Uphill struggle

On CNN this morning, Wolf Blitzer sets up a segment on the Gaza crisis. Says Wolf: An Israeli operation in Gaza turns deadly with an Israeli soldier killed. In fairness Wolf then went to an interview with Mustapha Barghouti who recounted specific cases of civilian casualties that he had seen. But when Barghouti mentioned that they were being treated in Jerusalem Wolf challenged him as if to say that means the Israelis are being nice and opening the border for medical needs. Barghouti explained that the Israelis won't let ambulances cross the border. Instead, critically injured people have to switch vehicles.

Maybe Wolf was having a bad day, wishing that he was in Kiev.

For the Palestinians every day is a bad day.
