempt to put pressure on Israel by creating a humanitarian crisis."

He said that the incident resembled Palestinian claims a few months ago that due to Israeli restrictions on the crossings they ran out of gas needed to operate the Gaza power plant and as a result large parts of the Strip were left without electricity for several days. Also then, Press said, Hamas unnecessarily disrupted Palestinian civilians' lives to try to create an image that a humanitarian crisis was developing in Gaza.

Og igen faldt Politiken for løgne-historien. Og mig bekendt har avisen ikke valgt at bringe ovenstående baggrund.
