Charlotte, NC — Saturday brought about the continuation of the conflict between Israel and Palestine. Of course, we all know by now that the terrorist group Hamas is launching rockets from the Palestinian area toward Israel. Thousands of rockets have been launched resulting in injury and destruction. Israel has defended itself, with the support of President Joe Biden.
On Saturday, the radical left continued their misinformation campaign about the conflict when Israel struck The Associated Press offices that were located in Gaza. The office housed multiple media outlets and spurred outrage from the AP, Democrats, and mainstream media across the world who want to label Israel as horrible and ruthless.
The AP President and CEO issued a statement saying he was shocked and horrified that the Israeli military would target their building. You can see the statement below.
The Associated Press on Twitter: “AP President and CEO Gary Pruitt says he’s “shocked and horrified that the Israeli military would target and destroy the building housing AP’s bureau and other news organizations in Gaza.” Pruitt says AP is seeking information from the Israeli government. https://t.co/0s22koImto / Twitter”

The official statement talks about how a dozen journalists were inside the building and that they narrowly escaped. But that does not seem entirely true. In fact, reports are that the AP received at least an hours notice from the Israeli government that the strike was going to occur. Video emerged on Twitter showing the journalists packing their things to exit the building.

That does not seem like they “narrowly” escaped the building. But you certainly will not hear that story from the radical left and mainstream media.
A former member of the press corps wrote an article for left-wing media outlet The Atlantic back in 2014 outlining reporters in situations such as this. He actually mentioned this Gaza City office of the AP in his article. His comments were:
When Hamas’s leaders surveyed their assets before this summer’s round of fighting, they knew that among those assets was the international press. The AP staff in Gaza City would witness a rocket launch right beside their office, endangering reporters and other civilians nearby—and the AP wouldn’t report it, not even in AP articles about Israeli claims that Hamas was launching rockets from residential areas.
But mainstream media across the United States believes that we will simply believe the story that they are selling. The one that the AP did not know anything about the incoming attack and narrowly escaped in a heroic act. Even though they have been willingly withholding information amid this conflict for years.
We simply cannot trust our mainstream media outlets for anything anymore. They alter the story, withhold the truth, and tell us what they want us to believe. We have members of our Congress calling for the US to abandon Israel. Members of Antifa joining anti-Israel groups to protest and cause chaos in cities across the country. We are told that Israel is full of ruthless warmongers who simply want to eliminate the Palestinians.
As I have mentioned multiple times, Israel has offered peace deal after peace deal. They have met and held their ends of the cease-fire agreements. Each time, those are violated by the Palestinian terror groups as more rockets are launched toward Israel. This has nothing to do with Israel being ruthless. It has everything to do with Israeli sovereignty, defending what is rightfully owned by the Israeli’s, and protecting their citizens.
